About this deal

An awkward teenager puts on Spider-Man’s suit, but quickly learns being a hero isn’t all photo ops and social media likes. All being said though this book is the most realised the Spider-Man mythos and character has been done CORRECTLY in forever in the comic book format, probably since Bendis’s work on Miles Morales, so Marvel should be taking notes. But when he discovers that Spider-Man is missing now he must take his place and protect the innocent. We start off with a very tired, defeated, sad looking Spiderman, dropping and throwing away his suit in an alley.

This seems to be yet another Spiderman reboot, with another new Spidey diving into the fray while Peter is MIA.It's an interesting take on Spider-Man and even if Peter is almost absent from the book the story is interesting and engaging. Additionally, Aaron Davis appears as a taxi driver, going unnamed but identifiable by both his appearance and his allusion to his Spider-Man fanboy nephew. One caveat though is I do think this book is aimed at a younger audience as character motivations don’t get too deep and the end leans into near fan fiction at times, but i recommend it all the same. Loved by All: In contrast to his usual Hero with Bad Publicity reputation, Spidey is a beloved hometown hero in this story. And even though the series got cancelled, as far as I’m concerned, I desperately hope the story will continue some day.

I feel that alot of the potential of this concept, being the hero without having the powers and living up to that Spidey name, was pretty much lost at points and with so much going on there lacked deeper substance. With the premiere of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in a couple of days, let’s review Yusuke Osawa’s Spider-Man: Fake Red. But he is game and really does try to help while waiting for the real spidey to get back and take up his suit and mantle. I'm a dude trying to get in to Spiderman comics (in 10 yrs I'll be middle age, im probs too old for this but whatever.While feeling slightly heartbroken by the news, Yu lends his support to Emma and is satisfied with having her as a best friend. Forceful Kiss: Screwball pulls this on Yu (while he's dressed as Spider-Man, of course) as an attention grabbing stunt for her livestream. He happens to come across an abandoned Spider-Man Costume and puts it on, thinking he could be like the Web-Slinger, but it would be fate that would make the fanboy face the most difficult question he has evaded, do I have the power to change my destiny?
