• The 13th sign of the Zodiac is THE SPIDER?!?!?!
• Scorpio is on the verge of controlling the future and Spider-Man’s fight will take him on both sides of the English Channel.
• But when Scorpio compromises Parker Industries, what will this mean for Peter moving forward?!

BD Commentary: Let’s hope we’re near the end of this storyline about the globe trotting, Iron Man/ Bruce Way Spider-Man. As I’ve mentioned on the podcast, and the front page reviewers have said, this is so far away from the default Spider-Man we know and love that it’s almost a different character.

Cover by JULIAN TOTINO TEDESCO
• With the threat of the ELECTROVERSE sated (for now), what’s an average day in the life of an interdimensional Spider-Man or Spider-Woman really like?
• Could it involve… MURDER?!
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

BD Commentary: This feel more like a mini-series than an ongoing. The first two issues were fun but can this series last with just different versions of Spidey fighting different versions of his villains. Who knows, 2099 worked for awhile.

• The mysterious organization called FIST makes their next move, and Spider-Man 2099 gets a helping hand investigating what they’re up to.
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

BD Commentary: Speaking of different versions of Spider-Man. This one is the book I look forward to each month. Peter David knocked it out of the park with the first issue of the all new series. I’m also interested to find out how Tempest is back with us and I wonder if Miguel will find out about his child?

• Miles finds himself face-to-face with his toughest villain yet- HIS GRANDMOTHER!!!
• And an Avengers-study session (date?) with Ms. Marvel goes horribly wrong!
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

BD Commentary: My second favorite Spider-book of the month. It’ll be interesting to see how Miles and his family interact in the 616 universe. With our Peter Parker gone on globetrotting, out of character adventures, Miles fills the role well until Peter returns to NYC.

BD Commentary:The first two were really, really bad. Our front page reviewers gave them failing grades. It’ll be nice to end this one. It reminds me of the recent Marvel Knights Spider-Man that came out.

 BD Commentary: Bendis is knocking this book out of the park. Seeing as how this book has Mary Jane in it and Spider-Man, how can you go wrong?

2015’s overnight internet sensation takes center stage in her own ongoing series! Gwen Poole used to be a comic book reader just like you…until she woke up in a world where the characters she read about seemed to be real! But they can’t be, right? This must all be fake, or a dream or something, right? And you know what that means…NO CONSEQUENCES! Could Gwenpool truly be Marvel’s least responsible and least role-modely character to date? She can if she tries!

BD Commentary: I’ve still not read the Gwenpool holiday special so I don’t know her origin. I can’t imagine the Gwen Stacy we all remember from the 1960s as ever becoming an assassin. But ,comics.

SPIDER-WOMEN PART 1!
The Spider-Event of 2016 is here, bringing SPIDER-GWEN, SILK and SPIDER-WOMAN together for a story too big for any one of their books! Spider-Woman is taking a mentor-role with Silk and Spider-Gwen, and the three spider-heroes take a brunch break on Gwen’s Earth-65. But when the nefarious spy organization S.I.L.K. and their leader (Earth-65’s Cindy Moon) notice the interdimensional interlopers, all of Jessica Drew’s plans go wrong.
40 PGS./One-Shot/Rated T+ …$4.99

BD Commentary: We haven’t had a Spider-Man Alpha related book since the 1990s with Maximum Clonage. That’s not a book to model after. I enjoy all three of these characters, but it may be a bit much to add a fourth book to collect. But Marvel isn’t trying to save you money, it’s wanting to part you with it.

BD Commentary: Like I said, I enjoy all of these ladies. But doesn’t it feel a bit of a re-tread to have them all time hopping again like Spider-Verse?

• Powered up, Carnage has set his sights far wider than ever before and with this new power and his general psychopathic tendencies, the oceans are going to be red with blood.
• Can Man-Wolf, Toxin and crew possibly contain him?
32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

BD Commentary: Conway is doing a great horror comic with Carnage. I’m digging the first few issues and I wonder how he’s able to evolve? I mean I thought he already did that by mending himself after the Sentry ripped him in half.  Always good to see John Jameson and Eddie Brock in supporting roles too. 

 

SPIDEY2015005-Cov-31cadSPIDEY #5

• Spidey and Iron Man take on THE VULTURE!
• The most refreshing book in comics hits you right in the gut with this one!
32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

BD Commentary: Ha, Ha. Marvel made you buy issue one thinking it was set in the 616 universe or Earth Prime or Earth 1 or whatever. Well they hope they knocked your socks off with this incognito All ages book. I actually dug the first issue if you take it without 50 years of continuity,and the art was awesome!

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

BD Commentary: This has been the most disappointing book for me with the relaunch. I’m not feeling the team or the direction.

