Peter Parker may be at the center of the Clone Conspiracy storm, but Cindy Moon/Silk is getting plenty of blowback from it, as well—including her reanimated and soon-to-be zombified boyfriend.

Observations

  • To be fair, I have a similar reaction to nails on a chalkboard, too.
  • Ugh. Watching Jonah and Marla go through this again is rough 🙁
  • Mattie’s handling this a lot better than I would.
  • Oh, cmon…
  • This would be a perfect time for Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On” to start playing.
  • Even more dustpans will be required.
  • So…she was wearing that under her clothes the whole time?

The Verdict

Okay, I get that someone who used to be a ghost—and then got reanimated into a corporeal form—isn’t going to play the same life/death rules as everyone else. That being said, there’s a sequence involving Hector that almost made my eyes roll out of my head.

There’s also a pretty contrived moment with Mattie, which is a shame since I’d really enjoyed the way Robbie Thompson had written her thus far.

Otherwise, this is a fairly enjoyable issue, though not as good as what we’re used to getting from the title. Irene Strychalski’s art is a bit stilted at times, but always looks great—especially in the final few pages. And Thompson always gives Cindy Moon a great voice. As good as Clone Conspiracy has been, I think Silk is the type of book that operates better on its own rather than tied into a major event…and without any stupid ghost tricks.
