The Hobgoblin’s back! And he's ready to hit the BIG TIME too - with a whole new bag of tricks! Who's under the mask this time? Is it Roderick Kingsley, Jason Macendale, or somebody else?

    There are a few Spidey-fans out there who have sworn off ASM since Brand New Day, but I strongly encourage you to come back. You're only hurting yourself and are missing out on a really good story line by Slott and Ramos. Read Full Review

    Regardless of the problem I have with corporate name dropping, this is a really good issue. There are great action moments, great dialogue moments, and moments where the art shines. There's not a lot of super heavy continuity concerns that would keep the casual/new reader away, and any questions that would arise can easily be found by doing two minutes of online research. The Amazing Spider-Man #649 is worth buying and earns 4.5 Stars. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Colin Andersen Dec 2, 2010

    So far, I am very satisfied with Big Time. These are more the kind of stories that I have been waiting to see since Brand New Day. Spider-Man/ Peter Parker finally seems like hes moving somewhere in life again like he did back before Civil War ground him to a halt and kept him in place for over 100 issues. My only hope is that Dan Slott can keep the pace up and keep Spider-Man swinging forward like he is now. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 24, 2010

    The drive behind this story is to put Spider-Man in a new situation, and Slott is certainly doing that. It's nice to see things looking up for Peter Parker, but given his history and the ol' Spidey luck, it seems like "Big Time" might be setting Spider-Man up for a bigger fall. I certainly hope I'm wrong, as I quite enjoy my heroes not to be completely driven by angst and put upon by misfortune. Where Slott takes it from here certainly remains to be seen, and I'll be tuning in to see. Read Full Review

    "Big Time" has already met with significant improvement in its second issue. That bodes well for Slott's run on the series. It's clear the writer isn't pulling punches in this new era, and readers can rest easy knowing only that the won't know what to expect moving forward. Read Full Review
