The return of Doctor Octopus, Daredevil, and one of the most important people in Peter Parker’s life! Doc’s back in town, but it’s only a prelude to darker days ahead as Spidey unknowingly prepares for a gauntlet he can’t even see coming.

    Things should be interesting in the world of Spider-Man in the coming months. Between the return of MJ and the revival of the Clone Saga, I'm very interested in reading what happens next. Check it out people. Good stuff! Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Rob G. Jul 22, 2009

    I came into this with high expectations and they were all surpassed.If you're looking to get back into Spidey after the Brand New Day debacle, get in now. Creatively, everything seems right in the new ASM continuity and I'm looking forward to see what the “brain trust” is going to do with all this momentum. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Jul 22, 2009

    But like I said, Amazing Spider-Man #600 mostly rises above criticism thanks to its bulk of enjoyable material. Even at $4.99, it's a real bargain for any Spider-Man fan, and I'd call it the strongest of Marvel's recent over-sized #600 issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 21, 2009

    This is not a comic to be taken lightly, but it is a comic that might be lightly taken by any fan of Spider-Man, new or veteran. If you find yourself with a spare fin burning a hole in your pocket this Wednesday, keep in mind that there are zero calories ingested in the act of reading a comic. This comic might just give you a fuzzy feeling inside too, as it reminds you that even though things may not always look up for Peter Parker, there are certainly times it is well worth it to look Peter Parker up.

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Jul 21, 2009

    This extra-large issue might also carry an extra-large price tag, but it's still great value for money. Slott and Romita's story alone is 61 pages, and that's almost three issues worth of content for the price of less than two. If you buy this issue, you're essentially getting an entire three-issue Amazing Spider-Man arc by two A-list creators -- along with a whole host of backup strips, all of which are brand-new (no reprints here) -- for less than five dollars, and that's not a bad deal at all.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Jul 26, 2009

    While this issue is a mixed bag (again, which is par for the course with many anthology comics), its definitely worth the price of admission for the strong bits alone. Im guessing one of its goals, however, was to hook more new readers on the title. While I enjoyed it, it didnt make me want to add Amazing Spidey to my pull list. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Jul 24, 2009

    If you're looking for a complete story in one issue or were looking to give SpiderMan or the Brand New Day era a look, this is a perfect jumping on point and an issue that, while not perfect, is still a fun ride. Read Full Review
