    My personal issues with misdirection aside, it is still a pretty strong issue with clever dialog and lots of fun action. Nice art too. McKone would certainly fit in the rotating stable of Spidey-artists. I'm very much looking forward to seeing the bad guys get their asses handed to them for invading the Baxter Building and can't wait to see the neat traps that Slott and Van Lente come up with that'll be part of the FF's security system.

    I wasn't a big fan of this issue. And while I won't say it was bad, I also won't say that I particularly enjoyed anything more than the two page "Infested" back-up. More than anything else, The Amazing Spider-Man #660 acted as a sign of things to come. We have Doc Octopus and the Sinister Six inching closer to Ock's "destiny", Jackal starting to infuse Spider powers to the citizen's of New York, and Ghost Rider finishing up his side story with Spidey just in time for his new solo book - which starts June 8th. If you're a Marvel continuity whore, this issue will be worth picking up. Otherwise, save your $4 this week. Read Full Review

    And, finally, the Carlie Cooper tattoo fiasco in a switcheroo that makes no sense whatsoever and yet is still better than what was shown in last issue with her brilliant idea of branding her body with the image of the man who threw Peter Parker's first love off a bridge. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt May 17, 2011

    The package itself isn't awful, even if it feels like a below average issue of the title. It's hard to argue with getting three different stories advanced in one hit. It's just a shame that the lead feature feels more like an unwelcome diversion than a proper Spider-Man story. Let's hope the token interaction with the FF can now be considered fulfilled, and that the book can return to more conventional Spidey stories. Read Full Review
