    Very good issue marred by a few hiccups. Fiumara is an excellent artist and his image of the original Rhino back in action was amazing and worth the price of admission alone. The entire Rhino storyline, save the cause and reasons for his return to action, was top notch and, while I disagree with how they made him come back to crime, I still thoroughly enjoyed the issue and highly recommend it.

    Regardless of that last criticism, Amazing Spider-Man #625 is a great comic. What Kelly and Fiumara have achieved with Rhino is nothing short of remarkable. This issue deserves to be collected right alongside issue #617 in the inevitable collection, if only to serve as an example of how to revamp a villain the right way. Read Full Review

    I really did love this issue and give it a high recommendation to anyone looking for a great exciting and heart breaking story. Despite its glaring flaw it still manages to be one of the best comics Ive read in a long while and any fan of Spider-man should enjoy this. Read Full Review

    This "Gauntlet" storyline is starting to put some wear on Spider-Man and Peter Parker, and while I cannot pretend to know exactly what the endgame is, I am finding most of the issues to be compelling reading. This is certainly one of the most compelling yet. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Mar 16, 2010

    Despite this minor complaint, this is an enjoyable story, and one that gives me hope that Amazing Spider-Man isn't going to slide back into mediocrity after a recent run of above-average issues. Joe Kelly has become easily one of the title's better writers, so I can only hope that he's heavily involved in future issues of the overarching "Gauntlet" storyline. Read Full Review
