Being teenage superheroes ain’t easy, especially when you have great power and responsibilities.

Peter, Gwen, and Miles embark on a new adventure having completed their internships at the Daily Bugle. But all isn’t as rosy as it seems as the Shocker attacks New York City! Who is the Shocker? And what does he want? Can the Spider Trio solve this mystery in time before their curfew!?

Easton does a great job writing the Spider Trinity in a manner that works so well for this series. And given that this series is an amalgamation of Spider-Man’s history all wrapped up in an all-ages series, that provides a new take on the mythos. The chemistry between Peter, Gwen and Miles as a trio is handled well under Easton as he showcases their different personalities and how they work together as they struggle against protecting the city from the Shocker. Easton provides the right amount of action and charisma that makes this a Spider-Man title that is worth picking up for someone that wants to get into comics, and Spider-Man.

Man, It’s crazy that for this series, Fico Ossio really gives his all in regards to the art! The amount of detail and effort to make this all-ages series look so good is something that should be commended. Ossio’s art is the kind of style that is perfectly suited for this title or any other Spider-Man title, providing the right kind of dynamic flair, Kineticism, and power that a Spider-Man title should always have. In light of recent events, with the current epidemic and self-quarantine, if possible, be sure to pick this issue up. I recommend picking this issue up for new comic book day. It’s a good book to pick up for kids and families alike, and it’ll lift your spirits
despite these trying times.
