Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25
THE CLONE SAGA – MILES MORALES-STYLE! We finally see the full extent of what the Assessor did when he kidnapped Miles back in #7. This oversized anniversary issue lets the clones loose in Brooklyn and messes with Miles life even more than Peter Parker’s Clone Saga messed HIS life up.
Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 is another entertaining issue. The art by Carmen Carnero and David Curiel is excellent. The characters are well-designed and the proportions are appropriate. I particularly like the use characters with different body types, on display here. A minor quibble I have is that Peter Parker seems to lose his boots at one point in the story and then he has them on again, which may have been a coloring oversight. Overall, though, I am satisfied with the art in this issue.
The story by Saladin Ahmed is solid. Picking up on plot threads dangling from issue seven, Ahmed is on track and I like the inside struggle Miles is going through. This actually is a more action-packed issue for a start of a story arc but since this is actually a continuation of a previous story, I feel that it is appropriate. There are callbacks to Peter Parker’s own Clone Saga but not too much. It is basically written as an understanding that Peter went through something similar that Miles is going through now, acknowledging a past that is not a lot of fans’ favorite without getting overly burdened by it. While I am personally not overly familiar with the original Peter Parker Clone Saga, the call backs for me were not jarring but I do believe that this is going in a different direction than what happened to Peter.
I am enjoying this run and my opinion of Miles remains high! Don't let the clones fool you - this is a great comic!
