Comic Review: Amazing Spider-Man #641

Written by Joe Quesada

Letters by Joe Caramagna
Price: $3.99
Marvel Comics
Release date: September 9, 2010

At the time of its release, Marvel’s decision to make Peter Parker single again after years of being married to Mary-Jane Watson was met with mixed emotions at best. Many felt that the story told in “One More Day” was inconsistent with previous Spider-Man stories, especially the part where Peter makes a deal with Mephisto to rescue his Aunt May, which many thought was too cosmic, or out there a concept to appear in the more street-level Spider-Man. Others wondered why Marvel felt that an unmarried Spider-Man is so much more superior to a married one. Over the last four issues, we have been revisiting the “One More Day” storyline in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man, with a story called “One Moment in Time,” brought to us by writer and Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada. Amazing Spider-Man #641 brings the storyline to a close, which is a good thing, because this was pretty much a completely unnecessary story that went on for three issues too long.

Price: $3.99
Release date: June 23, 2010

Amazing Spider-Man has been one of the most consistently entertaining books Marvel has put out since the Brand New Day relaunch, and with Amazing Spider-Man #635 we are coming to the close of the second major story arc in the book. When Marvel changed the format of the book to the three times a month release schedule, they wisely decided to spend the first year introducing some new villains and telling the overarching story of the Spider-tracer killer. Once that story was done, the made another wise decision to refocus on some of Spidey’s more classic villains, and that’s what we’ve been seeing for the last several months with “The Gauntlet” storyline which is reaching is conclusion with “The Grim Hunt.”

Comic Review: Amazing Spider-Man #625

Amazing Spider-Man 625Amazing Spider-Man #625
Writer: Joe Kelly
Artist: Max Fiumara
Colorist: Fabio D’Auria
Letterer: Joe Caramagna
Marvel Comics
Price: $2.99
Release date: March 17, 2010

As much as I have enjoyed recent issues of Amazing Spider-Man, and I have, one of my favorite issues was the return of the Rhino in issue 617. For Amazing Spider-Man #625 the creative team returns and so does the story of the old Rhino and the new Rhino.

If you remember the previous issue in this plot-line, there’s a new more technological Rhino in town and he wants the skin of the previous or “classic” Rhino. And I mean he wants the skin in a creepy, serial killer, “born unto new worlds where his flesh becomes my key” kind of way. However, the old Rhino has given up his old life for the love of a nice woman and wants nothing to do with the whole situation.

That plotline gets revisited with this week’s issue as we get to see the unfortunate end to the situation, and it’s another high light for the series. Writer Joe Kelly is responsible for most of the best of the recent issues of Spider-Man, and you can tell that he enjoys writing these stories, especially when joined by his Four Eyes collaborator Max Fiumara.

Ben 10 Alien Force DVDBen 10 Alien Force, Season
Vol. 3 DVD | Vol. 4 DVD
Created by Man of Action
Featuring the voices of Yuri Lowenthal, Ashley Johnson, Greg Cipes
Rated Y7
Warner Home Video

Ben 10 Alien Force Vol. 3 and 4 continues the journey of teenage hero Ben Tennyson, the bearer of the DNA changer Ominitrix. With his super powered cousin Gwen and Frienemy Kevin Levin, Ben continues on a mission to track down his Grandpa Max and fight off a new breed of alien invaders known only as the Highbreed. Volumes 3 and 4 collects the end of season one of the hit series and first five episodes of season two of the exciting kids cartoon.

Created by comic book alums Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, and Steven T. Seagle (AKA Man of Action Studios), each episode is pretty much a by the books cartoon geared toward young boys. The heroes encounter a problem. Ben uses the Omnitrix to turn into a new alien to combat said problem. Someone gets hurt or captured or both. Gwen and Kevin flirt in a family friendly way. Ben uses another alien to save the day. It is pretty much a rinse repeat process.

Ben 10 Alien Force: Season One, Vol. 2Ben 10 Alien Force
Season One, Vol. 2
Created by Man of Action
Featuring the voices of Yuri Lowenthal, Ashley Johnson, Greg Cipes
Rated Y7
Warner Home Video
Release Date: January 13, 2009

Ben 10 Alien Force Vol. 2 continues the journey of teenage hero Ben Tennyson. Alongside his cousin Gwen, his former nemesis Kevin Levin, and with the help of his DNA changer the Omintrix , Ben is on a mission to find his Grandpa Max and kick some alien butt along the way. Created by Man of Action (aka comic writers and artists Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Joe Casey, and Steven T. Seagle), Vol. 2 contains four episodes from the first season of the popular cartoon.

There is really nothing new to say about this series that hasn’t already been said. Ben 10 is a by the books cartoon and that is not necessarily a bad thing. It actually reminds me a lot of the old cartoons of yesteryear. It is short and concise and overall, a satisfying experience. Most of the cartoon is hand drawn, a practice that seems to be becoming a lost art. It is also easy to follow for viewers who are just getting into Ben 10 but still able to touch upon pre-existing storylines from previous episodes to give a sense of continuity for long-time viewers.
