The Rundown: Spider-Man discovers the truth about his so-called sidekick.
Peter has finally tracked down Bailey aka Spider-Boy and given the kid who calls himself Spidey’s sidekick the chance to tell him the truth. Bailey lays out a fantastic story that includes Peter taking him to train with Daredevil to control his powers, visiting the Fantastic Four for his uniform and more.
As Peter learns more about the kid, he continues to deny that he would put a kid in harms way even when Bailey reveals the moment Peter decided to fully trust him. As he continues his story, Bailey’s spider-sense warns them of impending danger.
The Story: Slott does a great job of laying out Spider-Boy’s past with Spider-Man while keeping the truth as an interesting tease to explore later. I like the lighter tone of this story and how the characters banter with each other. The story has a fun and engaging vibe to it and I really like how it seems to be building to a bigger and darker turn to come for the characters.
The Art: Vecchio delivers awesome art throughout the issue. I love the bright tone of the art and how it reflects the lighter tone of the story.
