The Rundown: Peter will seek some supernatural help when Kindred finally reveals himself.
Kindred is ready to begin the next part of his plan and it will include bringing back some familiar faces from Peter’s past. Spider-Man is dealing with some issues as well and those issues have him in some physical and psychological pain. So what does he do? He goes to see the doctor. Peter limps his way to the home of Doctor Strange to seek help for his injuries as well as the supernatural threat that has him on the run.
A supernatural threat in the form of his friends.
At the same time, Norman Osborn is confronted by Sin Eater. In the aftermath, Sin Eater is confronted by Kindred who is no longer in need of his services as Osborn finds himself a changed man who knows exactly who Kindred is and, more importantly, what he wants.
The Story: There was never really much doubt who Kindred was if you followed the clues Nick Spencer has laid out in the series up to this point, but the reveal is still handled really well. The immediacy of the threat is handled perfectly in the pace and tone of the story and Kindred’s plan is dark and engaging. I’m excited to see where this story goes next.
The Art: Patrick Gleason does some great work with the art in this issue. The imagery is bold, vibrant and full of action. A great looking issue from start to finish.
