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 Edge of Spider-Geddon #2 by Lonnie Nadler, Zac Thompson, and Gerard Way with art by Alberto Jimenez Alburquerque.
I do really enjoy exploring the vast spider-verse. There are so many unique characters that I would love to see join the main universe. For example, Peni Parker is a great character. Her father used to pilot the Sp//dr. Which is a mech suit that is sort of like Spider-Man. Her father died and now we have Peni trying to live in his shoes.
I loved this tie-in book because it continues off of what we knew from Spider-Verse and adds some more to Peni’s story. Although we didn’t get anything important pertaining to the Spider-Geddon event, it is a really fun ride. We are introduced to Ven#m, which is a new mech made to replace Peni, but it goes crazy and becomes a mechanical version of Venom. So, it’s all really cool.
Overall, it is a fun story that builds on Peni’s character with a ton of Japanese influence.
(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?)
