With Bendis heading to DC to write Superman, it was time for a new beginning for our young Web-Slinger, with it brings Eisner Award-Winning Writer, Saladin Ahmed, not a stranger to Marvel or Superheroes, Saladin did a great job in the Black Bolt series in 2018 it came to no surprise that he was a perfect fit for writing Miles. He brought in some interesting details such as the aspects of Miles’ Culture, it made him and what he is going through feeling more authentic, relatable to the reader. Even though I enjoyed the new characters such as Judge, Starling, the takeaway of this collected volume had to have been the hilarious hijinks of avoiding the Vice-Principal and playing hooky, made me nostalgic of eighties movies; the artwork in this series is phenomenal, artist Javier Carrón’s design work breathed in fresh life in this series, each character maintained their personalities without seeming to be stereotypical.

Final Grade:

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.

The black hero suit, the graffiti spider on the back, and the thin teenager’s body line that can be seen through the suit are unique to Miles. The statue is sculpted to showcase Spidey in a dynamic pose as he uses his double web-shooters, and he’s connected to the base by his shadow that showcases the colorful dotted look of the inside of the particle accelerator seen in the final battle of the movie.
