Title: ‘Til Death Do Us Part!
Series: Web of Spiderman #1
Writer: Louise Simonson
Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars
Genre: Comics
Pages: 25
Words: 2K

This particular Spiderman comic takes place after the Secret Wars (where all the super heroes went off world to fight for/against aliens and got lots of cool tech). Spiderman had gotten a black suit that enhanced his powers but once he came back to earth Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four found out it was a living symbiote and was trying to take Peter Parker over. Reed drove it off with a sonic gun and Parker thought they had it safely locked away.

All that info? They convey in 2 pages. TWO!!! No shilly shallying, no filler, just in your face info dump. That’s how it should be.

And with this comic the suit escapes and tries to take Parker over again. While he’s being attacked by a group of super villains. He fights off the villains but can’t make it to Reed Towers to get help from the Fantastic Four, so he manages to get under some really loud bells and the noise drives the symbiote away. It appears like the noise is enough to actually destroy it and that is where the comic ends.

This was originally published in 1985 or ‘86 which was when Spiderman was really beginning to take off as a comic book hero. He had several comics dedicated to him (Amazing Spiderman, Spectacular Spiderman and now this Web of Spiderman) and seemed to be doing well.

I enjoyed this even while it was just too short for my taste. But I definitely want to keep reading. How long I keep reading, well, that’s an entirely different question 🙂

            1. Considering how long the Simpsons have lasted and how truncated Futurama ended up being, I’m not surprised. Plus, Science Fiction is definitely going to appeal more to me than suburban america 😀

    1. I think we definitely need to read and review multiple issues at once. Bone is making me realize I can’t do one issue a month for a long story.
      So, issues 2-5 to go up on march 23? we can whatsapp about more this weekend if you want.

      1. 2-5 seems doable, i’ll be reading them on the marvel app now, so should be easy. I know I say that and then my review ended up going live later… According to the app this series runs for 38 issues in total?
