Amazing Spider-Man #659 comic book review

The Amazing Spider-Man and his teammates in the Future Foundation take a trip to the Caribbean in “Amazing Spider-Man” #659, in which the team attempts to find out what’s been causing dimensional breaches.

The team finds themselves on a beach the team last visited 300 years ago – the same place where Ben Grimm had an adventure as the pirate Blackbeard way back in “Fantastic Four” #5.  The Thing-Spider-Man banter is fantastic throughout.

Dan Slott provides the story, while Fred Van Lente is the scripter. Stefano Caselli is on art.  It’s a good team, and they have the feel of the FF down as well as the feel of Spider-Man.   Caselli provides each character with a distinctive look.

The team finds itself fighting zombies that guard Blackbeard’s treasure on a Caribbean island, in a mountain shaped like a skull.  That gives you an idea of the tone of the book.

“The Amazing Spider-Man”  has been a premiere Marvel Comic for years, and Dan Slott is making the book worthy of that billing again.

One back-up story is a prelude to this summer’s “Infested” storyline, and another teams Spidey up with Ghost Rider.
