Spider-Men #1 Review

Spider-Men #1 | Writer: Brian Michael Bendis | Art: Sara Pichelli | Colors: Justin Ponsor | Publisher: Marvel Comics | Price: $3.99

The original Ultimate Comics Spider-Man crew is back together with the first installment of this highly anticipated series. One of the things that drew me to the series is how this creative team would handle the original Peter Parker.

For years everyone wanted to see the two web crawlers find a way to team up and now they finally have. Some might be disappointed that it’s Miles Morales, but I think there is a little more of a story here since he is new to the super hero game and he is a different person all together.

The panels with Peter web slinging through the New York skyline and taking in the sights and sounds of the city are beautiful.

They convey to the reader how much he loves his home so sympathy and intrigue will emerge as he enters the Ultimate universes’ Earth.

Miles is barely in this issue, but that was definitely the right call since his since his one page appearance made more of an impact then him being in every page. Peter is the visitor dealing with a whirlwind of emotions when he learns the Ultimate version of him is dead and that his identity was revealed to the world.
