Collecting Amazing Spiderman 574-577, this comic book is plainly terrific. Just the pictures alone will blow you away. First up, a touching tale with Flash Thompson as the narrator with a shocking reveal at the end. Second, remember that two -bit eighties villian everybody laughed at, Hammerhead? Well, Spidey certainly isn't laughing now! With this new player in the feild, Mr. Negative finally has that edge he's been looking for. Last but not least, Spiderman must help Punisher escape the hands of Moses Magnum. Can Spiderman handle teaming up with this cold killer? Plus, who's behin the spider tracer killings? All in all, this is a terrific volume. I certainly couldn't have done better. It has a terrific storyline, great art, mainly by Chris Bachalo, and witty dialoge, though it does seem to go by fast. It contains a lot of confusion with the Nook because of all the pages that join into each other. Otherwise, it's a great buy.
This book is worth it for the story on Flash Thompson and the tragic events that happened to him while serving in Iraq. The rest was good as well. Liked the update to Hammerhead. Very well done.
This trade paperback just continues the interesting and very fun storyline of the Brand New Day series of Spider-man. I definitely recommend all the recent collections, including this one, and especially the great Secret Invasion Spider-man featuring the quirky Jackpot!
