Spoilers on everything, I’m writing as if you’ve read it.
Spider-Men: A couple of notes up front. The only thing I know about the Ultimate Universe is the following- Peter Parker died a hero, Most stuff from Ultimate Spidey #1-30 (I’ve read the trade paperbacks up through 6), and the new Ultimate Spider-Man 1-wherever they’re at now. That means, I have no idea what Mysterio is capable of. We spend most of the book watching ‘normal’ Spider-Man do normal Spider-Man things, love the city, beat up Mysterio and get sucked into a purple vortex where he is immediately confused and then runs into Miles.
It’s Bendis, I knew it was going to be slow paced, but there’s only 5 issues. Things have to happen. I imagine in the end he’s going to get his web-shooters out of this. I’m not even hip to if this is every other week or going to last until Halloween. It was pretty lame for a $4 book, but I’m a Miles fan (and have always been a Peter fan), so I’ll buy it and like it and hope that it crosses into some new territory. I’d give it a B just because it’s fun to look at. Without looking back, I bet it’d be almost the exact same book without words. That’s probably a bad thing.
