DYLAN BROCK, A.K.A. VENOM, has a bone…or a brain…to pick with MILES MORALES! With MILES MORALES: SPIDER-MAN scribe CODY ZIGLAR teaming up with IBAN COELLO (VENOM, FANTASTIC FOUR), and with a cover by the legendary BRYAN HITCH, this is a GIANT-SIZED spidey story that can’t be missed! And this is just the first of more exciting GIANT-SIZE one-shots featuring your favorite characters releasing through the first half of this year! PLUS: Includes a reprinting of ULTIMATE COMICS: SPIDER-MAN #22 by Spidey-legends Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli featuring the epic conclusion of Miles’ first battle with Ultimate Venom!
Giant-Size Spider-Man #1 is a thrilling and action-packed one shot comic book that delivers on its promise of a spectacular showdown between Spider-Man and Venom. The story by Cody Ziglar is fast-paced and full of twists and turns, as Dylan Brock, the son of Eddie Brock and the host of a new Venom symbiote, targets Miles Morales, the young Spider-Man of the Ultimate Universe. Ziglar captures the voices and personalities of both heroes and villains, and explores the themes of family, legacy, and responsibility that are at the core of Spider-Man’s mythos.
The art by Iban Coello is stunning and dynamic, showcasing the fluidity and power of the symbiotes, as well as the agility and grace of Spider-Man. Coello’s detailed and expressive facial expressions convey the emotions and motivations of the characters, while the vibrant and contrasting colors by Guru-eFX create a striking visual contrast between the black and white of Venom and the black and red of Miles’ Spider-Man costume. The cover by Bryan Hitch is a masterpiece of composition and perspective, depicting the epic scale and intensity of the battle between the two iconic characters.
Giant-Size Spider-Man #1 also includes a bonus reprint of ULTIMATE COMICS: SPIDER-MAN #22, the final chapter of the first arc of Miles Morales’ solo series, written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Sara Pichelli. This classic issue features the dramatic and emotional conclusion of Miles’ first encounter with Ultimate Venom, as well as the introduction of a new supporting character that will change Miles’ life forever.
This one shot is a must-read for any fan of Spider-Man, Venom, or Marvel Comics in general. It is a perfect example of how to craft a compelling and satisfying one-shot story that showcases the best of the characters and the creators. It is a giant-sized dose of fun, excitement, and adventure that will leave you wanting more. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves comic books.
