He's confronted the deaths of family and friends - but how will the passing of a fellow hero rock the Wall-Crawler? And what place does Spider-Man have in a world without Captain America?

    However, one element that will always make these Fallen Son issues readable is the high-calibre roster of artists that Marvel has assembled for the project: this time, it's David Finch. I've enjoyed Finch's work on New Avengers and Moon Knight, and he's the perfect fit for a darker story like this, bringing a shadowy, moody feel to every scene without losing the high level of detail that he manages to fit into each panel. One particularly smart touch is the subtly disguised appearance of Wolverine in the book's opening pages, crouching among the gargoyles and headstones of the graveyard as he watches over Spidey. I didn't even notice him until my second read. However, even the great art can't save this issue from feeling pretty superfluous. It's a hollow read, which purports to be deep and meaningful but sadly doesn't really have anything going on beneath the surface. Read Full Review
