    It may be uncharitable but it's hard not to imagine the conversation going something like this: J.J. Abrams: My kid wants to write a Spider-Man comic. Marvel: Does he have any writing experience. J.J. Abrams: Ah, not as such... Marvel: Can we put your name on the book as well as his? J.J. Abrams: Sure. Marvel: SOLD!

It's also full of plot-holes and stuff that just doesn't make sense. Story: 2 stars The artwork, though, people! Wow! From Sarah Pichelli's incredible pencils to Dave Stewart's beautiful colouring, this book is a visual delight. Artwork: 5 stars I gues that evens out to 3.5 stars overall but I'm going to round down because this sure doesn't feel like a 4 star book to me. My next book: Strange Academy vol. 1: First Class

So Ben has to find Tony Stark and team up with them to rescue him and they do sorta by the end and we understand the origins of this villains, his motivesand how Stark Industries and Richard Parker is involved and "the key". It could have been done better though but ultimately in the end its an all out dragout fight but when the fight is over and all, there is such a great moment when Peter says goodbye to everyone and (spoiler) MJ returns. That whole revelation was okay. The book suffers from a major pacing problems and there are moments of dumbness where nothing much happens, explanations as to villains motives are unclear, the fight seems uninspired, characters act like they have multiple personalities. They could have done so much with the character but didn't but regardless its an okayish read. Cadaverous looks like an okayish villain but that scene with Peter in the end was heart-warming and emotional. The art in it was good all the time!

    I really wanted to like this book. Maybe as my expectations were too high which is what made this so disappointing for me. I get what Abrams was trying to do, but I don't like it. I understand Peter Parker racked with guilt, nothing new there, but Peter being a toxic, absentees father I do not buy. Peter is too obsessive for that. Then on top thus was one of the lightest book I have read action wise as well.

Though the story just did not come off for me. For what the villain was trying to achieve I really do not think Spider-man would not be the first candidate I think of. Another of the main things I did not like was the villain. When you have a 5 issue mini series it is probobly not the time to try and introduce a new villain. It would have been better to use an established villain Spider-man had some history with. Another think is I have a pet of a certain corporation always having to save Spider-man. I did not like it in the movies I don't like it here. As the interesting about most Spider-man stories these mini series, tend to turn into series. I think they can do some interesting stuff with how this finished.

    Overall, just a passable Spider-man story at best. The art alone makes it worth taking a look at. Some really cool designs and fight scenes. But the plot? Starts off interesting enough and a nice twist to have Peter's son be the main character. Not to mention I'm a sucker for "learning your powers" arc. But that quickly goes away after two issues to focus on the future avengers like people, and a boring villain with almost no real reasoning to do what he does.

    I can’t believe it took JJ Abrams and son a year to come up with this weirdly uneven story. It’s not terrible, but it peaks early and then just kind of fizzles out at the end.

