The Chameleon is poised to unleash unspeakable horror on New York City and Spider-Man is nowhere to be found, so the only person who can stop him is...Mary Jane Watson?!

    Fantastic story here. Maybe one of the best post-Brand New Day ASM issues. Incredible character work on the Chameleon who fights the fights of his victims in some twisted sense of loyalty to the lives he's destroyed. I literally cannot wait for the final installment of this arc in two weeks to see how Peter is going to come out of this one and what effect it will have on his life. Read Full Review

    I continue to enjoy the "Red-Headed Stranger" arc far more than I expected, given that it had been advertised as dealing primarily with the return of Mary Jane Watson, but has in fact turned out to be an excellent Chameleon story with soap-opera subplots thrown in. This story has been a great blueprint for how the Chameleon could work in a Spider-Man movie, and this particular issue is an entertaining journey through the life of Peter Parker that's sure to have considerable repercussions for the character in future.

    Fred Van Lente's Chameleon revival arc in Amazing Spider-Man started off well and continues to shine in issue #603, coupling great characterization with complications in Peter's personal life. "Red-Headed Stranger" was a storyline was I skeptical about, but it's turning out to be a winner. Read Full Review

    I almost wish Chameleon could stay as Peter. He was quite entertaining in the role. I'd also hate to be Peter when he finds out about everything Chameleon did as him. That's going to be one bad day. However, ending to this arc looks like it will be a predictable conclusion. Will save judgement until next issue though. Read Full Review
