Review: Spider-Man #1

Spider-Man #1

I went into reading Spider-Man #1 trying to know as little as possible. I’m glad I did as I came out of it not only surprised but immediately wanting to see what’s next.

Written by the father/son duo of J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams, the comic is a “new” but familiar take on Spider-Man.

Not set in continuity, I think, the comic has shocking moments that’ll catch you off guard if you’re like me and avoiding spoilers as much as possible.

But, to give a review as to why this comic is so good, we have to go the spoiler route.

A father and son duo are telling a story about a father a son. In this version of Spider-Man, MJ has been murdered during a battle. Twelve years later and we find out Peter and MJ had a son, Ben. Ben lives with Aunt May as Peter is a bit of an absentee father. Ben also has the spirit of justice as his father and some of his father’s abilities. From there, the story is pretty clear.

What the Abrams do is explore a relationship they have. It’s unknown how much of their own life they’ve poured into this but the inclusion of Henry Abrams as a co-writer feels vital as it brings a sense of authenticity. This isn’t a story told from a father’s perspective but both father and son.

Yes, the comic has another fridging which gets old but it’s difficult to explore the aspect the comic seems to be doing without it.

The art Sara Pichelli is fantastic. The ink by Elisabetta D’Amico, the coloring of Dave Stewart, and lettering by Joe Caramagna all come together for a hell of a visual treat. There’s a slight shift in style as the comic jumps ahead which helps with the break. It also sets up an art style that feels rare in comics these day. There’s an almost water color aspect to it all. It just looks beautiful.

I figured the comic would be entertaining but this goes beyond that. This may be the surprise of the week.

J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams Swing on to Spider-Man

Marvel has been counting down and teasing a new Spider-Man project these past few days and we now know what that is. J.J. Abrams along with his son Henry are writing a new Spider-Man series. The series will debut in September and feature art from Sara Pichelli.

The miniseries will feature a new villain named Cadaverous who will cause problems for Spider-Man, his alter ego Peter Parker and also Mary Jane Watson.

The project was pitched by Marvel Editor Nick Lowe 10 years ago. The project really began to begin rolling about a year ago when J.J. began talking about it with Henry.

Find out more about the project in the announcement video above and check out the teaser art by Olivier Coipel below.

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.
