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.

Review: Spider-Geddon #1

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!

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.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

After Houdini (Insight Comics) – Harry Houdini is a top-secret operative for the US Government during World War I and the government needs his son to take his place! Sounds like fun to us!

Captain America #4 (Marvel) – Ta-Nehisi Coates’ run on Captain America has been amazing so far and we’re expecting no less from this issue. It’s a perfect blend of action and depth.

Infinite Dark #1 (Top Cow Productions/Image Comics) – The universe has ended and humanity exists on a ship whose occupants await the next Big Bang. But, there’s a murder that needs to be investigated. The concept sounds amazing and original and we’re totally in.

Infinity Wars #4 (Marvel) – The event has been much better than expected and with everything warped, we want to know what what happens next.

Last Space Race #1 (AfterShock Comics) – The pitch for the series which sounds a bit like the Right Stuff and X-Files has us intrigued to find out more about this.

My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies (Image Comics) – Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips with an original graphic novel. Nuff said.

Ruinworld #4 (BOOM! Studios) – Really fun fantasy for all-ages.

Spider-Geddon #1 (Marvel) – Marvel has been putting together a solid lead up to this even which again brings together various Spider-people from around the Multiverse.

Transformers: Unicron #5 (IDW Publishing) – Things are wrapping up and it looks like everyone is dying. This is definitely the dark before the light as IDW brings to a close an epic run of the Transformers that’s been years in the making.

The Wrong Earth #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue of this series was amazing which has two heroes switching places with their multiverse self. Image grim and gritty mixed with a happier version. Add in so much more material in the comic and you’ve got a hell of a package from a publisher that’s showing we should expect more from comics.

Doomsday Clock #7 (DC Comics) – After a bit of a break, the DC event is back and we’re still intrigued as to where it’s all going as it moves into the latter half of its run.

Edge of Spider-Geddon #4 (Marvel) – Each issue so far in this lead up to the main event has been fantastic. All its done is made us wish that each of these characters had their own series! We expect no less from this one.

Extermination #3 (Marvel) – When it comes to the Mutants, Marvel and them seem to be their best when it involves crazy time travel stories. This one has been lots of action and shockers and this is another we have no idea where it’s all going.

Faith: Dreamside #1 (Valiant) – Faith is always a fun time and mixing her with the Dreamside? Yeah, we’re in for that.

Fantasmagoria #1 (Starburns Industries Press) – A horror comic that explors mythology specific to Mexico. That alone has us intrigued to check it all out.

Fearscape #1 (Vault Comics) – This one sounds a bit like a new take on the Sandman and that sort of storytelling. Vault has some fantastic releases so we’re excited to check this out and see what it’s all about.

Fence #10 (BOOM! Studios) – This series has been fantastic bringing the sports manga concept to the twist. BOOM! has been killing it when it comes to that and this one has been amazing with every issue.

Friendo #1 (Vault Comics) – A personal marketing VR has gone haywire. Again, Vault has been top notch when it comes to releases so we’re excited to check this one out.

Gamma #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Pokémon meets Power Rangers… um ok. Sounds awesome to us!

Heroes in Crisis #1 (DC Comics) – There’s been a hell of a build up to this new event series that explores the trauma that superheroes experience.

High Heaven #1 (AHOY Comics) – AHOY’s first release was amazing and we’re expecting more of the same from this upstart publisher that wants to deliver more when it comes to comics.

Illegal (Sourcebooks) – A powerful graphic novel exploring immigration and undocumented immigrants.

Infinity Wars: Iron Hammer #1 (Marvel) – The first issue that mashed together Captain America and Thor was fun and this one with that’s Iron Man and Thor? We’re expecting lots of drinking… and more fun.

Justice League Odyssey #1 (DC Comics) – The space/tech Justice League… you have out attention.

Man-Eaters #1 (Image Comics) – Chelsea Cain… nuff said.

Scarlet #2 (Jinxworld/DC Comics) – The first issue was a great return for the character and series and we want to see if the second issue can continue to deliver.

Spider-Geddon #0 (Marvel) – The newest Spider-Man event is kicking off and Marvel has been rocking it with the Multiverse Spider-Man stuff. Plus, this issue marks the debut of the recent video game version of the character.

Star Trek vs. Transformers #1 (IDW Publishing) – The title really says it all.

Stranger Things #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – The popular television show comes to comics.

Transformers: Lost Light #24 (IDW Publishing) – IDW is wrapping up their current run on Transformers and we have no idea what’s coming next. We just know this series is wrapping up and bringing all the pieces of the puzzle together.
