Review: Edge of Spider-Geddon #2

After Gerard Way and Jake Wyatt created SP//dr back in Spider-Verse, she was one of the most requested heroes. With Spider-Geddon on the horizon, SP//dr is back. Edge of Spider-Geddon #2 brings you the next chapter in Peni Parker’s life and set the table for the Spider-Event of 2018!

Too short, that’s the problem with Edge of Spider-Geddon #2. Based on a story by Gerard Way, Lonnie Nadler and Zac Thompson craft what is a very entertaining re-introduction to Peni Parker. But, by the end, we’re given a bit too little. This is an issue that could have benefited from about 25-50% more pages to flesh out some concepts and scenes. But, that’s also a good thing in a way in that the character and concepts are really good too. While the comic feels a little rushed as far as story, things are set up so well that, much like the first issue of this miniseries, we want to see more of this character and world.

Peni Parker and her Spider mech suit is a familiar concept and with the young age of the character and some of the concepts within, it’s hard to not be reminded of Mech Cadet Yu by Grek Pak (this character originated that series). Pak has had a dozen issues to flesh out his ideas though and Nadler and Thompson do their best giving us more Peni and introducing us to this world’s Venom. There’s also Peni’s Uncle Ben and Aunt May to meet, as well as another twist on a villain, and you can see how so much is there, it’s hard to do it all justice. It’s still entertaining though and left us wanting more.

The art by Alberto Albuquerque with color by Tríona Farrell and lettering by Cory Petit is good. There’s of course mechs running around but there’s also a horror aspect to it all later in the issue. What’s shown, while not explained fully, has a bit of a scariness to it all. It’s a mix of the organic and mechanic in a way that is a bit of a flashback to Superman III (you know the scene we’re talking about). With some solid action and character designs, this is a series that feels like it’s made for the tween set, and succeeds in look and story.

More. That’s the gist of it. We want more. This is a great concept with interesting characters and too few pages to explore any of it enough. If an issue gets you to that point and leaves you wanting more instead of frustrated, that’s a good thing right?
