    Amazing Spider-Man #606 was another great read. Amazing Spider-Man has really become a title that I look forward to reading month in month out. With its usual three week a month schedule there is not much waiting time between issues. I look forward to seeing the conclusion of this two-part story on Wednesday. If you have yet to give Amazing Spider-Man a try or come back to this title I recommend picking up this issue along with the last few story arcs as this title has been very good. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Sep 30, 2009

    Amazing Spider-Man #606 and #607 are extremely fun comics that should please pretty much anyone. While the art problems are worth noting, they don't bring down the overall quality of the creative package all that much. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Sep 23, 2009

    In addition to Kelly's numerous comedic set pieces, the issue also includes a creepy prologue involving Madame Web that builds upon a sequence from Amazing #600. How this scene fits in with the return of Black Mask, I have no idea. All I know is that this title is buzzing along marvelously. And with creators like Kelly, Fred Van Lente, and Mike McKone – who delivers Kelly's jokes with precision, and captures the sexiness of Black Cat without resorting to cheesecake – involved, it doesn't look like that will change anytime soon.

    However, this second element is a minor problem that can perhaps be overlooked in favour of the story's otherwise strong premise -- especially given that Felicia's attraction to Spider-Man plays an important part in setting up the knockout cliffhanger, a final moment that's so perfectly awkward that I can't wait to see how Kelly follows it up in the next issue.

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 24, 2009

    This is an entertaining issue that is held back by some nagging issues with the writing, including plot holes, odd characterization, and an opening scene that needed more elaboration before it devolved into a shouting match between Michelle and Norah. The Black Cat/SpiderMan interaction works well, though, and is the focal point of the issue. It's worth checking out, but don't get your hopes too high. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Sep 25, 2009

    Horrible handling of female characters, inexplicable appearance and behaviour of Black Cat and a retread of past stories beyond the standard Brand New Dayera level of rehashing. Just about everything here could have been handled in a better way. Read Full Review
