    But Why Tho?

    Amazing Spider-Man #76 expertly balances action with emotion, as Ben Reilly and Peter Parker wrestle with mental and emotional challenges. With the Beyond era fully set up, I look forward to what the creative team of Kelly Thompson and Sara Pichelli bring to the table in two weeks.

    It’s very hard to convince readers that a mainline superhero might die, and yet the creative team has done it here. You’re going to be on the edge of your seat not knowing if Peter Parker may die while also wrapping your head around the idea of Ben Reilly earning the right to be Spider-Man at such a difficult transition. Amazing Spider-Man #76 is a tense issue that is shocking because of how much the comic makes you feel.

    Despite containing two of my most hated aspects of Spider-Man, this book was a fantastic read, for the most part. The key for the books success will be how different Ben is to Peter and will the villains know the difference. Next up is Kelly Thompson who has been on fire on Captain Marvel. Thompson excels at the dialogue between characters, so it will interesting to see that style, even if it isn’t Peter Parker.

    The Story: Wells crafts a fun and entertaining story in this issue. The contrast between Peter and Ben’s stories continues to be entertaining and engaging in how they contrast with each other. I like that Wells is still keeping aspects of the story hidden and allowing the characters to evolve. It will be interesting to see how Ben’s new life will affect the people in Peter’s and even more interesting to see what happens to Peter in the wake of the issue’s cliffhanger ending.

    The Art: Patrick Gleason delivers some thrilling visuals throughout the issue. There is great action as well as great character moments between Peter and the people in his life. I liked the last few images a lot and they had an interesting 90’s aesthetic.

    Graphic Policy

    I’m not the biggest Spider-Man fan. Amazing Spider-Man #76 ups the soapy drama of the series while delivering something that feels new and different. For this casual fan, it’s an entertaining read. Most importantly, it has me wanting to see what’s next and come back for more.
