FIRST IMPRESSIONS FOR MAY 2018
Amazing Spider-Man #1 
Perfect jumping-on point with a new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1 that’s going back to basics from Nick Spencer!
“An alien invasion hits New York City and the only one who can stop it is…Spider-Man? But that’s far from all you’ll find here – a revelation from the past puts Peter Parker’s job, relationships, and whole life in jeopardy. And if even that’s not enough, you’ll see a new roommate, new love interests – and a new villain. Spider-Man goes back to basics courtesy of Nick Spencer (SECRET EMPIRE, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN) and the Marvel debut of RYAN OTTLEY (Invincible). ”
This maxi-series will be popular. Throw a hint of sensuality into an anthropomorphic comic book, and fans will faun [sic] all over it. Just sayin’.
“Leslie is a simple pig girl. She loves sushi, she’s stuck with a job she hates, and she lives under a brutal totalitarian government-one that punishes transgressors for anything deemed ‘unnatural.’ Leslie dreams of something different for herself. But those dreams are becoming dangerous… This Italian hit series by MIRKA ANDOLFO (Wonder Woman, Harley Quinn, DC Comics Bombshells) will transport you into a colorful but terrible world-full of anthropomorphic creatures, but light on personal freedoms-by way of a breathtaking plot that travels between thriller and fantasy, with a hint of sensuality.”
Star Wars #50
Landmark anniversary issue with an intriguing plot tease!
“IN THIS ISSUE…HOPE DIES. The REBEL FLEET is completed. It’s magnificent. It’s beautiful. It’s secret. But no secret is kept for long from DARTH VADER. The most epic story yet done in a STAR WARS comic begins here. Prepare to witness the Empire TRULY strike back.”
