SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN #1DELIVERS AN EDGY, IN-YOUR-FACE LOOK AT THE VILLAINS OF SPIDEY-OCK FROM "BEDLAM" & "MORNING GLORIES" Writer NICK SPENCER
A Must for fans of the current run of HAWKEYE!
Folks: I know you may be thinking to yourself -- how cool can a book starring the Shocker, Boomerang, and the Beetle really be?
My answer to you? PRETTY FREAKIN' AWESOME! This first issue blew us away, with it's fresh, and innovative tone, combining the sharp writing of IMAGE favorite NICK SPENCER (BEDLAM, MORNING GLORIES) and the stunning, avant garde art stylings of STEVE LIEBER.
It's very reminiscent of Fraction and Aja's work on HAWKEYE, with it's slick artwork, and quirky storytelling, and we loved every second of it.
So, what's the scoop on this new ongoing series? Boomerang and a crew of Superior Spider-Man's deadliest foes have decided to prove that with terrible powers come terrible responsibilities.
A book solely focusing on these often-frustrated, sometimes downtrodden supervillains who yearn for the same kind of fame, respect, and infamy that the likes of Kraven the Hunter, Green Goblin, and others have earned. SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN is a really fresh, and interesting look at the concept of super-villains in the Marvel Universe, and the inclusion of the Superior Spider-Man angle has us hooked, as we've been really digging the series.
Great art, great storytelling, folks, do yourselves a favor, and make sure you give this one a shot this week at Third Eye!

Imagine if the Green Lantern was Dexter Morgan --- meet the world's first superhero serial murderer in ABSOLUTION: RUBICON #1 this Wednesday
In the future, superhuman abilities have become a fact of life, and in response, special divisions of the city police departments have been put together to deal with superpowers -- and get this, they're staffed by superhuman police officers.
Just like any other law enforcement official, they have to worry about lawsuits, career politics, and a code of ethics that governs how their justice is served up.
John Dusk has stepped outside of that code of ethics, and he likes it.
After reaching his breaking point, Dusk committed a string of vigilante murders -- becoming judge, jury and executioner for a number of scumbag criminals.
Now, after his public fall from grace, every scumbag lawyer in the city is leading the charge to have the criminals he put away released from prison.
But the thugs are finding that life behind bars is safer than facing Dusk's brand of permanent justice on the streets.
As the bodycount rises, the former friends and loves of Dusk's life face the difficult challenge of trying to bring in one of their own.
With a bounty on his head and pressure mounting for his arrest, the authorities take an insane chance by unleashing an unstoppable maniac to take him down.
But sometimes the cure can be far worse than the disease.
A great, cutting-edge take on vigilantism, ABSOLUTION is published by AVATAR PRESS, who've done great no-holds-barred horror series like CROSSED and NEONOMICON, which means they're not afraid to push the envelope.

Image's Supernatural Hit-Man Epic TEN GRAND continues this Wednesday with TEN GRAND #3!
We are loving TEN GRAND, from comics legend J. Michael Straczynski (MIDNIGHT NATION, SUPREME POWER, SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, RISING STARS) and Ben Templesmith (FELL, 30 DAYS OF NIGHT).
Focusing on a hitman who finds him and his wife meeting an untimely demise, which will separate them forever unless he seeks redemption; TEN GRAND is a killer concept with a perfect execution.
Joe's done too much bad to join his wife in heaven, but the angels will allow him 5 minutes with her for every otherworldly nasty that Joe hunts down and takes out for them.
Now, in #3, Joe Fitzgerald's client is dead. The young woman he went searching for on her behalf is dead. And he's not happy about it. Worse still, someone's shaking the foundations of Heaven, in a move putting the spirit of his beloved Laura in jeopardy.
Someone's going to pay for it -- even if it means walking into Hell itself.
Wanna hop onboard? We've got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to get you current!
NEW AVENGERS VOL.1 EVERYTHING DIES NOW REUNITES THE ILLUMINATI FROM "EAST OF WEST" & "INFINITY" Writer JONATHAN HICKMAN
We don't have to go into detail about how much we like Jonathan Hickman's stuff, Third Eye Faithful, 'cause let's be real: you already know this.
But, we will say this: Epting has made NEW AVENGERS a must-read once again, with a crazy awesome conspiracy-heavy story reuniting the Marvel Illuminati.
In NEW AVENGERS: EVERYTHING DIES, to prevent the collision of our universe with another, the Illuminati must reassemble.
It's the most powerful and brilliant team in the Marvel Universe: the Black Panther, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Mister Fantastic, Namor the Sub-Mariner and the Beast against an infinite legion of parallel realities.
Armed with the six Infinity Gems, the Illuminati gather to plan for the death of everything.. but their task is complicated by old wounds, lies, and secret agendas.
But when the Illuminati experience their first dimensional incursion, can this loose brotherhood of end times trust each other enough to use the Infinity Gems in unison?
A must-read, as one of our favorites in the MARVEL NOW, and a great primer for the upcoming INFINITY event.
