Another great issue. This and Batman 89 have been the best projects DC's put out in quite some time. However, this series manages to capture the vibe of the original movies more efficiently than the former.

This story just keeps getting better. Although I won't make a final judgement until the end of this, so far I agree with Asger: I'm liking this story more than the ones told in the Burton films!

This was an amazing series. The journey was the best and I really enjoyed the ride, the combination of King + Fornes was a match made in heaven. Thanks for that.

Issue #12 was the most predictable of all 12 issues. Hard job following the last two. The path was established, it was just a matter of seeing it unfolding. I think there are some very interesting artist decisions, that the art more

Ben is back. That's all that I need. I like this idea of Pete "losing" the Spider-Man mantle due to the most idiotic, simple and capitalist concept possible. Marketing. I'm also into Ben's, "I am the lesser of two evils and it was my duty to take this," mindset. I will always love Ben Reilly and I love even more seeing two Spidey's teaming up and cracking jokes.

"Spider-Man is evolving, Pete is growing and Ben is back. I could not be happier." You and me both. I'm ready for an evolution in the character. No more continous cycles of going back to the status-quo. If others say that Peter's the best of all the heroes, then it's about time they start showing it.

A solid start for this new ‘era’ of Amazing Spider-Man! In short, this first issue is fully used to introduce the pieces that will establish the status quo going forward. Not much happens, but that’s ok. After so many plot threads going on at once and what felt like a continuous unorganized setting, it felt great to enjoy a simple Spider-Man comic. A story that went from A to B and lays the more

this is a fine issue, which means compared to the previous 74 (plus side issues and annuals) from Nick Spencer, it's pretty damn good. It's a great introduction into this era of Spider-Man, bringing back the fun quippy dialogue, the simplicity of villains, and re-introducing Ben Reilly. It brings you up to speed on what Ben has been up to and how Peter is feeling after the Spencer drag that he's more

Not bad. Given the hype, you were probably suspecting this was going to spin straight out of Spencer’s run but it really didn’t. How Pete gets his ass kicked and gives way to Ben taking back over is all in this issue… and it’s not bad.

It was great, Wells and the Beyond board respected what Spencer did, all the characters were well written and the idea is great. Gleason's artwork is perfection, he is growing to be my favorite Spider-Man artist of all time.
