MarvelBlog REVIEW: Spider-Punk #1
The fan-favorite multiversal Spider-Person has arrived with his very own series, and it is a Spider-Man unlike any that has come before him, and it is amazing! This is our review of Spider-Punk #1.
In recent years, due in part to the overwhelming success of projects like Sony Pictures animated masterpieces Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there has been an obsession growing with the various multiversal Spider-Men that are riddled in alternate realities.
The Spider-Verse comics came long before the film, and they introduced readers to this vast collection of multiversal web slingers that added a very fun and distinct wrinkle to the story of Peter Parker and gave writers the freedom to craft these different versions of the hero in their own image.
Characters like Spider-Man Noir and Ghost Spider have been some of the more beloved, but there is no denying that this recent addition is already poised to be a fan favorite- if he wasn’t already- in the recently debuted Spider-Punk #1, a series that presents Hobie Brown and his Spider-Band.
Almost immediately the big draw of this series is the very distinctive art style that is employed by Justin Mason, as it really perfectly embodies the punk feel that the series has done so well in bringing to life, and truly encapsulates this very new world of heroes and villains.
Cody Ziglar continues off the back of his work on the Amazing Spider-Man with a very classic feel to his Spider-Man stories but balanced by his overwhelming creativity that marries the multiversal ideas that the issue employs, with the long and storied history of the characters.
Hobie Brown, Captain Anarchy, and Riri Willams are all characters set to be major focuses of this brand new run after the premiere issue, and the opening installment absolutely builds a lot of excitement about what’s to come from the mind of Ziglar, and this brand new world of heroes.
