Spoilers After The Break: Spider-Women Alpha #1 Review

spider-women_alpha_cover

I think I read all of Marvel’s Spider-Man related books except for Spider-Woman and Silk.  Now, before you start rolling your eyes, it’s not because they are women, I do read Spider-Gwen.  I’ve just never connected with Jessica Drew and am not a big fan of Cindy Moon.

So one has to wonder why I am reading the Spider-Women crossover event when 2/3 of the characters have no interest to me.  I guess the pull of that 1/3 is strong.  And I am a sucker for crossovers.  I also hate reading a book from a series that is part of a crossover and not read the other parts.  After the break, minor spoilers and a look at the book that kicks off the event: Spider-Women Alpha #1.  (Does it need the “#1”?  Marvel insists, but I think it unnecessary.  Anywho…)

Marvel Presents For The 4th Time: Amazing Spider-Man #1

amazing_spider-man_1_2015jpg
Ugh. That glowing green chest spider. Just ugh.

The All-New, All-Different Marvel Universe begins today.  Yes, Secret Wars is still ongoing.  And with issue 6 out today…it still has 3 issues to go.  But Marvel is soldiering on with the relaunch of their new universe.

With Miles Morales joining the MCU proper and supposedly being THE Spider-Man, Peter jetsets around the world in that horrible new costume.  Does any of this make sense?  Does it hold up?  Will it cause me to abandon Spidey like One More Day?  Find out, (mostly) spoiler free, after the cut.  (I say “mostly” as I touch on the basic premise of the setup for this new status quo, but no real plot points.)

Jimmy Attempts To Read All Of Secret Wars XXVI

ant_man_last_days_1

Not that we need more Secret Wars tie-ins (they are at over 200 and counting), but I feel like Marvel has wasted most opportunities with their Last Days branded books.  None appear to be of consequence (Silver Surfer is making an attempt to be, but likely won’t), few deal directly with the events of the multiverse ending incursions (Magneto, Ms. Marvel) and the rest either use it as an unnecessary framing device or completely ignore it (Punisher, Black Widow).

After the cut I will have a quick look at the following:  Ant-Man: Last Days #1, Silver Surfer #13, Silver Surfer #14, Black Widow #20, Ms. Marvel #17, Ms. Marvel #18, Magneto #21, Loki Agent Of Asgard #17, Spider-Woman #10 and Silk #7.

That’s a lot more issues than I usually cover in an update, but they should be short as I really only cover them in regards to Secret Wars, and most of them had little relevance. Note, this way be spoilers.

Spinning The Web

The groundwork for the ideas at the center of Spider-Verse are rooted way back in Amazing Spider-Man Vol 2 #30 (2001) by J. Michael Straczynski and John Romita Jr.  The next handful of issues of the series would see the debuts of Ezekiel Sims and Morlun.  And also the introduction of the concepts of Spider-Totems, beings who feed on them and Ezekiel building bunkers to hide Totems from Inheritors.
