The Amazing Spider-Man #689 - No Turning Back, Part Two: Cold Blooded Review4
Spider-Man and Morbius think that Dr Connors has been cured of the Lizard. Little do they know that Curt Connors body may be back, but his mind is completely gone.
The fun continues as Spider-Man and Morbius do their best to bring back Doctor Curt Connors. Little do they know, Curt Connors is completely gone and only the Lizard remains. Connors has Morbius and Spidey going at it and it's a fun couple of scenes, and meanwhile, Connors is trying to find a way to turn himself back into the Lizard. This is insanely fun story that reads and feels a bit like a Silver or Bronze age story. It's right to the point, and it has a great flow from start to finish. Dan Slott puts a lot of love into this book, and it shows on the page.
This story is a big leap away from Ends of the Earth, which was incredibly large with an incredibly serious tone to it. For those of you who did not enjoy the immensity of that story, this one will be right up your alley.
Giuseppe Camuncoli is doing a great job on the art. I love how he draws Morbius here, and I really like the two sides of Dr Connors. Obviously, when Connors is around other people, he's very human, and you can see it in the facial expressions. When people aren't around, Camuncoli does an awesome job with Connors by going over-the-top with the psychotic looks on his face. He does a fantastic job showing movement in these fight scenes as well.
I've never been a huge Madame Web fan, but I think adding her into this story could be incredibly interesting. I'm really hoping we get to see some of the characters in her vision play into this story.
Overall, I felt like I wanted a lot more out of this issue, and I felt a bit disappointed by the time I got to the end. I'm really enjoying the story as a whole, but it seems this issue didn't 4 pages worth of storytelling throughout the whole issue.
I wish I could give half stars here. Well, I will anyway. This is a 3.5 for me. I love the writing and the art on this book, and I'm glad this book is a lot of fun to read. On the downside, I felt like I wanted more because the story didn't move forward enough in this issue.
Overall, I recommend this issue, but highly recommend the overall story thus far.
