REVIEW: Lost Little Boy in Spine-Tingling Spider-Man #5
In Spine-Tingling Spider-Man #5 by Saladin Ahmed, Juan Ferreyra, and Joe Sabino, on Marvel Unlimited, Aunt May has fallen prey to the horrific song that has consumed Smythe and now threatens to consume Peter! Can he (and his Aunt) escape the awful musical fate?
Spine-Tingling Spider-Man #5
In the fifth episode of the Spine-Tingling Spider-Man Infinity Comic on Marvel Unlimited, Peter’s worst fears come to pass: the infectious song that seems to have unmade Smythe now has Aunt May in its grasp! If you were one of the many people who went to see Spider-Man: No Way Home over the weekend, then you may have found these scenes particularly tense!
Once again, one of my favorite parts of Spine-Tingling Spider-Man continues to be the art, specifically in terms of the setting! Not only did New York City look incredible, but the dreamscape that Peter finds himself trapped inside continues to be an uncanny and strange wasteland.
I also enjoyed the way the villain who has been plaguing Peter with the horrible music looks like something out of a nightmare! With every appearance this malevolent entity makes, you half-expect it will start wriggling right before your very eyes!
At the conclusion of this episode, Peter has vowed to eradicate the entity once and for all, and he thinks he knows where in the real world he’ll be able to find it. However, I’m not so sure, Marvel Blog True Believers! This all seems like it’s a little too neat and tidy. I’m not convinced that Peter has escaped from the clutches of this nightmarish monster at all!
