Miles is a thirteen year old who just wants to work hard, get into a good school, and make his parents proud. But then he's bitten by one of Oscorp's test spiders and gets his own spate of spider-based powers, many of them similar to Peter Parker's. After Peter is killed, Miles takes up the mantle of Spider-Man. He has both the usual problems that Spider-Man has (having to juggle a double life, coming from an underprivileged family, escaping from cops who aren't happy with vigilantes, fights with criminals) and new problems (like the fact that most of the public thinks wearing Spider-man's mask is in poor taste, or that his own uncle is blackmailing him). There are moments of exhilaration, friendship, bravery, and grief. I came away from this collection absolutely adoring Miles, who has such a good heart and such bad luck that I wanted to wrap him in blankets and feed him hot cocoa. And I loved the art, which is fantastic at conveying both facial expressions and fight scenes--a rare combination. ( )
