    This is what you've been waiting for! The return of legendary artist Joe Madureira (X-Men, Battle Chasers) and fan-favorite Spidey writer Zeb Wells in a brand new, highly anticipated, monthly Spider-series that teams the wall-crawler up with some of the greatest heroes in the Marvel Universe. In our first issue, Spider-Man and Red Hulk take on a Moloid army during the New York Marathon! Stay safe until November because you'll want to be here!

    After a battle with A.I.M. with the Avengers, Spider-Man gets Red Hulk to help him return to New York. When they arrive, they find an army of moloids attacking during a marathon. While they try to protect the citizens and reclaim J. Jonah Jameson – who had been captured during the assault – a moloid summons a subterranean beast that devours Spider-Man and Red Hulk.

    Meanwhile, J. Jonah Jameson is taken to the new rulers of Subterranea, the Molans, who had captured and imprisoned the Mole Man.

If a braindead chimp was hammering out the script by seizing on a typewriter, I would still pick up this book if Joe Mad was the one penciling it. And have I ever mentioned how much I love that he doesn't use an inker? I think there are v...

    Maybe Spidey will get to say "Avengers, assemble" in this series 0

    Synopsis: Spider-Man teams up with Rulk. What's Good? What I noticed about the two Avengers books that Spider-Man is a part of is that he seems like a fifth wheel in both groups. He's the funny (annoying) guy that just pisses you off especially when the situation is serious (and the way both series has been so far, there have been some tense situations). But let's put it in Spidey's perspective. While he did some amazing things as a superhero, I can understand why he feels out of place with hero...

    Avenging Spider-ManIf you haven't seen the hype for this, then you've done the impressive.The GoodIt was enjoyable. The writing is light and the art is very stylish. Which is what the huge draw of this book is.The BadI'm actually very disappointed because for four bucks, I feel like I got nothing. Remember that free pamphlet you got a while ago about this book? Congratulations, that was half that book. It ends a few pages afterwards. Not only that, but the plot just ends a very little is accompl...
