Marvel Action Spider-Man #11
Miles Morales , Ghost-Spider, and Spider-Man battle Venom and are able to bring him to a stop with a cup of hot coffee. I know, I don't understand it, either.
I want to tell you a little about myself before I start on this review. I’m a superhero guy. I’m a licensed comic guy. If you’re looking for a guy that thinks every comic story is a commentary on todays post-modern era you’ll need to look elsewhere. So, it won’t surprise you that much when I tell you that I enjoyed this issue of Marvel Action Spider-Man, written by Delilah S. Dawson. It features the Ghost-Spider, Miles Morales Spider-Man and Spider-Man. Can’t they come up with a better name for Miles than Spider-Man? I mean, if someone askes who beat up Kraven the Hunter and you say “Spider-Man”. They might not know which one that you’re talking about. A hero like Miles deserves his own codename.
Anyway, the “Spideys” start off the issue by stopping Venom from trashing a liquor store, but he manages to slip away when he distracts them. The group goes on to look for Eddie Brock and it takes them to the lab of Dr. Otto Octavius, who knows something about symbiotes, but whatever he knows, he’s not telling. I don’t want to go any farther with story details, as not to spoil anything for any of you. But let me just say, this comic is a good time. There were just a couple story inconsistencies that bothered me (all of a sudden they decide that Venom is a good guy and turn Dr. Octavius to the police?), but they weren’t quite enough to ruin my reading experience. I whish that Dawson maybe would’ve taken a little more time with this story and given it one more pass before giving the script over to artist Davide Tinto.
Hey! Funny you should ask about artist Davide Tinto!! He’s good, He’s really good. This may be an “all ages” book, but it’s certainly drawn with all the detail and respect that a non-all-ages book gets. Tinto is a solid storyteller. He’s got the fundamentals of sequential art down pat, he plays within the rules yet at times break them. He’s a great straight-up comic book artist. I haven’t seen any of his other work, but I would definitely consider picking up a book if he was on it. It’s always nice when you have good art on a book that has an enjoyable story and that’s exactly what you have here.
A solid issue of this title, and a solid issue in general. This one's a great choice for you and every member of your family.
