    I'm loving this series. Everything about it is just so awesome. Writer David Liss and artist Colton Worley are fantastic on this book. It's darks, gritty, and amazing. I loved how Wolrey sets up each page. His composition is great. Liss does a great job at keeping the reader up-to-date on the world the Spider lives in through some internal monologue.

    If you like reading vigilante comics but you want that old school feel that you miss from the old Batman comics/cartoons read The Spider it will make you feel nostalgic even though the character isn't, at least to most of us. Read Full Review

    While the script is accessible, the plot is hectic. It's surprising how quickly the Spider comes face to face with his enemy in this issue, and it's not as though her crusade against corruption was built up all that much in the first issue. The confrontation stems from convenience in the plotting, not any kind of organic encounter. I think it would've been fun to see more investigation and more of Anput's plotting. Furthermore, the zombie shtick feels tacked on and inconsistent with the villain's other methods. I really didn't care for his over-the-top methods here either. It's one thing to gun down potential killers and rapists, but to blow the fingers off a guy's hand to get him to flee for his life seems... gratuitously dickish. Read Full Review
