Spider-Man Spectacular

Spider-Man’s luck is about to get worse, as an experimental serum transforms millionaire Harry Osborn into the villainous Green Goblin! Spider-Man soon finds himself locked in a battle high above the streets — with Aunt May caught in the middle! Can Spidey triumph with a little help from his new fan club?

Emily and the Strangers: breaking the record
Publisher: Dark Horse Comics
Writer: Rob Reger & Mariah Huehner
Artist: Cat Farris


Emily and her new band, the Strangers, won the battle of the bands and received a record contract with Awesomely Awesome Records, but can the girl who just figured out how to get along with her friends manage dealing with a major corporation?

Out of all of these brand new issues, Super Secret Crisis war is probably going to be the only one I grab from the comic book store, even if it’s just for nostalgic reasons. I grew up with Dexters Laboratory, and Ed, Edd, and Eddy so it’ll be awesome seeing them all in one comic together. I also really like Derek Charm’s style. He’s drawn a couple of Powerpuff Girls issues, and his work is always so vibrant and fun. I love his layouts.

I’m tempted to check out The Amazing World of Gumball aswell. I like what I’ve seen of the TV show, and if it’s anything like the Bravest Warriors comic, which is also illustrated by Tyson Hesse, then I’ll be a happy bunny. The only other issue I’m tempted by is Savage Hulk. Alan Davis has written so many great issues of X-Men that this has to be good; however I’ve never been a massive Hulk fan.
