The Black Widow, Hellraiser, JJ Abrams, and More!
This week has been crazy so I threw this together while riding on the train. Look for something special coming from myself and CBSI writer Jason Shaw soon.
Also be warned there is one Spider-man Far From Home
First comic work by JJ Abrams
The man behind some of the best shows and movies Hollywood has to offer is writing a Spider-Man comic. Well it isn't the first time he has taken a crack at writing them. His first work goes all the way back to this rare con exclusive!
Wizard Magazine 90 ( must include the Marvel Knights Wave 2 Special )
Yelena Belova is hot, hot , hot! IF you want her first cover appearance in a comic her designs were published here. Wizard included a wave 2 MK supplement.
Ultimate Fantastic Four 23 ( Cameo Zombie Iron Man ) & Marvel Zombies 2 ( First cover and first full Zombie Iron Man )
There appears to be a homage to Marvel Zombies in Spider-Man's new flick. The Marvel Zombie Universe first appeared in issue 21 but Iron Man ( Zombies ) did not appear until issue 23.
So Hellraiser is going to get that show, issue 1 will so be tough to find but if you are a foreign fan like me there is a badass Italian reprint from October 1990 that collects issue 1 of both Epic's Hellraiser and Night Breed 1 ( also getting adapted )
I kinda dig the cover to CSN 1229 too!
Here's a Star Wars deep cut, Holowan Mechanicals ( creator of IG-88 ) is set to play a big role in the upcoming Mandalorian TV show. This is the first time they were identified and pictured. Find a comic appearance you are a better digger than me, if so hit me up I will trade you a random speculative tidbit I have mentioned nowhere else!
Thanks to some renewed interest in Weapon X, this heavily printed Wolvie key has seen increased sales. Thanks to that print run I would look for a newsstand in high grade. I know I say that a lot but for a book like this it is the only way to go.
And here are my cover pics of the week. The return of Journey wasn't exactly a resounding success but it did produce these two, a sick Shang-Chi cover and a final issue that is not easy to find.
and finally there is this. Some covers just make you stop in your tracks. I noticed this one and realized it has everything, a blade reflection, ominous shadows, pigtails on a pregnant chick and no fear.
