    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Feb 27, 2009

    This is a really good issue, with great dialogue, a stellar art job from John Romita, Jr and more subtlety and plot ins and outs than I thought Mark Guggenheim capable of. The story as a whole is suspenseful and nicely done, and the cameos by Iron Fist and Daredevil nicely handled. It's nice to see some of the ongoing plot points starting to wrap up, even though I am unhappy with the revelation that most of the cops featured in the book are corrupt. Overall, it's a very strong issue, with the only weakness being the fact that the weekly frequency makes it really hard to keep up with all the various developments in Peter Parker's life. Amazing Spider-Man #587 earns a very impressive 4.5 out of 5 stars, and I'm looking forward to how this whole thing wraps up this week... Read Full Review

    Romita Jr. just continues to make me wish he would drawevery issue of Spider-man rather than anyone else. But then again, MarvelComics has to put him in all their big event series and they cant clone him.Too bad. Read Full Review

    Even if you havent been following Amazing Spider-Man this issue gives you everything you need to follow its story. It could stand alone. Its nice to see that this day and age when most stories are hard to get into unless you catch the first part of the story arc. Id put this one in the buy category--its fun and entertaining (psstand its only $2.99). Read Full Review

    There's no griping about the artwork, though - John Romita, Jr. and Klaus Janson are turning in terrific work here, and the comic is well worth buying for that alone. Read Full Review

    "Character Assassination" was supposed to be a big deal in the ASM world, but so far it's only succeeded in falling on its face. And the latest installment, a bland, confused installment, unfortunately isn't doing the storyline any favors. Read Full Review