32 PGS./Rated T+ …$3.99

BD Commentary:The first issue was better than I though it should be. The art is nice, but I just can’t see Flash in outer space. The concept, like All New Amazing Spider-Man feels wrong.

Taking on both writing and art duties, McFarlane ushered Peter Parker into a gritty new era — and it began with “Torment”! When the Big Apple’s streets run red with blood, the web-slinger heads into the sewers to stop the Lizard’s homicidal rampage. But what is driving his old friend and foe? Plus: Ghost Rider lends a bony hand when the deranged Hobgoblin returns, the wall-crawler finds himself at the center of a clash of claws between Wolverine and Wendigo, and Pete goes back in black to face Morbius the Living Vampire!

  1. Yvonmukluk

    Also, anybody else worried by the fact Mayday consistently fails to appear on Web Warriors covers? Are they planning to get rid of her?

  2. Yvonmukluk

    It's probably worth noting that Gwenpool is not actually Gwen Stacy, but a girl named Gwen Poole from a universe where Marvel comics are works of fiction. So she's got nothing really to do with Spider-Man. Quite a funny book, though.

  3. krankyboy

    Slott is to Spider-Man what "Moonraker" was to James Bond (and that's an insult to the filmmakers of"Moonraker"). I've said this before, but SPIDEY is one of the few books that feels like Spider-Man and I'll be getting it for that. Miles Morales bores me to tears and has always struck me as redundant (Spider-Man should never have been a legacy character since Peter makes the engine run). It's a little gross that Marvel is now grafting everything one associates with Peter in 616 onto their replacement character. The rest of the various titles don't interest me much. Happy reading everyone.

  4. Al

    @#8: I believe it kinda does but also doesn’t they can be in proximity to one another and avoid the pheromones playing up.

  5. Jason

    @4 Hmm, what is this… SPIDER-MAN: BRAND NEW DAY “Beginning a complete collection of one of the most CELEBRATED eras in Spider-history!” Marvel thinks that awful Brand New Day is one of the most celebrated eras? LOL. Yes, I was thinking this too!!!

  6. Jason

    I'm glad I don't have to wait long for the Carnage or Spidey/Deadpool trades. Any word on a "Spidey" trade?

  7. Frontier

    @#8 - It's been completely dropped in Silk. Cindy acts more like Peter's an ex or a "nice guy" who's interested in her with no mention of they were previously forced to make out and try and have sex with one another because of Spider-Pheremones. Probably for the best for both characters.

  8. hornacek

    "Spider-Man & Silk have gone back in time ... and accidentally stopped their own origins from happening!" I assume at the end of this mini they will go back in time again and make sure their origins do happen. I wonder if Marvel will use this opportunity to make some change so that Spidey and Silk do not get super-horny when they're around each other. I'm sure (at least I hope) that Marvel wants to forget about that part of her origin. Does it even come up when Spidey appears in Silk's series? "Squirrel Girl is going to be facing off against SWARM, a bad guy made out of bees!" If you ever needed proof that Marvel's solicitation department didn't listen to the podcast, this is it. "bad guy"? "made out of"? Come on! Somewhere, Kevin is crying out in anguish. "And in the ultimate nineties team-up, Spidey joins X-Force to battle the unstoppable Juggernaut!" I think the only thing this "ultimate team-up" is remembered for now is the panel where Juggernaut knocks over one of the World Trade Center towers and laughs.

  9. David Lawrence

    Rather than making me buy more, Marvel's crossovers make me skip issues. I won't be picking up Spider-Woman this month. Zero faith in any Marvel event.

  10. Mark Alford

    Oh great. The point issues are still coming out... This is like the jelly of the month club. The gift that keeps on giving.

  11. hornacek

    @4 - "Marvel thinks that awful Brand New Day is one of the most celebrated eras? LOL." But didn't you read the rest of the solicitation? It contains the first appearances of the classic characters Screwball, Freak and Jackpot!

  12. PeterParkerfan

    Spider-Man and Deadpool on a double date with Shiklah and FemThor? This is gonna be fun. I'm so buying this. I'll pick up SPIDEY too. And BD is right, it's easy to enjoy SPIDEY is you take it without the continuty. I'm gonna try reading the first issue of A YEAR OF MARVEL: THE AMAZING. If the Spider-Man story is good, then I'm all for spending $60 on it. I'm looking forward to SPIDER-MAN 2099 #9 as well. Hmm, what is this... SPIDER-MAN: BRAND NEW DAY "Beginning a complete collection of one of the most CELEBRATED eras in Spider-history!" Marvel thinks that awful Brand New Day is one of the most celebrated eras? LOL.
