Today is a day that comic book fans every where can be happy because it’s New Comic Book Day and while this week wasn’t as plentiful for me as previous weeks, I still found some great comics to check out including the one for today. Ever since Marvel Comics introduced the idea that there was a spider-verse, the idea of all the different versions of Spider-Man became endless. You have Spider-Gwen from Earth-65, Spider-Woman from Earth-982, Spider-Ham from Earth-8311, and a dude named Spider-Punk from Earth-138. I’m sorry, he prefers to be called Spider-Man from Earth-138, but back to my point. All of these different Spider-Men/Women had to unite to stop the Vampiric Inheritors from destroying their worlds. Now something fishy is going on as we present an new Marvel event entitled Spider-Geddon, but before we get there we have to check out Edge Of Spider-Geddon #1 which was written by Jed Mackay (Vault Of Spiders) and illustrated by Gerardo Sandoval (Guardians Of Infinity). In the first issue, we see Spider-Punk a.k.a. Hobie Brown taking of Thunderstrike by clicking him out of the club. Unfortunately during the event, he is confronted by a man claiming to be from the future named Kang The Conglomerator who wants to kidnap him and bring him to the future for his own personal gain.
I have to be honest in saying that I really like Spider-Punk, I mean Spider-Man from Earth-138. He’s different and he kind of fits my musical tastes overall and he ends a comic book with a Motorhead lyric. You can’t get anymore bad ass than that my friends and I am being real with everyone. I also have to be honest in saying that I love this version of the Hulk who pops in a cassette into a walkman and transforms into the Hulk which is different. Then instead of being Captain America, there is Captain Anarchy so this world is very metal/punk rock-ish if you ask me and that is bad ass. I’m not sure how much the story really has to do with a Spider-Geddon other than what Spider-Woman tells him, but I suppose they are building us up to that point with all these issues. I definitely enjoy the artwork in this comic, I think Gerardo always does a good job with all the issues I have read with him in it so you can expect some good work from him. This comic made me wish that they would do more with Spider-Punk than some of the other stuff because you don’t need three different Peter Parker stories out there in my opinion. Check out the comic which is out today and check out my grades below:
