REVIEW: Peter Parker: The Amazing Shutterbug #1
Another Wednesday has come and gone, Marvel Blog True Believers, and that means that we’ve got a new stack of comics to review! Next up is another entry in the ongoing Heroes Reborn Marvel Comics event, Peter Parker: The Amazing Shutterbug #1 by Marc Bernardin, Rafael De Latorre, Ron Lim, Scott Hanna, Jim Campbell, and Ariana Maher, with a main cover by Mike McKone and Erick Arciniega.
No power; only great responsibility!
Like the other one-shot tie-in comic released this week, Hyperion & The Imperial Guard #1, this issue gives you a glimpse into the stories of a world that never saw the assembly of the Avengers (and a world where Peter Parker is kinda angry).
The Hyperion one-shot went in one direction with this idea, giving us a glimpse of how the consequences of the alteration would expand outwards to affect the very fabric of the Marvel Comics universe.
By contrast, Peter Parker: The Amazing Shutterbug goes in the opposite direction, digging into a small-scale, personal story that mostly concerns only the members of the Parker family in Queens, New York.
Taken together, these two issues create a fascinating web, effectively demonstrating how the Avengers have had an effect on their world, both large and small! Whether it’s on the cosmic scale or on the personal scale, these stories prove that the efforts of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have indeed made a difference.
Peter Parker: The Amazing Shutterbug #1
In some ways, Peter Parker: The Amazing Shutterbug #1 feels a lot like a “What If…?” story: “What if Peter Parker had never been bitten by the mutated spider?”
However, that isn’t quite accurate, because the consequences of this issue have an effect on the larger Heroes Reborn narrative, as you’ll see in Heroes Reborn #2 (don’t worry, Marvel Blog True Believers, our review for that issue is on the way)!
Did you get a chance to swing through your local comic shop and pick up a copy of this issue? We’re waiting to hear from you! Let us know in the comments.
