Top 5 New Comics for October 3rd, 2012

By Vince

Amazing Spider-Man #695

Marvel Comics
Story: Dan Slott
Art: Giuseppe Camuncoli

Marvel Says: DANGER ZONE Part 1

Dark times are coming for Peter Parker and change is closer than you even fear. As we aim headlong to ASM #700, The Kingpin’s latest plan turns one of Spider-Man’s greatest strengths against him. Hobgoblin is back, but his days may be numbered as the past sharpens its blades.

Vince Says: Many plot threads are coming together to start what will likely be the final story arc of Dan Slott’s amazing run.

Animal Man #13

DC Comics
Story: Jeff Lemire
Art: Steve Pugh

DC Says: It’s the story you’ve been waiting for: ‘ROTWORLD: THE RED KINGDOM’!

Part one of a four-part epic in which the Earth has fallen to the Rot! Guest-starring Justice League Dark, Beast Boy and many other heroes and villains from the DC Universe!

Vince Says: One of the few bright points of the New 52 for me starts its big crossover with one of my other favorites, Swamp Thing.

Daredevil: End of Days #1

Marvel Comics
Story: Brian Michael Bendis & David Mack
Art: Klaus Janson & Bill Sienkiewicz

Marvel Says: Revealed at last…how it ends for the Man without Fear! In the near future, investigative reporter Ben Urich has one last story to write–what was Matt Murdock’s the final secret?

A story years in the making brought to you by some of the greatest creators in Daredevil history!

Vince Says: Daredevil has never really done it for me, but I absolutely loved Bendis’ work on the comic back in the early 2000s. The rest of the all-star creative team doesn’t hurt, either.

Minimum Carnage: Alpha

Marvel Comics
Story: Christopher Yost
Art: Lan Medina

Marvel Says: Minimum Carnage begins here! Carnage is back–and bigger ain’t necessarily better!

Scarlet Spider and Venom collide as the hunt for Carnage begins, taking both heroes to a place you’ll never believe.

Vince Says: The Carnage and Carnage USA minis were surprisingly good, breathing new life into a tired, one-note villain. I’m completely on board with this one.

Swamp Thing #13

DC Comics
Story: Scott Snyder
Art: Yanick Paquette


Swamp Thing learns the truth of how the Earth fell to the Rot as seen in this month’s issues of ANIMAL MAN and FRANKENSTEIN: AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E.

Guest-starring Poison Ivy, Deadman and The Parliament of Trees!

Vince Says: Animal Man and Swamp Thing have both been building to “Rotworld” since the relaunch. I’m confident they can pull off something cool.
