    Mcguiness offers such classic and characteristic art that gives Spider-man superhuman yet realistic flexibility. The facial expressions are mesmerizing.

    Amazing Spider-Man #29 reminds us how uplifting and fulfilling partnership can be and that memories should be celebrated instead of mourned.

    The Story: Wells crafts an entertaining story for both Peter and Norman in this issue. There are some great character moments throughout with Otto struggling to remember what was taken from him and a great sense of tension as Peter has to decide whether or not to embrace Otto’s tech and Norman discovers what Octavius has planned for him. The amount of tension in the book makes me interested in seeing what happens next.

    The Art: McGuiness delivers beautifully detailed and action packed art that has a fluid energy to it. I love the visual style and look forward to seeing how the action ramps up in the next issue.

    Ed McGuinness brings an undeniable energy to the pages of Amazing Spider-Man that makes each new turn in Spidey’s story a thrill to witness. The current scenario is already a powder keg as Peter is surrounded by three of his most dedicated nemeses, albeit with two of them having since reformed. Osborn, Jameson, and even Octavius are all portrayed with an abundance of sympathy as the first two struggle to maintain their new lives while the third mourns what he doesn’t even know he has lost. That abundance of pathos makes the mad scientist machinations of Doctor Octopus all the more exciting as even the most straightforward evil plan will have terribly personal consequences. Ock’s new arms make each appearance an impressive splash as their attitudes and aptitudes run rampant in backgrounds as the series’ villainous titans duke it out. The Amazing Spider-Man #29 walks the line between big, bouncing action and tragic character twists with ease, delivering readers one of the most fun Spidey issues of the year so far.

    This series really needs to continue to focus on these types of stories. It’s strong story telling by the entire team, and it makes me glad to continue to pick up this book.

    With Ed McGuinness and Marcio Manyz delivering their strongest work thus far on the series, The Amazing Spider-Man #29 is an undeniably fun issue that plants some interesting and potentially exciting seeds for the title.

    Ultimately, Amazing Spider-Man #29 is a silly comic that uses art to bring entertainment value. The story is rather simplistic. There isn’t any deep psychological character work, but simply an evil villain doing evil things. It’s very much a comic of another time, which should satisfy many, and you can’t go wrong with how dynamic and cool this art looks.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    Amazing Spider-Man is a step in the right direction for Spidey with a few twists, stakes (for Norman Osborn), and potential. Wells can’t help injecting an unnecessarily jokey tone that diminishes the dramatic atmosphere, but the plot is starting to take shape into something possibly worth reading.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Wells is mixing comedy and serious drama in a way that makes it kind of difficult to interface with the center of the story. A few pages before the end of the issue, it’s just…silly. It all kind of falls apart by the end, but there ARE some really good moments splattered throughout the issue that almost reach a kind of brilliance with some very witty dialogue by Wells.
