SPIDER-WEEK REVIEW: Spider-Man’s Very Strange Day!
Do you have a young reader who just can’t get enough of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home? You can bring the magic of the Spidey threequel home this holiday season thanks to Spider-Man’s Very Strange Day! by Calliope Glass and Andrew Koth!
Spider-Man’s Very Strange Day!
Spider-Man’s Very Strange Day! is a picture book that’s based on No Way Home. It contains some elements of the story of the threequel (which arrives in theaters tonight, Marvel Blog True Believers), such as the fact that Peter Parker’s identity has been revealed by J. Jonah Jameson, and the fact that he apparently heads to 177A Bleecker Street to visit Doctor Strange after that happens.
However, while I cannot say for certain – I have yet to see No Way Home – I do not think that this storybook follows the whole story of the movie: there is no mention of any of Spidey’s supervillains.
That being said, in addition to Peter Parker and Stephen Strange, this book also includes roles for Wong, MJ, and Ned. I enjoyed the inclusion of all these characters, who are some of my favorite characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
The art in Spider-Man’s Very Strange Day! is super cute, and I especially enjoyed the inclusion of a street map of New York City when the trio of friends head off to the Sanctum Sanctorum.
Plus, the endpapers feature a Strange and awesome design!
In addition to Spider-Man’s Very Strange Day!, based on No Way Home, there is another Spidey storybook by Glass and Kolb: Spider-Man Swings Through Europe!, based on Spider-Man: Far From Home.
And if you have another young reader who has tastes that run more Asgardian than web-slinger, you can consider the Loki Little Golden Book by Arie Kaplan and Hollie Mengert, as well!
