CBR Review: Spider-Man 1602 #5

I recently reviewed Spider-Man 1602 #5 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "It’s easy to look at a book like Spider-Man 1602 and wonder why it exists. What’s the point of telling stories involving 17th century versions of characters that we’re familiar with and can read about now? The finale to this series provides a pretty easy answer: it allows for Marvel to publish a pretty entertaining, light-hearted action comic written by Jeff Parker and drawn by Ramon Rosanas where the two of them can just go out and have fun with these ideas. Spider-Man 1602 isn’t going to win an Eisner for best limited series, but it is an amusing and enjoyable read."
