Review: No Way Out in Silk #3
In the third issue of the ongoing Silk series, Cindy Moon is an incredibly gifted journalist who is hot on the trail of some seriously bad actors. However, is it possibly she’s in over her head? Things are starting to look that way in Silk #3 by Maurene Goo, Takeshi Miyazawa, Ian Herring, and Ariana Maher, with a main cover by Woo-Chul Lee!
Threats & Menaces
As we noted in our review for the first issue, this series channels classic “Spider-Man vibes,” primarily thanks to the fact that Moon is an especially gifted young person who seems to have found herself in way over her head.
In Silk #3, many aspects of the story make it clear that the noose is circling her neck, and with dramatic irony to spare, that means the reader will find themselves jumping out of their chair and shouting at Moon not to make certain decisions!
Well, good news/bad news, Marvel Blog True Believers: the bad news is she’s gonna make those decisions anyway, but the good news is, you will be rooting for her every step of the way! Even when she’s flirting with her therapist (bad idea) who is secretly the brother of villain currently messing with her life (making it an even worse idea).
Another part of this story I enjoyed: J. Jonah Jameson! I may as well just admit that Jameson is one of my favorite characters in any Marvel universe, especially when he’s sharing a meal with a Spider-Person… does that happen in this issue?
Reader, I urge you to swing to your LCS (that’s local comic shop) to find out!
