Mini-Comic-Review - Spider-Man #1

Name - Spider-Man #1
Published by - Marvel
Writer - Brian Michael Bendis
Artist - Sara Pichelli, Gaetano Carlucci

There is not much to say about Miles Morales' official relaunch as a part of the marvel universe after Secret wars. Except the fact that he is as cool and fresh as ever, having the same interesting cast of characters and the same teenage superhero issues of trying to juggle life and heroics and making quite a mess of it.

So, in the Marvel universe Secret Wars has come to pass, the universe is reborn and Miles gets the title of the adjective less Spider-man. But in a manner of speaking nothing has actually changed much as Miles is his same old-self and have mostly the same supporting cast, while we do get to see some  appearances from the marvel universe characters. 

The storytelling is as smooth as ever with crisp and fine looking drawing which gives main characters both unique personalities and charisma. And it also seems we will get to explore the relationship between the two spider-man personas.

The downside of the issue is that the story seems a bit to slow for my tastes; to me the issue could have been a bit more new reader friendly with a bit more background info; and the inclusion of Mile into the same universe instead of having his own universe still feels like a idea that could backfire at any moment.

This promising start gets 3.5 out of 5 stars.
