A SPIDER-GEDDON TIE-IN!
• Spider-Force is falling, one member at a time.
• The Inheritor Verna will stop at nothing to get the Solus Crystal to bring her father back to life-and killing all of Spider-Force would be icing on the cake.
• Will Jessica sacrifice everything to save the Multiverse?

Review: Spider-Force #1

The deadliest mission in all of Spider-Geddon has come up and Kaine has stepped forward for what he’s sure will be a suicide mission. But he can’t do it alone and Jessica Drew, A.K.A. Spider-Woman has signed on to help, but has Kaine told her the whole truth? With Ashley Barton, from the Old Man Logan universe, and two new characters (Astro-Spider and Spider-Kid), Kaine’s team is complete and their first mission may be their last!

You know those movies that drop you into the action and when things look really bad they rewind to show you how things went sideways and who everyone is? That’s Spider-Force #1 in a nutshell. Writer Priest has delivered a blockbuster action issue full of excitement, humor, and action.

Spider-Geddon has a benefit that Spider-Verse had as well. The bad guys are pretty clear, the multiverse is involved, and it’s focused on the Spider-Man universe. That keeps things clear and limited but at the same time unlimited when it comes to adding characters. What Priest, like other creators in this toolbox has done, is give us new characters that twist the Peter Parker we know and clash with the Spider-heroes we already have. The first issue delivers Spider-Kid whose personality clashes a bit with the rest. Add in the already abrasive Kaine and then the rather professional and conservative Jessica Drew and you’ve got an interesting mix with just that. And Priest plays that up, especially Ashley Barton and Spider-Kid’s interactions. Those personalities playing off of each other is part of the fun and it’s clear Priest knows that.

What’s also solid is that while this is part of the bigger storyline, I can read just it and enjoy it. It’s an “in addition to” so far instead of a must read allowing it to play in the pond and do its own thing.

The art from Paulo Siqueira, ink by Oren Junior and Craig Yueng, color by Guru e-FX, and lettering by Joe Sabino is fantastic. There’s an energy to the visuals that matches Priest’s style. Though this is a spin-off from an event, the visuals don’t fall into the “B team” trap so many comics like it do. It feels like a main event story visually and the worlds we’re jettisoned off to are interesting with some solid designs for the new characters.

Great dialogue, solid action, cool story, Spider-Force #1 is another win for the Spider-Geddon event.

Review: The Hunt for Wolverine #1

The return of Wolverine begins here, providing the first piece of a mystery that will leave no corner of the Marvel Universe untouched. Just as the X-Men have finally come to terms with Logan’s death, they learn a terrible secret. Old wounds will be re-opened, truths questioned, and an epic quest begun. The earliest clues to the mystery of Wolverine’s return are laid down here… who will solve it first?

Wolverine is back. We already know that. But, how did it happen? Who knows? That’s what Hunt for Wolverine reveals. I’ll admit, I am rather shocked as to how much I enjoyed this first issue. Writer Charles Soule is beyond talented but I wasn’t too keen on the Death of Wolverine, so his return, I didn’t expect much at all.

This issue though… wow, it’s a solid set up and goes in directions I wasn’t expecting at all.

The story is really three parts. There’s a portion that takes us back to Wolverine’s encased body as the Reavers attempt to snatch it for… some reason. The X-Men show up and there’s a battle and that’s when things get interesting. See, there’s a secret they’ve been hiding about their encased teammate and that’s what has made me enjoy the story. The unexpected is where it’s at and to reveal any of that will decrease the enjoyment.

Are there answers? No, not really. This doesn’t tell you what happened fully. What the issue does do is lead into the various spin-offs that will send individuals across the world looking for a returned Wolverine and attempt to figure out exactly how that happened.

The art by David Marquez and Paulo Siqueira is hit and miss. The first story involving the Reavers looks fantastic. There’s solid action and the page layouts impress. It’s the second story with Tony that’s more of a miss. Compared to the first it just doesn’t hold up and it frankly reminds me of event spin-offs that don’t have the same quality as the main event comic. While it’s not bad, it also doesn’t excite at all.

I’m not sure what I was expecting as far as a story but this definitely wasn’t it. There are things in here that actually had me surprised and wanting to get the answers to come. This comic is supposed to do exactly that and in that way it succeeds and then some.
