A few months ago, there was a ton of buzz going around the streets over a comic book and I didn’t understand fully what the big deal was at the time. I do not usually read Spider-Man comic books so I initially ignored the notion of the Red Goblin and it’s importance until I realized what the buzz was actually about and I freaked out. How could I have ignored such an event of that magnitude, but that is why I have this challenge to make up for a such a thing. That is why I am going to play catch up and for today I have Amazing Spider-Man #794 which was written by Dan Slott (Spider-Verse) and Christos N. Gage (House Of M: Civil War) and illustrated by Wade von Grawbadger (Starman). It’s the start of the event Threat Level: Red and Parker Industries is bankrupt and all Peter has at the moment is his Spider-Man suit. We know that Scorpio gained the knowledge of what was to happen for one year when Peter initially stopped him. So, Peter along with Mockingbird are in England waiting for his arrival. Meanwhile at a facility where dangerous objects are kept hidden away, one object that is very dangerous is about to be stolen.
I have to say that it’s been a very long time since I paid attention to a Spider-Man comic book, but I have to be honest in saying that I like where this is going. I know that issue #800 was just released into the stores, but I am honestly so excited to find out what happens next to Peter and co. now knowing what I found out at the end of this issue. There is plenty of action in this issue whether it’s the scenes in the containment place or when Peter awaits the arrival of Scorpio. I kind of like what they are doing with Peter because he’s still the same guy, but he’s a little whinier than usual because of what has happened in his life, but wouldn’t everyone be like that too if your corporation went bankrupt? I also like where everyone’s head is at in this because theirs an extra added dimension to how people think at this point especially with a disapproving notion of S.H.I.E.L.D. after recent events. The artwork in the comic is excellent as far as I am concerned and I am excited to see how it all turns out in future issues and you have to love a name like Wade von Grawbadger, it’s bad ass. check it out for yourselves and check out my grades below:
