    Spider-Man 24/7 certainly has its merits so far, not least of which being more slick pencils from Mike McKone. However, issue #592 offers up a far more mundane beginning than I would have expected. I'm hopefully the next issue can do better. Until then, I'm going to busy myself trying to scrub all memory of the final page out of my brain. Read Full Review

    Mike McKone's take on Spider-Man here has the kind of energy and enthusiasm we've seen in the past when artists such as John Romita Sr. and the late Mike Wieringo brought the character to life on the page. The one visual element in the book that didn't quite work for me was the rather ordinary look of JJJ's mayoral office; I'd expected something more opulent and official in appearance. Also disappointing is the cover art. The regular cover, by Joe Quesada, is too dark and intense in tone as compared to the lighter feel found within, and the "Wolverine Art Appreciation" variant cover has absolutely nothing to do with this story or the title character. Of course, I would imagine that's true of all the various variant covers adorning Marvel's titles this month. Read Full Review

    Amazing Spider-Man #592 was a fun read but because of the lack of picking up the developments from the last issue it didn't reach its full potential as I much rather find out what is going on with Harry or what MJ was going to say in the answering machine message (though it is kind of obvious what she was going to say) than seeing Jameson as mayor. Now if you don't excuse me I am going to try and scrub out my eyes in order to get that last page out of my mind. Read Full Review
