Series: Marvel Universe; Secret Wars Comic 2-packs
Comments: The second wave of the “Secret Wars” comic 2-packs for the Marvel Universe line are here. This time around, figures are packaged with issues 4, 7 and 8 of the 12 issue limited series. Spidey was packaged with Magneto and issue 8 of the series.
This is going to be a short post. Spider-man in his black costume is a very minimal figure. He’s well articulated and is well painted. He lacks sculpted detail…the magic is in the paint, here folks. And magic is right. I’m surprisingly fond of this figure – which is odd considering I don’t even care for the black costume era. But, it works…this minimal interpretation of the character is spot-on.
