There are some blips in this fifth issue, but the lion’s share of Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow is a nervy, eerie book that may be the best horror title Marvel’s published in the last five years.
I have mixed feelings about this comic book take on the life of the tragically slain Tejano singer Selena. Adults may be a bit appalled by its narrative choices; younger readers, however, might learn something new.

W.E.B. of Spider-Man #2 is a fun series that will likely please older kids and teenagers with its sprightly can-do attitude. Older collectors might not find it an essential pull, but it’s still a fun read.
WWE The New Day: Power of Positivity #1 is playful, thought-provoking character study that mixes in-storyline wrestling elements with real bits of backstory from the wrestlers involved. It’s beautifully drawn and delightfully adventuresome.

Fantastic Four: Life Story #1: The ‘60s is a warm and adventuresome celebration of Marvel’s first family – and is a worthy retelling of the team’s storied history.
Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow #2 manages to be effective without drowning its fraught character drama in too much extra storyline frippery. It’s not a perfect jaunt, but it’s still a worthwhile continuation of an incredible first issue.
