STL133383The Amazing Spider-Man: Full Circle #1 (Marvel Comics)

Tired of Spider-Man comics? Well, Marvel doesn’t care, cause they’re bringing you another Spidey special with Full Circle. But unlike the other Spidey specials that have been released, this one features a veritable who’s who of creators, from Jonathan Hickman, Jason Aaron, Chip Zdarsky, Nick Spencer, Chris Bachalo, Mike Allred, and more crafting this special one shot. As neat as it is though, it doesn’t mean that Full Circle is all that essential. Read the rest of this entry

Ever since the Punisher MAX run, it’s been hard to put Frank Castle in the main Marvel universe.

indexPeter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #297 (Marvel Comics)

While I’ve enjoyed Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert’s Spectacular Spider-Man series, there hasn’t been a lot done with it to make it stand out from its bigger brother, Amazing Spider-Man. However, all that’s set to change now that Marvel Legacy has set in, and the rebranded Peter Parker, the Spectacular Spider-Man #297 raises the stakes and the action in this series considerably.
