REVIEW: Spider-Ham: Great Power, No Responsibility
In the graphic novel Spider-Ham: Great Power, No Responsibility by Steve Foxe, Shadia Amin, and Rae Crawford, available now from Scholastic Graphix, Spider-Ham is finally awarded the respect he deserves: he’s awarded the key to the city in a special ceremony! But when he realizes that he’s lost it, he’ll have to retrace his steps and find out where he left it.
This graphic novel is a fun and funny read that’s perfect for readers of all ages – especially readers of all ages who are huge fans of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (and let’s face it, Marvel Blog True Believers, who among us is not)!
Great Power, No Responsibility
First of all, shout out to the hilarious jokes in this graphic novel, which appear on every level of the story, from dialogue to character design. If, like me, you’re a huge fan of animal jokes, then you’ll absolutely need to check this comic out ASAP!
And it isn’t just animal jokes that get their due in this story: it’s also Marvel jokes! There’s references to Marvel superheroes galore, especially those that have appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And there’s a third kind of joke that gets a lot of mileage, too: jokes about hamburgers, hot dogs, and what they might mean in a world filled with anthropomorphic characters. I thought these gags were all hilarious!
Plus, there is even a scene where Peter Porker travels to Earth-616 and has a conversation with Peter Parker. How great is that?
On top of all this, this graphic novel is easy to read and easy to follow, making it perfect for young readers who are looking for new books to sink their teeth into!
Spider-Ham: Great Power, No Responsibility is available at your local bookstore and/or public library now!
