    This doesnt add much to the mythos nor build of SPIDER-VERSE, but thats not really what its here for. Its here to be a single serving of another take on the Spidey we all know and love (and in this case: are glad we dont know and probably kinda hate). I especially got a little fanboy glee when the climax of the issue was revealed and just flat-out loved the horror comic aesthetic of the rest of the issue. Whether or not youre interested in the overall event, this is worth checking out if you want a solid one-shot horror comic.

    The book is written pretty well though, and it’s cool that Chapman makes the moments we get with Patton before his transformation legitimately more unsettling than the ones after. Spider-People monsters are scary enough, but Chapman knows that there’s real terror in a child that clearly has a few screws loose. This book isn’t the strongest in the Edge of Spider-Verse series, but it’s still a pretty fun pre-Halloween scarefest.

    The weakest issue of Edge of Spider-Verse yet, you could probably get away with skipping it.
