    I will give this story kudos for ending stronger than it started, with all involved stepping up their game. Unfortunately, between the lack of a real resolution, the major plot holes, and the dated looking art, the stronger effort can only carry this issue so far. It's too bad considering Guggenheim has been the strongest member of the ASM writing team; I would have much rather seen him go out on a better story. Read Full Review

    I suppose it's something of a testament to the book's recent strength that I'm even noticing this drastic dip in quality, as opposed to begrudgingly accepting it as the norm like I would have a year ago. But this storyline and its hokey dinosaur-themed centerpiece is about as entertaining as the dictionary. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Nov 3, 2009

    This isn't a terrible comic: there are a few funny pieces of dialogue, a fair bit of action, and a certain sense of jeopardy created for Spider-Man himself (even if it never really feels legitimate). However, it's nothing special either, and Amazing Spider-Man needs to be a lot better than this if it's going to be able to convince readers to part with their money three times a month to read it.

    As a fan of Ben Reilly and the Clone Saga, I had high hopes for "Who is Ben Reilly?" but it's a go-nowhere story that collapses under its own overly complicated plot, much like the original Clone Saga. Marc Guggenheim has done some good work on "Amazing Spider-Man" over the past 20 months and it's a shame that this is how he leaves the book. Read Full Review

    Just about everything about this conclusion was awful and I can't even put to words my disappointment with how this debacle turned out. They had a golden opportunity to reintroduce some of the better parts of the Clone Saga and turned into into a complete waste of paper. Even me, a Clone Saga fan, does not even want to see any more of this garbage if this is the best they can muster. Read Full Review
