Mr. Negative is back and wants only one thing – Martin Li. But how is that possible? Spider-Man is still reeling from the Kindred affair and Peter will not stand for anything else to be taken away from him. So, let’s swing into Amazing Spider-Man #59 and see just how Peter manages to handle this one.

As we enter part two of the Negative Space arc, will Nick Spencer continue down the road of tying up loose ends and getting us some answers, or will he do another 180 and change things up completely again? Let’s be honest, it’s a 50/50 chance he could go down either road. Let’s check out Amazing Spider-Man #59 and find out!
We thankfully begin this issue right where the last left off, with turmoil. Turmoil in who, or what Mr. Negative may or may not be. The turmoil caused by the complete train wreck of what we know of as the Osborn family.
And lastly but surely not least turmoil of Peter Parker/Spider-Man and his decade long journey of self-pity and putting his loved ones in harm’s way.
And to further answer my question from earlier, Marcelo Ferreira does an outstanding job on pencils of providing some flashback scenes that also help remind readers of things that have happened long ago in Nick Spencer’s run of Amazing Spider-Man.
Some set up for future issues is also done. However, not to any loyal reader’s surprise, the setup raises even more questions. And as far as this reviewer is concerned, I am fine with that.
And as usual for a flagship type title like Amazing Spider-Man, we get some awesome variant covers. Check them out!
This issue reminds me of buying comics as a kid from the local drug store. I went in filled with anticipation and came away pleasantly surprised. Not a groundbreaking issue by any means. No major cliffhanger or shocking deaths here. Just some solid storytelling with way above average art, and it leaves me wondering what’ll happen next!
