“Joyful” Justin Mason( Artist),

“Mighty” Morry Hollowell (Color Artist),

and VC’s “Thunderous” Travis Lanham (Letterer.)


Hobie swings into action as issue #1 thrusts us into Earth 138, where the world is in disarray after Osborn has been killed. Villains vying for new power and technology to be the next ones to run the block, but not if Spider-Punk and his Spider-Band can help it!

The Art:

This is a world I would love to live in. So much of the way this issue is drawn and colored reminds me of the days I used to spend going to underground punk rock shows in the Boston scene. Justin and Morry do a lot of really fun things with the way they brought us characters like Mz Marvel, Cap, Shuri, Daredevil, Doc Ock, and Riotheart. Their punk designs and vibe of this world really bring you into this issue and have you vibing the entire time.

The Writing:

Cody matches the vibe of this issue as the way he writes it makes this comic plain old-fashioned fun. It has an air of teenage adventure and a carefree attitude, capturing Hobie’s essence perfectly. Travis matches the overall energy with the lettering as there are a lot of cool sequences mixed into the art. They give us a quick synopsis of how he gets his powers but, then jolt us into the current world.

Every page of this issue rips, and it’s like we are teenagers having fun again. Even bringing in T’Challa and Wakanda, they have a fun feel to them, adding to our new-age Spider-Band. Perhaps the most fun is how Ock spends the whole issue talking down to a flustered Justin Hammer, a duo I never expected to get in Marvel.


Issue #1 is often the most important issue as it is what captures and brings us into the world we will be playing in. The team succeeds in sucking us in immediately and really takes me back to my teenage days. The story is full of adventure, the colors and art appease our eyes, and overall it’s a really fun issue.
