Book Review: SpiderAmazing Spider-Man Vol. 2: Spider-Verse Prelude

Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 2: Spider-Verse PreludeAmazing Spider-Man Vol. 2: Spider-Verse Prelude by Dan Slott

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


The best thing about the Spider-verse prelude is a bit of story with Ms. Marvel at the start that has nothing to do with this event.

The rest of the book could have been replaced with a sentence with saying, "Someone's killing Spider-powered characters wants to kill them. A time displaced Superior Spider-man (Otto Octavius) begins recruiting Spider-men throughout the universe, with a special emphasis on Spider-men who are willing to kill." That's pretty much the plot. None of the characters are developed enough that you care when they die, they're just there. Some are from popular Marvel spin-offs, though, so you can watch characters who you loved in Universes like 1602 bite the dust. This book is bloody and at the same time dull as its just filling time to get to the end of the book, so we can get into Spider-verse and find out what will happen in the event.
