The Amazing Spider-Man #698 - Dying Wish Prelude: Day in the Life Review

The Amazing Spider-Man #698

Cover - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 5/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 5/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 4/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 4.4

- With only a few issues left of The Amazing Spider-Man we get a prelude of things to come with Dying Wish. I'm not sure why but the cover for this issue is just creepy, not sure if it's the art style or just a wrinkled up Doctor Octopus. I'm glad to see the art return, unlike The Amazing Spider-Man #697 - Danger Zone, Part Three: War of the Goblins, I actually enjoyed it. As for the story, I just don't know. It seems like they could have done a lot more with it. At the start you see Octavius on The Raft mumbling Peter Parker. We then switch to Pete doing normal day to day things, and thinking about his life. Peter is eventually taken to the Raft by the Avengers where all is revealed. This makes the start of the issue make a little more sense but not entirely. I'd assume the next two issues will explain how all this happened but it seems confusing at first. It also makes you think about prior appearances of Spider-Man and who is who. I hope the next two issues clear things up because right now I'm confused.
