    Spider-Man #8 is an intriguing start that works well thanks to the excellent writing of Peter Parker, who feels like his classic self here. Throw in the mystery of Spider-Boy, Spider-Man's new enhanced power, and a return of a classic villain, and you have a recipe for another iconic Spider-Man story from Dan Slott and Mark Bagley.

    Spider-Man #8may have well been the true start to this secondary Spidey title. It's full of classical Marvel heart and fun that keeps a human heart directly at its center. Its restraint in penning a simple story make it such a quality comic, characters and themes matter more than shock and nostalgia. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez May 7, 2023

    Spider-Man #8 gets the series back to basics, with a Spider-Man getting back to the business of saving the day until he feels his efforts aren't enough. Peter's experiment has interesting story implications, and the overall technical execution (writing and art) is an improvement, but Slott's characterization of Spidey feels outdated, and Spider-Boy's random appearances have outworn their welcome.

    I didn't hate this issue, but it's so mired in cliched concepts and half- baked execution that it's hard to win me over. The art is still such a return to form for a Spidey legend though Read Full Review
