A solid conclusion to this miniseries. There's a full-page spread of Greg Land drawing 80's Marvel and I kid you not it's one of my favorite single page splashes. I'd love it as a poster.

Also, we're (hopefully) getting new Symbiote Spider-Man comics as teased in the end. Who's the villain gonna be? It's got the Knull symbol on the teaser, so maybe it's gonna be a tie-in to King in Blac more

Symbiote Spider-Man: Alien Reality #5

Thanks to the combined efforts of Nightmare, Dormammu and the Hobgoblin, the universe is fracturing like you’ve never seen before – REALITY ITSELF IS COLLAPSING! The team behind the original SYMBIOTE SPIDER-MAN series closes out the second volume with a BANG! You won’t want to miss this one!

I can't remember the last time I gave an issue of Nick Spencer's Spider-Man a 10/10. But oh my stars and garters this was SUCH a great read! To say that the art and writing were on point is an understatement.

The Death of Jean DeWolff is a top 5 Spider-Man story for me. If Spencer keeps up this momentum, we're about to have another classic Spider-Man story on our hands.

This is my first time ever stepping into the world of Wonder Woman and it's all because of the recent news of Mariko Tamaki winning the Eisner Award for Best Writer. I've never read anything by her before so this issue was completely new to me except for being familiar with the art team and the cover artist.

Wolverine #3

By: Ben Percy, Adam Kubert

WOLVERINE DIGS IN!
The Flower Cartel and the Pale Girl seem to be one step ahead of Wolverine, but he has a plan. It's a risky gamble that will take him into the heart of a larger criminal conspiracy even as it puts many mutant lives at risk.

THE WORST IS BACK!
Wolverine has never been one to back down from a fight - not even a combined assault from Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth and Doctor Cornelius - but the Flower Cartel might have enlisted his worst and greatest foe: Logan himself.

Plant people from outer space have come to Earth and, wouldn't you know it, they just happen to be here when millions of mutants rise as undead creatures hungry for human flesh. The X-Men return to Genosha in a tale so crazy, it's taking the entire writing crew of the X-Men line to tackle it!

This is a really dark comic and I'm completely here for it. There are two things I like most in my media, and those two things are horror and Spider-Man. We get mostly horror here, but Spider-Man does show up, albeit as a cracked, fucked up version of himself (And I don't mean because the writer wrote him poorly). This book calls back to the whole Sin-Eater saga, although as far as I'm aware, the more

Death of Jean DeWolff is one of the best Spider-Man stories ever and it's incredible that it's underrated. I recommend it to anyone looking for a good Spider-Man story. It's coming back to print in the "Spider-Man: Road to Venom" TPB.

If the tone of Sins Rising matches the tone of this issue and ASM #44, we're about to get one hell of an arc in Amazing Spider-Man. Nick Spencer is about to peak here and I'm very much looking forward to it, Kindred or not.

Dark Spider-Man stories are excellent Spider-Man stories (if done in moderation and not repeatedly.

After nine issues of prelude, we are finally in for Joker War.

As someone who didn't like Punchline's origin and thinks that she is overhyped, I gotta say Tynion really let her shine in this opening chapter.

This was a lot of fun! I'm really digging Schiti's art and Ewing's writing for the characters: especially Tony's. Looking forward to the rest of the event!

If Ewing and Slott can keep this up, it would be a great continuing hot streak for Marvel events. War of the Realms, HOX/POX, and Absolute Carnage have all been hits.

Wow this issue was frightening. We do get to see more of Kindred in here as well as a taste of what Sin-Eater has in store for Sins Rising next issue. I have a feeling Nick Spencer will knock it out of the park
