E42: Amazing Spider-Man #12 | Angela: Asgard’s Assassin #2 Reviews [Devil Comics Entertainment]

Spider-Verse continues in Amazing Spider-Man #12 as the Inheritors kidnap Mayday Parker’s brother. Silk escapes the Inheritors and finds safety as the Master Weaver gives Jessica Drew scrolls which explains how to stop the Inheritors. She transports the scrolls to Spider-Man who takes his army to Silk’s location only to find the totem of that world to be Uncle Ben. The story seems to be pulling together within this issue as we approach the final two issues. The last three issues only set up the individual ties while this issue is an all-out Spider-Verse must have.

The second issue of Angela: Asgard’s Assassin begins as the backstory of how Angela stole her sister from her parents. She escapes to Midgard where we learn Angela is a dealmaker and keeps the rules of Heven. She kidnapped her own sister to bring to the Angels of Heven as payment for what she owes them. As Thor and the other Asgardians are in pursuit, Angela heads to the world of the Dark Elves to find the solution to stop their pursuit. This is a much better story than the first issue as it explains more about Angela’s intentions for the kidnapping.
