The Amazing Spider-Man #75 – 1969 – Cover by John Romita

A fine reflective picture of a weary Web-Slinger. Truly iconic 

Chosen by Taz Maz

Silver Surfer #4 – 1969 – Cover by John Buscema and Sal Buscema

The ‘Sky-Rider of the Spaceways’ faces Thor on Buscema’s classic cover.  This depiction of a showdown on Asgard’s rainbow bridge stands as a great example of dynamic action, pose and character design.  Each instantly recognisable and very much a signature of one of the old masters.  Check out ‘How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way’ if you want to see how he worked his magic.

Wonder Woman #600 – 2010 – Cover by Adam Hughes

There are no women like Adam Hughes women, and there are no covers like homage covers. Slap ’em together, and you get this stunning image. The already fantastic cover to Sensation Comics #41 is impeccably reworked by master artist Adam Hughes in a cover that no comic book fan could resist putting on display, and a fitting reward for readers of Wonder woman issue 600.

Unwritten#43 – 2013 – Cover by Yuko Shimizu

Could have picked any cover from this series. Shimizu drew them all and every one of them was brilliant!

Chosen by Ross Kelly

Tomb of Dracula #1, April 1972 – cover by Neal Adams

A cover that perfectly captures the over-the-top drama and the stunning artwork of the Bronze Age revival of horror comics, following a slight loosening of what the Comics Code would allow. Each issue of this series is a perfectly balanced blend of tense, dark atmosphere and melodramatic histrionics and this cover represents that perfectly, the helpless blonde in a classic Lugosi style Dracula’s arms with an eerie backdrop of forest, castle and moonlight. And that logo is just absolutely timeless!

Chosen by Nathan Harrison

Batman #496 – Cover by Kelly Jones

I’ve never been a fan of Kelly Jones’ artwork if I’m being perfectly honest. Which is why I have to give him credit for this brutal and haunting image from his Knightfall cover gallery, in which, the ghost of Jason Todd cries out for vengeance from beyond the grave. But is it a ghost or merely an expression of Batman’s guilt-ridden conscience? Pain, sorrow, guilt, justice, vengeance, anarchy, chaos: all of these things are happening here!

Chosen by Bryan Lomax

BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: DEATH OF APOLLO #5 – 2015 – Mike Meyhew

This watercolor from Mike Meyhew is simply stunning. From a technical standpoint, it’s flawless. The color pallet, the postures, framing, and just how beautiful are those stars!

Thematically, it evokes an emotional depth in which the run itself just missed out on delivering, but given the title, any BSG fan would feel a lump in their throat seeing a scene such as this on the cover.

Chosen by LJ Marshall


16

Action Comics #393 – Oct 1970Cover by Curt Swan

It’s action, suspense, and a key question: why would a kid want to stop Supes from saving his father?

The added bonus of “How Superboy Became Superman” makes this a must-read 

Chosen By Liam Ashby

The Amazing Spider-Man #90 – Review

Gleason’s writing chops are nothing to mess with and pair beautifully with legendary artist Mark Bagley in a satisfying issue that I couldn’t put down, as far as verdicts go, you’re not going to get a better one than this.

The Amazing Spider-Man #90

Written by: Patrick Gleason
Artwork by: Mark Bagley
Published by Marvel
Released: 23/2/22

As a quick refresher, in the past couple of issues, Ben Reilly has been partially mind-wiped by those slimy rapscallions over at Beyond, the same dudes/dudettes that have unleashed the Queen Goblin on New York. On top of that, Old Peter Parker has managed to get back on his feet and is on his merry way to put an end to Queen Goblin’s reign of terror!

We begin with Beyond’s top dog, Maxine Danger tracing Ben Reilly as he swings across a bridge with Janine, who notices there’s definitely something off about Ben, which is where he confesses that he feels like he’s missing something in his mind (which, by the way, he totally is,  being brain wiped and all). He tells Janine that he just needs to focus and everything will be hunky-dory, but Janine knows that’s not good enough, it’s at that point that she spills the Intel she’s discovered about Beyond. Or rather, how they’ve set up the whole thing, sending out super-villains for Ben to stop so that they can get good publicity for themselves and their little Spider-man project. They decide that they’re going to take it to the top and go confront the big bosses at Beyond, but first, we’ve got some sweet, sweet action to attend to.

