Superior Spider-Man #1

Writer: Dan Slott
Artist: Ryan Stegman

It's the start of a new life for the man who everyone believes is their favorite web-crawler. The Superior Spider-Man makes his debut fighting a new incarnation of the Sinister Six, and soon, his new attitude comes to the surface. The issue mostly focuses on the intellectual aspect of the character, and how it will help him in his mission to become indeed a superior version of the man (men?) he used to be. While the tone of the story reflects the angry and resentful personality of Otto Octavius, the playful presence of the original Spidey is felt in the book, not just through the plot, but also the artwork. Speaking of, rising super star Ryan Stegman brings his "A" game to the title; although I prefer his style in Scarlet Spider, it is undeniable that the amount of detail in his panels is exquisite. Those who are still uneasy about how things ended in ASM #700, will feel much relief and understand the journey that here begins after reading the last page of the issue.
