Monsters! Part Two
FBI corruption, The Vulture and Roxxon? This thing is everywhere. DeFalco is giving us a Spider-Man that clings to the shadows and does everything alone while we only get little snips of Peter Parker working with Carlie Cooper. It is very clear now that she is not aware that Peter and Spider-Man are the same person at least and she even seems to be slightly anti-Spidey.
It is still very unclear as to where The Vulture actually stands in this human trafficking/Roxxon storyline and why he is in everyone's way. It is also hard to see where it is going exactly. Regardless, it still has potential to be a good little mini-series if the next few issues tie together all of the loose ends. I have been enjoying the art, the story is keeping me intrigued and I can never get enough Spidey but there is a lot this month and I look forward to September where the comic releases will be easier to keep up with.
All in all, I was interested in this issue and look forward to next week but it is a far stretch from a perfect issue....6/10.
