    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt May 14, 2012

    With Zeb Wells having departed as writer, there is a slight shift in the tone and humor of the book, but it's nothing so drastic that previous readers might be upset. With a strong emphasis on action, comedy and fun, it's everything the first five issues were (though I admit skipping last issue's "Omega Effect" crossover) and retains its status as one of the most enjoyable Marvel books currently being published. In a line full of crossovers and multi-part epics, "Avenging Spider-Man" is an oasis of understated brilliance and gives you exactly what you want to read when you pick up a book with Spider-Man and She-Hulk on the cover.

    She-Hulk has been far underused in the Marvel Universe of late and any time she's game to show for another issue here I'll be sure to pick it up. Must-read. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 16, 2012

    Avenging Spider-Man #7 is one of the must have issues of the year. Kathryn and Stuart Immonen combined their talents to deliver what will not only be a contender for Issue of the Year but is currently the comic to beat for that award. Avenging Spider-Man #7 is one of those comics that no summary will do it justice in how much fun the story is. If you are a Marvel fan pick this Spider-Man/She-Hulk team-up issue up the next time you are in your local comic book shop. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson May 11, 2012

    Price is, unfortunately, a factor that must be considered in a review, especially when you're rating on a scale of Pass/Browse/Buy. Normally, I would be opposed to shelling out $3.99 for a single-story one-shot, and even more opposed to paying that same price for a comic with only twenty story pages, but beyond the actual quality of the book, “Avenging Spider-Man” #7 has one other saving grace: the free digital copy download code. Twenty cents a page is still quite a steep price, but if you are looking for straight-up fun superheroics without the baggage of continuity, this book is worth every penny. Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey May 9, 2012

    If you have been enjoying Avenging Spider-Man so far, this issue will probably hit all the right notes. It doesn't quite reach the heights of previous issues, but it's still a fun read and sharp looking book. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Clark Bullock May 17, 2012

    When I first started reading this book, I really thought it was going places. However, at this point I am thinking otherwise. I believe that the staff changes are really taking a toll on this series. There is no type of plot progression or development. The story is really moving on, issue-to-issue. A newplot every time andthe problem isresolved by the end of the issue. I hope that it doesn't continue with this downward trend, because if it does, I will gladly stop reading it. The art is mediocre at best. Not good or bad, just okay. The next issue is going to be featuring Doctor Strange, who is one of my favorite comic book characters. I'm really hoping they don't screw that up either. I will be giving this issue a 7/10. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - warriorfist May 13, 2012

    Featuring a disappointing script with fantastic art being its saving grace, Avenging Spider-Man #7 doesn't feature highly on my recommendation for this week's releases. Even if you happen to be a fan of She-Hulk, I can't say that there is a faithful interpretation of her here that's going to be satisfactory enough for that segment. It's not a really bad book, it's just a thoroughly average book (with great art, of course!). Read Full Review
