The amazing Spider-man coming home

£3.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Peter first meets Ezekiel, an old man with powers much like his own. Ezekiel warns him of a creature that has been hunting super beings for hundred of years, and it has come to New York to hunt and feed on Peter. Ezekiel gives Peter a question which may forever change his conception of his powers: "Was it the radiated spider that gave you those powers, or was the spider trying to give you those powers before the radiation killed it?" The question is almost as perplexing as the answer may be. However, there is not time to delve into it, as the villain has decided to destroy parts of the city to lure out Spider-man. The first battle does not last long, as Peter realizes that his opponent is near invulnerable. He runs away, only to find that his enemy can find him anywhere he goes. Peter's body is utterly broken, and he decides on a last ditch scheme that will allow him to defeat his opponent, but will probably kill him in the process! This is a fantastic book for any fan of comic book. Straczynski is clearly a masterful storyteller, keeping the reader glued on every page. You can hear every thought Peter has as he tries to understand his life. You can feel every pain Peter has as his immortal opponent beats him to a pulp. Straczynski is doing what he does best - tell a story. The artwork is also very good. The reader is treated to a wonderful ballet of colors and excellent flow of story imagery. This is truly a fantastic story that is hidden in the format of a comic book. Great Story, Great Artwork, and possibly the best last page of any comic book.
Along with all the action and adventure you'd expect from a classic Spidey story, it introduced something very different to his mythology - a mythical element to the character that had never been attempted before. This was the first major new story arc of The Amazing Spider-Man this century, which gave back to the wall-crawler much of his gravitas and dramatic flair, in a fight to the finish reminiscent of some of Marvel's greatest classics.
