We may have lost She-Hulk recently, but Marvel is still intent on giving us engaging female-led books, and that's a very good thing. This week, I take a look at 4 such new titles, or really, 3 + a new direction for a title that was already very new. Coming off the Spider-Verse event, three of these are Spider-related; the other doesn't take place in the Marvel Multiverse, but in a franchise far, far away. Let's start there...
Recommended? I know some are still smarting from Dark Horse losing the license, but Marvel really is putting its best foot forward on these series, with big names at the helm, fun stories, and nice art.
Recommended? I wonder how long a book that doesn't take place on Earth-616 can last, or if it'll all be jettisoned by Secret Wars anyway, but what's here certainly packs enough entertainment for this reader.
Recommended? I confess Silk had potential, but didn't necessarily interest me on an iconic level. Unlike, say, Spider-Gwen. But it's definitely the book I prefer of the two. Give it a shot.
Recommended? If you like cool superhero comics with well-balanced elements of comedy, mystery and action, this is the book for you. I hope the Spider-Verse issues didn't sink its chances for survival.
Hm. Looking back I hope you like spiders as much I do.
