Reviews of the Week: Superior Spider-Man #14, Superior Spider-Man Team-Up #1, and Hunger #1
I really like where things are going. Ock-Spidey has his own headquarters at the decommissioned Raft and an army of henchmen. I even like Ock-Spidey's new look. I'm sure I'm not the first to notice this but it's very reminiscent of Ben Reilly's Spider-man costume. This is a great series and is picking steam back up after a bit of a slump. This is also a great jumping on point so check it out.
This was a solid issue and was a step up from the sorry state Avenging Spider-man was in by the end of it's run. Once Avenging stopped being about highlighting Spider-man's Avengers activity and became just a team up book it really lost direction and focus. This might just be a team up book too, but at least it knows and acknowledges it. I'm anxious to see what Ock-Spidey has in store for his former villainous teammates. This is definitely worth checking out.
This was a fun issue. I love multiverse stories so I'm bound to like this at least a little. But this issue did a good job of being new reader friendly. While I used to read Ultimate books religiously I fell out of it after Ultimatum, only coming in and out of them. But this issue did a decent enough job of getting me up to speed on Ultimate Rick Jones so I wasn't lost. Good read and I can't wait for issue two.
