New Comic Book Day with Spider-Man : Life Story.
Get over the midweek hump by popping out to your local comic shop and grabbing yourself some comics. These are Geeky Brummie’s picks for the comics that will be available today from your local comic book store including Spider-Man : Life Story and The Wild Storm. Plus a round up of other regular comics you should be reading.
Title: SPIDER-MAN : LIFE STORY
Publisher: Marvel Comics
Issue No.: 1
Creative Team: Chip Zdarsky – Writer, Cover Artist : Mark Bagley – Artist : Tyler Kirkham, Skottie Young, Marcos Martin & Greg Smallwood – Variant Cover Artists
What if Spider-Man had aged in real time? That’s the intriguing premise of this new series from Marvel as part of its 80th Anniversary celebrations. This series is set to explore how life might have been for Peter Parker, starting with him in the 60s as a teenager and then following the next 57 years of his life. Chip Zdarsky has already writing some great books for Marvel including a great run on Howard The Duck and time on Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man. The main draw for me is artist Mark Bagley who has done some incredible work and is best know for his seminal run on Ultimate Spider-Man. This series will run for six issues following Peter through the 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s and up to today.
From the Publisher:
“In 1962, the world watched as teenager Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider…allowing him to become the Amazing Spider-Man! It’s been fifty-seven years since the AMAZING FANTASY #15, the story that brought everyone’s favorite wall-crawler into the Marvel Universe and jumpstarted some of the most adventurous super hero stories ever — but what if Spider-Man had aged at the same rate as our world?
When Flash Thompson is drafted to serve during the Vietnam War, Spidey must weigh the question of where his responsibility truly lies!“
Title: THE WILD STORM
Publisher: DC Comics
Issue No.: 21
Creative Team: Warren Ellis – Writer : Jon Davis-Hunt – Artist & Cover Artist
Award winning writer Warren Ellis marches us ever closer to the finale of The Wild Storm. Last issue saw the spectacular return of fan favourites Apollo and Midnighter and the stakes are now sky high as The Authority assembles. The series has been incredible throughout its run. Ellis has taken characters from the old WildStorm universe and turned them into an unmissable book. He has been helped in no short measure by the phenomenal art of Jon Davis-Hunt. Jon is up there with the likes of Jim Lee and Bryan Hitch. This widescreen action book is filled with superb writing and top notch art – don’t miss it.
From the Publisher:
“The experimental subjects code-named Apollo and Midnighter have broken cover. Combat-optimized superhumans are now loose on the Earth.“
Also out this week are new issues from comics I recommend you start picking up including The Immortal Hulk #15, Uncanny X-Men #14, Meet The Skrulls #2, Naomi #3 and Middlewest #5.
