Game Pro #147: "To Trap a Spider" (Activision Promo)

Background

This is an eight page commercial comic, which was a tear-out feature in GamePro magazine #147.

Story Details

Eight pages. Some computer generated art, and some original text by Brian Bendis - the latter would be the only reason to splash out US$5 for these few fragments of original Spidey-Stuff.

I'm a real completest, which is the only reason I could possibly justify this purchase. But unless you HAVE to have every Spidey book ever produced, or unless your a REAL fan of Ultimate Spider-Man, or unless you TRULY love collecting these little commercial giveaways (like I do), it's impossible to justify spending that much money on what is essentially a very slick advertisement for the Spider-Man Activision video game.

General Comments

You could hardly call it a comic. The art is top rate, in the Ultimate Spider-Man style, but the story is as thin as a half-spun spider's web.

Overall Rating

Let's split it down the middle and give it an ambiguous 3 webs.
