COMICON‘Spider-Punk' is a pure example of how comic books are a medium through which we can have a ton of fun while also tackling some of the most prevalent issues, sometimes through the specific lens of superheroes. This is the type of comic book series that would be so easy to suggest as one to get someone into comics because it's easy to follow while also being powerful on every single page.

ComicBook.comSpider-Punk #5 closes its big war against Norman Osborn this week with a resounding clash. Things start off hot as our heroes find themselves taking on an army of high-tech apocalyptic villains with blood on their mind. Of course, in true Spider-Man fashion, a bit of friendship and overpowered amps save the day. But with this universe in shambles from capitalist overlords, the bittersweet victory will leave fans wanting more from Spider-Punk's team of misfit heroes.
Weird Science Marvel ComicsSpider-Punk #5 finishes the run as well as could be expected with possibly the strongest issue in the series. The issue-long battle is engaging, and the epilogue ends on a hopeful note. It's not a very good comic, but it's a high point compared to every issue that came before it.
