Amazing Spider-Man #679.1 (Get Van Helsinged Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri Feb 17, 2012 10:08 am

An enjoyable issue that works both as a standalone story of ‘Spider-Man Vs. Morbius’ but also continues a running subplot and develops the new supporting cast that Slott has been developing for Peter Parker. We as readers knew that Morbius was the mysterious ‘Number Six’ but this fact was only revealed to Spidey in this issue and it worked really well, especially since Morbius has always been one of his most sympathetic villains. I liked how this issue gave us some more spotlight on Uatu Jackson, before he was just a weird bald kid who had the same name as The Watcher, but now we know some stuff about him as a character, I can’t be the only one who’d like to see an ‘Uatu Jackson: Monster Hunter’ mini-series can I? The last arc developed Grady, and now this story has done the same for Uatu. I know Peter ultimately always returns to the Bugle and supporting characters like Jonah, Betty and Robby Robertson, but it’s cool that the Horizon people are getting some degree of depth. Matt Clark’s art was good, I’ve been a fan of his since ‘Adventures Of Superman’ so it’s cool to see him on a big title like Amazing.
