    Giuseppe Camuncoli further cements his status as the best and most suited of the Superior artists. He captures the sinister vibe of this multiverse-spanning adventure, while giving every panel a sense of energy and vitality. These two issues rival any of his previous work on the Spider-man franchise. Miguel Sepulveda's work on the backup feature is more subdued, but also suited to that story's more downbeat tone.

    Superior Spider-Talk - Tony Goodwyn Sep 19, 2014

    Edge of Spider-Verse #32 delivers high-stakes action and a taste of what "Spider-Verse" is going to be like, appropriately setting the stage for it. Throw in a story expanding on Karn and Morlun's family, and great artwork by Camuncoli and M.A. Sepulveda, and you've got a winner of an issue. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Josh McCullough Sep 22, 2014

    While Camuncolis art didnt really impress me much during the Amazing series, often feeling stiff and awkward, it is the perfect visual match for Superior Spider-Man. Camuncolis Spider-Man certainly has an edge to him, he looks unfriendly and even physically imposing with fits Ottos harsher Spider-Man perfectly. The way in which is body language and look is framed makes him feel different to Peter and is something I very much appreciate. When several Spider-Men are sharing page time Camuncoli manages to keep the action clean and clear, giving each Spider-Man their own look which makes them feel like their own character rather than cannon fodder.

    AiPT! - David Brooke Sep 17, 2014

    This is another good issue that delivers in all the ways you'd hope. As far as events go the progression is phenomenal and everyone should be able to find something to enjoy. That is, if you've been following along. New readers may want to read the back issues for this one! Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Corey 'Undeadpool' Schroeder Sep 17, 2014

    This is one of the most interesting Spider-Man books on the shelf right now. Im absolutely thrilled to see the return or more accurately follow-up, of one of my favorite villains we havent heard a peep from in almost ten years. Its also a great juxtaposition seeing Superior Spidey on the shelf at the same time as Amazing and seeing the massive differences between the two. Read Full Review

    It's a simple concept, but simplicity sometimes is the formula to success - put a bunch of Spider-Men in a room together, and watch them beat the holy heck out of a bad guy. Or as the ol' Parker luck might have it, have their collective web-slinging cans handed to them. That's fine - Spider-Man's unique abilities and fighting style makes him an intrinsically compelling character when it comes to action, and Gage and Camuncoli don't let up with this issue. Clearly more Spider-Men can equal more fun. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Jeremy Radick Sep 18, 2014

    All in all, this issue and the one before it really only have to build anticipation for the event, which it does. But it does so skillfully by giving us not just plot but character development. This willmakeus care about, and identify with, both heroes and villains far more once Spider-Verse does kick off. So, while it doesn't re-invent the wheel, it does its job and then some.

    While not as great as the initial ending, Superior Spider-Man #33 is a good issue that sets the tone well for Spider-Verse Read Full Review

    "Spider-Verse" has proven to be a lot of fun so far, and this issue is no different. Eight different Spider-people team-up against a common foe (spider-energy vampires?) and Christos Gage proves once again why Otto Octavius is such a great Spider-Man. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Sep 22, 2014

    "Superior Spider-Man" #33 is the kind of popcorn comic that's best consumed for what it is, rather than criticized for what it isn't. There's enough characterization and tension to make readers not really care that these normally earthbound and friendly (and not-so-friendly) neighborhood Spider-Men really don't belong swinging around through the multiverse.
