DF REVIEW: EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #209/18/14 @ 8:13 am EST
Prepare for the biggest Spider-Man event of all-time as every Spider-Man from every universe unites to stop a threat that could spell extinction for their kind! Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #5
– the final chapter in the blockbuster 5-issue mini-series showcasing different Spider-Men (and women) of the Spider-Verse! Eisner Award-winning writer Gerard Way (Umbrella Academy
) makes his Marvel debut alongside rising star artist Jake Wyatt for a Spider-Man tale unlike any other!
“In a futurist city fairly different from the New York we are familiar with, our version of Spider-Man takes the shape of a government project: SP//dr
,” says Gerard Way. “SP//dr is comprised of three vital components: a pilot, a machine, and a radioactive sentient spider acting as one half of the brain that makes it all work. Peni Parker is a young girl, who, left parentless, is adopted by her Aunt May and Uncle Ben, the two heads of the SP//dr project. When they realize Peni is the only one who can successfully pair with SP//dr, they make the unorthodox decision to train her as SP//dr's newest pilot.”
As Peni Parker suits up in her incredible spider-powered armor, explore the incredible new universe she inhabits. Yet even though, she pilots her unstoppable machine, it still may not be enough to save her universe from the onslaught of Morlun.
Edge of Spider-Verse concludes in grand fashion this October as Way & Wyatt take you to an incredible new universe in EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #5
Plus, don’t miss out on these exciting Edge of Spider-Verse
tie-in issues of your favorite ongoing series:

By BYRON BREWERDC COMICS TO RUSH-PUBLISH REPRINT OF CONSTANTINE #1 AND HELLBLAZER #1 FOR A DOLLAR09/18/14 @ 4:08 am EST
For some characters like Mar-Vell, Jean Grey, Bucky Barnes once, and yes, Spidey’s former squeeze Gwen Stacy, their best moment in comics was their deaths.
Not anymore … at least for one alternate world’s Gwen Stacy.
She is now your friendly neighborhood Spider-Woman!
Yes, Edge of Spider-Verse
#2 is what #1 SHOULD have been: a jazzy, self-contained, rollicking story that shows who this character is and why she/he deserves to be counted among the combatants of the upcoming “Spider-Verse” event.
Peter Parker of this Earth shows up for barely a splash page in Jason Latour and Robbi Rodriguez’s stunningly personal tale of how Gwen got her spider-powers, how it affects her life, and how many of the familiar characters gather around her to spin a whole new web around the Spidey mythos.
By the time the true story begins, we as readers are so invested in this world it is hard to believe this book has NOT been around since the 1960s. Who knew that Gwen would make such a wonderful, entertaining and fun heroine? Well, I guess Latour!
Seriously, both the super-heroics and the personal side of Gwen (always the heart of a Spidey story) showed in this mag are involving, from our protagonist’s role as percussionist in MJ’s band to the lithe figure of her beautifully-designed costumed self sliding down the concrete canyons.
I cannot praise the art of Rodriguez and the colors of Rico Renzi enough. They create a totally different world for Gwen, and their storytelling ability is no more powerful than in the tense confrontation between Spider-Woman and her father, Captain Stacy.
Now THIS is the Spider-Woman I want to read about. Ongoing, please?

RUMBLE MEANS WAR09/17/14 @ 10:37 pm EST
Marvel Studios is moving quickly with its plans for a Doctor Strange movie, with multiple sources this week reporting the studio plans to begin filming at Pinewood Studios in the U.K.
Both Screen Daily and The Hollywood Reporter have reported that Marvel is in final negotiations to shoot the movie at Pinewood’s Shepperton Studios, the same studio where scenes from Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor: The Dark World, X-Men: First Class and Captain America were shot.
Oh, and Star Wars VII is currently shooting there.

