“Amazing Spider-Man” kicks off “New Ways to Die” in issue #568. I can’t decide if “New Ways to Die” sounds more like a Guns N Roses song (“Welcome to the jungle, Spidey… find new ways to die!”) or a James Bond title. (007 in … New Ways to Die!). Either way, you’ve got the return of Eddie Brock as Venom, you’ve got some guy called Anti-Venom, you’ve got the Thunderbolts after Spider-Man. By Dan Slott, Mark Waid and John Romita Jr.
Also this week, a big “Final Crisis” tie-in that I think I’ll enjoy more than the regular book: “Final Crisis: Legion of Three Worlds” by Geoff Johns and George Perez.

Does anybody think Marvel’s milking a trend, here? I mean, I love monkeys, and, monkeys on comics are said to sell comics – well, in the 1960s – so, I guess we’ll just see what demand is for these.
