    Weekly Comic Book Review

    The Spider-Verse keeps you guessing, so the readers are along for the ride just as much as our Spider-Man, and the conflict keeps the stakes raised and the action high. It’s sad that the publisher’s agenda keeps interrupting the flow, and characters have to be scattered to various titles rather than keeping the story contained. Thankfully, that doesn’t keep the story itself from being one of the most exciting Spidey-stories in recent years.

    This issue was action packed from the very beginning, no doubt about it; however, it did seem to be rather fast paced with a “we haven’t seen nothing yet” feeling to it.

    ASM #10 wasn’t as big as a hit as issue #9, it still delivers a ton of fun. Dan Slott loves this character and it shows. Yes, at times, it’s a fan service book, but that’s not such a bad thing in this case because it’s involved in a very interesting story, conceptually. Luckily, it’s also executed well too, and the art team is top notch. While this issue left me feeling like something was missing, overall, it’s an awesome issue and I’m loving this arc.

    Spider-Verse is moving at a very nice pace. Slott keeps the characters bouncing off one another, and he’s got more than a few interesting mysteries building in the background. I definitely want to know why Kaine is so important as ‘The Other’, likewise what it means to be ‘The Bride’ or ‘The Scion’. He’s building some interesting spider mythology here, and I am eating it up. It’s also nice to see the Superior Spider-Man back in the saddle, and Miles Morales is a fun addition to the cast. Really, it’s just fun to see all these spider characters interact. That’s all I want from Spider-Verse.

    This issue serves as the major launching point for the various tie-ins and spinoffs Marvel has in the wings. On one hand, it’s nice to see Slott find time for so many alternate Spider-Men and Women to shine as numerous characters are shifted along the board. Many old favorites are given their due, while a handful of new players leave an impression as well (particularly Spider-Punk). Even with the scope as big and dire as it is, Slott finds room for humor and banter. The interaction between Spider-Monkey and Spider-Ham is priceless. On the other hand, the final pages are a nonstop barrage of exit scenes and editor’s captions directing readers to this tie-in or that tie-in. Hopefully this issue has taken care of all that editorial business and the core Spider-Verse conflict can resume its normal course in the next chapter.

    Olivier Coipel’s artwork is always on point and truly shines in making distinguishing all of the Spider-Men so it’s not a chore to tell them all apart. This book has a lot of moving parts that are easy to keep track of which produces a fun read that is about to heat up.

    Oh, Mr. Slott, if Spider-Ham has truly bought the farm, you and I will have serious issues.

    If you’re reading Spider-Verse, you need this issue. It just would have been nice to know which issues we didn’t need up to this point. Some might think the story rotating on various dimes is exciting, but I think it’s just sneaky. I feel like this issue could have been paced much better if Marvel hadn’t wasted so much time and paper up to this point. This is the first time in the series that it feels poorly planned out. I really hope it gets back on track next issue.