    When it was announced that J.J. Abrams will be writing Spider-Man in 2019, it wasn't the first time that someone who worked on film and television made a brief transition to comics, from Kevin Smith writing Daredevil to Joss Whedon writing Astonishing X-Men. What was most off-putting about the announcement was that Abrams will be co-writing the comic with his son Henry, who hadn't done anything prior, so it was a case of nepotism. Five issues later, which were published over the course of over a When it was announced that J.J. Abrams will be writing Spider-Man in 2019, it wasn't the first time that someone who worked on film and television made a brief transition to comics, from Kevin Smith writing Daredevil to Joss Whedon writing Astonishing X-Men. What was most off-putting about the announcement was that Abrams will be co-writing the comic with his son Henry, who hadn't done anything prior, so it was a case of nepotism. Five issues later, which were published over the course of over a year, was Spider-Man: Bloodline worth it in the end? In order to explain the plot of this title, I would have to give away a big SPOILER that literally begins the first issue. After a horrifying battle against the new villain Cadaverous, not only does Peter Parker loses the lower half of his right arm, but also his wife Mary Jane. Twelve years later, Peter has become a distant father to the young Ben Parker, who starts developing spider-like powers and thus Aunt May reveals to him that his father was Spider-Man. Initially scared by this reveal, but during his friendship with his new friend Faye Ito, he learns to embrace the costume and uses his gift for good, despite the reluctance of Peter and the return of Cadaverous. After Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, I have felt some disillusionment towards J.J. Abrams, who concluded a nine-movie saga with a finale with no new ideas and nothing really to say, other than we are not defined by our bloodline, whilst continuing a hero’s legacy. The message may sound like things can move forward, but the execution is constantly harking back to things that you’ve seen before. If you’re familiar with a J.J. Abrams story, whether it is his best film Super 8 or his approach to both Trek and Wars, his protagonists are often youths who have grief and daddy issues, and Bloodline is no different. Although both father and son are grieving in their own way, Ben Parker is the main character who goes through an origin story, one of which we have seen many times in various incarnations. The front cover, which features Peter in his Spidey alongside his beloved M.J., is ultimately misleading as like I said, the story kills her off at the very beginning and falls into the trap that many superhero comics do, which is to kill a female character so that the male hero has to emote. You do get other elements from an Abrams story, such as the mystery box storytelling, which leans towards Cadaverous, a villain that starts out interesting, until the mystery starts to unravel and then the execution gets ridiculous. It is hard to say how much Henry Abrams contributed to the comic, but in the way how it depicts this dark future of the Marvel universe, it feels like a re-tread of stuff we have seen before in other Marvel titles, but in the shape of half-baked fanfiction. If there is one positive thing to say about Bloodline, is the art of Miles Morales co-creator Sara Pichelli, who visually approaches the Spidey mythos differently than before. In contrast to the clean line-work she’d done on Ultimate Spider-Man, Pichelli’s work is rougher, but there is skill in the way she draws character expressions, costume and creature designs, whilst crafting some impressive sequences. It certainly that colourist Dave Stewart adds a darker palette to Pichelli’s art that compliments to the somewhat dark presentation of the Marvel universe. As a Spidey story that attempts to add new layers, the overall direction feels so wrong from what we expect from our favourite wall-crawler, and as a dark future story of the Marvel universe, it reads like half-baked fanfiction co-written by the son of someone famous, because it was.

    Well, it appears that J.J. Abrams' son Henry has inherited his father's ability to start off a story well but has no idea how to stick the landing. This five-issue mini-series event is a bit of a disappointment on the writing side. A new villain called Cadaverous kills Mary Jane and a bunch of other superheroes, sending Peter Parker into exile.

Abrams' son Henry has inherited his father's ability to start off a story well but has no idea how to stick the landing. This five-issue mini-series event is a bit of a disappointment on the writing side. A new villain called Cadaverous kills Mary Jane and a bunch of other superheroes, sending Peter Parker into exile. A decade or so later, Peter is estranged from his fifteen-year-old son Ben and has left Ben in the hands of Aunt May as he travels the globe for the Bugle. But Ben is starting to have strange occurrences in his life, like sticking to walls and the ability to take out bullies with a single punch. Before you know it, Ben has discovered he's got Spidey powers and Cadaverous is alerted that Spider-Man is back on the scene and can be used to complete whatever the hell plan it is that Cadaverous has dreamed up. Bloodline feels like an extended mini-series based on the MCU more than the comic-book storylines surrounding Spider-Man -- and that's not a bad thing, per se. If there's one thing Into the Spider-Verse showed us, it's there can be multiple variations of Spider-Man without necessarily wrecking things. But as I started out saying, the big issue here is Henry Abrams' writing. It's all over the place, pulling in things like Tony Stark, the Avengers, and other MCU items without necessarily thinking things through. If you're all about a big reveal that doesn't require much thought or internal continuity, this is the mini-series for you. However, Spider-Man has always been about something more than just big reveal after big reveal for me -- it's about investing in the character of Peter Parker -- or whoever is taking up the Spider-Man mantle. And that's where this mini-series ultimately fails. Yes, Ben Parker is Peter and MJ's son, but beyond that, there is little or any character arc in play to give us a reason to care about. And since Peter turns into a distant father, there's little, if any reason, to invest much in him either. The story does try to go for a huge emotional twist in the final issue with mixed results. Again, I hadn't invested enough in the characters to really feel anything more than a shoulder-shrug when said reveal takes place. And the ending is all over the place. So, maybe J.J. wrote this with his son. Putting the plot aside, the artwork for this miniseries is superbly done. I grew up reading reprints of the Steve Ditko and John Romita eras, and those will always be my favorites when it comes to Spider-Man. But the art by Sara Pichelli for this mini-series event evokes the best of Ditko and Romita. It's colorful and easy to distinguish each character over the course of the five issues. There are a few striking panels in here that made me pause to just enjoy them before turning the page and continuing to roll my eyes at the plotline.

