Comments

Unlike DC, Marvel’s putting out a full-fledged holiday special this year (well, reprints of some previous series). Though I highly doubt it’ll be rated “T+”, the same rating Newsarama lists for Marvel Adventures Spidey… huh?! Though “Wolverine plays ice hockey” sounds like it’d be amusing…

Magneto appears in this month’s “Marvel Adventures Spider-Man,” while the Hulk is in “Super Heroes.”

An omnibus edition that finally collects “Untold Tales of Spider-Man” (a 90s series by Kurt Busiek that took place during Spidey’s earliest comics) is coming out. While I’ve wanted to see the whole run collected (which I don’t believe it has), $100 for an 800-page(!) book *might* not be something I can exactly swing…
