If you couldn’t sense this coming, you may want to have that checked. Peter Parker learned the difficult lesson that with great power comes great responsibility when he accidentally took on the abilities of a spider. Enduring the growing pains of adolescence is sufficiently complicated without having to hone and perfect one’s spider-sense, climbing, and webbing talents as the one and only Spider-Man. The Parker II, with its chaotic wire webbing and its nod to Parker’s red suit, is an example of his struggles to come to terms with his new powers. Orli says, “The lesson of power and responsibility going hand-in-hand is a lesson everyone would be best served learning early. It was certainly a difficult lesson for Peter Parker, though, and I think one that continues to haunt him even as it informs who he has become.”

As a bona fide comic book enthusiast, Orli celebrates the Marvel Comics multiverse, including the art and times of Stan Lee and his colleagues Jack Kirby, Len Wein, and Chris Claremont. Drawing inspiration from the flawed and conflicted heroes emerging and reemerging during the Silver and Bronze Ages, this collection capitalizes on the decisive colors, bold lines, and action-packed symbolic resonance of the genre.
