Lashing out in his newly feral mutated form, Morbius the Living Vampire draws the attention of none other than Spider-Man! As per usual when super people meet the two come to blows but cooler heads prevail and the two combine their genius together to attempt to cure Morbius once and for all. Everything seems hunky dory until one unexpected turn: Elizabeth the vengeance seeking vampire hunter crashes the party.
Ya ever just want a straightforward, entertaining comic? Something that’s just all around well done and perfect to just kickback and enjoy, get lost in for a bit? Vita Ayala delivers that and more with Morbius #3. It’s a textbook example of why “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” will forever endure as a wise saying. Morbius is back to his usually broody yet entertaining self, like an album by The Cure or something but with fangs. His frenemy relationship with Spidey is still perfectly intact but it doesn’t feel like something we’ve already read, familiar but not tired.
Oh and let’s not go without saying Vita Ayala absolutely nails Spidey’s dialogue. I mean Ayala seriously shows a solid knack for Spider-Man and his unique combo of self deprecation and witty banter in just a couple pages. It’s not only fantastic to read and elevates the overall entertainment value of the issue but also affords artists Marcelo Ferreira and Roberto Poggi a chance to flex their creative muscles. The extremely fluid art on Spider-Man from his masked expressions and his hyperkinetic fighting style rings through just as strong as the horror vibe dripping from Morbius and Elizabeth.
Morbius #3 [Ayala,Ferreira, Poggi,Sanchez-Almara]
A well done and highly entertaining outing of everyone's favorite science vampire Morbius and our friendly neighborhood wall crawler Spider-Man. A perfect afternoon read for a quick pick me up.
