Into the Spider-Verse for thrills


Spider-Man: Homecoming did an excellent job at shaking this up, annoying some and thrilling most. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse has taken this concept to a whole other “dimension.” Yes, multiple Spider-Men means even more references and Easter eggs than ever before and from even more obscure corners of the Spider-Man. But in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse this comic book styling is nothing short of a revelation as if all along this is how these movies should have looked. Here we’ve got word balloons, thought bubbles, panelling, and so much more. Of special note is Miles’ admission, after he gets bit by the spider, that he can see his internal thoughts as narration blocks and that he’s become very stuck in his own head. In Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Alchemax matches a lot of Slott’s characterization and lays the seeds for Spider-Man 2099’s inclusion into this series.
