STAFF PICKS :: EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #5 :: OCTOBER 15, 2014

October 13, 2014 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks rico_staff_picksRICO’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.

STAFF PICKS ::INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK SPECIAL #1 :: OCTOBER 16, 2013

October 16, 2013 By: Rico Renzi Category: DISCUSS, Staff Picks

staff_picks rico_staff_picksRICO’S PICK :: INDESTRUCTIBLE HULK SPECIAL #1: Mike Costa, Jake Wyatt, and Jordie Bellaire bring you this special issue which is part 2 in “The Arms of The Octopus” trilogy. Part 1, the All New X-Men Special illustrated by Kris Anka, was great and sucked me in like the superhero comics of my youth. I love Jake Wyatt’s art and can’t wait to read this issue! If you haven’t seen Jake’s new web comic Necropolis please check it out because it’s even better than this even though it’s only about 3 pages in.
