Something horrible is happening to Peter Parker’s fellow students at EMPIRE STATE UNIVERSITY and it’s all coming down hard on Spider-Man.
Non-Stop

Synopsis: Once again we get some Non-Stop action in this issue. Something horrible is happening to Peter Parker’s fellow students at EMPIRE STATE UNIVERSITY and it’s all coming down hard on Spider-Man.

 

The Story

After rescuing Kel just in the nick of time. Spidey angrily continues his investigation into the new smart drug that is hitting New York. To that end. He enlists the help of Peter Parker’s ace reporter friend Norah Winters. As the two put their heads together. They figure out that the drug dealer selling the smart drug is targeting mostly smart people of colour. As they hit the streets in search of answers. Spidey and Norah get attacked by the Zapata Brother’s, which begs the question. Why would two Mexican guys want to harm smart people of other races? Also, how did they suddenly go from being a pair of knuckleheads to being super smart without any side effects?

 

The Artwork

Chris Bachalo gets to draw plenty of Non-Stop action for this issue. But he also does some great work for the quieter and more thoughtful moments where Norah Winters and Peter Parker have a chat and exchange information about the new drug. But the introduction of the Zapata Brothers is brilliantly drawn as they arrive in a giant monster truck. We also get some fantastic layouts in this book, which are pure eye candy.

 

Overall

This second issue of Joe Kelly’s Non-Stop Spider-Man picks up things brilliantly from where the last issue left off. I really enjoyed the introduction of Norah Winters and the fun banter that she shares with both Peter Parker and Spider-Man.

The introduction of the Zapata Brothers is done brilliantly. I loved the giant monster truck that they arrived in as well as the subsequent banter that they share with Spider-Man while they are battling.

Overall. A solid second issue.
