When I heard about a new Spider-Man cartoon coming out, I was certainly excited. Even more excited when finding out that Greg Weisman was going to be involved with the cartoon (Given his work on Gargoyles).
Seeing the first two episodes made the wait worthwhile. Already the show had:
- Funny quips from Spider-Man.
- Developing story.
- Likable characters.
Weisman and crew have stated their intentions to keep the show close to the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko era and I have to say that they do even better. As much as I enjoy the Lee/Ditko tales, the formula wears a bit thin, where as the cartoon pulls the formula off without it being redundant.
I'm sticking with this series to the end (which hopefully will not be soon).
