The Rundown: Miles meets a friend to catch up, but responsibility gets in the way.
Miles finds himself with some rare downtime in the wake of two personal and world shaking events. Downtime that finally allows the teen to get back to being a teenager and that means meeting a friend to hang out. When that friend, aka Kamala Khan show up, the two find themselves finally able to let off some steam and hang out as friends. When someone calls for help, the heroes launch into action to rescue people from a crumbling building.
In the aftermath, Miles wonders if what they do is enough and the two go on the hunt for the person responsible for what happened to the tenants. After getting some personal satisfaction, Miles will discover that things have been going on behind the scenes that have a direct connection to the young hero.
The Story: Ahmed strikes the right tone with this story. It has the perfect level of fun and adventure and I love the evolution of the character over the last few arcs. There is some great character development throughout and the plot does a great job of showing different sides to Miles’ personality as well as his internal conflicts. The twist at the end of the story is a great lead in to the next arc and I look forward to it.
The Art: Carnero delivers some stunning art throughout the issue. There are great action and character moments as well as beautiful details throughout each page and panel.
