Silk #6

I still don't know what to make of Silk. Although I like Cindy Moon as a spunky teen heroine, it's an awfully crowded Spidey Universe right now and like Spider-Gwen so far I'm enjoying the design of the costume (even if the bandanna mask still doesn't quite work for me) more than the character's adventures.

Silk #6 opens with our heroine at the mercy of The Repairman who plans on dissecting young Cindy to see what makes her tick. Managing to squirm free, and in thanks to the sudden arrival of a pissed-off Black Cat, Cindy escapes death (or something far worse), but this only leaves her with the same troubles and with no new clues to the location of her missing parents.

There's plenty of action here, including a short throwdown between Black Cat and Silk, along with a cameo from your friendly neighboorhood Spider-Man, but there's nothing in this issue that suggests I've been missing much by mostly ignoring Cindy Moon's adventures so far. For fans.
