The conclusion to Spidey’s fight with Vulture 2099. What more can you ask of 23 pages?


My Thoughts:

So, I wish I had read this with the previous 2 volumes that dealt with Vulture. This concluded Spidey’s fight with Vulture and honestly, not much happens. They fly/web around and punch each other and Miguel reveals that he’s a lapsed Catholic when the fight goes into a church, but other than, nothing really.

Mig’s brother Gabe and his girlfriend Kasey hook up with some people [a comic book style group of tough mofos] who want to help Spiderman. Only Gabe knows who Spidey is, so his actions are a bit stilted and you know at some point in the future he’ll reveal to someone that Miguel is Spidey.

I am reading these on my 15in laptop and I have to admit, it is a struggle to read some of the text. In some cases I just looked at the pictures of Spidey and Vulture fighting and ignored the teensy-tinsy bit of dialogue. Whenever I finish/give up this series, I plan on re-reading my Silver Sable collection that was the pride and joy of my collection back in the 90’s. She had a 3 year run before being folded back into the general Spiderman universe. Then I shall see if the dialogue is still tiny. Basically, am I getting old eyes or is the digital a crap scan? * grin *

      See, that is why I wish I had read the whole story arc together. The action would have blended much better. But since I’m reading the individual volumes, it is almost impossible to tell where a storyline is going to end and I have no wish to end up reading 6 comic books in a row on my computer screen 🙂

      I think if I did each issue as an individual review, most of them would strike me this way. Comics are good for those with short attention spans, ie, the younger crowd. That’s why us adults [ie, me and Trang!] buy the completed storylines in graphic novel form.
      Except when I’m too cheap in cases like this 🙂

  3. This sounded very anti-climactic. Then again, it probably would feel weird as a single issue. And Silver Sable collection??? 😍😍 Looking forward to hear your thoughts on those.
