Miles Morales: Spider-Man #26
Two Spider-Men find themselves face to face with the three terrifying clones. Peter thought he knew what to expect out of a Clone Saga, but this one throws him for a loop and Miles into the deep end of the ocean. Miles tries to keep his Spider-Side away from the rest of his life but this time he’s got no say in the matter.
The cover of this issue is fantastic. It really highlights the main concept of the issue the three clones vs the three Spider-Men. It shows the heroes getting the worst in the fight over New York City. The surprise cliffhanger is also preserved and not divulged by the cover as is often the case.
The art is also top notch. I particularly like how Carnero actually is able to create a difference between Miles and the main clone. By the art it gives me the feeling that the clone could be older than the original which is an interesting thought but is also great in the statement that comics should show more than tell.
The backgrounds are also terrific, it is raining and you get the feeling of the weather and the hour of the night by the colors and background elements.
The writing is also very good. I liked the nods to horror movies to create a little humor. Despite the out of this world type of threat we are dealing with, we still get some character develop in Miles that I find refreshing. The main clone is also not stupid. By his actions, we know that he is smart and he knows a lot about the original.
These clones have an endgame and it is something that we all can relate to. This arc continues to amaze me.
