Amazing Spider-Man #699

OK, so one thing that I like about Spider-Man is that he's an intelligent hero who often has to think of a clever solution to his problems.

That's exactly what happens in this issue. (Watch as Chuck struggles mightily to talk about this issue without giving away last month's shocking twist ending!)

Peter Parker finds himself caught in the ultimate deathtrap, and his only weapon is his mind.

The issue features some outstanding art by Humberto Ramos and Victor Olazaba - loaded with energy and enthusiasm.

And that's it for "things I liked in this issue."

The list of what I didn't like would be mush longer. The solution isn't the worst, but the results are horrific - and a proper hero wouldn't have caused it.

A smart one would have figured out a better way.

(There's also a quick joke that serves only to debase a longtime character and disgust the reader.)

Good thing there's only one issue left - this is one comic that desperately needs a reboot. Wonder what Miles Morales is up to?

Grade: C+
