Spider-Punk #2 is the second issue of a new Marvel comics series following Hobie Brown, aka Spider-Punk. On Earth-138, Hobie and his band of heroes are part of the revolution to take down villains like Norman Osborn. Osborn was the President of the United States, when Spider-Punk crushed his skull with his guitar. Osborn is dead, but does that mean the Spider-band is done?
You guessed right. Their work is never done. Well, at least not yet it isn’t. Taskmaster finds the Spider-band, along with Kraven, and they are hoping to make quick work of these heroes. Thankfully, Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel, is here to save the day. With Kamala’s help, the spider-band defeats Kraven and Taskmaster, who both take off. Before they go, they mention that the Spider base is sitting on top of an Osborn black site. An explosion exposes the black site, and the crew gets to work.
They figure out that Osborn has sites like this all over the east coast, and to get to the bottom of it, they will have to go on tour. They were hoping that taking out Osborn would be the end of their revolution, and they could get to live normal lives, but Osborn kept contingencies in place so people like him would stay in power even after he’s gone.
The crew is ready to head to Washington, D.C. The hint at the next issue is one word, “Kingpin.” It looks like the Spider-band is in for a new fight once they get to D.C. Spider-Punk is a great new series to try out if you’re interested in a Spider-Man comic but don’t know where to jump into the main Spider-Man stories. Writer Cody Ziglar, Artist Justin Mason, Color Artist Jim Charalampidis, and Letterer Travis Lanham bring punk to life with bright colors, bold designs, and a story that is ready to leap from the page.