Pete is up in the skyscrapers, battling the new Queen goblin foe, which is where we get a ton of quality Spidey crack-ups, from getting confused with the X-men’s Goblin Queen to mentally crying for help as he barely manages to dodge the goblin’s blows. It’s moments like this where I feel Patrick Gleason really understands and gets the Spider-man character, I don’t feel like it’s one writer’s take on Spider-man, I just think of it as Spider-man, which is the best kind of writing. Of course, it’s great to actually know who’s writing a book by the tone it sets and dialogue and all the rest of the mumbo jumbo. But when it feels so much like the definitive, quintessential character, that’s when you know you’re doing a good job of writing a mainstream comic book. Obviously, it’s awesome to get some subversive material from creators not typically known for the superhero genre like, for example, Pete Bagge’s megalomaniacal Spider-man as well as a lot of other early 2000’s marvel books, which was a very interesting period for the company, but for Marvel’s flagship title, Pat Gleason does a fantastic job of realizing what readers want out of the main Spidey title. And speaking of what readers want, Mark Bagely is delivering some of his best work in the last 20 years in this issue as Spidey and the Goblin take their battle through offices, Spider-man billboards (with the Sam raising font, nice touch), and even subways. Every panel has energy inside it, there’s so much going on, but in a really good way, these pages are bursting at the seems with excitement and it really displays Bagely’s accumulation of skill on his 30-plus year tenure drawing the character. I, at least, got the sense that he must have really enjoyed penciling these issues and it shows great stuff.

Getting back to the story, the Queen goblin manages to use her unique “Goblins gaze” ability which she used successfully on the black cat’s last issue, which would have resulted in her death if not for the web-slinger arriving just in time. So Peter falls into the sea and goes through the whole “you’re not good enough” thing, but Spidey is able to defeat the hold it has on him, in his words “Doesn’t she realize self-doubt is kind of our thing?”. Pete manages to jump up out of the water and deliver the finishing blow to the latest addition to the Goblin Hall of shame.

Spider-man is able to get back onto the docks, where he meets up with MJ and the Black cat at that moment in all great superhero stories, where the previously split apart gang get back together again for the big finale, Peter is sent on his way to find Ben by his companions, but as we check up on Ben, he is kind of going a little bit insane, he’s not going evil insane, but Beyond have really scrambled his eggs to the point he doesn’t even remember Peter’s name when they meet up, but Ben pushes through it, and this installment ends with a page as awesome as when I found 20 pounds in a grid that one time, which means its totally awesome. Both Spider-men, suited up and ready to take Beyond down, Once and for all!


This issue was one of the best parts of Beyond to date, delivering all of those epic moments you know you love as we dive headfirst into what is bound to be an incredible final act of Spider-man: Beyond. Gleason’s writing chops are nothing to mess with and pair beautifully with legendary artist Mark Bagely in a satisfying issue that I couldn’t put down, as far as verdicts go, you’re not going to get a better one than this. Although if I had to make one small gripe, I would say that the Beyond company’s whole twist and game plan is a little predictable, but that is an issue that pails in comparison to all of the great aspects of this Spidey-saga. Join me soon for the next chapter!

The Amazing Spider-Man #83 – Review

Pat Gleason does a fine job as the sole storyteller on this issue of The Amazing Spider-man and that’s worth commending. Well done beyond team!

