Definitely gonna be interesting to see how they pull this off; the first weekly comic in a looooong time. Amazing Spider-Man 101 - Morbius strikes! Great for the day and age it was done. Amazing Spider-Man 361 & 362 - Carnage's debut in the Marvel Universe pre-Maximum Carnage. Not bad, great art as ever and a pretty good story. Carnage is really an underrated character just because his motivations lack "depth". Ya ask me, that' what's so damn scary about him. Annihilation Super Skrull 2 - I feel a bit displaced in this whole event because of all the aliens. Hopefully, all these minis will make more sense when they come together in the end. Perfect for Super Skrull fans, though. Ares 4 - The Greek Gods get their own Ragnarok and it looks like father vs. son next issue. Can't wait! Cable Deadpool 28 - So, in yet another disregard to continuity, Flag-Smasher's back and no longer sporting the red skin and alterations he got back in Cap's title (where I also thought he died, but whatever) and Domino's been hired to find out why Deadpool's there. We get a nice short battle and some DP quips, and find out Cable's taking over the country! Definitely a good issue. Last Planet Standing 10 - Another MC2 event! And from the looks of things, this' gonna be a good sequel! New X-Men 26 - Finally, an explanation on Stryker between now and GLMK2. Kind of a cop out explanation, but it's better than villains who reform and revert for no other clear reason than they can. Yup, looking at you, Sandman. Anyways, it looks like the New X-Men are being whittled down one by one in this new religious crusade. Just hope they didn't jump the shark with this one. She Hulk 7 - Good art! Yessss! The only thing that kept me from enjoying this title fully! Anyways, the Starfox trial wraps up in excellent Slott fashion (was also cool to see an Avengers comic I actually own in there), but with Civil War looming the fun's just beginning! Spider-Girl 98 - Hobgoblin strikes! May and Venom team-up! The Buzz! Ladyhawk! Raptor! Defeated! Hobby's definitely gonna make some new powerful enemies..and he's gonna wish he hadn't! Why are you NOT reading this book? This is everything you all want in a Spidey book! Right here! No Other! No Iron Spidey! No stingers! Just pure, classic Spidey. Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends 1 - Good comic! Felt just like the cartoon in every way. A must for any fan of the show. Spider-Man Collector's Preview 1 - It's so odd to read about James Cameron's Spider-Man movie. Outdated information for sure, but fun to read and see what worked out and what changed between then and now. Spider-Man The Final Adventure 2 & 3 - Spidey's Portland adventure continues as he tries to find Tendril and make right what he believes is his fault. Art was decent, but the story was pretty good. I got the first issue when it first came out, gift from my bud's parents for some reason I forget. All I need is #4 and I can finally find out EXACTLY what happens. Superman 652 - Superman makes his return, but it appears his powers more closely reflect his Golden Age counterpart. Permanent or just slow in coming? Time will tell. The Puzzler was a pretty interesting villain. A corny gimmick, but nicely done. I just hope it's not a setup that despite the absence things're just gonna fall right back into the original status quo. That would just be...boring. I wait and see. Thunderbolts 102 - Some character development on Joystick (a remnant from the CLONE SAGA, thankyouverymuch) as we learn she may not be playing the side we think or assume she is. When this boils over, gonna be a big boom. X-Men Deadly Genesis 6 - And the mini that couldn't wraps up. We get Vulcan's full origin, we get the full story behind the original New X-Men, and why Xavier's no longer at the mansion. It was a good story despite it being more shoe-horned continuity, but it suffered due to the crappy PR Machine at Marvel. Brubaker, who weaves a hell of a mystery, couldn't defeat the fact his solution was already broadcast before the first issue ever came out. Wanna see what he's really capable of? Pick up Daredevil.
