    I recommend you guys to pick this issue up. It was a great read and if you like Johnny and Spidey's friendship than this is a must read for you. I know I can't wait for the next issue, and can't wait to be able to see what happens next in this story arc. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - George Marston Feb 29, 2012

    It may not be the most earth-shaking story, but it's exactly the kind of Spider-Man comic I want to read. It's not just a great issue of Amazing Spider-Man, it's one of the best comics I've read this year. Read Full Review

    Outer Realm Comics - Garrett Mar 7, 2012

    Amazing Spider-man #680 is exactly what this book needed to be. Two of the most sarcastic hero's in the marvel-verse, solid art, and a quick two issue arc, make this book a must read for any Spider-fan. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Iann Robinson Mar 2, 2012

    Giuseppe Camuncoli’s art is the only Achilles' heel. Camuncoli isn’t bad, but his art isn’t great. The main problem are human heads, which have the same square jaw, flat head look to them. J. Jonah Jameson constantly looks like the top of a constipated totem pole. Camuncoli has a nice sense of action and definite strong lines in his work. The faces are just hard to get past as are some of the sloppier background pencils. Nothing here is offensive, I just wanted better art for such a tremendous story line. Read Full Review

    Spidey in space? Wouldn’t be the first time. Nice little space adventure that I rather enjoyed, with touches of Spider-Man humour we’re all fond of. Johnny Storm’s impression of Tom Cruise from Risky Business is a riot. I’m new to Giuseppe Camuncoli’s illustrations, but I’m impressed. With the help of inker Klaus Janson & colorist Frank D’Armata, the images of the space station floating in the void of space is quite a sight. Looking forward to the next ish! Written by Dan Slott (Spider Island), Chris Yost (Scarlet Spider) & illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli (Spider-Man : The Return Of Anti-Venom). From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Aaron Duran Mar 5, 2012

    If you missed the Point One issue from a couple weeks back, Amazing Spider-Man #680 is still a great jumping-on point for new readers and a hint at what is to come for long-time fans. While this isn't the book that "changes Spider-Man forever" or "makes you question all that you know," it is a great time with a couple of buddies. In space. With Doc Ock zombies. Come on " you gotta love that. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 29, 2012

    Spider-Man in space. It's not often I get to write that. To make it better, he's not going alone. Spider-Man is known for his humor and quips and having someone to bounce them off of usually makes the story fun and entertaining. There is a reason for Spider-Man needing to take a trip to space. This is the beginning of a bigger story. We're just getting a tease of what's to come. Slott is joined once again by Chris Yost and the two seem to work as well as Spider-Man and his guest star, in a good way, of course. We get a typical cliffhanger that will make you eager for the next issue and the situation will place Spider-Man in yet another situation we haven't seen a million times. Spider-Man has simply been a great deal of fun to read lately and I can't wait for the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joshua Yehl Feb 29, 2012

    A highlight of this issue is seeing the Human Torch team up with Spidey after his apparent death many months ago. Their reunion scene is hilariously crafted by Giuseppe Camuncoli as he shows Johnny in the most embarrassing situation imaginable. Let's just say it involves Rebecca Black's "Friday" song. Camuncoli also knows how to switch gears to convey the danger the pair land themselves in with an incredible full-page shot: Octobots swarm the space station, Spidey looks genuinely frightened thanks to the excellent use of shadowing, and Johnny looks fearsome as he ignites, but anyone who passed sixth grade science knows that his actions have only made matters worse.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Mar 1, 2012

    "Amazing Spider-Man" has continued to deliver great Spider-Man stories, poking into every corner and crevice of the Spider-Man section of the Marvel Universe. This issue, blending Spider-Man's foes, his allies, his employment, his teams and wide-ranging supporting cast is a fine example of what to expect from this series with Dan Slott on board.

    Multiversity Comics - Walt Richardson Mar 1, 2012

    Amazing Spider-Man is one of the more enjoyable superhero titles on the spin-racks these days. A mixture of fun adventuring and engaging character-based drama, it hits all the beats that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko established many moons ago. It isn't always great, but it almost never is bad. The $3.99 price tag is still lamentable, but good comics are good comics. Read Full Review

    There we go, that was a nice, quick review! This was another comic that I didn't really have a problem with. The story was logical(Spidey's friend is in trouble in space. Spidey needs to get to space. The FF have spaceships... etc), while unspectacular. I mean this was a good read and all, but it wasn't something I'd go out of my way recommending... Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Grant McLaughlin Mar 5, 2012

    This is a technically sound issue of Amazing Spider-Man. It has all the ingredients you need for a good comic, but they don't quite come together in the end. The jokes are little too force. The art is a little too standard. There's nothing wrong with the issue per se, but it doesn't quite stack up to some of the other work Slott has done on the very same book, so it suffers by comparison. Read Full Review
