The Sinister War continues with The Amazing Spider-Man #71 as Mysterio takes Mary Jane away to an old hideout and Peter tangles with the Sinister Six. Mysterio’s past and redemption, as well as Kindred’s scheming, take center stage in this issue.
Admittedly, I’m behind in my SpiderMan storylines. This issue does an excellent job recapping decades of Spidey mythology while maintaining a welcoming style for those who, like myself, are just hopping on for the Sinister War storyline. TASM #71 gives us a good amount of background into Mysterio and his quest to be redeemed. Nick Spencer does an amazing job of presenting the conflicted nature of Quentin Beck. This issue does a lot to make sense of a multitude of storylines that initially drove me away from reading Spiderstories in the first place. I’m anxious to see where this arc goes.
