Continuing where we left off from the first issue of the Spectacular Spider-Girl
, Gwen Reilly is dead.
The two big questions are who was she and who killed her? Mayday questions April but she denies killing her only to have both May and April's spider-sense go off. That prompts them to check the roofs but who or what that cause the tingle is gone.
If that weren't bad enough, the spider tracer left on Gwen's body is now log into evidence and Phil Urich has gotten a quick match on Gwen's prints, saying Peter is going to freak the minute he sees the report.
Mayday, investigating the murder, enlists the help of Darkdevil. She informs him about Gwen Reilly, leading to an nice exhange with Darkdevil telling May that her father doesn't know 'everything'
Now, from the first issue of SSG, I wanted Darkdevil to get involve because the storyline relates to his father and with the possilibity of Reilly finally coming out of the shadows to reveal himself to the Parker Family that he is Ben Reilly's son.
Now, Mayday, where do we start with you........you have to investigate the murder of a girl who claims to be your Uncle's daughter, you have your possible clone to content with and you forgot to meet up with Wes. It just doesn't get easier for May.
April, again continues to be a breath of fresh air in this series. She obviously takes after MJ, being the party girl who is looking for fun, and she also waltzes off with Wes.
Other developments are the gang war between the Black Tarantula and Silverback. The Tarantula and Arana share a very good scene together with Chesbro leaving a file for BT that hinted of a old villain who appears in the cliffhanger of this issue. His animated incarnation in Spectacular Spider-Man
made a big impact in that respective medium and Silverback enlists his services in his war with the Black Tarantula.
The mystery whereabouts of Fury the Goblin
Queen continue and we see Rene(Goblin groupie) dropping off a student to Midtown High, so the seeds are planted for a little more high school drama for May.
Overall, 16 pages with alot of developments across the board. Now, how long do we have to wait for issue 3?
