Watch out, bad-guys! There’s a new vigilante in town. Not to be confused with Spider-Man, Spider is ex-military, current-rich guy with access to plenty of resources, as well as friends in both law-enforcement and the media. His ex, the media, her current husband, the law-enforcement.
Issue #1 of the new title from Dynamite Entertainment, Spider, introduces readers to Richard Wentworth, AKA Spider, as he uses any means necessary to battle everything from sex-traffickers to purse thieves, as well as his own demons (in particular, one in a bottle and one in a skirt). It is an interesting start, with the kind of art I do not particularly enjoy – looks a bit too CGI, too little actual drawing – but that serves the story well-enough. If you’re into vigilantes with complicated pasts, it is certainly worth checking out.
