Seppin Reviews: Amazing Spider-Man #4

Welcome back to our new series in which we review the comics that we read every week. This week Seppin is going to be reviewing Amazing Spider-Man #4 by Nick Spencer and art by Ryan Ottley.




This is a great story. At first, I thought it was going to be a lame version of Freaky Friday, but instead it is bringing to question what are the most important parts of Spider-Man? Who is Spider-Man?

I love this as an introduction arc for Nick Spencer because it allows us to see what he thinks are the important pieces of Peter Parker and his personality. Being a hero, a scientist, a photographer, or just being responsible. I love how these pieces have been split between the two and it allows us to get a different view of Spider-Man and also allows Peter to view himself from a different perspective.

During this issue we continue our path of the two Spider-Men and watch as Peter desperately tries to close the gap to find a way to bring himself back together again. After last issue we learned that Spider-Man didn’t have the responsibility part of himself and it shows a lot here. The ending of this book is really cool and reveals that their memories were split between them too. I’m not going to spoil the great bit of dialogue that they have, but it definitely makes me worry for this Spider-Man.

Overall, it’s a great book and a great introduction to the new Amazing Spider-Man run.