The Amazing Spider-Man #93

Written and drawn by Patrick Gleason
Published by Marvel Comics
Released – 29/12/21

This issue of the Amazing Spider-man is a special one! Beyond board member/artist Patrick Gleason takes on scribing duties as well as art on this book. A story of heroic success and rising above his enemies…is not the story told in these pages, well, it kind of is actually…

Janine Godbe, Ben Reilly’s loveable girlfriend stares at a highly advanced screen sprawling headlines with Spider-man’s name across them as she sits in a pool. This scene, by the way, us about as much as we see from the Reilly side of the Spider-family. She talks to (guess who?) Marcus on the phone and then wanders off. Not a needed scene, but it’s good the book tries to keep intertwined with both Spider-men in the same issue instead of drawing away from the main arc.

Next thing we know, we’re in the hospital where Peter Parker, who has apparently totally forgotten about the crazy monster that tried to EAT him last issue, is being scolded for not being up to physical therapy. Luckily, these last couple of issues Peter’s been getting a lot better to the point where he can stay conscious and even be able to walk. Once the doctor leaves, however, his Spider-sense sets off and goes crazy, the imagery in this scene is pretty darn cool and Switches up the colorist to the renowned Nathan Fairburn who makes the scene look flatter but insanely vibrant and beautiful as Spider-man falls through his own brain. We get some more awesome imagery as a spider literally breaks through Peter’s face and a Spider-man-like creature walks out of his head (yep) into the distance.

Sometime after, the nurse once again confronts Peter about his physical therapy and she’s told he’s up to it as she hands him a package. Inside the package is an old, tattered Spidey-stume from, as the comic states, 2007?! That would mean that Spider-man has been Spider-man for at least 15 years. So that means that if we take into account that Spider-man was 15 when he became the web-slinger, he is now AT LEAST 30 YEARS OLD! THAT’S ANCIENT!!! (apologies to any readers in their 30’s and up, you aren’t THAT old). In my mind, Spider-man should be no older than 25-26, that’s not too young to be married or even have a kid and he’d still be considered young in the grand scheme of things (again, no shame for people in their 30’s, you’re in your bodies physical prime, enjoy it whilst it lasts!). unfortunately, however, his age does fit into marvel’s sliding timescale ratio, being that 4 years in real-time is one year in the marvel universe, so considering Spider-man turns 60 this year, dividing that by 4 we do actually get 15 years.

Sorry for my rantings but I just wish Marvel could do some sort of reset to make the characters younger, they have to do something at some point, or else in another 60 years Spider-man’ll be walking his kids down the aisle, which is not cool (or it could be, perhaps in an alternate universe). Aaaaaanyways, this is the point where marvel deems this the biggest Spider-man moment in years, that is, Peter Parker getting acknowledged in action!

Lounging on a skyscraper wearing a gown and slippers, he spots his first criminals of the night, a couple of star-crossed lovers who’ve just robbed a bank. Just a little side note, in this scene in particular l, the dialogue sounds a little janky and unnatural, I’m not sure how far Gleason’s writing career extends but some of the speech doesn’t sound like how a person would speak. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, Tarantino characters sound totally weird but it works for the narrative, but this however was just a few errors that could have been ironed out. VERY if it sounds like I’m being a downer but that’s my biggest complaint with this issue and it’s VERY minor which should give you an indication on how good this issue is. Spider-man lands on the hood of the thieves car and as he prepares to shoot his web, his web shooter starts playing toy sounds, with Peter understanding the seller he had bought it from had reworked it to be a toy, and gets hit full force by the car as it thrusts into the wall, then taking a huge beating from the couple who would’ve been slim pickings a few weeks ago in Spidey’s life.

By some divine intervention, Captain America, an avenger who is likely busy with saving the world, just happens to be hanging around a New York car park and saves Spider-man from the terrible clutches of two Bank robbers! One of the robbers ends up shooting a bullet directly at Spidey’s head when it’s diverted by Captain America’s shield! However, in a moment that ca  only be summed up in the word “ooooooooffoowweech!” Spider-man gets totally spangled on the dome with America’s symbol of heroism. Aaaaand that was the end if Spider-man’s short-lived super-heroine return. Another dream sequence occurs where uncle Ben has a wholesome chat with Peter about heroes and that Spider-man looking creature from before emerges when a young Peter calls out the webheads name as the spindly figure lunges at him, he turns into Spider-man and bats the creature away and the issue ends with Peter waking up, crying NEVER!


