Here’s a review and some major spoilers for Amazing Spider-Man # 697 by Dan Slott and Christos Gage with art by Guiseppi Camuncoli.
The second part of the Hobgoblin vs Hobgoblin story arc continues with Parker and Modell running for dear life while the two Hobgoblins give chase.
Slott and company also manages to bring in a couple of loose characters that haven’t been seen in ASM for quite some time now including Harry Osborn…
|There’s this panel which made Harry Osborn look like Hughie from “The Boys”|
Slott loves to tease us with a lot of stuff regarding to final issue of ASM which is rumored to be the last time we’ll get to see Peter Parker as Spider-Man for the time being. Another returning character that surfaces once again comes in the form of Norman Osborn who emerges from his coma. A coma he suffered in the pages of Avengers and New Avengers.Another Osborn nugget comes when we visit his secret stash…
There are also a number of Octobots running around the city and pointing back to the imminent return of Doctor Octopus next issue.
Anyway there are a number of things to love in this issue. There’s a bit of Osborn’s, a little tension about the future of Peter’s super powered career and then there’s also that moment when we find out that Kingpin has more plans. Oh and then there’s also Julia Carter’s condition after her breakdown two issues ago.
