I have been obsessed with Miles Morales and his adorable sidekick Ganke! You know… diversity is so important and especially in America where young black men are constantly being criminalised. This is so important for our society, and for the victims that have lost their lives due to race and gender. This is not just a black Spider-Man, this is normalising non-white people in our narrative. This is normalising PoC to enter roles that are usually reserved for white people.
This deserves a million stars but I’m waiting with 5 stars until I get to the end of Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man. I started with the aforementioned and read 2 Volume. Then I realised I wanted to go back to his origin story and work my way forward. So I’m two issues away from finishing the Ultimate Comics!
