Silk #2

There's definitely some old school Spider-Man vibes happening in the new volume of Silk with Cindy Moon working for J. Jonah Jameson, although her boss seems to appreciate Silk far more than he ever did the city's other Web-Head, and doing some further investigation while spinning webs in tights. The story that has Threats & Menaces interest is the attack on local gangs which Cindy has connected to the tech company Fujinet through some unusual tech.

Issue #2 provides Silk her first look at the cat demon Kasha who is working for Saya Ishii and Fujinet. She also helps arrange a safe spot for the local gangs to sit down and gets a new therapist (who, unknown to her, is actually Saya's brother pumping her for information about her story).

We're given more information than Cindy, who is still searching to prove a connection between the company and the gang killings. It's also not yet clear just how the cat demon fits in or what its ultimate goal/price for helping Ishii's takeover may be.
