Unfortunately for Flint, he ends up getting caught in a blast which causes him to change at a molecular level and have the ability to change his body into sand. Naturally, Flint decides to use these newfound powers to enhance his criminal activities and he now has his sites set on New York City. Will Spider-Man be able to stop him?

Amazing Spider-Man 4 is yet another solid issue in the series. Sandman is another classic villain who has an interesting power. In addition, Spider-Man continues to be one of the more relatable superheroes. I mean in this issue he has to end up sewing his own mask, jumps the gun on trying to stop some jewel thieves, which causes them to call the police on him, and having to blow off a date with Liz Allen. In addition, Ditko’s art style fits extremely well with this series and action panels are top notch. I am definitely looking forward to reading more issues in this series.
