COMIC Review

Avenging Spider-Man


Wow, what a refreshing read this was!
Avenging Spider-Man is on issue #5 but each issue is kind of a stand alone.  It has the same flavor as Marvel Team Up.  Each issue has Spider-Man working with other heroes, this one has him with Captain America.
What I really like about it is it's simplicity.  It is well written by Zeb Wells and the artist is Leinil Francis Yu. 
Avenging Spidey 5

 This simply is a story about Spider-Man trying to get "in" with Captain America.  The actual "bad guy" in this comic really doesn't matter.  This is more about the VERY FUNNY dialogue between Spider-Man and his friends. 


The artistry is REALLY good!  But the writing is what makes this issue.  In the last few pages you really get a glimpse into the emotions of Spidey and Capt. 


Enjoy this comic, admire the drawings, but allow it to show you a little about yourself in these two heroes.


I recommend this comic!
