Review: Non-stop Spider-Man #2

Non-Stop Spider-Man #2

There are so many different ways to tackle Spider-Man. You can have a series more focused on Peter and those around him. You can have takes where he takes on global threats. Then there’s the version that’s focused on the action with a kinetic spin to it all. Non-Stop Spider-Man #2 continues that last take with an issue that’s full of energy and over-the-top action.

Joe Kelly keeps up the adventure as Spider-Man is on a personal mission to find out what’s going on with the drugs being sold to smart individuals. As the comic teases, there’s clearly something going on with who the drugs are being targeted but the comic dances around that reveal.

Instead, Kelly keeps the action coming with big explosions and big sequences you can really only do in a comic. Buildings explode from a helicopter attack, a truck makes its way into the sewer, it’s all so insane it’s hard to not smile and just enjoy.

What Kelly also does is give us a Spider-Man that’s off his game in a way. The drug use has hit him close and impacted a friend. He’s working on anger as much as anything else which has the character a little off his usual leading to small mistakes. He’s a half-step off and makes things more of a challenge.

Chris Bachalo‘s art is the draw. As much as Kelly’s story is entertaining, it’s the insane visuals that really draw the reader in. Bachalo is joined by Tim Townsend, Al Vey, and Wayne Faucher on ink, Marcio Menyz on color, and Travis Lanham on lettering. The situations Kelly concocts are so insane but Bachalo delivers it all with an energy and style that only he can pull off. You can hear the explosions. The page layouts continue to impress as well with a flow and look that’s so unique.

Non-Stop Spider-Man #2 is a lot of fun. The art pops from the page. The story is interesting. It’s a second issue that delivers as much excitement as its debut, not an easy thing to do. There’s debates as to how many series are too many for characters but when they’re as unique as this, bring more on!
