    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 5, 2015

    If there ever was a event within an event this is it right here. Due to the nature of the story, such high stakes at play for our hero and the awesome art — you can't find a better tie-in right now. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Edward Wendt Aug 5, 2015

    The series succeeds because of its back-to-basic approach, as does this issue. Although the degree of Parker's use of violence is made out of character, the overall approach of the character here is one which feels like it could easily happen under these specific conditions. By using what makes the character special while also setting him inside the Secret Wars world, it benefits the crossover by highlighting these traits. This is the best treatment of Spider-Man in Secret Wars and it is among the best Secret Wars series overall. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Aug 5, 2015

    The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #3 demonstrates why the series is getting better with every installment. The comic expertly interweaves classic superhero drama with a mature family/personal drama that has been absent from the Spider-Man Universe for years. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Aug 6, 2015

    The ending is great too! With the story being a miniseries without the fear of being canon, almost everything can happen! I really can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Aug 6, 2015

    This is has been one of the most enjoyable of the Secret Wars tie-ins so far, and it's because it stands completely on its own as both an emotional, singular story and as an interesting study of the qualities that make up the central character. This may or may not become a classic, but as a self-contained Spider-Man story, it works very well. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 6, 2015

    It's a shame Regent isn't a strong or better realized villain, because that's the only element preventing this mini-series from rivaling the best of Dan Slott's Spider-man work. The art is terrific Read Full Review

    Word Of The Nerd - Harry Roachford Aug 7, 2015

    This issue is a dark treat in what you would expect to be a sweet story line. Despite the darkness, it still captures the spirit of Spider-Man and delivers a comic that's truly worth the money. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Brandon Griffin Aug 6, 2015

    Renew Your Vows has so far lived up to the expectations placed on it by web-head fanatics. Although it's taken a different route than many expected, it is a welcomed return to many Spider-Man elements that have been missing from some of Dan Slott's more recent Spidey work. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Bruce Banter Aug 12, 2015

    Renew you Vows is far from perfect, but it's a nice distraction form the Doom ruled Marvel universe as it stands now, I'm sure none of this will matter in a few weeks when the All New All different Marvel Universe premiers. But it be nice to see Peter have his family back when the dust settles. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Jamie Rice Aug 6, 2015

    Overall, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: RENEW YOUR VOWS #3 doesn't quite live up to the hype that the first issue promised, but there are still poignant moments that any Spider-Man fan will enjoy. It also feels like time for a new twist to arrive, and if it's as good as the ending to the first issue, then it will definitely be worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Aug 7, 2015

    Buried beneath a clunky story is the fact that this Spider-Man isn't as committed to his values as the "regular" Spider-Man. Slott makes it quite clear throughout the story but doesn't give the reader enough material to evaluate whether or not they prefer a slightly harder-edged webslinger. More noteworthy is the fact that Peter and Mary Jane feel content telling their kindergartner a life-altering secret and seeding lies around the rest of Spider-Man's story. "Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows" #3 is a decent enough inventory story, but not the type of tale I'm likely to go back and re-read any time soon. Its connection to "Secret Wars" is, currently, tenuous at most and the characters just don't have enough personality or vitality to make this storyline exceptionally memorable. Read Full Review
