Synopsis: Something is happening to the brightest young minds in New York City, and Spider-Man has found himself in the middle of it. This story is going to show you a side of Peter Parker that neither you nor Peter thought existed. And neither of you will be able to handle it.
Spider-Man has been working with Norah Winters. They have been working to try and find out who is behind the distribution of A Plus. The new smart drug that has been killing off New York Cities smarted immigrant students. However, the Zapata Brothers continue to get in the way of Spider-Man and Nora’s progress. This isn’t helped by the fact that Spidey is running out of webs and is also dealing with extreme fatigue.
Chris Bachalo continues to do a great job with the artwork for this issue, which has a lot more action in it. I loved the sequence where we see a full-on collision between a train and a truck, which Spidey and Nora barely escape from. I also loved the reveal of Zemo on the last couple of pages.
Joe Kelly and Chris Bachalo continue to work as a great team on this comic, which is perhaps the most action-packed Spider-Man book to have passed my way in some time. I loved the wisecracking from Spider-Man as he struggled in his battle against the Zapata Brothers who are a lot smarter now. Then they were in Spidey’s previous encounters with them. As with all the issues so far. The artwork has been amazing as has the action.
Overall. A fantastic story, which has a real sense of danger and urgency to it. And the way in which Zemo is introduced at the close of this issue is nicely timed. I can’t wait to read the next issue.
