    An unspectacularconclusionto a solid arc. However, everything post Character Assassination has been enjoyable and worth the time and money. Also, don't forget that Joe Kelley kicks off a new arc next week. These are good days to be an ASM fan. Let's just hope the editors don't get punchdrunk and bring the focus back to Harry Osborn and crew. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 20, 2009

    "Spider-Man 24/7" proved to be far more underwhelming than I would have expected. But my enthusiasm for "American Son" and issues beyond hasn't diminished, so I'd say the series as a whole is still riding a pretty nice wave at the moment. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis May 22, 2009

    I had to check the credits a few time. Kitson and McKones work is starting to look like Phil Jimenez. Im not complaining here. Kitson and McKone have been doing some great work in the past and Ive always enjoyed the rich textured pages filled with details and realistic renderings. But here, they are beginning to surpass their already excellent work. Morales' inks are thick enough to solidify Kitsons lines which are usually very thin. I like that. Hes also streamlining the characters visual to make them more recognizable as Spider-man characters. J. Jonas Jameson looks like himself. Aunt May looks like herself. The only character the team needs more work on is Mckone's Norman Osborn. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck May 26, 2009

    But is change in the wind for Spidey? It's interesting to note that the newspaper strip changed to match the "new" Spidey (namely, it moved to an earlier time period and put Peter Parker back in college, dating Mary Jane. But this Sunday, the strip reverted back to the "present," and has Peter once again married. According to the strip, the return was made in response to "hundreds of letters." Is it a preview of what's coming in the comic book? Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace May 19, 2009

    As with the previous issue, I find myself in that strange position of saying that this is a fine example of a Spider-Man comic without really being able to rave about it. The writing and artwork are both of an above-average standard, but the core elements of the plot aren't quite strong enough to make this a particularly outstanding story. Maybe the next "tentpole" Spidey storyline will push the book into 4-bullet territory. Read Full Review
