The villain-filled Bar With No Name is no joke - especially with a barroom brawl and Spider-Man is caught in the middle! Throw in The Enforcers, The Bookie, and a climax at Coney Island, and you've got a recipe for the craziest Spider-Man story yet.

    Mike McKone's art is definitely the highlight of this book. His compositions are tight, clean, and just beautiful. He brings a lot of energy to Bob Gale's script and allows the reader to skip through all the unneeded dialogue (not that I condone doing this) while preserving the story. As I said, this is a good issue for Bob Gale. Hopefully, he'll continue to improve, because he's not out of the woods yet. Read Full Review

    Mike McKone's art is pretty much the only thing that saves this issue from being a total bomb. He draws a particularly nice Spider-Man and most of his panels have a nice pop. But it's not enough to completely save this throwaway issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Jun 24, 2008

    Amazing Spider-Man #563 was another unimpressive read. This was a thin and generic story. I would only recommend Amazing Spider-Man to people who love the retro late1960's/early 1970's style of storytelling and dialogue. If you enjoy the Marvel Adventures titles then you might want to give Amazing Spider-Man a try. This title is certainly designed for readers who are tired of the more adult comic books that offer plenty of darker stories, cursing and graphic violence. You will certainly find none of that in Amazing Spider-Man. Read Full Review
