Avenging Spider-Man #2 Review

Posted by Spiderfan001 17 December 2011

With Spidey and Red Hulk getting eaten last issue, it falls on none other than J. Jonah Jameson to save the moloids from enslavement... uh oh.
   


The Story

The moloids rescue Spider-Man and Red Hulk by getting the subterranean monster that ate them last issue to spit them out, but not before the toxins in its belly rendered them unconscious!

Meanwhile, J. Jonah Jameson confronts the leader of the molons, Ra'ktar, with his usual bluster.  When Jonah refuses to bow to Ra'ktar, he inadvertently challenges him to a duel for this throne.

Spidey wakes up to find himself and the Red Hulk being pulled from behind by the moloids.  Spidey realizes that the moloids need help and vows to help them, despite Red Hulk's protests.

As the molons equip J.J. with gladiator armour, the Mole Man reveals that when the molons conquered Subterranea, his moloids fled to the surface to find the rulers of the surface world for help, and subsequently brought back Jameson.  As Jameson is lined up to face Ra'ktar in combat, Red Hulk and Spidey arrive on the scene.  Red Hulk quickly engages Ra'ktar, who quickly defeats the Hulk and stabs him in the chest!

Thoughts

The artwork in Avenging Spider-Man looks amazing.  Joe Mad's pages are big and explosive, and the bright colour palette provided by Ferran Daniel compliments Mad's artwork beautifully.  Meanwhile, Zeb Wells delivers a fun plot and a ton of great exchanges between all the characters.  His Jameson in particular, is spot on and is worth the price of admission alone.  Avenging Spider-Man is a fun, expertly done superhero comic; a great choice for young and old fans alike!
