The Story

Wells continues to tease readers with what happened prior to the first issue of his run by dropping even more hints throughout The Amazing Spider-Man #7.  It was nice to see characters such as Tiana Toomes, a.k.a. Starling, introduced in Miles Morales: Spider-Man and Kamala Khan, a.k.a. Ms. Marvel, make appearance, even in small roles.

After a great arc that dug into the character of Tombstone, readers will be excited to see that the main villain of the second arc seems to be Vulture.  After getting some depth through the addition of his granddaughter, it will be interesting to see what Wells decides to do with the character, especially after that emotional opening scene.

Meanwhile, Peter might be joining OsCorp, because nothing ever bad happens when Peter gets involved with one of the Osborns, especially Norman.   However, through the interactions during the tour of the new lab, Peter joining OsCorp could lead to some great interactions with other characters.  All in all, it looks to be a great start to the second arc.


The Art

John Romita Jr., Scott Hanna, and Marcio Menyz are back as the art team in The Amazing Spider-Man #7.  After being treated to Ed McGuinness’ pencils in the last issue, readers may be disappointed to see the return of Romita Jr.  While the overall style of the art works, it’s far from the best in the industry and Romita Jr.’s faces leave a lot to be desired.  On inks, Hanna adds significant depth to the art and helps to elevate what Romita Jr provides.  Of the art team, Menyz is the highlight, the colors help to give feeling and emotion to the line work and a special call out to an absolutely beautiful sunset in the later pages of this issue.

Final Thoughts

Coming back after the anniversary issue, Amazing Spider-Man #7 offers up more hints about what happened prior to the first issue and kicks off the new arc with a bang.
