The Spider is really distinguishing itself from the pack in the second issue. Previously I had found the art to be a little generic, and it reminded me a little of the traced figures of Greg Land, but here in the second issue it is much less noticeable. I don't know if its the moodier shading or what but this time around there was nothing that took me out of the story and made we wonder what I was looking at in this issue, which is a big improvement.
Another thing that stood out to me were the creative panel lay outs in many of the pages, especially the scene where he found the bomb in the office. Most of the page is of the office, then a tight image of the clock running out and then inside the letters that spell "Boom" we see the Spider jumping out of the fiery explosion, it was just very dynamic and just added a lot to the progression of the story in a very fun way.
Best of all it left me wanting more, and that's the surest mark of success.
