ASTONISHING ANT-MAN #8

(W) Nick Spencer (A) Brent Schoonover (CA) Julian Totino Tedesco

• It's the Superior Foes of Ant-Man!

• Scott's weird new rogues gallery has a new job-- thanks to the dastardly Power Broker and his HENCH app.

• Why is it so dastardly? It keeps crashing! Hate when apps do that.

Rated T+

Item Code: MAR160771 In Shops: 5/18/2016 SRP: $3.99

I like how they made Scott the Saul Goodman of the marvel universe.

@g-man, I heard that they shuffled some of the release dates of both King Kong Universe as well as DCEU, I am waiting for a comicvine article addressing this change...

This is one of Marvels best books currently.

I recognize Whirlwind, Trapster, and Beetle of course, but who are the other guys?

@darkmount1: that's Highjacker not Trapster. The others are Voice and the Magician

This in my opinion is the second worst book I'm currently following from Marvel. The first is Starlord. Estranged wife,estranged girlfriend,estranged daughter on and on with no Antman action.Even the panels being shown have people standing around just talking.I was hoping to stick around till the next restart but I don't see the point to this plotless,action less bore.

Wow, I feel like I must have been reading a different Astonishing Ant-Man series all this time, because this book never fails to entertain me. I think it delivers a pretty balanced mix of humor, serious plot elements, and action.

Did this book time travel to the 60's. The costumes are so bad. (Not Ant-Man's)

@ready_4_madness: that's most lik=ly the pount. They're trying to play up the goofiness angle. The author also has a healthy love for goofy old designs. I d prefer an update though.

@avenging_x_bolt: ehh not my personal style but I get why it'd appeal to someone. I just find it hilarious somewhere in the Marvel Universe there's these really old fashioned looking guys.

@ready_4_madness: I get you. I actually liked the suit Whirlwind had during Marvel Now
