Matt Kindt and Marco Rudy are delivering a great and different Spider-Man story. For as long as Spidey's been in action, we've seen pretty much every scenario he could get in. Having to fight pretty much all his enemies and with the visuals Rudy throws in, this is a fight unlike any we've seen before.
It's almost hard to tell who's having more fun with this series. Kindt gets to come up with several different scenarios for Spidey to face his foes. Rudy mixes up the style and you really have to stop at each page and take in all the detail. The variety of the style matches the state of Spidey's mind. He believes he's been drugged by Arcade and that very well may be the case. Seeing the different styles meshed together on a single page may be a little distracting for some but, visually, it stands out from other adventures. It truly illustrates what we can assume is going on in Spider-Man's head.
Apart from the visual feast, we really get to see what makes Spider-Man the great hero he is. The odds are incredibly stacked against him and of course he's going to fight with every ounce of strength and determination he can call forth. And throughout all this, there is still the bigger mystery of who exactly is behind all of this.
This may not be your typical Spider-Man story. That's what I'm digging about this. That being said, it might be too abstract for some.
This is a great use of the Marvel Knights imprint. We get a slightly darker story presented with a great variety of art style. Matt Kindt has placed Spider-Man in an interesting situation, forced to face numerous enemies while Marco Rudy provides the art in a way we really haven't seen before in a Spider-Man comic. If you've been missing Peter Parker or just want to see a story that doesn't have to be tied to the current continuity, this is a great story to check out. You'll be blown away by the visuals and get to witness Spider-Man fight like he's never fought before.
