If you’re a fan of supporting characters from the Spider-Verse, you may want to pick up the new Starbrand and Nightmask ongoing series. Greg Weisman will be writing the book. He is well known for helping produce, in my opinion, the best Spider-Man cartoon of all time. In a recent CBR article he said:
Kevin and Adam will be roommates, but we’ll be introducing a lot of supporting characters, rapidly. Probably the most important is their R.A., Imani Greene, who is destined to become an extremely significant character in the mythos. There’s also dormmates Kenny Kong, Shelly Conklin and Krysta Brown, Campus Security Guard Tiny McKeever, and Imani’s physical therapist Sha Shan Nguyen (one of my favorite characters in the canon). Plus, what would an E.S.U. education be without a course from a certain Professor Warren?
So you have Sha Shan, Flash Thompson’s old flame. You have Tiny McKeever, who premiered during Untold Tales of Spider-Man. You also have the Jackal? I really wasn’t going to pick up this book, but with Weisman and a bunch of Spider-Man’s supporting cast, I’m now sold.
