Feels like a big week this week! Superman gets the spotlight in “Final Crisis: Superman Beyond,” written by Grant Morrison. Brad Meltzer returns to comics with “DC Universe Last Will and Testament,” drawn by Adam Kubert. Marvel brings some heat as well, as Mark Millar’s “Wolverine” continues, the second part of Amazing Spider-Man’s “New Ways to Die” hits, and Spidey is drawn into Secret Invasion with “Secret Invasion: Spider-Man.” Full list and commentary after the break.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #569 NWD
This may be what gets the post-Brand New Day Amazing Spider-Mans going for people. While I, like most people who are sane, had severe problems with “One More Day,” the “Brand New Day” stories have been pretty good so far. “New Ways to Die” seems like it could be one of those Spider-Man stories that really get people talking, even though it seems to me a little more “Maximum Carnage” than “Kraven’s Last Hunt.” Still, I enjoyed the first issue well enough.

DC UNIVERSE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT #1
This will probably be awfully — serious? I like Meltzer’s books; I liked his Green Arrow. I have very mixed feelings on his high-profile “Identity Crisis.” I like Adam Kubert’s work, though I was frustrated by the lateness of “Action Comics.” This series looks like a bag of mixed feelings for me — so, I’ll at least pick it up and see what I think.
