“Secret Wars” finally calls it quits this month… just in time for Marvel’s confusing-sounding follow-up books to the whole thing.

The Hulk gets yet another new title, this time with Amadeus Cho becoming (somehow) the Hulk. Much was made in the press (both comics and non-comics) of this book starring and being written by a Korean-American.

“Spidey” is a new title set during Peter Parker’s early days as Spider-Man. Yes, it’s yet another Spider-book set during Peter’s high school years, which must be awfully crowded events-wise by this point, especially at the famed spider-bite scene. That said, I enjoyed Kurt Busiek’s old 90s title “Untold Tales of Spider-Man.”

There’s a metric ton of “Star Wars” comics, timed for the release this Christmas of “The Force Awakens.” This includes the top-10-selling Lando Calrissian comic, of course. Between the movie’s hype likely reaching lower-Earth-orbit in December, I wouldn’t be surprised if December’s comic sales show the “Star Wars” books doing even better than usual.
