Episode 028: You Go Girl

By CBI

This week, we tackled the new FF series, with everything that’s happened from issue 1 to the brand new 4. We’ve been enjoying it quite a bit, and the new interactions between Spider-Man and the remaining Fantastic Four members are proving to be a perfect blend of humor and action. We also discussed the Ultimate Death of Spider-Man as well as the Ultimate Avengers tie-in; both fun reads... Read More »

Comic of the Week (5/18/11) – Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 158

Comic of the Week (5/18/11) – Ultimate Spider-Man Issue 158

By Vince

Marvel is continuing with the “Death of Spider-Man” in the Ultimate Universe. The events of last month’s Ultimate Spider-Man, as well as Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates #3, led to Peter Parker jumping in front of a bullet intended for Captain America. Badly injured, Peter manages to piece himself together and stumble home, where the Human Torch and Iceman are fighting for the... Read More »

Comic of the Week (5/4/11) – Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1

Comic of the Week (5/4/11) – Fear Itself: Spider-Man #1

By Vince

With another big event in “Fear Itself,” we’re of course treated to a whole lineup of tie-in comics. Event tie-ins have been very inconsistent over the years, with probably more bad than good. However, Fear Itself: Spider-Man plays its role perfectly. It expands on the story of the Fear Itself miniseries, without being required reading for the overall story. At the same time, it ...

Comic of the Week (4/27/11) – Venom Issue 2

By Vince

After bonding with Eddie Brock and Mac Gargan, the Venom symbiote is now in the possession of the US Government. Looking to weaponize the symbiote, they choose a new host: none other than Peter Parker’s long-time “friend,” Flash Thompson. Aware of the monster sharing his body, Flash still accepts the mission, especially since it allows him to walk again after losing his legs. In ... Read More »

Fancy Meeting You

Fancy Meeting You

By Roger

Yes… I loved Tangled. I am not too proud to admit it. I love watching animated movies with (or without) my children, and this was one of the best Disney’s to come out in quite some time (in my opinion). So when I spotted this illustrations, I just had to contact the artist and ask for her permission to display it on the site here. It’s just full of so much win. The artist is one ... Read More »

Spider-Man versus Wolverine Issue 1

Spider-Man versus Wolverine Issue 1

By Roger

Unless you were in diapers at the time, you remember how much of an impact the Cold War had on culture in the 80’s; it was in movies, on television, in books… hell, Sting even sang about it. It was also in comic books. In 1987, Marvel published the one-shot, “Spider-man versus Wolverine”. This issue was important for several reasons. As intriguing as the Cold War setting wa...

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 641 “One Moment in Time, Part 4”

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 641 “One Moment in Time, Part 4”

By Vince

I’m actually getting tired of talking about this storyline. It started off quite well in Issue 638, but has been experiencing a steady decline in quality. It’s now absolutely clear that Quesada had no solid plan for how to execute this story. Well, maybe he had a plan and it just sucked. Over the past decade, Quesada has been an integral part of Marvel as Editor-in-Chief. He’s been a good decision... Read More »

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 640: “One Moment in Time, Part 3”

By Vince

I still really want to like this storyline. I applaud Quesada for actually telling it. It would have been very easy to just say “Mephisto did it” and move on like “One More Day” was no big deal. However, with that story being so controversial, he felt the fans deserved this story. Then again, the fans that were most pissed off about “One More Day” have no interest in “One Moment in Time.” So, it’s... Read More »

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 638 “One Moment in Time, Part 1”

Amazing Spider-Man Issue 638 “One Moment in Time, Part 1”

By Vince

This is a story I’ve been looking forward to for quite a while. Three years, and almost 100 issues ago, Peter and Mary Jane Parker sacrificed their marriage to the interdimensional, trickster-demon Mephisto in exchange for saving Aunt May’s life. This was a huge shake-up to the Spider-Man lore and was not received well by the fans. While I personally enjoyed the plot twist, it did leave some quest... Read More »
