This week’s picks feature the return of some notable (and infamous) heroes, two special celebration issues, and a brand new crime drama, further showcasing the variety available at any comic book shop in your neck of the woods.
For those that missed the comics the first time around (and don’t want to take out a second mortgage to buy all of the original issues) or just want to relive some of Spidey’s best stories, October’s Amazing Spider-Man: The Death of Gwen Stacy Epic Collection will help you scratch that Spider-bite itch.
This week’s picks represent a number of genres and creators, showcasing the diversity and varied choices available at your local comic shop.
The omnibus collects the entire run (as well as some fill-in issues by artists Collen Doran and Erik Larsen) contained in issue #296-329 of Amazing Spider-Man and material from Amazing Spider-Man Annual #10.
Amazing Spider-Man #75 this October will indeed bring back the original (and much maligned) clone of Peter Parker, Ben Reilly, and it certainly appears that he will be wearing the suit for the time being.
Amazing Spider-Man will expand to a thrice-monthly title and it appears that Ben Reilly will put on the costume again, making fans wonder: Where’s Peter?
