We pick up another new character this week as we read “Silk: The Life and Times of Cindy Moon” by Robbie Thompson. This Spider-verse event follow-up goes in-depth on Cindy Moon’s life after being rescued from her underground bunker. The premise is very cape-comics, but the result is a solid comic. We talk about the marriage of art and narration, the likability of Cindy Moon as a character, and why this doesn’t feel like a hard place to get into a new character, even with the convoluted origin. Plus, Andy shops for dollhouse furniture and David doesn’t want to hear your TLJ opinion.

Next time: “My Favorite Thing Is Monsters” by Emil Ferris
We end our Brian Michael Bendis arc with “Daredevil: Wake Up.” A writer for the Daily Bugle goes off-assignment and investigates the story of one boy and his encounter with Daredevil. We talk about the buildup and release of the boy’s trauma, the amazingly pretty art, and what it means to Bendis a story.

Our Spider-Man series finishes on a high note, with “Kraven’s Last Hunt.” Written by J.M. DeMatteis and drawn by Mike Zeck, it’s possibly one of the best comic books we’ve ever read, an in-continuity cross-title tale that tromps all over the hallowed literary ground of stand-alones and graphic novels. From the narrative structure, to the delicately balanced art, we audibly salivate over the goodness of this book. For more information on past or future shows, visit www.AtomicPoweredSuperCast.com!
