Review: The Amazing Spider-Man #8, Black Cat returns


This month’s issue of The Amazing Spider-Man introduced a new threat, but also brought back an old foe, Black Cat. Keep reading for the review, which I’ll try to keep as spoiler-free as possible.

The huge comic event, Spider-Geddon, is going on right now in every Spider-Man comic. Spider-Gwen has a tie-in, Spectacular Spider-Man has a tie-in, and there are even tons of new runs like Spider-Girls or Edge of Spider-Geddon. So, it would make perfect sense for this issue to tie into the Spider-Verse sequel as well, right?

Well, even if it does make sense, this issue has nothing to do with Spider-Geddon. Instead, The Amazing Spider-Man # 8 introduces yet another foe group for Peter to face, while also bring back a certain feline.


After several weeks of Peter Parker-based stories, the series returns to its usual Spidey caper. It’s your usual Spider-Man story, with a villain-of-the-arc being introduced, Peter having to run off from a loved one to change into Spider-Man and a past decision coming back to haunt him. And while there was no mention of the mystery villain that has been popping up in recent issues of the run, the Thieves Guild of New York(the baddies for now) have already proven to be a pretty tough threat for not just Spidey, but the rest of the heroes of New York too.

This all culminates to a reunion of Peter and Felicia Hardy, the Black Cat. Although, this “reunion” may or may not go the way you’d think it would. I don’t want to spoil much, and there really isn’t much to spoil about this, but let’s just say that Black Cat isn’t thrilled to see the wall crawler.

This was a fairly good issue in my opinion. The action was balanced out, and you can’t really go wrong with a good old-fashioned cliffhanger. While I had no problem with the plot or pace of the story, I am not really a fan of the art style used this time around. The first story arc had a classic, bright, and unique vibe to it. But, this one has more of a dark, sloppy feel to it.

I did, however, also enjoy the many cameos from Dr. Strange to Captain America. I’m wondering if they are going to be featured in the next issue a lot, or if this will be just more of Spidey’s fight. I guess it won’t be too long until we find out.
