The Amazing Spider-Man #688

Writer: Dan Slott
Pencils: Giuseppe Camuncoli

I am really happy that "Ends of the Earth" brought me back to Spider-Man. I want to start by saying, it is obvious that Slott is riding on the coat-tails of the new movie coming out by using The Lizard as the main villain in this current issue but it is done so incredibly well.

This whole issue seems to be about Peter finding himself and also finding a way to save everyone. He has always found The Lizard to be a difficult opponent and has never really found a way to deal with him. He may have finally found a way as well as a way to return him to the form of Doctor Connors. The comic is very well done, told in a style that starts with what is currently happening while being riddled with flashbacks to clear the picture up for the readers.

The aftermath of "Ends of the Earth" is definitely there and there is a lot to come from Spider-Man's world. Although The Lizard is the main enemy for the upcoming film, I am certain this is a different form of him. This comic was a pleasure to read.

I give it a 9/10.
