ANT-MAN #5

(W) Nick Spencer (A) Ramon Rosanas (CA) Mark Brooks

• The explosive first arc finale! There aren't actually any explosions - but there IS a big showdown with our poorly lit villain, and plenty of heartbreak to go around.

• Nothing will be the same again! Except you're still aging. That's not going anywhere.

Nothing would please me more than if this series got a nice, long run with quality consistent with what we've seen so far.

I kind of agree, but from one way of looking at it, Marvel must agree too. The fact that he's getting his own movie increases how popular he has a chance of being, so in a way the movie (and even the ads for the movie) are kind of promotion for him getting his own comic.

Obviously the movie will make them more money, but they must realize that the movies' strengths are largely drawn from having a wealth of source material. Really both the movies and the comics (as well as the cartoons, tv shows, etc) are promotion for the other.

And considering that Ant-man hasn't ever had his own cartoon or tv show to make him more well known outside of comics (as Cap', Thor, Hulk, Iron Man, Spider-man, the X-men, and the FF have), I just think it's great he's finally getting some mainstream attention.

That the movies are more popular than the comics isn't a bad thing; more people like movies than read comics is all. But Ant-man is a great character, and I agree that he deserves to be in good stories -regardless of what medium those stories are told in.
