The Amazing Spiderman: Ends of the Earth-The World in the Tentacles of Doc Ock

Hey there InfiKnights, Hector here. Well, it's that time of the month where we celebrate the 50th year of our favorite wall crawling, web swinging wonder. With every month bring us a different peek into the world of Spiderman and this month is no different. For June, I've decided to take a look into Peter's most recent adventures.

 In the latest storyline, 'Ends of the Earth', Doctor Octopus has created a way to either intensify the sun's rays or strengthen the ozone layer. Octavius claims if the world follows his orders, he would intensify the ozone layer before he dies. But if they refuse, he'd kill them all. Spidey is, of course, suspicious and with good reason because he (Doctor Octopus) never planned on saving anyone. After a lot of insanity, including  Ock taking control of the Avengers, he is stopped.

I loved this book! I can find nothing wrong with it. The writing was great. I loved the story. Dan Slott is doing a great job, like he did with Spider-Island and this is no different. You see a new confidence in Peter he's really making a difference and he's really growing as a person as well as a hero. The art is also great, perfect balance of art and realism that I enjoy. Kudos to Stefano Caselli and Humberto Ramos.Their art perfectly compliments the story. With that said, I've decided that this storyline gets a rating I've only ever given once before. That's right folks the coveted Bruce Wayne Batman (5 out or 5). Great job Slott and crew. And till next time InfiKnights, Keep Slinging!
