Issue Review
   February 9, 2015
#24 finds Brother Voodoo and Spider-Man up against a cult. Another one?! BV sure fights a lot of very similar cults.

The presence of Spider-Man adds a bit of spark to the story. After seven stories with Brother Voodoo the reader still knows virtually nothing about his personality. Nothing much about who he actually is. We just know his powers, and his habit of referring to himself in the third person. And we know that the narration, no matter who the writer is, loves to refer to him as a Ďlegendí. Meh.

  A play about voodoo and Moondog is in town?!? That can't just be a coincidence! On no, a sacrifice! Ugh! Brother Voodoo is just not interesting. Looks like the readers of the time agreed with me, as he kinda disappears after this issue for a while.

  Is it just me or did someone at Marvel reaaaally want Brother Voodoo to catch on?

  Brother Voodoo is a lame superhero with a lame arch nemesis. Not too happy with Team Up so far.

  Even if the story isn't good, I always enjoy the team up aspect of this series. This was the first issue that I didn't like at all.

  It really did feel like they were from totally different worlds, so it really didn't mesh well. Perfect example of this is the end, when Voodoo decides to kill a bitch and Spidey's just like "No".
The burning at the stake scene made no sense for Spider-Man. This is a guy that can juggle cars and he's having trouble with some ropes and a stump? He can spring stories into the air but he can't jump the 7feet to free himself? How did his cocoon save him when his regular webbing isn't fire-proof? How did he create the cocoon when his arms were tied behind his back? How did he undo his bindings while in the cocoon?

  Whatís with the dialogue announcing what we are seeing in the art? I thought we had moved past that, isnít Wein one of the writers responsible for that shift?

When Moondog fells them with laughter, was anyone else, of a certain age, reminded of the old 7-Up commercials with Geoffrey Holder?

This was an ok issue, i havenít read any of the previous Brother Voodoo issues - Nice to see some Jim Mooney

Now Playing: If you havenít already go and discover the composer Moondog, some interesting pieces...at least look up his bio, he was quite the character (Or: Paul McCartney ďLive and Let DieĒ)

  I agree they were trying to give Brother Voodoo wider exposure; that's part of what Marvel Team-Up and Marvel Two-in-One were about, to occasionally give some of the lesser characters some time in the spotlight. Thing is, this might've been better served in Brother's own feature in Strange Tales; it was just like any other story from that series, And it felt like Spidey was only along for the ride and getting in his way. I sure never expected Brother Voodoo to be so show-offy about his powers. It's like he was created so Marvel could say they have another black super-hero; he hasn't served any other real purpose in his appearances so far.

I find it kind of amazing now that Marvel has so many cults in modern times that require human sacrifices. It sucks being a beautiful young woman in New York or Louisiana.

2 stars. Too much suspension of belief here, and the ending with the reveal of Moondog was kinda lame.

  Wait, so did Brother Voodoo know that Spider-Man was going to catch the guy after Moondog left? Remind me not to get possessed by evil spirits with him around.
