50th Anniversary: Avenging Spider-Man #11 Review

Posted by Spiderfan001 23 September 2012

Spider-Man teams up with his hero...

The Story

After foiling a bank robbery, Peter meets his Aunt May at Uncle Ben's grave.  The two discuss the impact his death had on them and discover just how much Ben meant to them and how much they mean to each other.


It was great to have Zeb Wells return for one more issue of Avenging, and while this issue was well done, I couldn't help but feel a strong sense of deja vu as I was reading it.  This was another beautifully written tribute to the special bond Peter has with his aunt, but long time readers have seen the themes that play out in this issue many times before.  On the other hand, if you're relatively new to the world of Spider-Man comics, then I would wholeheartedly recommend picking this issue up in the hopes that it will blow you away the same way I was when I first read my favourite Peter/Aunt May story.

While Steve Dillon does a commendable job on the artwork, I think his style is better suited towards grittier types of comics.
