Amazing Spider-Man #15 Review

Well that’s a wrap folks, this event is all over or is it? Read on to find out.

The official description from Marvel:


• See the fallout of Spider-Verse and what it means to Peter Parker and the rest of the Spiders!

Amazing Spider-Man 15_Variant CoverIt’s been one heck of a ride for our intrepid web-slingers, but the end is in sight. I have to say, as this issue reflects, it’s been a unique journey for our protagonists. And like it or hate it the creative team presents their fanboys and fangirls with an issue that sends these arachnids home while propping up some additional narrative threads. And you know what? Some of them might actually lead to something downright compelling in the very near future.

Dan Slott, the architect of this madness, has put our own Peter Parker through the wringer. With an army of Spider-Men and Women to back him up he took on the Inheritors and came out the other side. And for the most part, despite a slightly bumpy start, this script deals with that aftermath with ease. The author allows the remaining loose ends to flow smoothly together as several totems returned to where they belong. It needs to be said that some of the jokes did come off a bit forced, however I enjoyed the nods to current arcs that happen to be affecting the rest of Marvel universe.

The visuals for the most part matched the quality of the text while delivering on the action when needed and offering nuance when required. Giuseppe Camuncoli has quickly become one of my favorite illustrators, due to the use of expressive and consistent line-work. Each page is given life through a barrage of talent and skill which, when the colors by Justin Ponsor get added, creates a vibrancy that lights up the display.

Amazing Spider-Man #15 may not deliver every thing fans want but for what we’re given there’s plenty to enjoy. The team wraps up an event that was fun, engaging and worthy of investment. For that reason this release earns the right to come recommended.

  • + Sturdy text.
  • + Engaging visuals.
  • + Clever nods to the future.
  • - Some of the jokes didn't land...
