    Overall, I actually did find the one-shot quite enjoyable, not to mention very entertaining. I would caution fans who pick up this issue more for Spider-Man than for Shang-Chi, as it's the latter who gets more of the attention, and without a doubt the better characterization and personal journey throughout the issue.

    Ultimately, there's nothing truly upsetting about the story or its execution. It's just a shame that, once again, a Shadowland spin-off books has used the event as a generic backdrop rather than an excuse to flesh out the core story. Bar some minor thematic links and the appearance of ninjas, this Spidey/Shang Chi Vs. Mr. Negative story could have come at almost any time. It says a lot about the importance of managing reader expectation that as an issue of "Amazing Spider-Man" it would have been welcomed, but in a story ostensibly related to Shadowland, it can't help but feel like filler.
