REVIEW: The Astonishing Ant-Man #12

Written by Nick Spencer, art by Brent Schoonover and Ramon Rosanas, published by Marvel

Hey look, a recap, see? Not hard is it Mr Spencer.

Anyway, this is the story of Scott Lang going on trial for a crime his daughter committed. It’s quite good. Pretty slick script, good pacing snappy dialogue. Not an especially deep story but all the emotional strings are adequately tugged at.

The art is clean and well polished, surprising with two artists on it but they seem to work well together. It has a slightly retro feel, like one of the better runs from the nineties, good attention to detail and fluid story telling with an especially nice few intro pages. There’s also a fun warehouse 13 type shot and a good use of what boils down to a bloody daft villain.

It catches a few movie beats, but that’s not a bad thing to be honest. Marvel has become more of an entity than a comic company these days.

So yeah boring review for a good comic, anyone would think I only did it to get that dig in at the start.
