Review: Spider-Geddon #2

The Inheritors have made landfall and have drawn first blood. Now the Spiders have to gather their army and start their missions. But can it possibly be enough for an incredibly powerful family that eat Spider-People?

Action packed, that’s the only way to describe Spider-Geddon #2 which continues the rollercoaster from the first issue and doesn’t let up. Spider-people are dying, the Inheritors are getting more powerful and a debate how to stop them rages.

Writer Christos Gage has picked up the ball that Dan Slott set up and is running with it in an entertaining fashion. For the last few years, the Spider-Man events have really paid off and lived up to the hype and expectations and this is no exception. The sequel to Spider-Verse, it’s really using the terror of its villains to drive home how much of an uphill battle this is for the various Spider-heroes.

But, what Gage recognizes is this isn’t just Spider-Man in different costumes. These are characters who all have different ways of doing things. They all have different solutions as to how to win. They work together but don’t necessarily get along. There’s confrontation as to how to proceed. Compared to the group mind of the Inheritors, it’s interesting to explore.

The action is put on paper by artist Jorge Molina who along with Jay Leisten, Craig Yeung, and Roberto Poggi on ink and David Curiel on color deliver a comic that looks fantastic. The action is fantastic and there is a tightness that’s created through the art is a timer ticks down before an explosion. Each Spider-person looks great, it’s just top-notch art that has me as excited as the story itself.

Spider-Geddon #2 continues a fantastic event that has delivered at every step and continues Marvel’s knocking it out of the park when it comes to their Spider-Man events. Lots of action, lots of great interactions, and it goes in different directions you might not expect. It’s just fun which is exactly what I’m looking for in this type of story.
