The Scarlet Spider went to the Houston Livestock show and rodeo. It was kind of cool. The book continues, after a year and four months (that is not bad in today’s market). So far, the book seems to be standing on its own for the most part (I think there was a four part cross-over with Venom). I like the recap page, it is pretty concise.
Avengers does read a little better in hardcover collection than as individual issues. I still think the cast is too large. I still think Sunspot and Cannonball aren’t getting adequate screen time (or page time ). I think Wolverine and Spider-man could have been left off the expanded roster. (No offense but I am not sure why Wolverine remains so popular.) It is nice to see Shang Chi, the master of kung fu. Maybe I’ll pick up the second hardcover collection.
Archie Comics/Red Circle Comics is bringing back the Fox. The Fox is a hero with a long history, going back to the 1940s. Mark Waid is writing the new series. (He’s a busy guy.) I am not sure what the plan for the new series is but it is nice to see Archie/Red Circle comics publishing more superhero comics.
