In My Honest Opinion, Dan Slott has done to Peter Parker what has been decades in the works. He has taken the very intelligent Peter Parker and given him the life that he has long since deserved. Is everything perfect for Peter? No, that would be dull. However, Peter is not the under achiever everyone always wrote him as before either. He is using his scientific knowledge and (new) resources to make himself the Spider-man we have always wanted to see.
His first challenge? A new Hobgoblin. The identity of this individual is given in this story and the character is very interesting and entertaining. We also get a glimpse at the next story arc which ushers in even more changes for Peter.
I highly recommend this book for any fan of Spider-Man.
Its fun and goofy without being TOO goofy, its modern but doesn't seem like someones dad who trolled facebook for a week to pick up kid lingo and interests like comics so often do. "Just right" Spider-man, in my opinion.
I will say a lot of the art is much glossier than I prefer, but the stories are fun and well written enough that it doesn't matter that much.
The hobgoblin is portrayed rather deftly. That said, I prefer newer villains, this feels a bit stale. I like the other villains better.
The set pieces are good, but the story lacks real tension before the very end.

Well, I certainly didn't expect this to happen: I really kinda liked this book! I was a Spidey fan, many many years ago, but haven't really picked up a copy of Amazing Spider-Man in, geez, maybe even a couple of decades. I did get hip to Ultimate Spider-Man (and mourn its passing) but after all those tedious years of clones and clones and clones and multiple Carnages and Venoms (and all that horrible Todd Macfarlane art) I just gave up on regular old Spidey books. Then there was that whole Mary Jane-never-happened deal with the devil thing and I thought, sheesh - forget it! But I stumbled across this volume, picked it up cheap and really enjoyed it. Dan Slott's writing has some good old Peter Parker pizazz, and the artwork was kinda fun too. I'm thinking I might pick up a fer more of these recent collections and see how it goes. Make Mine Marvel! (Again!) (Axton)
