    The first time I've picked up Amazing Spider-Man in years.

    I think a lot of people feel this way. But overall the issue was bang-up no matter how that hinted at storyline pans out.

    Because this issue both gave me two major things I wanted along with the hint of another big thing I wanted for the first time in over 10 years ASM is on my pull list.

    Spencer in one issue demonstrated an understanding of Spider-Man, Aunt May, Robbie and Mary Jane and Peter than Slott failed to do in nearly 200 issues.

    p.s. loved the "Of course Doc Ock isn't my biggest enemy" line.

    get rekt Otto Norman is numero uno

    I'll freely admit ahead of time these plot points had me concerned. As you said Spencer, however, addressed both in more than satisfactory fashion.

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THIS! THIS is what I want a Spider-Man comic to be.
    Peter was written so well here, and was, like others have said, a man more than a young man (there's a difference). Plus, I love classic villains, but I'm so glad that we're getting a compelling new villain too. I like Kingpin's plan, the other heroes' involvement, and the supporting cast was amazing.

    The artwork. I cannot gush enough about the artwork. Ryan Ottley was one of my favorite artists from his long run on Invincible, and I was so excited when he was announced as the artist for here. He knocked it out the park! And for Ramos?! He's one of my favorite Spider-Man artists period, so he, as usual, killed it.

    And of course, that moment...AAAAAHHHH!!! I'm so freaking psyched for this to play out. I just hope it's not a bait and switch. I want it to stick around for a while.

    If you are on the fence about this series, or about the character in general, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND picking up this issue.
    When you can do the things I can, but then you don't, and then the bad things happen? They happen because of you. Because I learned an invaluable lesson all those years ago: that with great power, there must also come great responsibility.

    Awesome start. I was uneasy on the art from the previews, but Ottley overall killed it on art. With this, Venom, and Immortal Hulk, Marvel is slowly reigning me back in.

    That was me also, I'm so glad I was wrong

    I was going to completely ignore this series because I didn't like the FCD preview. This is the kinda Parker luck I can deal with.

    Immortal Hulk is criminally underrated! That book is so doggone good, it doesn't make any sense.

    Great start but seeing Ottley's Peter and MJ reminds me that Invincible is over.

    Spencer handled the balance of Peter's private life very well. A lot went bad for him. The academic cheating accusation came out in a very public way. He was fired. Aunt May was disappointed. There were some smaller insults as well (IE- Sajani suing him.)

    When one good big thing happened to him, it served to balance the bad. And it's going to put Mary Jane in an interesting place, when she is the one person Peter can communicate with, who knows what he's going through, and the injustice of it.

    The stinger with the Lizard worked on a few levels.

    I'm a big Lizard fan, so that's just a personal thing.

    He's one the cover of the next issue, so anyone who follows that kind of stuff isn't surprised to see him. However, the location and the specific dynamic (The Lizard's in a position of acceptance, he's going to be interacting with Peter, there is a potential for innocent bystanders to be hurt) are immediately promising.

    It also gives Peter an opportunity to recover from his academic losses. He's been knocked down a peg, but not out. He's back to being a grad student, which is at this point, his ideal academic level.
    Sincerely,
    Thomas Mets

    Regarding Lizard, I'm wondering if they're gonna pick up that plot thread from the end of Clone Conspiracy, where his wife and son are now also mindless lizards.

    Thank you for that, I had no idea that was even a character, but after looking him up, that is a really obscure character and I wonder exactly how he will play into Spider-Man's life. And I guess they've retconned into Mysterio always knowing his identity since Spider-Men, but he's kept it a secret for reasons.

    Spencer has taken the first steps to surpassing Slott if what he is showing us here holds. Still i will be cautious as i don't want to get my hopes up only for them to be crushed once more.
