    The best issues of ASM lately have been the ones with the highest fun factor. Issue #590 has fun in droves, but it unfortunately carries some of the more annoying qualities of the Brand New Day approach along with that fun. I really hope this is the arc that finally answers some of those burning questions. Not so much because I crave the answers, but because I'm sick and tired of being teased with them. The series has too much to offer at this point to dwell in the past any longer. Read Full Review

    Another good issue of Amazing Spider-Man that provides an interesting new chapter in a long-standing relationship. Its just too bad that New Avengers had to make it less effective. Read Full Review

    If there's any problem with the issue, it's in the structure, which ends on not one, but two cliffhangers "- both of which are immediately predictable. Now, in fairness, it's difficult to end every issue on something that'll excite jaded, grown-up fans, but it's a brave writer indeed who ends on two cliffhangers that anyone over the age of 12 could predict the resolution for. There's the chance Slott will throw a curveball and bring something unexpected to the next issue, but more likely he's just going to pick up the story seamlessly, so that it reads fine without a break when it gets collected. That, at least, is forgivable, and thankfully the issue isn't too marred overall. Read Full Review
