Review:

"Roger Stern's return ... is the most welcome and easily the best of the bunch. The [story] sees Peter return to the warehouse where he caught his Uncle Ben's killer back in his debut issue and features references to moments from Stern's run on Amazing to other classic Spidey tropes like shifting huge amounts of rubble and struggling underwater. Those may sound like minor details, but they speak volumes about Stern's subtlety in acknowledging both some of the most important moments in the character's history alongside less important factors from midway through the run." -- Paul X. McNamee

"The best part of Stern's writing was the fact he gave this story a timeless feel. Although built off [stories that] Stern wrote in the 80s, he [has] made the transition to modern writing very well." -- Shaun Martineau

"This special anniversary [issue] unites writer Roger Stern with artist Roberto De La Torre for a tale set ... firmly in present spider-continuity. The issue sees Peter and Norah Winters doing a little investigative reporting and chancing across a location all too familiar for one of them. As a stand-alone story and a celebration of 50 years of Spider-Man, it works brilliantly." -- James Hunt

"Roger Stern gets these anniversary issues off to a great start here, with a quiet, balanced story that does indeed capture and celebrate a key element of Spider-Man." --  Adam Rivett

"Roger Stern and Tom DeFalco return ... and prove that they still have it." -- Kris Shaw

"A quietly captivating Spider-Man tale, wonderfully told by veteran scribe Roger Stern and beautifully illustrated by Roberto De La Torre and Matt Hollingsworth. Stern [is] one of very few old-school writers who've managed to modernize their storytelling with the times without losing the voice that made them a success in the first place. He writes the perfect Peter Parker; a character who never quite manages to find that perfect balance between confidence and self-doubt ..." -- Simon McDonald
