Description

There is only two down sides in this story.

There is only two down sides in this story. One of them is that Chris Bachalo is replaced by Emma Rios in some of the pages of the arc. I like Rios's work too, but she just didn't fit in this arc, at least for the most part. The other down side of this Graphic novel, is that it is to short. It only contains four (technically five) issues.

This is the darkest story of all the Gauntlet stories.....and it was wonderful. Except for the two Rhino stories, the Lizard story is the strongest of all the Gauntlet stories. But unless you are not a fan of Zeb Wells and/or Chris Bachalo, you'll probably won't like this story. Wells's story is very dark, like I mention, and the tone can be very moody. It isn't as light-hearten as most of Spider-Man's stories, and Spider-Man in the story hardly tells any jokes. He even says "No more jokes." Bachalo's art also makes the story very dark, even though his art is very cartoony. So unless you don't like dark Spider-Man stories, or just not a fan of Wells's or Bachalo's work, you'll probably like this novel.

There is only two down sides in this story. One of them is that Chris Bachalo is replaced by Emma Rios in some of the pages of the arc. I like Rios's work too, but she just didn't fit in this arc, at least for the most part. The other down side of this Graphic novel, is that it is to short. It only contains four (technically five) issues. The first issue (or "Part") is a very good beginning for the arc, even though it didn't have a lot of Spider-Man or the Lizard. It actually showed a lot of Curt Conner (the Lizard's true identity), which turn out not that bad. It is sad to see him in the current state that he is in. Besides we get an AWESOME final two page spread in the end of the first part, so all is forgiven. The second part may have been the weakest issue, if it wasn't for the very sad and dark ending. I don't want to say anything else, because I don't want ruin the story. The third issue is an improvement to the previous issue, because it mainly focused on a good, old Spidey Vs Lizard fight. Even though the fight itself was sort, and it was hard to tell what was happening, it was still entertaining. The fourth, and final issue is probably the strongest, showing a good, but short resolution to this arc.

This book has a good beginning, and a better ending. This arc is probably the strongest Spider-Man story in the Gauntlet sage (next to the Rhino story). It also the one of the few arcs that actually change the villain character. The Lizard comes out an almost completely different character then before. So, unless you are not a fan of Wells's dark story telling, or Bachalo's cartoony art style, this is definite must have for all fans the Gauntlet Saga.

I loved this storyline, but it is not 128 pages long as the description says - it is only 96 pages, or 3/4 the length claimed. That appears to be the case for several other Spider-Man collections. False advertising, folks.

The lizard was always a strange villian. He is one of those that seems to never be as evil as he can be. Well forget that here! The lizard here is brutal and savage. Truley a nightmare of a villian and it makes for great reading. I have not read any other Gauntlet stories so I bet I am missing alot of the story here, but it held up well enough on its own. The art by Bachalo is a little muddy sometimes but it works. I love his spider-man and his version of Lizard is the ebst around.

As the final chapter in The Gauntlet arc, this was the most intense. The Lizard has never been as scary before, nor has a Spider-Man story left such an impression at the end (not for the weak of heart).

While the Kravinoff family's machinations are happening here and there throughout this book, Lizard is the main villain that appears in this volume. As with the other villains that have appeared in "The Gauntlet" event, his powers are amped up in this collection, and his character arc takes a pretty dramatic turn (something happens in this volume, and its effects are still being felt in "Amazing Spider-Man" during my present day as I write this).

SPOILERS:

One of my favorite spider-characters, Kaine, makes a brief cameo in this collection.

Final rating = 3.5 stars

I've enjoyed most of the Gauntlet volumes up until now. The writing in Volume 5: Lizard is awful. And to add to that, the artwork doesn't do it any favors either as it's mostly ugly and confusing to see what is going on.

Spider-Man comics have lately been either you love it or you hate ever since "One More Day" and wasn't helped by Marvel's choice to publish the comic three to four times a month( $3.99 can add up people ). But after finding their legs the Spidey-Brain Trust( Marvel's words not mine ) consisting of a group of writers have been able to put out some really great stories given the occasional misstep or two.

In this volume collecting the "Shed" arc which continues the gauntlet theme we get a Lizard who is reborn but keeps the tragic theme that Spidey and his villians are known for. Conners is looking for a new job in a effort to keep his son who would like the rest of the world have nothing to do with a guy who has a habit of turning into a man sized rampaging lizard. Which is even more amped up after the events in this tbp Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 3: Here There Be Monsters we found out that Conners had actually be in control all those times he had transformed, the kicker here is that The Lizard no longer wants to be pushed to the far back regions of Conners mind and has decided to take over.

Zeb Wells did a great job of not only pointing out Conners just wants to be a dad but the internal conflict once he realises what The Lizard is doing in this war of two minds in one body. He also did a perfect job at showing the horror Spider-man faces as he tries to prevent losing a friend and the violent aftermath due to his failure. This is also helped thanks to the art of Chris Bachalo who has become one of Marvels top artist( plus he's a personal fav of mine ) but the only knock is that given his art style you know that while him on the book is great he's not a artist who can make awesome art for a book that comes out three times a month( this Rios comes in for some filler panels ). Another knock is how the "Nega-Aunt May" story was wrapped up in a single page, I can only speculate that at some point maybe this was going to be a longer plot thread but got cut short for some reason.

All in all I say this was a worthy arc in the Gauntlet series and was a welcome build up for Grim Hunt
