    Another fantastic reintroduction of one of Spidey's rogue gallery members and one of the best Lizard stories I've read in a long time. Read Full Review

    I've never been the biggest Spider-Man fan, but there have been a few issues that I've really enjoyed, and this is now one of them. Maybe I read a little to into this issue, but that's what made it so enjoyable for me. Read Full Review

    Unfortunately, there is an artistic problem in this issue. Emma Rios steps in for Bachalo and handles the first third of the issue. It's disappointing to see any fill-in artist on this arc. Sadly, it's rare for any multi-issue story on this series to pass by without some fill-in work. I'm getting to the point where I'd welcome a hiatus for the series so that the Spidey Brain Trust can build a longer lead time. But worse is the fact that Emma Rios could not possibly be more different in style and tone from Bachalo. Luckily, she doesn't reuse the same manga-esque style seen on Mark Waid's Strange mini-series. There is a bit more depth and grit on display here, but not nearly enough. Rios isn't inherently wrong for the series, but to pair her with an artist Like Bachalo on such a violent, bleak story seems a very strange choice. The letters page admits that Rios was brought in so Bachalo could focus on issue #632. Hopefully that means the arc will finish on a strong note. Wells and Bachal Read Full Review