BUILD UP YOUR VARIANT COLLECTION WITH MARVEL ROCKET RACOON & GROOT VARIANTS09/17/14 @ 10:10 pm EST
Co-creators John Arcudi (writer of BPRD, Savage Wolverine, A god Somewhere and the Eisner-nominated The Creep) and James Harren (artist on Conan, BPRD, and cover artist for the Hawkeye vs. Deadpool) team up once again for the launch of an epic and bizarre action/adventure series filled with fantasy and page-turning thrills arriving on December 17.
In RUMBLE, a scarecrow—a warrior scarecrow god called Rathraq, that is—walks into a bar...and it’s all downhill from there. After a long absence, Rathraq is back and very unhappy. This is bad news for his old enemies, yes, but even worse news for everyone else, including bartender Bobby LaRosa who finds himself caught in the chaos.
RUMBLE is an eclectic mix of tone and genre, something that Arcudi commented on as adding depth and a dose of reality to the story. “Rumble is not just fantasy, not just action, not just drama, or not just humorous, you know? That’s too limiting. That’s not how we live. You wake up happy, then something happens that messes up your whole day (of course, in the case of Rumble, that ‘something’ just so happens to be a giant sword-wielding scarecrow and some monsters), but you still manage to have a laugh that night. What I like about this book is that any character can have a day like that. Any of them, human and non-human."
Arcudi also cited Harren’s flexibility in art styles as allowing for smooth transitions throughout RUMBLE. “James’s art allows us to go in all the directions the story needs to go. Nobody draws ferocious action the way James does. Monsters smashing each other’s heads in, that’s in the book, and James kills on it! But he also can set a spooky mood, and while his idea of what’s ‘funny’ is rather bizarre, that’s exactly what the book needs!”
The characters of RUMBLE must adapt along with the readers and will go through various transformations along the way. Arcudi added: “What I hope will be entertaining to readers is Bartender Bobby’s unique way of adapting to his new and rapidly changing world. That’s also true of Rathraq, the warrior scarecrow. He has to adapt to his new world as well, but in a very different way and for very different reasons. From those kinds of perspectives grow all kinds of interesting plot lines and stories! And they’re just two of the many characters we’ll be playing with.”
RUMBLE is a modern-day action fantasy series where rundown dive bars, undead kitty cats, psycho skinheads, and giant mummies run amok. RUMBLE #1 will be available on 12/17, and can be pre-ordered with Diamond Code OCT140580.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN – YOUR NEW LOOK AT DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #109/17/14 @ 1:09 pm EST
Digger Harkness / Captain Boomerang is one of the most popular members of The Flash’s Rogues Gallery… and he’s also one of the members of the Suicide Squad which is part of the Arrow series which is where he’s going to make his debut.
And the casting director on Arrow seems to love former Spartacus stars – Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Amanda Waller) and Katrina Law (Nyssa Raatko al Ghul) – so it’s not surprising that they’ve gone to the well once more to get Nick Tarabay.
Harkness is slated to appear in Episodes 7 and 8 of Arrow with Episode 8 being a crossover with The Flash.

From the ashes of Death of Wolverine
comes a new beginning.
Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #1
, the first issue in a blockbuster 7-issue limited series aiming to explore the gaping hole left in the Marvel Universe following the death of one of its most prominent super heroes. Written by superstar writer Charles Soule with art by Oliver Nome, this epic first issue, setting the stage for a world without Wolverine!
Each issue of Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy
features a hot new creative team made up of some of the industry’s brightest rising stars as they explore the unique solo adventures of X-23
, Lady Deathstrike
“Think of the death of Wolverine as an inciting event, one thing that has seismic-level effects on the lives of a great deal of the Marvel Universe,” says Charles Soule. “We’ll start in Death of Wolverine: The Logan Legacy
by examining those effects on people close to Wolverine, but over time, we’ll range far and wide to see what sort of black hole Logan’s death actually leaves.”
With the mutant powerhouse now out of the picture, who or what will be left to pick up the pieces? Will Wolverine’s legacy be shaped by heroes who valiantly fought alongside him…or by the villains who he spent his whole life protecting the world against? The answers will be revealed this October when the Marvel Universe faces a world without Wolverine in DEATH OF WOLVERINE: THE LOGAN LEGACY #1