Did this issue have one of the biggest Spider-man moments ever? Not really, on the other hand though, it was a really solid, action-packed issue with various qualities of coloring and one of the funniest Spider-man scripts in a while, this book did make me chuckle a couple times. Pat Gleason does a fine job as the sole storyteller on this issue of The Amazing Spider-man and that’s worth commending. Well done beyond team!

Amazing Fantasy #1 Review

If you’re in a comic shop and don’t feel even the remotest pull of curiosity when faced with an image of Captain America riding a winged lion, then perhaps you are browsing the wrong shelves…

Amazing Fantasy #1

Reviewed by Andy Flood, 8/8/21

Published by Marvel Comics


If you’re in a comic shop and don’t feel even the remotest pull of curiosity when faced with an image of Captain America riding a winged lion, then perhaps you are browsing the wrong shelves.  The first issue of Amazing Fantasy has such an image on its cover and it really is one you have to hold in your hands to appreciate.

Granted, old ‘Cap’ looks a little different here, with Thor-like hair and beard and Conan-esque garb.  But the shield is there, albeit peppered with arrows.  The whole composition of the cover, from the languid pose of the supple elf-maiden to the hyper muscled orc (?) and Cap bring to mind the classic sword and sorcery art of Frank Frazetta and maybe even a little Boris Vallejo.

The whole cover is gleefully anachronistic, and I love it.  From the title font down to the brief cover pitch, it instantly conjures up the feel of the pulps of old.  Indeed, the original run of Amazing Fantasy (originally titled Amazing Adult Fantasy) harkens back to the post-pulp early ‘60s, and while primarily being famous for featuring the first ever appearance of Spider Man, had previously featured some excellent, weird and wonderful stories from Stan Lee, illustrated by Steve Ditko and Jack Kirby!

It is perhaps fitting then, that this new book contains not only numerous nods to Marvel history but also stars Spider Man alongside Captain America.  Joining them is Black Widow, or perhaps more accurately here, ‘red-room’ era Natasha Romanoff.  Kaare Andrews has elected to use World War II era Cap and teenage Spidey in this awesome story.

Aside from the letters and editor credits, this title is very much a one man show, and Kaare Andrews makes sure it is a seriously impressive show, at that.  The opening scenes of ‘Arrival’ show us Captain America on what seems to be an ocean-bound escort mission during WWII.  Disaster soon strikes and the Cap is transported to a strange new world, lit by twin suns and populated by fearsome beasts.

We then change pace, tone and art style to join a young Black Widow in the depths of the Red Room programme.  Soon after experiencing some of her harsh reality, we shift over to join everyone’s favourite webslinger, mid-fight with the Green Goblin, just before he is similarly whisked away to find himself in hot water surrounded by odd, misshapen creatures.

This whole book is a love letter not only to Marvel but also the many early pulp fantasy and science fiction stories which informed a lot of later entertainment.  Kaare Andrews uses his shifts in art style to take us from one era or scene to another, with changes in line work and colours very effectively charting a course through the chaos until our three protagonists all arrive in this strange new world.

As the action unfolds and builds towards the climactic closing pages, we are left with a sense of wonder and discovery but also with questions as to the exact nature of our heroes’ experiences.  Is it real, a shared dream, or something more… permanent?


Verdict


‘Arrival’ is a superb opening issue for this 5 book run.  The standard cover is worth the price of admission alone (there are a few nice variant covers around, too).  As a comic creator, Kaare Andrews is openly flexing here, showing off his considerable talents to bring us a tale worthy of that awesome cover and a gathering of some of Marvel’s most popular characters.  This one is highly recommended.  I can’t wait for issue 2!

