About this deal

There’s a great story trapped in this good one, so whilst this review may read harsher I’m moreso lamenting lost potential. Naturally as a teenager he tries it on, goes outside and starts posing and taking pictures of himself only to hear someone screaming for help. An awkward teenager puts on Spider-Man’s suit, but quickly learns being a hero isn’t all photo ops and social media likes. He idolizes Spider-Man while he rock climbs, and when he leaves the gym he likes a picture of Spider-Man on his phone. One caveat though is I do think this book is aimed at a younger audience as character motivations don’t get too deep and the end leans into near fan fiction at times, but i recommend it all the same.

Although, too much dialogue would bloat the A5 sized novel and force it into a standard graphic novel, so it's a trade off I suppose.Especially if they want the character in print to match what’s available in other media adaptations of him right now. A new villain appears a woman named Screwball who plants a bomb and challenges Spiderman to find it on her livestream.

The criminals try to speed up their car, and are in the process of hitting an old lady crossing the street. Ordinary High-School Student: Yu has no superpowers and no business trying to emulate Spider-Man, but does so after being mistaken for the real thing because it's what Spidey would do. This is a Prime example that Peter/Spider-man is a great character and not a loser or a joke he is portrayed to be in the current main Spider-man book. And even though the series got cancelled, as far as I’m concerned, I desperately hope the story will continue some day.Incompatible Orientation: Yu has a crush on his confidant Emma, only to learn that she is a closested lesbian with a crush on one of her classmates.

He puts the costume on and pretends to be the Wall Crawler until he comes face-to-face with the responsibility and the power that Spider-Man carries. Big Bad: Mysterio, who instigates the plot by kidnapping Peter Parker and forcibly bonding him to the Venom symbiote. It's worth the read and might be a new favorite of mine in regards to manga approaches to established Western superheroes. Silk makes a surprising appearance, so if you're a fan of her character you'll be thrilled to see her.Despite the risks to himself, Yu is driven to continually masquerading as the real Spider-Man because he feels it's what Spidey would do in his shoes.
