As a reader, I find it somewhat irritating that Marvel seems intent on branding every comic it releases. If it’s not got a crossover slapped on the front, it’s got the words “Ultimate” or “Dark,” “New,” or “Legacy” in the title. This was never more apparent then when “Ultimate Comics New Ultimates” arrived, the result of some heinous marketing equation.

So when “Astonishing Spider-Man/Wolverine” was announced, I couldn’t help rolling my eyes a little, as what was once the title of an X-Men book got stapled on the front of something else in the name of creating a new “line.” Still, if all the “Astonishing” books turn out as good as this one, I’d happily buy it whatever name they print on the cover.

Created by Jason Aaron (a definitive Wolverine writer) and Adam Kubert ( the definitive Wolverine artist — of one era, at least) this issue is fantastic. Spider-Man and Wolverine team-ups are ten a penny, and indeed, Aaron and Kubert did their own not so long ago in the pages of “Wolverine” #74, but having an entire six issue series to cut loose on has evidently agreed with the creative team, resulting in a fast-paced, wisecracking first issue that has all the right ingredients for a superhero odd couple: action, comedy, webs and claws.

Maybe it’s a guilty pleasure, but it’s one that plays to its strengths. The stakes constantly escalate throughout the issue, and there’s just enough time to get the joke before the next problem gets thrown at our heroes. If any element of the book looks like it might falter, it’s that this kind of momentum seems like it’ll be difficult to keep up with.

The art throughout is fantastic, with Kubert cramming the detail into every panel. He works each image like its own individual masterpiece. There’s a minor blip where a double page spread doesn’t quite work, because it reads like two single pages, but that aside it really is faultless. Even better, the selection of Spider-Man and Wolverine pin-ups that rounds out the issue actually feels like it adds value to the book. All too often, such material is throwaway and uninteresting, but when such brilliant material is included almost as an afterthought, you know the quality of the book is high.

This review wouldn’t be complete without a nod to the book’s premise, too. Since the “Astonishing” line has been re-purposed for stand-alone stories, it’s supposed to be new-reader friendly. There’s little doubt that this broadly is. At this point, the comic relies solely on the relationship between Spider-Man and Wolverine, both of whom are well-established characters. Long-time fans will perhaps get more of a laugh out of the choice of villain, or the final page twist, but they also work in isolation.

Pete ran as fast as he could. He was now running at the most extreme right now. Following a shocking ambush, Peter found out that he was being pursued by the same individuals that Mephisto imprisoned him with: The War Hunters. They were now pursuing him right now, like moths attracted to a flame. Their cybernetic implants and prosthetics had upgraded their strength, speed, and agility. This makes them the perfect hunters and trackers.

He ran past deeper and deeper into the woods, until the mist in front revealed something that Peter had hoped for: a building. It looked to be an old war camp that seemed to be from the 1700s during the time of the American Revolution. It had a shelter, as well as a stone fortress that looked like it could arm dozens of soldiers with enough manpower to take on any enemy. It was slightly ruined, as there was destroyed stone, and much of it looked covered with moss. As old as it was, it was nevertheless better than nothing.

Peter soon regained his composure and picked up his speed. He ran as fast as he could towards the war site. He ran faster than the pace he was originally picking up at. and soon vanished into the mist. The War Hunters pursuing him (Minerva, Cerberus, Prometheus, Hera, Azrael, Goliath, Malak, Hunter, and Ezekiel) were shocked at his tremendous speed, and they soon paced their running as well.

The War Hunters strike-force stopped as soon as they set foot on the Colonial War Site. While they did not care for the camp, some of them, including Goliath and Ezekiel, were genuinely quite impressed with it's design and resources. Each of them diverged into a specific group, and began to check each site to search for Peter. Minerva, Cerberus, and Hunter had checked the tents, but all they found were old food supplies, and dusted beds.

Hera and Malak looked into the shelter the Colonial soldiers used as cover. They searched each room, but they found American robes and coats, as well as rusted guns.

Goliath, Ezekiel, and Azrael had searched the insides of the old stone fortress, but all they found were empty rooms, and a swarm of vines.
