    As usual, this was an extremely good issue of this series. No surprise there. There's really nothing here I can point to and say I didn't enjoy... Well expect for Carlie, but that's the Mary Jane fan in me talking. Nope, all in all, this was a very good comic, so I might as well post the score and move on. Read Full Review

    This is a fantastic issue, which has a lot of different developments for various characters, both protagonists and antagonists, and packs so much content into this issue that you never feel like the price of $3.99 is too high. Slott makes this issue worth the cost, and gives the reader a great reading experience, and one which isn't over as quickly as in most comics these days, that are done in a more decompressed style. Highly Recommended! Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a good jumping-on point for Amazing Spider-Man, next issue would be the time to do it. However, if you're looking for the last "normal" series of issues for Spider-Man before Spider Island kicks into effect, this storyline is the place to do it. It's a great Spider-Man story without becoming formulaic; numerous "easy way outs" could have been taken that would have diminished the quality of this story greatly. Read Full Review

    Giuseppe Camuncoli's art is passable, not great. Granted, my love for Humberto Ramos is well documented, but that's not the case here. When Camuncoli draws Spider-Man, Anti-Venom or Mr. Negative they look great, everybody else looks rushed and thin. There's no definition to the lines, no weight to it. That really becomes an issue during the action panels, where the three heroes look great, the main villain looks solid, and everybody else hangs there like so much nothing. Even with the so-so art and the holes in the plot, issue 664 is still a win. I'm excited for Spider Island mainly because Dan Slott is writing it and Humberto Ramos is handling the art. I don't think that team up can produce a bad issue of Spider-Man; they know the character too damn well. Read Full Review

    The art in the main story segment is fine, if a little flat at times. Giuseppe Camuncoli's pencils could benefit from stronger, more vibrant colors. Luckily, the art is the star of the show in the Spidey/Shang-Chi backup. Max Fiumara's work is always welcome on this series. Read Full Review
