3-page preview: Spider-Men #3 – sort of…


[nggallery id=86]

Marvel Comics Friday afternoon released a three-page preview of Spider-Men #3 written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Sara Pichelli. The problem with the preview is some of the panels are blackout till you read Spider-Men #2. No one wants spoilers but it seems like a have hearted effort by Marvel Comics. Also, the Comic Vault is waiting to review Spider-Men till something happens because the first issue is just a very long setup. Bendis is great at witty banter but could use some help with the pacing. With that said, Marvel loaded the press release with quotes from other comic book website and I feel like I read a different book.
The Comic Vault would like your opinion of what you thought of the first issue of Spider-Men #1.

“With well-judged pace and tone, it’s everything a Spider-Man fan could want.” – ComicBookResources.com

“A fine comic book that is spilling with the same charm that we get from Ultimate Comics Spider-Man each and every month.” – IGN.com

“…there isn’t a single panel that feels static.” – AintItCoolNews.com

“A purely enjoyable comic book, and three cheers if that continues through to the end.” – Comicsbeat.com

New DCU Earth Two images : Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman

DC Comics Friday afternoon released a variant cover by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado of Earth Two #1 written by James Robinson. Earth Two #1 will be in your local comic book store in May.

From DC the Source:

We recently announced DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 “Second Wave,” featuring six new series coming in May. With an entire parallel world to explore in EARTH 2, writer James Robinson expands the scope of the storytelling potential in DC COMICS-THE NEW 52. There are new characters, new enemies and new conflicts – but for now, Robinson’s keeping the details under wraps.

“I’m excited and eager to let people know all the facts about the new EARTH 2 comic, but for now I have to remain vague,” teased Robinson. “Earth 2 is a world that’s very like our own, but at the same time vastly different. It has known great conflict and danger…a dark menace defeated but at a great cost both to the Earth and to its superheroes of that time. Now, in the present as new menaces emerge to attack the Earth, so new heroes must emerge too, learning to work as a team (or perhaps Society is a better word) while facing these new threats head-on. Who are these heroes? Will their powers include speed, bestial fury, and maybe even green light? Wait and see.”
