Review by Library Journal Reviews

In the alternative universe of the "Ultimate Spider-Man" series, Spider-Man Peter Parker is killed. The sequel series "Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man" introduces 13-year-old Miles Morales, an African American/Hispanic youngster who reluctantly steps into the webslinger's shoes after being bitten by an experimentally altered spider himself. This Spider-Men stand-alone begins when the villain Mysterio accidentally sends the Peter Parker from the main Marvel universe through an interdimensional portal to Miles's universe. There the two Spider-Men must work together to fight Mysterio, close the portal, and send Peter back home. Bendis's lively writing and Pichelli's fluid, realist art keep the story engaging. See also "Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man," a new series from Bendis and various artists that follows "Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man." For teens and up. (c) Copyright 2015.
