    Kabooooom - Roy Buckingham May 8, 2019

    Not only do we get to re-explore this time of Peter Parker's life when alien technology gave him a boost (at a price), but we get to dive deeper into the psychology of Mysterio and why he does what he does. This is what I love the most so far about this title. A perfect blend of action, the snarky humor we love from Spidey and some unexpected pathos from the main villain. Highly recommended!

    Comic Watch - Matt Meyer May 10, 2019

    Peter David is writing a rip-roaring Spider-Man yarn with more than little bit of creeping horror thanks to the symbiote's presence, balanced by superb character work for often-two-dimensional villain Mysterio. It's an outstanding comic that is worth every penny. Read Full Review
