Welcome to something new. From now on Seppin and occasionally Rek will be reviewing the comics that appear each week. Each book that they review will get it’s own post and will have it’s own score to the book.
Seppin has decided to start it off with this weeks Amazing Spider-Man #3 by Nick Spencer.
Nick Spencer has only just began writing ASM (Amazing Spider-Man) after the legacy that Dan Slott left and he is doing great. He has brought Peter and Mary Jane back together and is bringing back the fun that comes with Spider-Man.
The last issue left us with quite the predicament when Peter went to meet up with Dr. Connors to talk about finishing college. At the end of ASM #2 Peter is split apart by the Isotope Genome Accelerator. When I say split up, Peter Parker and Spider-Man became two completely different people! It feels like an old-school Spider-Man story and I love that.
This week continues off from that point and explains more about this “clone” and the differences between him and the original Peter Parker. We also get a great look at Peter’s life without Spider-Man and it’s what you would expect. He is spending more time with Mary Jane and helping Aunt May. He’s finding a job and he might actually finish college.
Overall this weeks issue was great and is leading to a fun and action-packed run by Nick Spencer.
Scoring is based on a few categories. Storytelling, Art, Importance, and Character.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 15.5 / 20
