So, the new Ultimate Spider-man will be making his (?) debut this week!
I really like the Ultimate Spider-man series... it's one of the only superhero books I still read. It's been written by the same guy (Brian M. Bendis) since it first launched back in 2000, and it's been so consistently enjoyable that whole time that I am willing to trust him when he does something as potentially infuriating as (supposedly) murdering and replacing his main character. I am excited to see who this new person behind the mask is, with their terrible homemade costume and goofy kneepads and apparent exhaustion after a single fight. (Are we getting a Spider-man with no powers? Is that where the black suit that they will eventually be wearing is going to come in?)
But even more than that, I'm just excited to see more Spider-man art from Sara Pichelli, who is going to draw the hell out of this book. You can see some of her art for the book in those two links above. (AKA: here and here.) Gorgeous!
Thanks for all the good health wishes over the weekend! I'm still not back at 100 percent yet, but I'm getting there. Come back on Wednesday for more exciting illness updates! (And also a new comic or something.)
