When Spider-Man battles the Lizard there is no turning back Sept. 27 2012
By David Suiter - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Spider-Man has been battling the Lizard for years. It is a constant struggle for the Web-Head. On one hand, the Lizard is a reptilian killer. On the other hand, he is Dr. Curt Connors, a family man, a scientist and a friend to Spider-Man.

In Marvel Comic's Spider-Man: Lizard - No Turning Back by Dan Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli, Spider-Man will find out how far the Lizard has gone to erase the man that is Curt Connors.

The writer, Slott, delves into the inner psyche of the Lizard when a cure has been discovered for his reptilian condition by Morbius, the Living Vampire. Morbius is the victim of science gone wrong just like the Lizard and is testing the cure on the reptile before turning it on himself. The cure as imagined by Slott reverts the Lizard to his human form but the reptile brain remains.

Through the Lizard's attempts to return to his reptilian body, Spider-Man is able to discover the true nature of the Lizard. Could the good man Spider-Man thought he knew in Curt Connors really be the driving force behind the vicious nature of the Lizard? Slott uses the Lizard's test subjects to examine the natural behavior of lizards.

Slott's portrayal of Spider-Man throughout this ordeal digs deep into the character's core. Spider-Man is overcome with guilt over the loss of a friend he could not save; it is pushing him closer to the edge. Using this guilt, Slott puts Spider-Man in unsettling positions where he must make the difficult choices from where there is no going back.

Camuncoli's artwork is stunning in its portrayal of Spider-Man's battle with the Lizard. Spider-Man looks like the hero; he is doing everything within his power to stop the Lizard. Camuncoli's art shows the grace of Spider-Man even as the character takes a beating. Then there is the Lizard who Camuncoli depicts as a menacing creature. The size of the beast compared to the hero gives him his ferociousness, with his slender mid-section that is contorted to all sorts of strange body shapes that captures the monstrosity that was once a man.

Spider-Man's frustration and desperation in his fights with the Lizard and Morbius exudes onto the page. Camuncoli shows you that Spider-Man has had it with these twisted freaks harming others. He has tried to help them but now he can't take it anymore. The art conveys these emotions beautifully.

Spider-Man: Lizard - No Turning Back collects The Amazing Spider-Man issues 688 to 691 (and a story by Kurt Busiek from Untold Tales of Spider-Man). Through the No Turning Back story, Slott and Camuncoli show Spider-Man realizing his limitations. Spider-Man who pledged no one would die while he was around is now realizing the impossible nature of that pledge. The change in Spider-Man begins here.

Dan Slott made a good impression. May 23 2013
By J.B. - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was the first story I read by Dan Slott. I had heard some bad things about comics he wrote, but I was pleasantly surprised. I think this was a great story. It features the Lizard and Morbius as well as cameos from the Kingpin, Hobgoblin, and Mary Jane. There's also a bonus story at the end, showing Peter back in his early days when he was still in high school. Overall, this is a pretty good book.

Great art, great ending June 23 2013
By Kenneth Kamiel - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Can a comic with a memorable ending and excellent visuals redeem a pretty silly story? I don't know how to answer that question. If you decide to purchase this book, get which ever one is less expensive on Amazon, being either the trade paperback or hardcover. You may like it for what it is, but it wouldn't go down in history as one of the better Spider-man stories.

I enjoyed the spin on the characters and it was a fun read. The art work is not to bad either.
A Good, not great story March 3 2014
By Joe - Published on
Format: Paperback
Spider-Man: Lizard - No Turning Back is by no means a game changing thing, but simple, straight forward tale about the Lizard trying to turn back into his true form and turning NY into a reptile infested land. It's something you've heard over again with the Lizard, but the story moves at good pace and has some fun twists. The only real problem I have is that the book is a bit heavy-handed when Spider-Man consistently reminds himself (and us) that he will make sure that NO ONE WILL DIE UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES!!! It get's annoying and played out after a you hear for like the third or fifth time. None the less, it's still an enjoyable story. It honestly felt like something that came from the old 90's animated series. Overall, a fun read.
