Peter Parker is the biggest Hyperion fan in the world, and he also just happens to be chummy with his favorite hero thanks to a photography gig at the Daily Bugle! SURELY, nothing can go wrong, with his camera (and him) in the heart of the action... Right?

    Bernardin delivers an unexpected impactful issue that will really hit home. This issue of THE AMAZING SHUTTERBUG isnt what youd expect but it can be read as a standalone What if issue without any prior knowledge to HEROES REBORN. I highly recommend reading this one-shot even if youre not interested in HEROES REBORN. Its a powerful, thought-provoking story all on its own. Pick this up, let me know what you think, and God Bless! Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings May 12, 2021

    Heroes Reborn: Peter Parker, The Amazing Shutterbug #1 breaks Spider-Man down to his fundamentals, showing that even without powers Peter Parker would still be a good person. I highly recommend reading this and Heroes Reborn #2 back to back, as this issue provides a great deal of context for the latter. Also if you're a Spider-Man fan this comic is definitely worth the read. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 12, 2021

    Though I think it spends a little too long in high school, overall I had a blast with Shutterbug. This is a very enjoyable one-shot that uses the alternate universe premise of Heroes Reborn to do great what-if work on Peter Parker. With strong, simple art and insightful words, it capably illustrates the heroic streak in the character that will always shine through, spider-bite or no spider-bite. Read Full Review

    Even if you don't read the overall "Heroes Reborn" event, this issue still has something special that deserves a closer look. Read Full Review

    As One-Shot's go, I wasn't blown away by this. It was a good take on a Peter Parker standalone story. But die-hard Spiderman fans may be left disappointed. If you are looking for an action packed story, this isn't it I'm afraid. It's more so a look at Peter Parker as a person and whether he would still achieve greatness without powers. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Tim Chuma May 14, 2021

    Maybe this one is more for big fans of Spider Man who want to see something different with this character that has not really been done before. Everyone else maybe pass over this one if you want to see more action. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally May 12, 2021

    Both De Latorre and Lim do great visual work with the story, but there isn't enough story worth exploring so the art never gets the opportunity to engage the reader. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - M.R. Jafri May 12, 2021

    It would have been more interesting to see Peter go through some more extreme personality changes as a result of losing Aunt May and being continually bullied and looked down on. Instead we see a fairly well adjusted hero emerge in spite of the totally new circumstances. The characters and art all work as we'd expect without any genuine surprises beyond Peter's final transformation. Read Full Review
