It's a good old fashioned He Said/He Said/He Said when Spidey, Vin Gonzales and SWING SHIFT Heavy OVERDRIVE find themselves in a car chase across the Big Apple!

    Amazing #564 isn't the greatest comic I've ever read, nor is it the most original. But it tells a good enough story and employs a fair gimmick to boost it above a simple rehash of an old concept.

    Looking back, this review sounds a bit negative, but I did not intend it to sound that way. There is certainly nothing majorly wrong with this issue, but it feels like an average read to me. Even Spidey's humor, which is funny, isn't anything that I'll be remembering for a long time. So anyone who regularly reads Spider-Man will probably get this and get some run of the mill entertainment. But to those who choose not to pick this up, you won't be missing out on anything.