The Amazing Spider-Man #71 Review

The most interesting part of the book is MJ and Mysterio taking a trip through each others history…


Review by Leo Brocklehurst 30/7/21

Written by:
Nick Spencer
Artwork by:
Federico Vicentini
Federico Sabbatini
Released 28/7/21 Published by Marvel Comics

SINISTER WAR CONTINUES!!!
Nick Spencer keeps the action on max whilst also giving us some character development, and at the SAME time, keeping us on edge as we see our side plots converging into one big, three year in the making, pay off.


The art (mostly done by Federico Vicentini) has been consistently good these past couple of issues, contributing to the books speedy pace with a cartoonish yet scratchy style. We also see a newcomer in the pages of this issue, Federico Sabbatini. Their art is more kid friendly than Vicentini’s and is reminiscent of the all ages books marvel released in the late 2000’s, not bad by any means however and serves it’s purpose.




The most interesting part of the book is MJ and Mysterio taking a trip through each others history, where we get to see some nice flashback art (by Vicentini). This scene includes some ret-conning when discussing MJ’s therapy in various points of Spidey history. The section culminates in Mysterio leaving MJ in a theatre in order to fulfil his “big scene” in the sinister war. Following this, MJ is approached by Kindred and we are left on a cliff-hanger.


The other plot running throughout this issue involves Harry Osborn (not kindred) and Carlie Cooper trapped in a cell at an unknown location. In this book, the door actually opens and they exit, being confronted by an unknown person or object. Amidst all this, Kindred, hides out in an abandoned ambulance, presumably the one he died in (Which begs the question, after he died in it, did they just leave it in the street? Looks that way in the issue.)


Verdict:

Issue 71 of Spencer’s Spider-man is a pretty solid and exciting read. It leaves the readers on the edge of their seats in anticipation for the next part of sinister war whilst deciding to focus on the supporting cast.

8/10

“And answers? Well, we’re ALL looking for those, aren’t we? (…) But we may not like what we find when we GET them”.

Spider-man’s latest fixture is a great book that excites and hypes you up for the next big event of Spider-ness. A perfect prelude with raising stakes and a theme of questions running throughout.

The writing by Nick Spencer is able to set the stage for a storyline that feels like it might actually shake things up for once. Hopefully rectifying Spencer’s biggest flaw in his Spidey run: the lack of change. As you read it, it flows great and is fine for fun little Spidey stories that you can relax to but in the big picture, not much has changed. Sure there have been SOME for sure as it’s almost impossible to go 70 issues without changing anything but it has been an incredibly slow rise. Beginning with Sinister war however, things are looking up for Spidey readers and this issue is evidence.

As I said before, the theme of this issue is one of questions. MJ wants answers for Carlie (who is locked away in a cell with Harry Osborn (double bracket whaaat???) in a place we’re not even sure is on earth at this rate) , Carlie wants answers for Harry, Doc Ock wants answers about things taken from him and Spider-man wants answers on just what is going on??
The lizard and Curt Connors have been separated and the sinister six have vanished, escalating worries around the city and on top of ALL of this, it looks like Mysterio is back in town!!

The art in this issue, done by Federico Vicentini has almost a smooth, manga like style and flow whilst also looking messy and rough. I thought it accompanied the fast pace of the book extremely well; rushing to the big BANG to kick it all off and I can’t wait to see how beat up Spidey gets this time around.


Verdict:

Spencer’s final story is about to explode into the stratosphere and this issue is drenched in pure anticipation and fast paced, action packed artwork that is sure to entice readers into Spidey’s biggest threat yet.

Released 24/3/21 Published By Marvel Comics

Spider-mans latest adventure is what you would expect of Nick Spencer, just more and more escalation leading up to the finale. In essence, it’s a cash grab so you can see the ad in the back for the giant sized one shot final parter, not a bad cash grab by any means, but a cash grab. The Spidey team decided to do this with the previous “kings ransom” storyline; an enjoyable story that doesn’t finish in its own book. Its a little annoying but that’s nothing to do with book itself.

The writing (scripted by spencer) is on point, witty and even funny in parts. (The smashing pumpkins joke in particular). The art shares the same rotating cast as last issue and like last issue, to varying degrees of success. Zé Carlos’ work shines especially, it reminds me of the spectacular Spider-man show in the way that it flows so nicely and feels quick and swift.

