This is a tough issue. And by tough I mean it hits emotionally. We’ve seen issues where heroes family members die, but I can’t remember an issue that dealt with it the way this one does.

Tobin does an incredible job of showing all sides of it as Spider-Girl discovers her dad’s death and confronts the Red Hulk who seems to have accidently been the killer. The Spider-Girl tweeting is a bit much as the tense is different from the time, it seems to be tweeting from the future. But her reactions are well done. From her fighting then turning and crouching over her dad, well done. Running from the Red Hulk then turning and fighting. And even the part at the end, her reactions to the death’s aftermath and talking with her friends.

Only thing though, wouldn’t the FF have been at the funeral? Wouldn’t there have been more people? The official reported for the FF should have generated more attendance.

Tobin’s making a good book. Light and fun, but emotional when needs to be. This issue was no exception.

Henry’s art is great. He perfectly captures the spirit and essence of Spider Girl. The fight scenes are dynamic and exciting. It would have been nice to see him do the entire issue and not the fill-ins on the funeral scenes. Would have been nice to see Henry handle the really emotional scenes.

Heavy hitting emotional issue that is very well written.
