RICO’S PICK :: EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #5: Have you read Umbrella Academy? If not, go do that, it’s great and more than enough to make one take note anytime writer Gerard Way writes a new comic book. The majority of Marvel’s Edge of Spider-Verse has been an exercise in what I consider the best style of comic book editing. That is, select a creative team you trust, give them a broad idea of what you need/want, let them create. For EOSV #5, Way is joined by artist Jake Wyatt whose recent work on Ms. Marvel and Indestructible Hulk is noteworthy. The pair of creators have re-imagined Spider Man as a futuristic mech-operating hero, think Neon Genesis Evangelion Spider-hero. I can’t wait to read lose myself in the new world they’ve created. There’s a small preview here.
