    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Mar 28, 2008

    Eventually, the X-Men show up and tell Liz to join them. Liz wont have it from anyone. She tells everyone to literally go to hell, and runs off into the arms of her best friend, Mary Jane. A lot of good happens from here on, with Peter making another crazy decision involving his waning secret identity. Still, this issues got a lot of great moments and dialog. Im also pleased that it didnt run another one to two issues, either. Bendis wraps the story up perfectly and Stuart Immonen delivers another fantastic issue that has something for everyone. Tender moments, action scenes, moody night shots its all here! Someone please remind me to buy a page of his artwork in the near future. Its that good. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Mar 26, 2008

    Oh, and one last thing, the epilogue for this issue shows a flashback to Liz's dad talking to Magneto about getting a human girl pregnant and how he'd like to have her taken care of and basically everything that prompted Magneto to do what he did this issue. Who was the mystery mutant? The freaking Blob. If I'm Liz, I'm thankful I wasn't told this information. If I'm Liz's mother - what the hell did you have to drink that night you hooked up with the Blob? Read Full Review

    "Amazing Friends" is a surprisingly enjoyable little side story for the title. It makes good use of the shared Ultimate Universe and gives its characters' feelings the respect they deserve. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Mar 28, 2008

    Stuart Immonen works with the script very well as usual. While this issue does not raise the bar of his work in any way, his work has not declined either. Immonens two-page spreads are more effective now, as is recognizing characters that look very different from Mark Bagleys. He continues to do his work on time and with consistent quality.
