To the end of the universe! To the future and back! Up and down the Microverse! And France! These are the varied destinations on the FF’s itinerary. Can Spidey handle the harrowing, universe-spanning antics of the FF?

    Major Spoilers - Rob Rasmussen Apr 30, 2011

    There is not a missed beat in the book. Peter gets to shine on every level for a change, from being a jokester, to a quick thinker, to a great problem solver; we get a fully realized Spider-Man. Each character is otherwise given enough time in the spotlight on their own. My one complaint (and it may not really qualify as that) is the use of the Beastie Boys song, Professor Booty, as it will really age the comic in further years. Still, 4.5 out of 5 stars is good.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Dean Stell Apr 28, 2011

    There are so many good things in this issue that this review could have been a lot longer. But, this is a really good issue that has all of Dan Slott's fun plotting, combined with a typically erudite script from Fred Van Lente. Nice art from Stefano Caselli too. The only thing dragging this down were the kinda average back-ups that served to diminish the whole package. For my $3.99, I'd have rather just had the main story. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Nov 30, -0001

    Amazing Spider-Man #659 was another enjoyable issue of the new Big Time direction for the book. Outside of problems handling Carlies character, both Dan Slott and Fred Van Lente are able to deliver a fun story with Spider-Man out on a mission with his new team in the Future Foundation, aka Fantastic Four. The story does a good job building up Spider-Mans new status quo as part of the FF and continuing the build up of the Sinister Six. Stefano Caselli comes along for the ride by providing some excellent artwork. Spider-Man fans will sure enjoy this issue, and if you have been reading FF then I recommend picking up this arc since it is a great extension to the story Hickman is telling. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp May 4, 2011

    Meanwhile, back in New York, Carlie makes a decision that just might earn her the title of worst girlfriend ever by getting a tattoo of the Green Goblin to spite Peter for lying to her about his plans. So to teach him a lesson she permanently marks herself with the image of the man responsible for killing Peter Parker's first love. Yeah, that should go over real well. I think it's time to dump this chick Spidey and spend some more time with Ms. Marvel. Worth a look. Read Full Review
