Spider-Man and Silk aren't necessarily pals right now, but they've got no choice but to work together when they accidentally travel back in time to just BEFORE they got their spider-powers! Now, they have to get along while stopping a threat to the timeline...WITHOUT accidentally wiping out their own powers! Writer Robbie Thompson (Silk, Venom: Spaceknight) teams with artist Todd Nauck (Nightcrawler, Amazing Spider-Man) to bring us a tale of Amazing Anachronistic Arachnids! Collecting the first two chapters of the Infinite Comic series.

    The main disappointment with this first issue is that the series doesn't exploit the Peter/Cindy dynamic to very good effect. There's little to their interaction beyond Peter's excessive wisecracking and Cindy's exasperated responses. There's a lot of untapped potential there that hopefully Thompson will address in future installments. Read Full Review

    Sadly, the highlight of the issue is W. Scott Forbes' cleanly delineated cover, which refreshingly puts Silk in the forefront despite Spidey's top billing. Thompson does provide a fun (if expected) cliffhanger at the other end of the issue, which gives the future of this miniseries some hope. As it stands now, though, "Amazing Spider-Man & Silk: The Spider(Fly) Effect" #1 isn't really worth the read. Read Full Review
