Demon Days: Cursed Web (2021) #1 by Peach MoMoKo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the third part of Peach Momoko’s look at the Marvel Universe through the lens of Japanese mythology and manga.
While at times it’s a little hard to follow, it’s a consistently beautiful and deeply interesting take on some familiar characters. Momoko is very much telling her own story here, rather than adapting existing Marvel stories. It’s executed extremely effectively and, I suspect, stands very well on its own merits, even if you’re not familiar with the characters that she’s referencing.
I’ve been a fan of Momoko’s artwork for a while now, having an ever growing collection of her stunning variant covers, so getting a whole comic book full of her art always feels like a real treat.
