A fun and entertaining adventure, Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1 (Marvel Comics/IDW Publishing) captures the adolescent vibe and exciting energy of a superhero-in-training. Readers will definitely enjoy the promise of more costumed crusaders to come in the series.

Peter Parker has thrown down with deadly villains and legendary heroes, but high school life might be his greatest challenge yet. Luckily, he has a shot at making the grade with a little help from his new friends… Miles Morales and Gwen Stacy!

Here are 5 reasons you should get Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1:

5) The Spider-Verse!

Who isn’t a huge fan of Spider-Man? I love that Miles Morales, Gwen Stacy, and Peter Parker are in the same universe in this reboot; so we’re not dimension-jumping. The trio share the same age, as if they’re all learning how to be heroes at the same time.

4) The Writing!

I love that writer Delilah S. Dawson is diving into journalism, which is a modern reflection of our divisive time. There is no better representation for the search for the truth than Spidey regular, Robbie Robertson. Letterer Shawn Lee captures the rambling internal thoughts and snappy dialogue of an energetic and naive teenager.

3) The Art!

Artist Fico Ossio captures a lively and vibrant cityscape in the backgrounds. Ossio illustrates the tall buildings and streets of the Big Apple with such exuberance. It’s such an immense thrill seeing Spider-Man web-swinging through city during the daytime.

2) The Colors!

The red tone of Spider-Man’s bounces off the page thanks to colorist Ronda Pattison. The white tones of Spider-Man’s eyes add to the expressiveness. The mutated rats and dogs are a blend of gray and greenish colors.

1) A Fun Read!

The perfect introduction for new readers, Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1 is such a colorful and fun adventure! This first installment will surely make a Spidey fan out of anyone!
