Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #17 Review


UNITED WE STAND!

With the nation at war, young Spider-Man heeds the call of Super Hero duty!

The secret connection between Miles Morales and Spider-Woman revealed?

Cover/Solicit - 4/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/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 - 4/5

- 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 - 5/5

- 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 - 4.7

- I'm shocked others didn't like this issue. I really enjoyed the story, the art was great and I felt it expanded on Miles Morales as a character. This issue we see what occurred during United We Stand while Captain America is battling HYDRA in Montana. This issue does a good job of showing how inexperienced Miles is compared to Spider-Woman and the Ultimates. The solicit gives the impression that the secret relation between Spider-Woman and Miles might be revealed, but unfortunately they are interrupted before anything can be learned. At the end of the battle we find Miles where the issue started stranded in a field in the Montana farmland. Although really just a filler issue to tie-in with the crossover, I still found it enjoyable.
