    The issue doesn't stop with its delightful main feature, though, delivering a lengthy back-up written by acclaimed television scribe Greg Wiseman of Gargoyles and Spectacular Spider-Man fame, with art by Luke Ross. The issue deals with Flash Thompson's struggle with the five stages of grief, which in his case are experienced in reverse order. The most interesting aspect of Wiseman's script is his decision to invert Thompson's journey, but the rest of it plays out in a rather expected and conventional, albeit appropriately touching, manner. This story probably wouldn't be able to hold up on its own, but fortunately it doesn't need to. Next to Van Lente and Quinnones' awesome lead, Wiseman and Ross' tale makes for a nice little bonus. Together, they make Amazing Spider-Man #622 well worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    While this was a nice interlude from the harried pace of "The Gauntlet," I've been enjoying the resurgence of old Spidey foes. I find that the classic villains make Spider-Man stories more compelling for me, and look forward to Curt Connor's return to these pages in the months to come. Read Full Review
