Love & Radiation
So, for the first time in years I actually enjoyed something written by Brian Michael Bendis, which is nice—the newly collected trade paperback version of Spider-Men, wherein adult Peter Parker—the Spider-Man of the Marvel Universe—is stranded in the Ultimate Universe and meets Miles Morales, the Spider-successor on that side.
It’s fun. It makes use of Mysterio, and I have a soft spot for Mysterio. It also reminds me that the Ultimate Universe isn’t necessarily bad, even though I was long ago disappointed and frustrated enough to consider it toxic territory. Consequently it was also my first actual exposure to Miles Morales, who seems like a sweet character. Again, I’m sad that while Peter is now dead in the Marvel Universe too, he’s been replaced by Doc Ock’s creepy spirit, rather than importing Miles across.
The story’s pretty basic, but the characterization is good and Sara Pichelli’s artwork is fluid and dynamic, carrying some of the spirit of the Jim Cheung covers. I recommend it.
