    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Nov 27, 2017

    The idea of a super-family is a great one, as properties like The Incredibles have proven, but tying that to the life and times of Peter Parker makes for a nice update on that formula, and Annie May is a fun new addition to the various and sundry spider-women of Marvel history. Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #13 is well-drawn, featuring realistic family interactions and serves as a great jumping-on point for any new readers. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Harlan Ivester Dec 31, 2017

    All things considered, I would say Renew Your Vows’ new team is off to a great start. This issue didn’t blow me out of the water like previous entries did, but solid banter and a consistent pace throughout joined by some really enjoyable art made this a book that greatly soothed my worries for the title’s future. As I said, I wasn’t sure what to make of the creative team before reading this. Part of me wanted Renew Your Vows to end with Ryan Stegman’s time writing the book rather than see it take a significant dip in quality. Fortunately, my standards for the book are still being exceeded. This is definitely an addition I can really recommend. Check it out, have a happy new year, and be safe out there! Read Full Review

    Even though it seems some steps were taken back in the characters, there is a lot of potential as Renew Your Vows moves on to be an exciting and witty series that still has the heart of being a Spider-Man book. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Reed Hinckley-Barnes Nov 27, 2017

    The new creative team bring a fun energy to '8 Years Later' and though not much happens in this first issue, the character dynamics seem interesting enough to hope that in future issues, we can see a little bit more of the family as a whole. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Xavier Mendoza Dec 5, 2017

    Its good to see that the tone and quality of the book hasn't taken a massive hit, as many fans speculated was Marvel's intention by changing up the minds behind the book. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 26, 2017

    Renew Your Vows was previously a safe haven for those who hated what Dan Slott was doing on Amazing Spider-Man. With ASM shifting back to a more recognizable Spidey, and Zdarsky's Spectacular Spidey hitting its stride, RYV feels much less necessary. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray Nov 27, 2017

    The new creative team and direction of this title seem to have sent this book backwards as far as my enjoyment level goes. Everything feels off and it has really affected my overall opinion of this book at the moment. Who knew Legacy was also a good jumping off point. Read Full Review

    Ok the art isn't good ... Ok ... But the story still is. Marvel give trust on this one & keep a good artist please. That even already a hard title to sell (Totally disconnected to all other Marvel one), and Annie didn't deserve to fall in disgrace. She's a very strong character.
    Houser take the writing and do something good & fun. I loved this story maybe more simpler that the previous one, but good for that we take time to adapt on the change. But seriously we need & deserve a better art.

    Cover - 2/2 Love it and stick to the change inside, so good job.
    Writing - A little more and that will be a very good now beginning for the spider family 2/3
    Arts - 1/3, sorry but for this title I will be mine and be harder on my more

    Tbh I was really hesitant about continuing reading this book. But here I am. It was decent. The art was rather different than before and has a different, more cartoonish feel. Writing is ok, nothing over the top, but the plot is quite thin as not much happens. This is just an introduction, however. I hope it will get better.

    This was a pretty good start to the Legacy era of Renew Your Vows. I was very worried after Conway left, but Houser does a serviceable job picking up where he left off. The new status quo definitely helps the transition.

    Peter and MJ have apparently been in suspended animation for 8 years while Annie has turned into a stereotypical moody teen. Jody Houser's script is slow and safe and over-generic; Nick Roche's art is cartoony and rushed. His Peter Parker is particularly painful. This simplistic station-keeping exercise recognizes the promise of Renew Your Vows and debatably preserves it, but it seems too terrified to do anything constructive with it.

    Felt let down in this issue, and not a fan of the art. A bit too kidy cartoonish, especially with wolverine.

    Okay, full disclosure. I wanted RYV 2.0 to be good. In retrospect I should have known it wouldn't be. They replaced a veteran writer with a diversity hire, traded Stegmen for Nick Roche, and employed that laziest of gimmicks a time jump. I can't recommend this.
