    Spider-Boy #6 delivers one of the series’ strongest issues yet, and crazily enough there’s not a Spider-Man in sight. That allows Dan Slott to shine the spotlight on Bailey, Christian, and Madame Monstrosity’s Humanimals, and the more the book leans into those elements and characters the better it gets. The issue’s big revelations hit hard and bring up huge questions, and that only makes Christina’s current predicament more compelling, exploring the Humanimals from the inside. Paco Medina, Walden Wong, and Erick Arciniega work wonders with “The Man Upstairs,” and Julian Shaw and Fer Sifuentes-Sujo keep the train running in “So You’re Now a Humanimal,” with both stories featuring their own signature visual flair while feeling part of the same world. Spider-Boy continues to be an absolute delight, and the more we learn about his world and his past, the more undeniable this book becomes.

    Spider-Boy #6 is an exhilarating and campy issue. The exploration of the Humanimals and Madame Monstrosity makes for a fun yet emotional issue. The art and colors of this issue further elevate the story making for a really effective comic. With great storytelling, fun characters, and amazing art, this is definitely an issue to pick up.

    Spider-Boy #6 elevates Madame Monstrosity as a shrewd and clever villain, and then immediately undoes that character’s work with wacky shenanigans that do nothing but fill pages with silliness. The art is solid, and the ending keeps Bailey moving in the right direction, but this issue is a mixed bag.
