Catwoman (2018)

The wedding night's barely over, but Catwoman's back on the streets, this time to expose a copycat who's pulling heists around Gotham City. As Selina cracks the whip on her former criminal cohorts, she's attracting unwanted attention from one of Gotham's most dangerous groups. The mob? Nope. Try the GCPD.

Farmhand #1

By: Rob Guillory
Released: Jul 11, 2018

Jedidiah Jenkins is a farmer-but his cash crop isn't corn or soy. Jed grows fast-healing, plug-and-play human organs. Lose a finger? Need a new liver? He's got you covered. Unfortunately, strange produce isn't the only thing Jed's got buried. Deep in the soil of the Jenkins Family Farm, something dark has taken root, and it's beginning to bloom.

This managed to rekindle my love for Spider-Man, which I thought it had been lost forever. I love the art and the Todd Mcfarlane era costume look, I love that MJ is back and I love that it seems we're getting soft "reboot" for Peter Parker to clean up all the clutter that just didn't make sense.