Carlos Gómez, is a great artist who is unfortunately given the most artistically boring arc of the book. Not to say that the Betty and Ned story is boring, it’s actually pretty interesting but I can’t really fathom it going anywhere except for them both leaving for some quiet place in Europe so that the two characters are taken cate of for a few years and don’t have to be brought back (granted, it would be cool if their baby turned out to be and evil , universe consuming God). The final artist, Marcelo Ferreira is very hit and miss and results in so-so  art that looks a little odd.

With almost all the negatives out of the way, the book is all in all pretty great. The most interesting plot line involving the clairvoyant features a great fight scene where Spidey actually gets his butt handed to him and the villains win. An interesting twist ensues in the form of the Jack o lanterns (along with most of the criminals in the foreigners crime filled casino) turning out to be working for the finisher. This finally ties the Theresa Parker side plot to the clairvoyants and will therefore provide us with a satisfying conclusion in “giant sized the Amazing Spider-man: the chameleon conspiracy” which is unfortunately a separate book and won’t be concluded in issue 70.

This issue was not a stand alone book. It fits perfectly into it’s story and will probably flow better once it’s collected on trade form. All in all, a solid continuation of recent issues that will be enjoyed by Spidey fans everywhere. Check it out!

Now that this fun little story is over, we will be returning to big picture, life shattering, sinister six filled action in next month’s SINISTER WAR……

This is the second part of the “chameleon conspiracy” so I wouldn’t advise readers to begin catching up on Spider-man with this issue, but if you’re a regular then this issue is better than its predecessor by a long shot.

Writer: Nick Spencer
Artists: Marcel Ferreira, Carlos Gomez and ZÈ Carlos

Released: 9/6/21
Published by: Marvel Comics

The latest instalment of Nick Spencer’s Spiderman run is a real treat for die-hard Spidey fans. The story is exciting and the artists (for the most part) provide excellent work to bring said story to life.

This is the second part of the “chameleon conspiracy” so I wouldn’t advise readers to begin catching up on Spider-man with this issue, but if you’re a regular then this issue is better than its predecessor by a long shot. Spencer continues a few of the plot threads from the previous issues like Betty Brant’s pregnancy and Teresa Parker’s run in with the chameleon and the finisher(?). The finisher being the man that was sent to assassinate Richard and Mary Parker, succeeded but died in the process, or so we thought. It makes for an intriguing mystery that I for one am seriously interested In solving.

 The artwork in this section done by Marcelo Ferreira is probably the weakest in the book, he also does a page or two of the peter/Betty plot line in which some very…. interesting facial expressions are depicted. The rest of the art for the Peter/Betty segment however, pencilled by Carlos Gómez looks great, particularly the hobgoblin splash page. And the reveal of (the real???) Ned Leeds was a surprise for sure!

The main chunk of the issue is a continuation of the clairvoyant plot that has been running for about 30 issues now which has taken centre stage in the past couple of issues, it follows Peter’s ESU partner, Jamie as he attempts to capture a device called the catalyst which will power another clairvoyant that villains Chance and the foreigner are blackmailing him to create. As the heist inside ESU begins in this issue, a welcome appearance from one of the most obscure spider-man villains is made. Slyde! Who made his first (and one of his only appearances) way back in AMS #272. The artwork in this portion, pencilled by ZÉ Carlos, is the best in the book, it looks youthful, fresh and electric. With plenty of poster worthy pin-ups. Of Spidey.

The issue wraps up with Spidey’s intervention in the heist being intercepted by Chance, foreigner and their pumpkin minions. After the main story, we get another tease for this summers upcoming Spidey event, sinister war. This issues back up portrays doc ock recruiting sandman with stellar as usual art by Mark Bagely. Building further anticipation for kindred final assault on our beloved hero. 

Verdict:

All in all, this issue is great, one of Spencer’s best issues since Ryan Ottley’s departure. Definitely a solid pick up with stellar art.

9/10
