REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE!

Back in 2014, SPIDER-VERSE brought every Spider-Man ever together. This event spinning out of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 has Christos Gage and Dan Slott teaming up to destroy them all. The Inheritors have somehow gotten out of their radioactive prison planet and made their way to the Marvel Universe. It’s going to take a whole Spider-Army to keep them from TAKING IT ALL! Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones! With Jorge Molina on art, the END OF ALL SPIDERS never looked so good!

Review: Spider-Geddon #1 (of 5)

Back in 2014, Spider-Verse brought every Spider-Man ever together. This event spinning out of Amazing Spider-Man #800 has Christos Gage and Dan Slott teaming up to destroy them all. The Inheritors have somehow gotten out of their radioactive prison planet and made their way to the Marvel Universe. It’s going to take a whole Spider-Army to keep them from TAKING IT ALL! Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones!

Spider-Verse was one of the most fun Marvel events in some time from Marvel. It just screamed fun bringing together so many different versions of Spider-Man from across the Multiverse. That included all-new creations where you can tell creators were just having fun. So, with the announcement of a sequel, I was even more excited. And Spider-Geddon #1 doesn’t disappoint at all.

Based on the concepts of Dan Slott, writer Christos Gage kicks things off with a pure action packed issue that has the Spider-Warrriors coming together to try to stop the Inheritors, vampires that feed on Spider-people. Their first stop? Stopping the Superior Octopus from using the Inheritors’ cloning technology.

The issue is all about the personalities much like the first event. And like that event, it’s just fun. Each character brings something to the mix and there’s even more versions of Spider-Man to keep readers on their toes. And we’ve barely seen them all! I still have issues with Doc Ock like I did in his first issue. There’s just something not clicking for me, but the personality is nailed and when things go off the rails as a reader I had a “oh shit” moment.

The art by Jorge Molina with color by David Curiel and lettering by Travis Landham is excellent. Each character has so much personality and their looks are great. Then there’s the battles that have the perfect balance of chaos and action. You can track what’s going on, it’s not overwhelming. Then there’s that “oh shit” moment and when it hits… it’s just looks amazing. The art and story hit the beat perfect.

I had high expectations for this first issue and it exceeds them. Just a fun event that I can’t wait to see where it goes. Damn near perfection.

Review: Fantastic Four #2

What have Reed, Sue and the kids been up to all this time? What adventures have they been on? What strange new friends have they found along the way? What deadly new enemies have they made? And what are Franklin and Valeria’s new codenames? All these questions will be answered… just in time for ENTIRE UNIVERSES TO DIE!

The return of the Fantastic Four wasn’t quite the reunion we might have expected. Writer Dan Slott instead focused the debut issue on the heart of it all and through Ben and Johnny allowed us the reader to explore our feelings around the absence of this team. There wasn’t a lot of action but there was a lot of heart.

Fantastic Four #2 not only answers so many questions it also delivers a new villain and lots of action. It also gives us an ending that’s hard not to squeal about. Slott nailed the first issue and does it again with this second one.

When we last left Reed, Sue, their kids, and the rest of the Future Foundation, they had decided to explore the brand new multiverse. Here, we find out how opening up fantastical adventures to be explored down the ride. But, as they have built the new multiverse opposite forces want to destroy it and thus we learn about a brand new enemy. Slott sticks to the science of every action creates an opposite reaction.

But where the issue, and Slott’s writing shines, is that fantastical element. Fantastic Four is about the impossible and seeing worlds we’ve never imagines and events we could never comprehend. With the early emphasis on literal world building, Slott reminds us of that and opens up the magic once again. The first issue reminded us about family, this issue reminds us of the infinite possibilities.

The art by Sara Pichelli is solid, though I quibble a bit about Reed’s beard which seems a little odd at some points. The worlds presented look fantastic and while much is it familiar, it still feels alien and exciting. The characters too look great with some aging a bit and others being exactly as we remember.

The comic is magical in so many ways with a great mix of humor, magic, action, and possibilities. Then there’s that ending that reminds us even more why we love the Fantastic Four, their history, and that they are truly Marvel’s first family.
