Spidey needs a favor from the Black Cat. Nothing big. He just needs her help stealing one of Mr. Negative’s most valuable possessions. It's not like anything could go oh-so-horribly wrong!

    It's a solid enough issue hampered by this reader's unfamiliarity with the lead villain. Read Full Review

    In the case of Amazing Spider-Man #621, exceptional art makes up for mediocre writing. Still, that doesn't change the fact that I loathe mediocre superhero writing more than putrid superhero writing. In an industry dominated by capes and tights comics, a writer must do his best to make sure his – or at least some – personality bleeds through the tropes and conventions of a superhero book. I never get that from a Slott Spidey comic. One of the best things about this book post-Brand New Day is that it's easy to skip certain arcs without really missing a beat. I wish I had the luxury to skip Slott's. Then again, if I did, I would have missed the chance to see Lark draw Spider-Man. Read Full Review
