Miles Morales Spider-Man #4
Everyone has that one person who thinks we are always up to no good, Usually its an in law, but in this case, it’s Mile’s Principal. Lyle is set to start a cold case against Mr. Morales; he knows he is up to no good. All he has to do is prove that Mile’s is up to no good. Which takes us on an adventure. Mile has always been a good kid (I mean he is a superhero after all). Sure he is late for class, or not in school, but he is saving the world. The downfall to that story is no one knows he is a superhero. We get to see Mile ditch class for a girl (mostly). Which leads to some pretty interesting situation. He happens to save a train from derailing, fighting off Frost Pharaoh, finally off to see a movie which gets him the kiss he has been wanting for a very long time.
When I am reviewing a book, I tend to always read it twice. Once just to read it like I do all my other comics. Then again when I review it. I like to read it as a fan, then as a critic. The reason I mention this; as a fan, I didn’t like the cover. I didn’t like it because the lines appeared a little harsh everything seemed a little boxed. As a critic I loved it. Look at the details in the principals’ jeans, and how literally almost everything has a bright color to help pop. Plus it reminds me of the animation in Spider-Man Into The Verse. In Short shoutout to Marco D’Alfonso on the cover.
The last issue wrapped a big 3-issue story featuring Rhino and Captain America. This was a nice change of pace. You get to see the day in the life of Miles rather than an adventure of Spider-Man. We have all missed class for one reason or another. We all have teachers that we feel hate us. I feel this one issue story is relatable to everyone. Saladin is doing a really good job with Miles and the book. He is keeping the characters in the present. The current hairstyles, the clothing choices, pop culture references. Everyone is going to understand this book, which is what makes it such a fun loving gem to read.
Javier on art and David on colors is a match made in heaven. Every panel is good. The panel layout is awesome. I feel like a broken record when it comes to this book, but it’s really fun, a well-done book that I want everyone to read. When it comes to this book, I am probably more of a fan than a critic.
If you want a good Miles Morales run, this is your must-read series.
