The Avenging Spider-Man #2 Review

Last month, when Avenging Spider-Man debuted, I couldn't help but be a little disappointed. The art was fantastic, the writing was good but the lack of a decent story seemed to weigh it down.
So, has the story improved this month? A little.

This month sees the story of Spidey and Red Hulk continue as they make their way through Subterranea, trying to find the cause of the Moloid invasion on the surface.
This issue does seem to have more of a plot, but the story still doesn't seem very deep or interesting. Plus, we still know little about what is really going on, and when your story isn't even very interesting, that's not a good thing.

But, I shouldn't be too harsh. The story is an improvement over what we got in #1, even if it's still a little underwhelming.

Thankfully, Joe Madureira's art remains beautiful meaning the book remains a joy to look at! I can't help but think how much worse the book would be without it.
The writing also remains strong, although isn't quite as good as last month's. I think it too is weighed down by the limitatins of the story.

There's not much more to say about Avenging Spider-Man. It's a book that's still suffering from a mediocre story - and no amount of great art and writing is going to fix that. #2 is worth a shot, but I think this story needs to move on quickly, or Avenging Spider-Man is going to become very forgettable.
