"Really starting to get the hang of this. Crazy stuff happens, I punch it."

Awesome. That word flew out of my mouth as soon as I flipped the last page of this issue. Wow. I'm absolutely loving this new character in the Spider-Verse. From the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man run with Dan Slott at it's helm, she web-slung her way into our lives and our hearts. Well, mine at least. Cindy Moon is very much a child at heart and she's growing right before our eyes.

She was bitten by the same radioactive spider that gave our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man his powers just moments after he received his bite. She tried to control the awesome web-slingin', wall climbin', ass kickin' powers that she shared with Peter Parker, but unfortunately they were too much for her. Her family was approached by a man named Ezekiel and she locked herself in a sealed, windowless bunker underground. 

In an attempt to keep this review concise, we'll fast forward a bit. She was released from the bunker, the epic Spider-Verse catastrophe concluded, and she now roams the streets of New York a free woman. But how do you just pick up the pieces of a life that you were torn from so abruptly and hardly remember? As a start, Cindy begins the search for her family, whom she hasn't seen in many years. So far this Silk solo series has illustrated her efforts to resume the life she led, while also balancing her powers and her new life as a force for good.

What makes Silk so relatable is that you can really see her struggling to make sense of everything. It's apparent as she fights her enemies that all of this stuff is insanely foreign to her, yet she tries her hardest to be the best she can be. When faced with a "Hydra tentacle-monster-robot-thingie", she pretty much beat the shit out of it. Silk has a lot of potential to be one of my favorite new Marvel characters, and I can't wait to see how she grows as a character and a superhero. Remember, don't take my word for it, pick this book up for yourself!

Favorite Quote: "We've got one last night together. And I don't want to waste it fighting."
