    Many of this series will go away after Secret Wars and the original heroes will return, at least in part, but this is one series that seems like it has enough of a heart to deserve more of a look. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Chris Massari Aug 24, 2015

    As far as the artwork, it's not clear who did the majority of it, since Adam Kubert and Scott Hanna are both listed as artist, but no indication is made to who did what, as far as pencils or inks. Outside of whom to give credit to what to, the art is very well done in Renew Your Vows #4, without any real noticeable complaints. There's a nice mix of more detailed panels, with ones more abstract in design, switching back through the entirety of the issue. Sometimes certain scenes or expressions are rendered in great detail to convey the emotion needed, while other time's it lacks the same focus. So to whoever did this comics' artwork, it was pretty solid across the board. Read Full Review

    Each issue has improved on the last, and this series concludes with issue 5. There is a lot that has to happen in this final issue, and I hope its a satisfying conclusion to a fun series. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Aug 19, 2015

    The Amazing Spider-Man Renew Your Vows has been very good so far. This issue has set up the conclusion nicely and we'll get to see who makes it out alive. Dan Slott has done a good job with this series and should earn a little more respect from those who dislike his work. The art has been consistent and it's paired with an awesome colorist. Hopefully the conclusion will be as exciting as the events that led us there. Read Full Review

    Good Kind Of Geek - Nikki Yuan Aug 20, 2015

    Overall, this is not as great an issue as the previous one. We get an idea what Regent is up to, but that's not enough to make him a compelling villain yet. Annie is turning out to be a great character, and I can't wait to see how the story is going to turn out in the final issue next month. Read Full Review

    It's no big surprise that the buildup has been leading up to the Parker family swinging back into action. "Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows" #4 finally pulls the trigger on it in a nicely structured and satisfying lead-in to next issue and presumed final showdown. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Aug 19, 2015

    The concept is strong, the Secret Wars tie-in is enough to pique interest but not overwhelm the book, and the return to this family dynamic for Peter and MJ is really refreshing. Slott lets us all take a breath here while also giving Annie May Parker a chance to show us what she's made of. The art team's work as whole may not be the best that it's been but they have an issue to pick up the slack. Overall, this is a well-balanced issue that readers who have been sticking with the series will enjoy. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 19, 2015

    This new issue is fairly disappointing given the quality of the previous chapters of Renew Your Vows. It fails to keep the book's momentum going, and the visual quality is a noticeable step down. On the other hand, the renewed focus on young May is welcome, and there's little reason to expect the quality won't pick up when the finale hits. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Jamie Rice Aug 19, 2015

    Spider-Man is back and while this issue may do a better job then the previous one it doesn't quite reach the high highes of the first. However, the art is spot on, and Annie Parker's moment in the spotlight is totally worth seeing! Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Aug 20, 2015

    The best thing about this issue still remains its handling of the Parker family, and their devotion to each other. I still prefer an unmarried Spider-Man, but it's nice to see Peter and MJ acting as a team one last time. The way things are set up, I'm hopeful we'll get a solid and satisfying conclusion to what has been a fun series so far, even if this issue was a bit of a stumble. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Mark Ginocchio Aug 19, 2015

    The Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #4 moves away from what was working so well in the first few issues of the series. Rather than delivering a compelling family drama, the creators shift directions suddenly and produce an exposition-heavy story with a weak protagonist. Still, Slott and Kubert have painted a consistent and compelling overarching narrative and setting that should continue to thrill readers. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Aug 19, 2015

    This is a stereotypical penultimate issue that falls flat, drags on and holds back so the climax will be all the better. If you're dying to see Peter's daughter kick butt you might love it, but it's a skippable issue for most. Read Full Review
