Comic Book Review: Spider-Man #7 - Marvel Comics (2016)

Miles Morales is having a hard time sleeping as he isn't sure if he should take up the fight in Civil War II.  Miles' mom is also having a hard time sleeping as she wants to know what private investigator Jessica Jones has found out about her son.

Things have definitely gotten interesting for the younger Spider-Man as he struggles to figure out if he should join the fight or not.  It's even more difficult when you have seen a glimpse of the future and find out the Hulk may be coming after you(not sure if it's the Totally Awesome version or not, I didn't notice an early 2000s faux-hawk).

I like the direction of this comic book series, even if some of the references that are to be made by teenagers are a bit dated(the future's so bright, gotta wear shades - way to stay with the times).  Spider-Man's inner struggle is well done and well thought out.  He knows what he thinks is right but it is still out of his comfort zone.  Heroes are going to be fighting heroes and that can't be high on a young crime-fighter's list of things to do.

Spider-Man's mom is getting awfully close to finding out who he is.  I'd prefer that to not happen as I like the struggle of keeping a secret identity.  His father knows and I like seeing that dynamic at home.

Spider-Man is a good series.  Sure you have to get past some of the dialogue that doesn't seem very natural but the overall story is good and is heading into interesting directions.
