Writer Dan Slott has been pretty open about the idea that Spider-Man absolutely should not have a sidekick. But that’s exactly what he gave him, and we’re finally getting Bailey Briggs’s solo adventures in Spider-Boy #1.
Written by Slott, with art by Ty Templeton and Paco Medina, the issue finds Bailey still struggling with the fact that Peter Parker doesn’t really remember him. Mind you, Peter is trying… Bailey is still a kid, and he’s not going to totally kick him to the curb. But hopefully, this series will start to answer the important questions, like: where has Bailey been living? How does he make money? Does he eat?
Also maybe some other stuff, we’ll see.
