    What could’ve been a really gross issue, turns into a charming, feel-good story in this tale of a MAY/December (WINK!) romance.

    What could have been just a silly lark of a story actually had some solid depth. This is a way better issue than the concept would have you think!

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Amazing Spider-Man #80.BEY delivers a story that manages to be fun and integral to the main series. The story pulls through with a tale starring Aunt May and Doctor Octopus working together. The dynamic between May and Doc Ock is both fun and enjoyably sappy, with the former as the lead. It’s definitely a better tie-in than the one with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing. This comic is a definite recommend to anyone invested in the Spider-Man Beyond storyline.

    The Amazing Spider-Man #80.BEY works well as possibly the best Doc Ock and Aunt May adventure ever. Certainly, these two haven’t had a lot of opportunities to affect Spider-Man’s story, but Ziglar and the art team do well to capture the unique personalities of these two characters and how they jive with each other.

    But Why Tho?

    Amazing Spider-Man #80 BEY places Peter Parker’s fate in the hands of his Aunt May and Doctor Octopus, resulting in a surprisingly engaging adventure. The ending not only resolves one of the Beyond Saga’s subplots, but it sets up another one by igniting a battle between Doctor Octopus and the Beyond Corporation. I love that these one-shots continue to flesh out the Beyond Saga, and I look forward to the next one.
