Book Review: Spider-man: Identity Crisis

Spider-Man: Identity Crisis Spider-Man: Identity Crisis by Todd Dezago

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


The follow up to Spider-hunt finds Spider-man a wanted man unable to step outside with a $5 million price tag on his head, so therefore Peter assumes new secret identities...in fact, four of them.

This isn't bad, but it wasn't as good as Spider-Hunt. Don't get me wrong, there are some fun ideas in here. The idea of each of the existing Spider-men books having Peter in a different identity and each of those identities playing into his an aspect of his character is cool. And I love the one story where he worked out so all four identities appeared in the same fight. But man oh man, the realization of these characters were uneven. I think it was hurt by the fact that he only got 2 issues as each of these alternate characters. I think three issues would have made it better as the storylines would have had more room to breathe.

As it is, the book is okay with a few portions being really good, and a few being sub-part. It's a big hit and miss, but I'm glad I read it.
