In an era where Marvel and DC are spending most of their time and resources duking it out for supremacy at the box office, it may be hard to believe that it wasn’t that long ago the Big Two had quite a run of crossovers between their respective super hero universes.
The 90’s gave rise to crossovers such as Batman/Daredevil, Batman/Punisher, Batman/Captain America, Batman/Spider-Man…hmm…I guess they should more accurately be called Marvel and Batman crossovers.
Prior to that 90’s boom however, the crossing over of characters between the two companies was few and far between. After the break we’ll look at two of those starring the two companies biggest hitters (apologies to Batman): Superman and Spider-Man.
As usual, spoilers follow from here on out if you’ve missed out on the last 50 years of Spider-Man and are just getting started.

For a character that’s been dead since 1973 and outside of some clone shenanigans has never been resurrected, Gwen Stacy sure is popular these days. Probably much to known hater Tom Kelly’s chagrin, Gwen just launched a second title that she is headlining. After the break, a brief history of Gwen and a look (with possible spoilers) at Unbelievable Gwenpool #1.

The latest issue of the Amazing
Iron Man Spider-Man hit store shelves (for Jenny) and digitally for everyone else today. (How many of you guys still read the majority of your books that are made from dead trees?) Let’s take a look at it, and the post-Secret Wars Spider-Man in general after the break. Careful, this way be spoilers.

I think I’ve read every appearance of Miles Morales. I’m working on reading every appearance of Peter Parker. But now that the Ultimate and 616 universes have been blended together, it brings up some questions. More on this and Spider-Man #3 (with spoilers) after the break.

If you’ve spent any amount of time reading articles at Gabbing Geek then you probably know I may have an unhealthy obsession with Spider-Man. So it only seems fitting that for my (at long last!) final Secret Wars post, it would be Spidey related.
After the break a continuation of the Spider-Island story line with the usual twist on the ending, “what if Spider-Man hadn’t saved the day?”

We’ve known for quite some time that Miles Morales would be spinning his webs in the Prime Marvel Universe after the events of Secret Wars and the destruction of the Ultimate Universe. In fact, Miles has been swinging around his new universe for a while now, having made appearances in other books, namely All-New All-Different Avengers for the past 3 months.
Which brings us to today’s release of Spider-Man #1. Marvel has been staggering their new releases post Secret Wars for many reasons. One, though they will downplay it as much as possible, the lengthy delays of Secret Wars itself. Two, they wanted to spread their new number ones out so that they weren’t clobbering each other ala DC’s New 52 (and it looks like their upcoming
Reboot Rebirth project.) But third, and maybe most inportantly for this book, they wanted to get the band back together. What I mean by that is Spider-Man #1 sees the reunion of Miles creators Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli.
As for the issue itself, I found it a bit uneven. If you are a fan of Miles you will likely be happy with it, but several aspects of it came off a bit strange to me. I’ll dive into them more after the cut as things will get a bit spoilery.

This morning I briefly wrote about the death of the Ultimate Comics Spider-Man and this afternoon I stumbled upon this awesome fan made motion comic that covers the storyline from Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #158-160 from 2011. I personally didn’t love the story, but this motion comic is quite awesome. Watch it after the break.

I thought I saw last week that Marvel’s “Dead No More” teaser was in relation to the return of Steve Rogers as Captain America. Which made no sense, so I’m glad that whatever I thought I saw was wrong.
Marvel has released a new teaser that you can see above and it is very clear that we are looking for something in the Spider-Man camp of titles. But who? Some speculation after the cut.

Way back in the middle of July I reviewed Civil War #1. Six months and 4 issues later I’ll finally look at Civil War #2-5 after the break. The series was a bit of a mixed bag starting off but unlike many of the Secret Wars series, really finished strong. It is currently ranked 12th in our nearly completed Secret Wars Power Rankings.

Well, the day is finally here. The last issue of Secret Wars is finally in our grubby little hands or sitting digitally on our computers, tablets or other electronic devices. It’s been a long time coming. I’ll look at the finale in all its spoiler-y glory after the cut.
Unfortunately for me (and probably for you), this is not my last Secret Wars post. I still have some odds and ends to finish up my walkthrough, namely twenty or so issues that I haven’t covered. (Excluding the Toys R Us exclusive giveaway Armor Wars #0.5…which I couldn’t find a copy of first or last.)
