    Spider-Man continues to be a heartfelt journey into the idea of legacy and the failings of adulthood. If you've stayed away from this one, now's the time to dive in and see what all the commotion is about! Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Dec 21, 2019

    This much-ballyhooed Spider-Man comic continues to be a huge let down. The creative team apparently can't even go three issues before pushing their new characters into the background so they can play with Tony Stark. Read Full Review

    This Spider-Man story continues to be a frustrating blend of cliches and poor storytelling. Read Full Review

    How much Abrams do we have to suffer this week? This was the worst issue in the series and one of the worst comics all year. An incoherent mess that's full of exposition, and a whole lot of "why should I care" things. Don't make my mistake by buying this book!

    I think this book is pretty good. Not sure why it gets all the hate. I like the art too. Really enjoying this series and can't wait to see how it ends

    This is still a very very cliched story, I was still entertained by this issue and this series shows some promise for the final 2 issues. Spider Man 3 does a ton of things wrong, but also a ton of things right. Aunt May continues to be the absolute MVP of the series and the scene where Cadaverous brutally stabs Peter in front of his son was haunting. Tony Stark of the future was an absolute delight, and he was one of the most entertaining parts of this issue. The asian girl is extremely cliched and honestly completely unnecessary to the story. Cadaverous finally gets an origin and its not cliched and quite interesting, to my surprise. These next 2 issues look fun

    One star higher only because of Stark

    If not for the beautiful art and somewhat decent writing, this would be rated much much lower, as it feels that I've read this exact same story many many times.

    The writing is obviously a mixed bag of good ideas implemented in a clunky and disjointed way. Maybe two writers with neither having written any comics is not a good idea....hope they make their ideas come together better. Again the whole Cadaverous villain is a complete waste of time and the story can function with anybody else at this point. Pichelli is actually doing some good work but feels wasted right now.

    I wonder if this story would get better or worse if they just went all in and made the bad guy Peter's dad.

    This seems to be somewhat based on the cancelled ASM 3 movie.

    It shows how good this is...

    Prelude:
    While Abrams' Spider-Man improved last issue, a 3.5 is still a 3.5. Still, let's see if this team can continue this trend.

    The Good:
    Pichelli's art is good.

    The Bad:
    It's still very cliched.

    Dialogue is really rough too. Teenage angst included.

    Conclusion:
    It's a cliche story with rough dialogue. The only saving grace here is the art really. The rest is mediocre or just bad.

    Oh my fucking god, first they fuck with my favorite, Spider-Man, now they're fucking with Iron Man. There's so much wrong here. Why are they ripping off the Ultimate comics/the Amazing Spider-Man films? Why would you do that? And the dialogue here is atrocious. Tony's like fucking Yoda in Empire, it's so bad. And ugh, they steal lines from the movies because I guess they think that's a good way to punch up their script. I don't know who is actually writing this, J.J. or his son, but either way, they are simply regurgitating the ideas of other people in an inferior way. Yes, this is worse than the Amazing Spider-Man films. Fuck me, seriously. Every time I read this horseshit comic, I get depressed. It's like seeing the characters and the wor more
