Superior Spider-Man #27 Review

Superior Spider-Man #27 - Page 1Writer: Dan Slott

Artist: Giuseppe Camuncoli

Colorist: Antonio Fabela


The Superior Spider-man is faced with a city overrun by goblins that he foolishly let get out of control. Meanwhile, inside the mind of Octavius, Peter lives on by the few memories left and tries to devise a new plan to regain his life.

The Ups: This issue shows a new side of Otto that both the writer, Dan Slott, and maybe even Octavius himself rarely ever show, his vulnerable side. Throughout the entire series Spider-man is portrayed as being high and mighty and always ten steps of ahead of his opponents and it is both refreshing and humanizes him that he is outsmarted by someone else that he never would have expected. The subtle nuances in the art that help to enhance the scenes and intensify the feeling the artist Giuseppe Camuncoli wishes to convey the us, the readers. The sheer fact that everything throughout the series has been a list of culminating events that lead up to what seems to be an exciting climax and that in itself is almost too staggering to believe.

Superior Spider-Man #27 - Page 5The Downs: The only downside i can see to this book is the penultimate ending of the book is quite predictable but other than that everything is all good.

Overall: Despite the fact that the penultimate event of the book is slightly predictable by the time it happens it is quickly rectified directly after in a grandiose way that literally makes us say: “whoa”.  In addition, throughout the entire book Otto’s displaced attitude is fun to see and read as he squirms and slowly wriggles his way out this situation that has left him wide open. This story arc (if its the last one for ol’ Octavius) is already shaping out to be a great story.
