4.0 out of 5 stars When Spider-Man battles the Lizard there is no turning back Sept. 27 2012
By David Suiter - Published on Amazon.com
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.
4.0 out of 5 stars A Good, not great story March 3 2014
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
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.
1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst Spider-Man stories I've ever read. March 3 2014

Complete garbage. Camuncoli's art was sloppy and confusing while Slott's script was cheesy and uninteresting. It felt like I was reading a preschool storybook instead of an adult graphic novel.
3.0 out of 5 stars "I've had it with you--you monsters! No more!" Jan. 9 2014
By para - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This trade contains the Amazing Spider-Man issues #688-691 and Untold Tales of Ends of Spider-Man #9.

The titular four issue story takes up the majority of this collection. In the aftermath of facing down the Sinister Six and the high cost of victory a depressed Peter faces another harsh situation. The Lizard is back and more twisted and evil than ever, but some extreme and questionable research by one of Peter's Horizon colleagues might hold the key to curing Dr. Connors once and for all.

There are a lot of layers and reversals to this story and it raises some interesting questions about responsibility and redemption. It doesn't come together perfectly and there are some character moments that felt forced, but for the most part it's a tense, solid tale of Spider-Man dealing with monsters of various types.
The art is serviceable, but didn't really impress me. In particular I didn't care for the renditions of Dr. Connors in either form.

A single issue classic style Lizard story by Kurt Busiek from Untold Tales of Spider-Man closes out this trade. It shows a similar situation but somewhat reversed as Spider-Man consults a cured Dr. Connors to try to help a mutated friend named Batwing. This is ok for what it is but feels rather paint-by-numbers. There's a nice character beat for Peter towards the end and the story is a decent companion piece for No Turning Back but at the same time it's nothing special.

Call this firmly middle of the road overall. It's not bad by any means but also not anything really worth going out of your way for.

I enjoyed the spin on the characters and it was a fun read. The art work is not to bad either.
