    You Don't Read Comics

    All three of these stories are worth reading, but only the last one could really benefit from a full issue expansion. That puts this issue well and above over the first Vault of Spiders issue, and well worth your reading dollar.

    The anthology format of “Vault of Spiders” has been a real treat, despite some of the stories’ lackluster elements and the somewhat unimportant framing device. The shortness of the stories was a boon to some and a hindrance to others but all were enjoyable in their own rights.

    The “Spider-Geddon” event has been a gold mine for new origin stories thus far, and this issue mostly keeps up the momentum. The three stories in this issue might not be as drastically different as in the first installment, but they all bring enough of their own narrative flair. The first story is just creepy enough to work, while the third arguably doesn’t do enough with its interesting concept. The real highlight here is the second story, which imagines Aunt May as Spider Ma’am, and crafts a surprisingly adorable story out of it.

    Vault of Spiders’ second issue fails to offer up any truly compelling ideas or execution in a smattering of stories that largely lack character and direction save for a wonderful take on Aunt May that feels inconsequential but heartwarming.
