Amazing Spider-Man #666
as selected by BlueStreak

The Spider-Man Story of the Decade begins with this! The Spider-Island Prelude. Super-star writer Dan Slott and fan-favorite Spidey artist Stefano Caselli are back! New York has been INFESTED and the web grows as it gets ready to explode into SPIDER-ISLAND! Normal people are getting Spider-Powers! But not all of them realize that with great power must also come... you know the rest. Okay, sure we often say Peter Parker's life will never be the same. But listen, pal, we've never been more serious. Heroes and villains are crawling all over Manahttan and no one knows why. This will change everything for Pete, for Spidey... and possibly for YOU! Look at it this way... If EVERYONE'S a Spider-Man... then no one is.

Story by Dan Slott

guitarsmashley has next week's pick.

Image
If you would like to join the group, it's easy. Just post a review and I'll add you to the member's list. As long as you stay active, eventually it will be your turn to make a pick.

With $4 comics becoming the norm, the economy being what it is and the growing popularity of mail order services the Review Group recognizes that it's becoming harder and harder to commit to participating each and every week. As long as you can post one review per calendar month you will stay in the member's list. It doesn't matter if you post your review the week of it's release or if you post it later. There is no such thing as a "late" review.

The only request I make is that if you don't plan on posting a review or if you're going to be posting late is that you drop a note in the thread so that I can keep track of who is active and who isn't. The Spreadsheet of Doom is thorough, but it can't read your mind.


Image
Comics are to be scored on a scale from 1-10. 1 being suck, 10 being a damn good comic. Beyond that, there's no right or wrong.

Image
If it's your week, you must announce your selection by 5pm EST the day Diamond releases it's shipping list. If you do not announce your pick at that time, I will add a poll to the thread that will remain open until 12pm EST so that the group can make the selection for that week. (If you're seriously MIA, I'll probably put the poll up sooner) To ensure that you know it's your week, I will PM you when Midtown's list goes live on Thursdays. Also you'd better keep in mind the Amber Atoms rule, if your pick isn't reviewed by 2 or more people you will be exiled from the Group for 1 year. Our definition of a single issue comic is limited to comics listed at $3.99 or lower, anything above that is off limits. Also, to prevent utter filth being chosen deliberately, the Weird Worlds Rule has also gone into affect. Any book scoring a new all-time low (2.12 as of today) will not count as a miss if people wisely choose not to purchase it. Any poor soul who did review the book will earn a free pass on a book of their choice.

I'll be picking next weeks book tomorrow, but I can't guarantee I will be reviewing it since I will be in St. Louis next week or at least not reviewing right away.

I'll review this sometime tomorrow. But for those of you that read it, a question:

[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Is it just me or did Slott basically say without name dropping that the giant white mutated spider guy is Ben Reilly? The other one was clearly defined as Kaine but the way that the dialog was talking about him left me no other alternative BUT Ben Reilly.

Which has kind of lost me as Revelations went as far as to dissolve Ben Reilly's corpse to dust leaving no possible body.

On one hand I enjoyed all the Peter and supporting cast stuff that went on throughout the book. On the other hand.. still not a fan of the Jackal or the fact that this has a lot of the pieces of the Clone Saga going for it. I'm glad he isn't the big bad in this, and curious to who the true bad is. Whomever this mystery woman is hopefully she isn't the Queen from Jenkins woeful arc from way back. I'm hoping it's Ms. Arrow aka the Other. That would explain her control over the big man spiders. Slott did dial Warren down a lot, but he's still the Jackal. I'm curious who the pair tested on given we know who Jackal's big Spider bodyguard is. Is it Spidercide or is it Ben? Really my only real complaint is the tacked on, "Hey kids it's Phil Urich and Norah Winters." But I guess they needed an intro since everyone else was in this issue.

Basically yeah, but Slott left enough head room he could be Spidercide too. But it's also possible given if it's the Queen or Ms. Arrow they could have reassemble Ben using their "Spider" powers.
