    This title has been like a rock for the last year where I just expect it to be good every issue. I can't wait until next week to see the conclusion! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Apr 25, 2010

    Overall, then, it's a fairly high quality issue. The variety of characters is unusual, but makes a refreshing change from the recent parade of reinvented Spidey villains that allegedly comprises "The Gauntlet" -- indeed, this issue seems so divorced from that plot, with scant mention of the regular supporting cast, that one wonders if it wasn't some sort of inventory. Still, a book with Spidey's rapid schedule can get away with that once in a while, and although this comic doesn't reinvent the wheel, it does at least give it a satisfying spin that justifies the cover price.

    You'll get the full package when you pick this up. While the feature story is still some familiar fun, I'd almost recommend this just for the back-up. I say you ought to buy this if you're snooping through the shelves this week. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tim Lenaghan Apr 21, 2010

    As if to remind readers that Peter hasn't been time warped back to the heyday of glam rock, an extra story written by Mark Waid and penciled by '90s Spidey artist Todd Nauck is included in the issue. The story would be mostly forgettable if not for the appearance of a certain iron-clad hero who swoops in at the last minute. It continues Waid's economic themed Spidey stories as Peter fights the Absorbing Man while simultaneously phone interviewing for a sales position. However this "extra" story's references to the current status quo of Amazing only make the main feature of this issue feel more misplaced in the larger Spidey framework. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Apr 20, 2010

    The issue also includes a fun little throwaway short story by Mark Waid, Tom Peyer and Todd Nauck that shows Spider-Man fighting off a super-criminal attack whilst simultaneously undertaking a telephone interview for a new job. It's an enjoyable yarn that showcases the two sides of Peter Parker's life effectively, and has a resolutely downbeat ending that feels rather classic in its refusal to allow Peter to catch a break.

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 30, 2010

    What started out strong ends on a bit of a low note. I had high expectations going in, so that may account for my disappointment, but I don't regret my purchase of this arc and still think it had its moments and was an above average story. I think I was hoping for Nothing Can Stop the Juggernaut 2 and set the bar too high though. Read Full Review
