About the Author

Taylor, a prolific dramatist, was the editor of Punch from 1874 to 1880. He was educated at Glasgow University, where he distinguished himself as a student; later he studied at Trinity College, Cambridge, and served for two years as a professor of English at University College, London. When Taylor mostrar mais settled in London, he worked for both the Morning Chronicle and The Daily News. Despite his journalism, however, he is best remembered as the author of more than 100 plays over a 35-year span. While few survive as outstanding literary achievements, Taylor was immensely successful in his own day, and apparently only one of his plays was an outright failure. In 1871 the playwright was accused by the Atheneum of plagiarizing most of his works---a common practice in the early-nineteenth-century theater but less savory during the later Victorian years. Only one-tenth of his plays were adaptations, he replied; the rest were original. Indeed, some of the most popular plays were adaptations of works by Victor Hugo and Charles Dickens. The most successful plays were the domestic comedies Our American Cousin (1858) and The Ticket-of-Leave Man (1863). Our American Cousin is memorable as the play that was being performed at Ford's Theater in Washington the night that Abraham Lincoln was assassinated. Taylor is also notable for his collaboration with the novelist Charles Reade on a number of historical dramas, the most famous of which is Two Loves and a Life.

Die Comic-Abenteuer der Heldin aus dem preisgekrönten Animationsfilm Spider-Man: A New Universe! Eigentlich ist Gwen Stacy die junge netzschwingende Heldin Spider-Woman. Doch sie hat ihre Kräfte verloren. Ausgerechnet jetzt will sie der brutale Polizist Frank Castle zur Strecke bringen. Dazu hetzt er Gwen sogar den Jäger Kraven und dessen Bestien auf den Hals. Es scheint, als sei ihre einzige Rettung, einen Pakt mit Matt Murdock zu schließen, der in ihrer Welt aber ein teuflischer Krimineller ist. Die rasanten Comics, die Gwen Stacy als Wandkrabblerin zum Fan-Liebling und zur neuen Marvel-Ikone machten!
Frank Castle jagt Gwen Stacy!
Die Netzschwingerin, die in Rekordzeit ein multimedialer Fanliebling wurde.

Brutal, horrific, and sad with a tinge of hope at the end. Read this is you need something to help manage your COVID-19 fears (that is if reading the DC universe version of The Stand sounds like a good coping mechanism to you).

Super dark, really good DC (standard) art. Kinda disappointed that I thought the whole premise was that Batman and Superman were dead, but they're both in the story (kinda). I feel like if I was a writer for DC I would definitely want to write for Earth 2 since you can do whatever you want without messing up the continuity of the regular characters.

Peter Parker's Aunt May is going through a lot -- she has a cancer diagnosis and her new shelter to help unhoused people is burgled on its opening day. Can Spider-Man discover the culprit and right this wrong before it's too late?

So, I didn't realize this was a volume 2 (collecting issues #7-#14) until I was already reading it. It definitely assumes you know some back story already, but I felt I was fine enough forging ahead without having all the full details. Like with so much of Marvel properties these days, there's a smattering of characters and plotlines from all over the place anyway.

The first few issues deal with the same storyline arc. Hobie Brown's Prowler has donned the costume again, but this time for noble reasons -- to find out how a crowdfunding charity is somehow not benefiting any of its supposed recipients. After this, we have a story of Mary Jane's day protecting Peter by standing up to a troll, a couple of issues about Peter needing to fight off the dictator of a literal underworld beneath the surface of the Earth, and a final issue in which Spider-Man's pals help save the city so he can spend the night at the hospital with Aunt May.

As mentioned above, this slim volume is chock full of various friends and foes of Spider-Man, whether a passing reference is made during dialogue or the character plays a big role in the story. This includes, but is not limited to, Captain America, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Jessica Jones, Kingpin, Luke Cage, and Miles Morales. For folks who love crossovers, this is the stuff of dreams. For readers like me who prefer more self-contained stories, it's more so-so.

However, I did love the usual quips and humor found in a Spider-Man story. It did hit some heavy topics (exorbitant medical costs, homelessness, etc.) so that there's some meat behind the levity, but not so much that it becomes depressing. Overall, it's a fast, fun, and entertaining read -- perfect for when you're looking for something quick and satisfying.
