Spider-Island continues to be a really enjoyable and surprising event. I loved seeing Peter Parker be heroic without being Spider-Man, and the way he rallied the New Yorkers was pretty awe-inspiring stuff. It reminded me of the Twitter stuff that went on with the London Riots clean-up, but was also the purest expression of Spider-Man’s New Yorkiness I’ve read in a while. He’s the quintessential New York Hero, and Slott is having a lot of fun exploring that. The mystery of Number Six continues to baffle me, I literally have no idea who it is. Is it Ben Reilly? At first I thought it was Doctor Octopus, but now I’m not so sure. One weird thing about this event though is that the last issue of Venom revealed that Spider-King was Steve Rogers, but this issue makes no mention of it at all, weird timing. But I’m sure it’ll all work out in the end, Slott has a lot of webs here, and so far it’s looking like he’ll make it all work.
