    Surprisingly, given the title of the story, there's relatively little attention paid to Mary Jane Watson's return to New York. However, the rest of the story is compelling enough that this matters very little: indeed, I could happily do without this subplot altogether, which is the only part of the book that still carries the stigma of "One More Day." Having said that, the issue's excellent cliffhanger ending suggests that she's going to become a lot more important in the next chapter, and I look forward to seeing how the closing situation plays out.

    Despite its few stylistic faults, the issue definitely pushes the series in an exciting new direction (at least for the time being), injecting some darkness into Peter's life while progressing the everyday soap opera. The art by Barry Kitson, is clear and effective if not all that impressive. Still, the issue's parts do add up to a satisfying whole. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Aug 13, 2009

    This is a solid effort from both the writer and the art team. Mary Jane's return has more substance here than previous and the development of the Chameleon was a good fit for the shifting identities of the characters. A fun issue that will hopefully keep the interest of readers that came back for issue #600. Read Full Review

    Odd transition from last issue to this Chameleon centric arc. Was hoping for more Mary Jane/Peter interaction (or, at least some interaction). Was actually one of the better Brand New Day issues I've read for the simple fact it didn't feel like a BND issue. It was just a SpiderMan comic to me, which was the first time it's felt like that in a long time. Read Full Review
