    While the overall story going on here is breaking my heart, I love this book and everything that Tom Taylor is doing with it. Sure, its the street level Spider-Man book, but its also the Spidey book with character and emotion and thats what Ive come to expect from Taylor. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Ethan Maddux Apr 11, 2019

    Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #5 is only let down by sky-high expectations, which isn't such a bad thing considering it set that bar itself. Taken as a single issue, this is both a heartwarming and heart-wrenching story that digs deep into who Peter Parker is. It's obvious Tom Taylor loves Spider-Man for the right reasons, because this book feels exactly right. Plus, in an era where Spider-Man artists are at the top of their game, Yildiray Cinar more than holds his own and delivers a beautiful book. Read Full Review

    Nothing truly substantial happens in FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #5, making it a skippable purchase. However, despite the lack of consequences, or new information, it's still an enjoyable enough read. Read Full Review

    The comic continues to feel pleasantly different than Amazing Spider-Man, and Taylor has earned enough goodwill that readers should at least be willing to see where Aunt May's latest health scare will take us. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Apr 11, 2019

    Yildiray Cinar's linework has a moodier vibe to it than the sleekness of the previous issues by Juann Cabal, so it's curious as to why Taylor's script doesn't opt to wring out as much emotional potential as possible from the issue's initial premise. Even with the understanding this isn't the story's end, the book almost seems scared with dealing with what it's set up. Read Full Review
