    Month Four of Brand New Day is upon us and so is the worst blizzard in the history of New York City!

    SPIDER-MAN FAMILY #8
    Written by KEVIN GREVIOUX & NATE PIEKOS
    Penciled by RAY HEIGHT & ZACH HOWARD
    Cover by DAVID WILLIAMS
    So, have you ever noticed that Peter Parker never really grows facial hair? That’s just this side of weird, right? We felt sorry for the wall–crawler, so we went and got him a special guest star, THE INVINCIBLE IRON MAN!!!!!! Because I think we can all agree that Tony Stark’s got the sweetest facial hair in all of Marvel Comics. Oh! And they fight a Nazi robot.
    PLUS…Spidey vs. Iceman! Spider-Man J! And a TON of classic Spidey stories!
    104 PGS./Rated A …$4.99

    Written by DAVE LAPHAM

    “In the days that follow, the Spider-Man becomes the sensation of the nation!” That was how Stan “The Man” Lee described the brief, but tumultuous, period of upheaval Peter Parker went through after the fateful spider bite that gave him great power in AMAZING FANTASY #15…but that wasn’t even the half of it! As this never-before-seen chapter of Spidey’s life unfolds, witness the trials and tribulations of young Peter confronting fame, money and everything he ever dreamed of! With a healthy dose of that ol’ Parker luck, of course…

    It really is. It's like Quesada's trying to prove our point for us.

    The cover to #556 reminds me of the cover of #408.

    I like the art by Chris Bachalo, I remember some interiors I saw not long ago here and it looked pretty cool.

    Surprisingly, Swarm does look pretty bad***. He sure has been getting a lot of press all of a sudden, for a third rate villain (Sensational, Punisher: War Journal, Marvel Adventures). Is Marvel Adventures in continuity?

    I don't think so...

    I've been reading MASM since issue #1 and it's hit and miss, but there have been some really good stories (Jeff Parker and Peter David). The weakness is that they never developed ongoing stories with the supporting cast. It's just stand alone stories with the villain du jour.

    Why do I get the impression that we're going to see a lot of Iron Man invading the covers of other Marvel characters as we get further into 2008?

    Awesome April is what it should be called for Spider-Man.

    I'm really looking forward to that With Great Power miniseries. Tony Harris is a fantastic penciller and I hope this is a bridge into getting him on Amazing Spider-Man as one of the rotating artists. Would definitely be cool!

    But everything looks like it's going to be pretty interesting. Spider-Girl should be pretty intense with Spider-Girl vs. Arana...interesting.

    Hey, how many Spider-Man stories have taken place during the supposed worst blizzard ever in New York?? Off the top of my head I can think of two already, "Art Attack" and "Media Blizzard". Speaking of 'Media Blizzard', the cover of ASM#556 is very reminiscent of ASM#408 with Ben Reilly unconscious in the snow. That's not a bad thing. I think both covers are beautiful. (I must have something for covers with Spidey being stranded in the vast, empty, frigid whiteness of a snowy wasteland)
