Unfortunately things get ruined per usual. Pulling in the All New, All Different Avengers, Iron Man, MJ and others, we see Pete take on a "villain" so focused on righting the wrongs of a world run by super heroes.
Sadly, we have seen this story play out before countless times. The fight scenes were a tad boring and I wish we got to see more of the Tony Stark/Peter Parker/MJ tension. Those scenes were clearly the best. Regent seemed like a Kirby-esque looking villain and not that interesting.
Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide Vol. 5 (Spider-Man - Amazing Spider-Man)
Amazing Spider-Man: Worldwide Vol. 6
Volume 5, as you will see below, is an incomplete collection of the latest Clone Saga, while volume 6 is a superb story involving Norman Osborn.
Spider-Man - Worldwide 5 (3-stars) collects issues #20-24 and Annual #1 of the post-Secret Wars Spider-Man series. The story running through the main issues is half of the “Dead No More” storyline that begins and ends in the “Clone Conspiracy” volume, containing “The Cone Conspiracy” #1-5, and “The Clone Conspiracy Omega” #1.
I would recommend, unless you are a completist, to skip this volume and get the Panini collection - Amazing Spider-Man: Dead No More, which collects the entire storyline apart from the Annual in this volume.
The Annual has a horribly cartoony lead story - which may be setting up a future storyline, and reminded me of some of the Ditko (and subsequent) Doctor Strange team-ups, which might be where it is going – but really is turned into almost a kids cartoon by the artwork.
There are two shorter stories, one following up on Cloak and Dagger and their previous story set in China, and another short written by an American comedian I’ve never heard of, but obviously is a celebrity of some sort. These stories might be giving the artists a try out and exposing them to a wider audience, and I would vote 1 miss and two hits.
Back to the Clone Conspiracy: I gave the Panini collection a 5-star review. It is a superb epic Spider-Man story that lives up to the blurbs and publicity. Unfortunately, you can’t read it in this volume.
I read local library copies of this volume and the Panini one. If you must buy this one then don’t read it straight away, but go to your library and get the Panini volume and read that first. You won’t be disappointed.
Spider-Man - Worldwide 6 – The Osborn Identity (5-stars) collects issues #25-28 of this rapidly accelerating title, along with 39 pages of short stories from the extra-sized #25. The short stories are stuck at the back, but I recommend reading them first, as there is a bridging story from the Clone Conspiracy that explains why there is a new [spoiler] shouting at the TV whenever there is bad news about Parker Industries (which is now very often).
Anyway, following an ‘anonymous’ tip (Amazing Spider-Man: Dead No More), SHIELD and Spider-Man are hunting for Norman Osborn, and find him.
Back when Otto Octavius stole Peter Parker’s body, as I keep reminding regular readers of these reviews, the question for me was “how long?” and never “how do they get out of this?”. In reviews of earlier volumes of this series, I started to ask the same question, for it seemed to me that this wasn’t really the Amazing Spider-Man anymore. Well, following the above mentioned Clone Conspiracy (and read the full story in the edition from Panini, not the Marvel one split into two books) which brought back the real Amazing Spider-Man, at least for me, we now continue with that character, as we see the long arms of the plot begin to gather together and begin to point in the same direction. This is the return of the Spider-Man who makes jokes, not the Joke Spider-Man that he has become in recent years.
This a self-contained story, so you can read it as a stand-alone action story, but there is character development and plot-development for those of us who want that sort of stuff.
The short stories from #25 are superb, every one of them; unlike the shorts from the Annual collected in the previous volume. I don’t really know what a Tsum-Tsum is, but he deserves his own back-up feature (which is where Gwenpool started), along with a regular A-may-zing Spider-Aunt cartoon.
