Ultimate Spider-Man #113

I don’t have a lot to say about this comic book, the second part of the “Death of a Goblin” story arc. The cover promises a fight between the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus, and the story delivers, although the battle only lasts for three pages. There’s plenty of action here, though, as the Green Goblin escapes from the Triskelion, freeing several other of Spider-Man’s arch-foes in the process. This should lead to some interesting stories in future issues, and indeed this issue is primarily setup for things to come. Spider-Man himself appears only on the final page, as Peter Parker.
I wasn’t blown away by any of the action sequences or story beats in this comic book, but it held my attention and I’m looking forward to more.