    To b honest, there’s really nothing particularly flawed in terms of writing. The story generally flows well, and we are pretty empathetic towards all the characters. The real issue for me is that it’s not really a “Spider-Man” story. It doesn’t hav any of the Spidey heart. There is only a glimmer of that “I need to be Spider-Man” that drives Peter Parker. Ben Parker does not come across as any sort of suitable replacement for Peter Parker, and he is definitely no Miles Morales.

Just because we have some big Hollywood names helming the title does not mean they truly understand the character like Bendis might understand for example. All in all, it was interesting to read, but I felt like I was reading something I would otherwise have not read. Change the names around, and it’s basically something else. Plus, it ends on some sort of hopeful future sequel thing, hich also leaves a bad taste. Whatever. It wasn’t that bad. I’m just tired of monsters and zombies I guess. Art is great tho

Here you've busted your ass for years to make it before you are possibly handed a flagship character and a young kid is given it simply because of his dad yet you've had no experience writing a comic. Ouch. Not cool Marvel. Either way, it was effective in getting peoples attention. It's a standalone which is actually nice. A lot of Spider-Man stories last for volumes. The story was simply okay. It wasn't stunning but I wouldn't call it bad either. Just your standard superhero comic book. The art was good though all throughout the story and I liked the baddies. Would I recommend it? Not necessarily. Unless you're a big superhero junkie.

    I’ve read Spider-Man: Reign. I’ve read the 90’s Clone Saga. I’ve read One More Day, One Moment In Time, and The Gauntlet. This is easily the worst Spider-Man story I’ve ever read. Uninspired, trite, very much consistently gross, and just generally unappealing are all things I would say to describe Bloodline. Aside from, maybe.... two redeeming moments, both of which occur in the final issue? Everything about this just plain blows. Except the art, I suppose; Sara Pichelli pencils a mean comic.

    I put off reading this as Abrams has proven, thus far in his career, incapable of writing anything unique or meaningful in an established universe. With JJ it's usually a case of identifying what better material he's seen and ripped off. With this it's old issues of Spider-Girl and ASM Renew Your Vows. Some nice art but my recommendation is to go read either of those two series. Move along, nothing to see here.

    This story about Ben Parker, Spider-Man and MJs son doesn’t make a lot of sense. Has an interesting premise (Peter and Ben are estranged as Ben starts developing powers), but the execution is terrible. They fight, neither listens to the other, characterizations aren’t consistent, Ben is a brat, grievous wounds miraculously heal between panels, scientific breakthroughs are more like magic, it’s all silly but oh so serious too. Lots of blood and death. Not good not fun. A disappointment

    This was an interesting take on the future of Spider-Man. I liked following Peter and Mary Jane’s kid, Ben, as he tried to navigate life in a world without heroes. The spin on all of the characters was intriguing and I would like to continue following this storyline.

    This experience in nepotism started promisingly but despite the effort shown, the narrative and characterization seem rushed. It's an interesting begin to a story we will likely never see the follow up.
