    AIPT - David Brooke Mar 15, 2021

    The self-pitying but never quitting Spider-Man is on full display in King in Black: Spider-Man and it's a great depiction of the character. The creators give you everything you could ask for in a quick, action-focused outing, right down to a science-minded Peter figuring things out. Plus, if you weren't down for the upcoming Reptil series this might make you a believer. Read Full Review

    Jed MacKay seems right at home writing Spidey and it's nice to read a different writer's vision/take on Spidey. I'd certainly like to see him writing him again in the future. A mini or satellite book perhaps Marvel?? Read Full Review

    Worth a read even if you're out of the loop on the much bigger story in the background. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Nick Devonald Mar 17, 2021

    A fun story that is reminiscent of Spider-Man’s Friendly Neighbourhood origin stories, it’s only let down by the fact that the story doesn’t tie in very well with the King in Black event. Someone forgot that Parker currently has his hands full dealing with Knull and isn’t just swinging around helping out innocent bystanders. An entertaining story that feels more like it’s designed to introduce readers to Reptil before his solo event later on in the year. The art looks great throughout the comic, and both art teams really bring their A-Game. Read Full Review
