REVIEW: Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #6
Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #6
Writer: Peter David
Artist: Mike Wieringo
It has taken me a few days to get around to writing this review. In the last two weeks, I have only bought 4 comic books. There wasn't a whole lot that came out in that time that I was interested in. I actually read this one last Friday, but I haven't had much time to write anything. So, forgive me, but this review is not going to have much info related to plot - because I can't remember much about it.
Basically, Spidey battles that guy on the cover in a charity wrestling match that was set up by J. Jonah Jameson as a favor to the masked wrassler. The majority of the issue focuses on the fight and is relatively boring because when reading a 40+ year old title about a character that has been around that long, there is little room for anyone to believe that any fight will end with Spidey losing. I will say that if you are not a fan of the bone claws, this issue will likely further annoy you.
Wieringo's artwork is good. I must say that I am really enjoying that aspect of this title a lot. I didn't find this issue very entertaining. It would have been better served by focusing less on the fight and more on the character, but those aren't decisions I get to make. All in all this one was a letdown.
My Verdict: 5/10
