Review of the Week: Superior Spider-man #11

If you haven't already check out my reviews for issues 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6AU, 7, 8, 9, and 10. The story to this issue is pretty simple. Alistair Smythe the Spider-Slayer is being executed and Mayor Jameson wants Ock-Spidey there in case anything goes wrong. It of course does as Smythe has an army of mini robots show up to form an exoskeleton armor on him. Turns out though has he tries many different ways to escape Ock-Spidey're little Spider-bots have counter measures. So Smythe's robots attach themselves to Vulture, Scorpion, and Boomerang, all of whom had been seriously injured by Ock-Spidey to get them back on their feet and ready to help Smythe escape.

This issue was pretty good and I think this series is starting to pick back up after issue 9 left a bad taste in my mouth and issue 10 did little to wash it out for me. The characterization of Jameson was dead on and very nuanced and interesting, and even Smythe, a villain I never much cared for was pretty bad ass. Definitely worth getting.
