About this deal

But when he discovers that Spider-Man is missing now he must take his place and protect the innocent.

Spider-Man's character is written well and you grow to care about Yu and his supporting characters as well. There's nothing wrong with that, of course, though given some of the thematic message of ItSV, I'd say that there's some argument there for the heartfelt idea of "anyone could put on the mask and be Spider-Man, even you" applying to the nature of this release.I’m not a manga reader and it’s not my usual type of read, but I’m a Spider-Man girly and couldn’t resist giving it a go! A wide array of Spidey heroes and villains crop up in this but all are used perfectly so it never feels overstuffed or that the author has added characters for the sake of it. But after donning the real Spider-Man's costume on a whim after mistaking it for discarded cosplay, he soon finds himself in over his head as he's wholly unprepared for what Spidey deals with on a regular basis. It's interesting enough, I suppose, But I'm not sure if I really loved this as a whole, especially if it's starting a whole new kid's journey into the Spiderverse. I liked the overall message and meaning behind the story but it was a bit basic and predictable without a lot of new things to offer.

Mistaken Identity: Emma notices that Yu has bandages on his arm in the exact same spots that "Spider-Man" got hurt while rescuing her from carjackers the day before. We start off with a very tired, defeated, sad looking Spiderman, dropping and throwing away his suit in an alley. I'm a dude trying to get in to Spiderman comics (in 10 yrs I'll be middle age, im probs too old for this but whatever. This seems to be yet another Spiderman reboot, with another new Spidey diving into the fray while Peter is MIA. While it doesn’t play out like he thought it would, Yu perseveres and sees the silver lining behind it, that he made a new friend and that his life is changing for the better.I'm constantly glossing over panels because of the lack of writing in some of them, meaning I skip out on the artists work because I've got no reason to stay in place. The premise is an average teen (who rock climbs, so maybe not THAT average) happens upon Spidey's suit and dons it, with the predictable results. I feel that alot of the potential of this concept, being the hero without having the powers and living up to that Spidey name, was pretty much lost at points and with so much going on there lacked deeper substance. The art style is phenomenal, especially on the few colour panels that are present, the one that made me stop and look at it for a while was towards the end with the black suit in the golden hue of a sunset lit church.

Without the Required Secondary Powers of super-durability that come naturally to heroes like Spidey, swinging and sliding around with webs hurts when you're slamming into or dragging along hard surfaces.Additionally, Aaron Davis appears as a taxi driver, going unnamed but identifiable by both his appearance and his allusion to his Spider-Man fanboy nephew.
