So I have for you guys today Amazing Spider-Man #795 which was once again written by Dan Slott (Spider-Verse) and Christos N. Gage (House Of M: Civil War) and illustrated by Wade von Grawbadger (Starman). So, let’s recap a bit, shall we? In the events of issue #794, Parker Industries is bankrupt and literally 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 traveled to England where they battled Scorpio until Peter was able to outsmart him and defeat him. Meanwhile, we find out that Norman Osborne hired a crew to infiltrate a facility that housed dangerous things that included the Carnage Symbiote which they stole and gave to their boss. In issue #795, we find out that things are just getting worse for Peter because now he has no girlfriend (Mockingbird dumped him) and he has to get a crappy apartment because he has no money. That is until he gets an invite from one of the most unlikeliest of Gods of Asgard. In other parts of New York, Norman Osborne is about find out just how dangerous the Carnage symbiote really is.
I definitely enjoyed where they went with his character in this one because Peter literally has nothing, but his Spidey suit. We get to see one of the coolest superheroes in Marvel history struggle a bit because he has lost everything after all. Little bit of a spoiler alert, but I need to find out how Loki gained control of what Doctor Strange has in Doctor Strange #391. I won’t go any further as far as details are concerned, but it would be nice to know how that all went down. I hadn’t been following Spider-Man all that much so I had no idea that he was dating Mockingbird until this issue and that situation all made sense soon after. The writing is great because they give you a little bit of comedy to go along with the great action that is presented in this issue. Now as far as the artwork in the comic is concerned, I still think it’s excellent and you have to love what Grawbadger is bringing to the table for sure. He’s captured the essence of Spider-Man if you ask me and that is truly all we can ask for. I think that things are about to get a whole lot more interesting in the very next issue and I pity whoever doesn’t want to see it. Check out my grades below:
