Spider-Man #1 (Marvel Comics)
Finally, Miles Morales joins the main Marvel Universe. It’s a move that’s been on fans of the star of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man’s minds since he first made his debut, and now that Secret Wars is over, Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli are able to have Miles join the Avengers, Inhumans, and the OTHER Spider-Man in the all new all different Marvel Universe.

But for some reason I was compelled to pick up Harley Quinn Invades Comic Con International San Diego. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because the premise, which has Harley trying to pitch her own comic book, seemed similar to the zero issue that I loved. Maybe I felt I was being too hard on Harley’s main series and wanted to give her another shot. Or maybe I just simply like Harley Quinn and wanted to see her at San Diego Comic Con, the nerd Mecca that I’ll probably never go to in my lifetime. Whatever the reasoning, I picked up this one shot issue and actually found that I enjoyed it quite a bit. It still has a lot of the same things that irk me about the regular series, but I found myself being able to look past that and really enjoy the main story. Read the rest of this entry
