It’s been a dark time for Fantastic Four fans.

My Name Is Miles Morales

spider-man-miles-moralesFor the past few weeks, I’ve been catching up on Brian Michael Bendis’ Ultimate Comics Spider-Man in preparation for Miles Morales’ insertion into the “regular” Marvel Universe. While I’m still a little wary about having two Spider-men running around in the main Marvel Universe, I’ve been having a blast reading Miles’ adventures as he figures out a way to live up to the legacy Peter Parker left behind.
