The Green Goblin Returns!
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Someone has a superiority complex. Here’s a hint: his name rhymes with “Blotto Bloctavius.”
SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #10
IT BEGINS HERE!!
It’s the perfect jumping on point as The Green Goblin returns… and Spider-Man is nowhere to be found!
But after the previous issue, can we even be sure there is a Spider-Man left to defend New York City?
There doesn’t even appear to be a Peter Parker left to fight Doc Ock’s takeover of the web-slinger!

What’s the catch? He believes his vaunted robotic security system will stop Daisy in her tracks, and he wants to prove it.

The Avengers hit the big-time!
Wednesday, December 5, 2012
When we last saw the Avengers in their own book, Captain America discussed with Iron Man how the Avengers fit into the world and wondered whether Earth’s Mightiest were truly needed in this day and age.
Tony Stark’s answer was simple, and very Tony Stark in nature: “We go bigger.”
And the Avengers are doing just that!
AVENGERS #1 NOW
The greatest heroes in comics together on one unbeatable team! Now shipping twice a month, the Avengers “go large,” expanding their roster and their sphere of influence to a global and even interplanetary level. When Captain America puts out his call - who will answer? Big threats, big ideas, big idealism - these are the Avengers NOW! Written by Jonathan Hickman. Art by Jerome Opeña.
FF #1 features Ant-Man, new team for Marvel NOW!
Wednesday, November 28, 2012
FF #1 NOW!
We have seen the future and it will be fantastic!
In the absence of the Fantastic Four, a substitute Four, hand-picked by the real deal - Ant-Man, Medusa, She-Hulk and Miss Thing - stand ready to guard the Earth and the nascent Future Foundation for four minutes… NOW! what could possibly go wrong?
Matt Fraction is the writer for FF, and it’s drawn by Madman creator Mike Allred, with colors by Laura Allred.
Newsarama gives the issue 9/10, saying:
There almost aren’t enough words to describe Mike and Laura Allred’s gorgeous art. Mike Allred captures the spirit of each character to perfection. It’s his little touches that really hit the nail on the head, like Reed’s chin stretching as he thoughtfully strokes it, or the way Artie quizically cocks his head, shining his lighted helmet on Leech. It’s because of these simple touches, these moments of unspoken pantomime, that the intro pages for the younger cast members go over as well as they do. Perhaps his best character, however, is She-Hulk, whose strength is palpable and sexy, and perfectly reflected in her physique. Shulkie, as Allred’s almost equally lovable Ben Grimm calls her, is an easy character to under - or over- sell, and Allred strikes the perfect balance.
Cap kicks off for Marvel NOW!
