This week, Marvel’s long-delayed brand-new Spider-Man miniseries, W.E.B. of Spider-Man, changes into accumulations. The succession is a tie-in to the recently-opened Avengers Campus theme park at Disneyland, but how does it stand on its own as a comic?
W.E.B. of Spider-Man# 1
Writer: Kevin Shinick Artist: Alberto Alburquerque Color Artist: Rachelle Rosenberg Letterer: VC’s Travis Lanham Cover Artist: GuriHiru
The brand-new W.E.B. of Spider-Man miniseries is a bit of an curious wolf. Sure, Marvel gives out umpteen Spidey comics a month, so computing another to the mix isn’t peculiarly a collapse. It’s the series’s status as a theme park tie-in that sets it apart. The designation has to act as essentially an extended ad for one of the rides in Avengers Campus, probably spotlighting different features and aspects of the experience. At the same time, it also ideally should tell a satisfying, entertaining legend. With the first issue in-hand, it looks like W.E.B. of Spider-Man is doing at least one of those things well.
Being based on the theme park ride, it obliges sense that W.E.B. of Spider-Man would also utilize the most readily conspicuous explanation of Spidey- the MCU Peter played by Tom Holland. Writer Kevin Shinick spreads the high school-aged Peter’s Stark Enterprise internship to include the facility highlighted in the ride, the Worldwide Engineering Brigade, and inhabits the rest of the issue’s cast with references either unmistakable from the MCU( Iron Man 3’s Harley Keener, in his comic introduction ), from familiar places( Onome, from Wakanda ), or from other Marvel dimensions that have traversed over with younger mainstream readers( Lunella Lafayette and Doreen Green, aka Moon Girl and Squirrel Girl, respectively ).
Shinick introduces the characters economically for new books, and the ensue aims at oneupmanship from each of them to see who’s the smartest offerings a feeling of their identities. Doreen behaves uncharacteristically aggressive toward Peter upon their satisfy, which was a little off-putting as a longtime fan of hers, but it was still nice to see her again in a foremost role.
Artists Alberto Alburquerque and Rachelle Rosenberg bring everything to life well. W.E.B. is the latest Spidey-related title for Alburquerque, and he represents the webslinger’s action with the appropriate exertion. “Thats a lot” of talking heads in the early sheets as reputations are feed and puts are fixed, but Alburquerque and Rosenberg hinder things visually interesting with lots of character movement and express faces, which adds to the characters’ personalities delicately. Alburquerque also nicely conveys the chaos of the latter half of the issue with interesting page layouts and dynamic directions on the action.
As the first installment of a narrative, W.E.B. of Spider-Man# 1 is headed in the right direction with attribute introductions, some humorou act, and a few riddles set up for future issues to explore. As far as Spidey comics proceed, I’ve unquestionably read worse, though I’ve likewise read better. I also have no idea how representative this comic is of the experience at the Avengers Campus theme park( but hey, if Marvel wanted to send me there to review it, they know where to find me ). This is also unquestionably a comic geared towards first-time comic readers — a document at the end of the issue from editor Devin Lewis interprets the different capacities the members of a imaginative team plays, for example — and parties coming in to the characters from the MCU( or perhaps from a theme park gift shop ). If the first issue is any indication, as a light-colored, entertaining souvenir for Disney vacationers, it looks like W.E.B. of Spider-Man will get the job done.
Final Verdict: BROWSE.
Children of the Atom# 4
Currently, all of the X-titles are wrapped up in the Hellfire Gala storyline, and Children of the Atomis no exception. Also exploiting the carnival as a plan object, the team continues to try and find a way to reach the shores of Krakoa and hurtle the Gala. And even though we’ve already seen the large-scale joker played with the intricate patch quirk at the end of the first issue, we can only assume that writer Vita Ayala has another card up their sleeve, merely getting ready to drop that little joker and mess with our subconscious even more. I desire the feel of this diary as it is highly reminiscent of the New Mutants from when I was a teenager, but certainly realise for this millennium, and Paco Medina’s fast-paced action gels wonderfully with the courteous help of the characters. A solid publication that keeps the ball moving. — GC3
Heroes Reborn# 6
In the penultimate issue of this incredibly strange and, dare I say, subversive Marvel event, the process of developing the Avengers continues to more or less occur behind the scenes while Jason Aaron highlights the members of the Squadron Supreme, this time focusing on Princess Zarda, a rougher and much more violent take on Wonder Woman. This was certainly one of the more unique issues of the streak since Zarda has more of a dexterity for repression and strength than she has on desire or doing the right thing. I procured Erica D’Urso’s artwork to be a perfect complement of this, spotlighting the barbarism and cruelty of the character as opposed to grace and glamour like her DC counterpart. If you’re like me and have been struggling with Aaron’s run on Avengers, this event is a surprise reminder of his concentrations as a novelist and, for the first time in a long time, I can confidently say that I’m elicited to see how this story aims. — HW
Iron Man# 9
Christopher Cantwell and CAFU’s ongoing Korvac epic continues, this time with an issue focused on the line devil, his past, and his search for someone who can finally understand what he’s trying to achieve. Cantwell has set up an eclectic cast of characters during his run, and this question adds an unexpected and welcome addition to the group. The inventive team also do a very good job of seeing books feel for Korvac, even if we know that what he’s contriving is…less than ideal. This is the second straight edition that present-day Tony Stark hasn’t appeared in and candidly I haven’t even missed him. As long as Cantwell, CAFU, and co. continue put forward by great issues like this one, I’m happy to read an Iron Man-less Iron Man comic. — JG
The X-Men installment of the Hellfire Gala too happens to be writer Jonathan Hickman’s final question on the series( but not with the X-line ), and he’s joined by a who’s-who of immense client artists. After the stellar previous publication, though, this one felt a little like going through the motions. The question strokes on elements from earlier in Hickman’s flee, but doesn’t dig much further into them beyond’ hey, remember this thing ,’ which is a little disappointing, but I suppose you have to leave something for the next columnist to play with. As the’ prime’ Hellfire Gala installment of the week, the question too formally introduced the brand-new X-Men team, which would have been a bit more exciting if the lineup hadn’t already been revealed a few months ago. It’s a fine comic, but not the thrilling exit one would have hoped for from Hickman. — JG
