BD Commentary: I’ve dissed the book for years, but I’m excited for this mini-series. Ben wasn’t a bad character, he just shouldn’t be THE only Spider-Man. I also think Howard Mackie was underrated as an writer. I’ve invited Howard and Tom to come on the July show to plug the book. Tom has accepted and I’m waiting on Howard to return my email.

 

 

 

 

 

antivenom1AMAZING SPIDER-MAN PRESENTS: ANTI-VENOM– NEW WAYS TO LIVE #1 (of 3)
Written by Zeb Wells
Penciled by Paulo Siqueira
Cover by Mirco Pierfederici
What’s Black, White and Dead all over?!?! From the pages of last year’s best-selling NEW WAYS TO DIE, Zeb Wells (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN; NEW MUTANTS) and Paulo Siqueira (Amazing Spider-Man, Ms. MARVEL) bring you the story of Eddie Brock, the sallow symbiote known as Anti-Venom! With his life saved by Spider-Man, Eddie is cautiously walking the line between the darkness and light while trying to find his place in a world marked only by gray. The absolute last person he needs to run into is the Punisher. Unfortunately, the Punisher remembers Eddie as a cold-blooded killer, and that is just gonna hurt.
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

 

BD Commentary: Ugh, I’ll probablly buy this but Zeb Wells and Anti-Venom….not my favorite.

PUNISHER ANNUAL #1
Written by RICK REMENDER
Pencils & Cover by JASON PEARSON
"REMOTE CONTROL"
The Punisher faces his greatest challenge yet: Trapped in the throes of a hypnotic spell, Spider-Man’s gone psycho and he wants to grind Frank Castle’s bones to paste! And since Spidey’s not really to blame for his actions, Castle faces a dilemma: Fight (the only way he knows how) or die. Can the Punisher survive a bloodthirsty Wall-Crawler long enough to disconnect him from the control of the Dirty Dozen’s leaders, Letha and Lascivious? Super-star artist Jason Pearson joins regular series writer Rick Remender.
48 PGS./Parental Advisory …$3.99

 

BD Commentary: This has to be the worst Spider-Logo I’ve seen in a very long time. The regular Punisher book however is solid reading.
