Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Amazing Spider-Man #5 written by Nick Spencer and art by Ryan Ottley.
So, we are back to Nick Spencer’s Amazing Spider-Man. I am not sure how I feel about the comic right now. I like the premise of the story and how it splits Peter Parker’s life right down the middle and lets us view all of his personalities. However, I think that it is almost a little underwhelming, or perhaps I was a little bored whilst reading this book. I am still very unsure about where I would score it. I know that it isn’t as good as Dan Slott’s run, but who could top that? However, I really am enjoying the life of Peter Parker without all of the crazy shenanigans.
As for the story during this issue, it is basically about Peter trying to get Spider-Man and him back into the same body before they both die. It’s nice to see the two interact and I really love watching a Spider-Man without responsibility, but he seems a little too arrogant to like. Maybe that is intentional, but I don’t like it. We also get very little story for when it comes to the “bad guy”, Mendell Stromm, who seemed to last five seconds in this story. I am interested to see more of these villains Nick Spencer keeps hyping towards like Kraven the Hunter.
Overall, I like the story, but I am not sure where I stand when it comes to ranking it. (But of course, I have to give it a score).
(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: 13 / 20
