The Amazing Spider-Man #78 – Review

Overall, this issue is a little more chilled out than the past couple of books in the title, which no doubts makes sense considering we’ve had a constant stream if non-stop actions and thrills so it’s nice to finally get a little downtime.

Beyond is back and in full swing with the arrival of issue 78!

The plot begins with Spidey (Who is Ben Reilly at the moment so when I say “Spider-man” or any related term I am referring to Ben) trying to escape Morbius after being bitten by him at the end of last issue, Spidey believes that he’s a little rusty and in no shape to be able to defeat Morbius and so he decides to lead him to Ben’s apartment at the Beyond tower. That floor of the building is built with a gate that only let’s specific people in, so when Morbius tries to attach, he actually winds up getting his arm incinerated and is scared off but once Ben gets to Janine and Marcus he falls to the fall from the blood drain and is put in a intensive care room in the tower. Ben’s other career supervisor, Ms. Danger is a bit of a shady character, even going so far to ask the doctor what would happen if they left the bite untreated to try and exploit some new vampire abilities, luckily the antitoxin is administered anyways.
We then cut to Peter Parker, or rather, his unconscious body as the Black Cat sneaks into the hospital room to visit when Mary Jane enters the room! Luckily at this point in the comic, Black cat is on good terms with Amazing Spider-man circle, Felecia turns to leave but MJ asks her to stay. That scene is all we see if Peter this issue.


Following that, Morbius is still on the run and Misty Knight and Coleen Wing are called in to take him down. They manage to take him down as Monica Rambeu enters the fray. Side track for one moment; the plot line with Misty, Colleen and now Monica feels very incomplete to me, it’s like the series, the book is treating them as side characters we should care about (which long time comic readers do) but I don’t really get why they’re here? It’s possible they are part of another title? I’m not totally sure. Anyhow, this issue closes on Ben and Janine finishing up their date and having a nice romancing moment, unsuspecting of KRAVEN watching them from the distance!!! This next story will be the first time we’ve seen this new kraven in action since 2019’s “Hunted” storyline so that will of course be an absolute blast for sure.


Artwork: the artwork in this issue is done by Miles Morales Co creator and Spidey veteran Sara Pichelli and I really enjoyed it. I remember when I was younger, I really wasn’t a fan of her work on 2012’s Spider men mini series but as I’ve aged into a wizened old man, I can now appreciate and take delight in her art (including Spider men) It’s smooth and calm and it somehow just feels real and grounded. It’s almost as if if these characters were real, they would look like how Pichelli illustrates them. Great stuff!



Overall, this issue is a little more chilled out than the past couple of books in the title, which no doubts makes sense considering we’ve had a constant stream if non-stop actions and thrills so it’s nice to finally get a little downtime. This issue was still absolutely great and just makes me want to get my grubby hands on #79. Even the thrice monthly schedule doesn’t quench my thirst for Spider-man. I NEED IT! GIMME!

The Amazing Spider-man #70 Review

Spencer’s final story is about to explode into the stratosphere and this issue is drenched in pure anticipation and fast paced, action packed artwork that is sure to entice readers into Spidey’s biggest threat yet…


The Amazing Spider-man #70Review by Leo Brocklehurst

Written by: Nick Spencer

Released 7/7/21 Published by Marvel Comics

“And answers? Well, we’re ALL looking for those, aren’t we? (…) But we may not like what we find when we GET them”.

Spider-man’s latest fixture is a great book that excites and hypes you up for the next big event of Spider-ness. A perfect prelude with raising stakes and a theme of questions running throughout.

The writing by Nick Spencer is able to set the stage for a storyline that feels like it might actually shake things up for once. Hopefully rectifying Spencer’s biggest flaw in his Spidey run: the lack of change. As you read it, it flows great and is fine for fun little Spidey stories that you can relax to but in the big picture, not much has changed. Sure there have been SOME for sure as it’s almost impossible to go 70 issues without changing anything but it has been an incredibly slow rise. Beginning with Sinister war however, things are looking up for Spidey readers and this issue is evidence.

As I said before, the theme of this issue is one of questions. MJ wants answers for Carlie (who is locked away in a cell with Harry Osborn (double bracket whaaat???) in a place we’re not even sure is on earth at this rate) , Carlie wants answers for Harry, Doc Ock wants answers about things taken from him and Spider-man wants answers on just what is going on??
The lizard and Curt Connors have been separated and the sinister six have vanished, escalating worries around the city and on top of ALL of this, it looks like Mysterio is back in town!!

The art in this issue, done by Federico Vicentini has almost a smooth, manga like style and flow whilst also looking messy and rough. I thought it accompanied the fast pace of the book extremely well; rushing to the big BANG to kick it all off and I can’t wait to see how beat up Spidey gets this time around.


Verdict:

Spencer’s final story is about to explode into the stratosphere and this issue is drenched in pure anticipation and fast paced, action packed artwork that is sure to entice readers into Spidey’s biggest threat yet.

8/10
