    Wow! a non-stop take your breath away kind of issue that you're gonna want to read and then read it again a little while later. Basically, it's the Chinese food of comics.

    The Story: Gleason crafts an entertaining, action-packed story in this issue. Queen Goblin is an interesting villain with an ability that sets her apart from other villains and makes her that much more dangerous to them, especially Black Cat. I like seeing Peter struggle with his responsibility while his friends try to keep him on the path of healing and the surprises in the story make it fun and exciting. The Art: Mark Bagley delivers some fantastic visuals throughout the issue. The art is lively, beautifully detailed and filled with great imagery.

    Amazing Spider-Man #89 is a good hero’s return issue that heavily focuses on the new Queen Goblin and Black Cat. It’s lighter on the psychological element, but is action-packed and never boring.

    Judging Amazing Spider-Man #89 solely on the content of the story Patrick Gleason and Mark Bagley did a great job in establishing Queen Goblin as a major threat. How Queen Goblin's introduction helped to further Peter Parker's story in the Beyond Era made his return as Spider-Man even more exciting. That said, all the great character and plot developments further highlighted how Ben Reilly, the current lead Spider-Man, is turning into the least interesting part of this series. We'll see if the next issue can bring Ben up to the level of Peter and all the other great characters in this series.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    Amazing Spider-Man #89 shows more of the Queen Goblin in action as Black Cat steps up to fight her. However, the comic doesn't follow through on that match-up as much as expected. The artwork is good and the comic is well-written, and there's a surprise appearance that will surely excite fans and get the story rolling in the next issue.

    Although we don't see him in action, other than a quick save to save a confused Black Cat from taking a 60-story swan dive onto the pavement, The Amazing Spider-Man #89 offers us Peter Parker back in costume for the first time in several issues.

    A so-so story and inconsistent art leads into the weakest issue of Spider-Man Beyond to date.
