Marvel: Spider-Man/Human Torch #3

Spider-Man/Human Torch #3 (Dan Slott, Ty Templeton, and Nelson) is very funny. It’s also a better portrayal of the emotional challenges that Spider-Man faces day-to-day than any of the ongoing titles starring him. That’s part of what makes the humor so effective: the contrast. It’s necessary for Spider-Man to have some happiness somewhere to allow him (and the reader) to put up with everything else on his shoulders.

He’s not the only character that’s better here. Both the Human Torch and Reed Richards are more interesting than I’ve seen them elsewhere. The art’s simply terrific, faithful to the past but active and easy to read. The dot-pattern backgrounds, like old printing, give the panels an out-of-time feel.

I never saw the original appearance of the Spider-Mobile or the Red Ghost and his Super Apes, but just saying their names makes me smile. This is a use of comic history I can really get behind: for enjoyment. I had to ask about Johnny Storm’s red outfit, because it looks like a set of kids’ pajamas, but apparently that’s authentic as well. Hey, entertaining AND educational!comicsworthreading.com
