The enigmatic Ezekiel returns to Peter's life! But is he the same man who stood by Spider-Man's side in his hour of need, or will he prove to be something much deadlier?

    The era of JMS and JR Jr comes to an end - for now - and, along with Bendis and Maleev's stellar tenure on Daredevil, it's a run which I'm proud to have in my collection. I'm not convinced that the quality of this team's work over the past few years can be matched by Mike Deodato Jr (starting next issue) - especially with the rumoured plot developments recently leaked to the comics community - but I'm willing to be convinced.

    While Ezekiels revelation is somewhat contrived, this issue marks the conclusion of one of the longest planned arcs in the books history. Its not perfect, but it is good enough and a good act for John Romita Jr. to bow out on. Good-bye JRJR, youll be missed! Read Full Review

    So, a disappointment then. Its a well-written and beautifully drawn comic, but as the final chapter of an epic story, its very much an ineffectual sigh. Read Full Review

    John Romita Jr.s final issue on this title and I have to say his presence on the Spider-Man book's is going to be much missed, as along with Mark Bagley he really stabilized the books on the art front. It also didn't hurt that he's a fantastic action artist as while there's not much action in this final issue, there are a couple solid examples, as the battle between Ezekiel and Peter has a wonderful sense of urgency to it. as does the scene where Peter is straining against his bonds as the giant spider creature closes in. The giant spider creature is also a wonderfully creepy presence. Read Full Review

    John Romita Jr.'s art has been a massive asset to Amazing Spider-Man. He doesn't leave on his best work. Again, his Morlun battles were far more impressive not to mention action-packed. These pages just feel dry and tired. Pity. Read Full Review
