Anyone else trying the new Spidey book? Thoughts so far?
- Spoiler: show
I'm honestly not sure why this book exists (other than Marvel believing they can make money off of two Peter Parker titles). If it was a mini I might understand and it would be a showcase for Bachalo, as I believe his very kinetic art style is the "Non-Stop Action" that the title indicates. It really does pull you through the pages. But this seems a flimsy basis for an ongoing. It is still a little early to tell whether the plot is going to be worth it. I will say Kelly's choice of villain this issue was inspired though; very obscure and yet perfect fit for an idiots-to-geniuses plot. I do wonder if this title will catch up to the new status quo in Amazing Spider-Man or just ignore it. I guess it partially depends on for how long Spencer is going to run that plot. It seems like it would have been wiser to actually base this book around that, with the Non-Stop Action being portrayed as a livestream.
