Amazing Spider-Man #570 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Amazing Spider-Man #570, about which I write the following sentences: "Some readers might think it's beyond silly that these new threats like Anti-Venom and Menace are just variation on classic Spider-Man villains. It doesn't seem to indicate that much is 'New' in the 'Brand New Day.' But the tone of this comic is new. It's not the mopey, lumbering pace of the Straczynski issues, and it's nice to be able to see Romita Jr. get a chance to draw a Spider-Man story that doesn't hinge on half a dozen pages of Peter Parker and Mary Jane holding each other in the shadows of their apartment. Eight months after this new direction began, I have no problem declaring it an aesthetic success. 'Amazing Spider-Man' reads better and looks better than it did a year or two ago. And the near-weekly tempo helps keep the energy from issue to issue."
