Original Spider-Man Peter Parker will meet the Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Miles Morales in the upcoming series “Spider-Men,” coming from Marvel in June.
The five-issue story is by writer Brian Michael Bendis with artist Sara Pichelli and cover artist Jim Cheung.
Here’s how Marvel describes the book:
When Spider-Man tracks down one of his deadliest villains, he suddenly finds himself thrust into another world where Peter Parker is dead…and there’s a new Spider-Man in town. As these two heroes learn the truth about their identities and their universes, they’ll embark on a journey that’ll leave them forever changed—and reveal a startling truth about a key player in the Spider-Man mythos!
The series is set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Spider-Man character, introduced in “Amazing Fantasy” No. 15 in 1962.
TOPIC 3: Batman, Catwoman in Entertainment Weekly
Entertainment Weekly has a look at Batman and Catwoman on the cover of its Summer Movie preview issue. Meanwhile, Richard Hall at of NewsOK’s new blog, Lights, Camera, Reaction reveals a full-body look at Anne Hathaway as Catwoman.
Hathaway tells Entertainment Weekly that she prepared for the role by reading the comics and studying the moves of Hedy Lamarr and Jean Harlow, two screen legends that inspired the original conception of the comic book villainess.
The MPAA recently revealed the film will be rated PG-13.
It’s the second issue of Brian K Vaughan and Fiona Staples’ space epic.
After deserting their galactic armies, former soldiers Marko and Alana must now protect their newborn girl from the lethal killers dispatched to destroy their family. Some great artwork from Staples and nice dialogue from Vaughan. We continue to meet more strange inhabitants of this world and get caught up in the drama of this small family in sort of a “Romeo and Juliet” meets “Star Wars” world.
Batman: Arkham Unhinged 1
Catwoman and Two-Face are at the center of the first issue of “Arkham Unhinged,” which explores the timeline between the “Arkham Asylum” and “Arkham City” games. First released digitally, this first print issue has nice interplay between Batman and Catwoman, and some pretty sexy art. It’s not a must-buy, but fans of the game may enjoy delving more deeply into this world.
Jonathan Hickman and Ryan Bodenheim create a corporate espionage thriller that would make an intriguing novel or movie. It works pretty well as a comic book, too.
A man gets shot in London, a law firm gets broken into in Washington, an accountant gives away the password to his computer, and something put to sleep 20 years ago awakens. What is the relationship all these things share, and how could it bring down two of the largest governments in the world?
This book gets into the shadow world existing between the government and private security firms.
