Solicitation: Silver Sable comes back into Spider-Man’s life… but isn’t she dead? Norman Osborn has worked his way into a position of power in Symkaria, and any incursion by Spider-Man will be seen as an act of war. Will Spider-Man risk international infamy to take down his most dangerous foe?

Review

Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #26Striking with a classic villain, Norman Osborn (The Green Goblin) has returned!

Norman has been working underground selling weapons and arms to the highest bidder and he has interrupted a Parker Industries event to do just that. Spider-Man intervenes with the help of the back from the grave Silver Sable to try to stop the madman.

There are some great Spidey quips in this issue and the fast pace of an action adventure movie. The issue ends with Peter Parker going all out and planning to attack the Goblin in Symkaria, his base of operations and Silver Sable’s homeland.

Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #26 artThis information, subtly supplied to S.H.I.E.L.D. by the Superior Octopus, has caused the organization to cut all ties with Parker and in a surprise ending twist, now puts SHIELD and Parker Industries against one another.

What is in store for our hero in the next issues? Is Parker Industries on the road to ruin? Will the Green Goblin destroy Spider-Man and all that he has built? Well, we can only know by picking up the next issue which is a for sure thing to do because it is an interesting and entertaining story.

The Amazing Spider-man hasn’t disappointed yet!

Verdict: Amazing Spider-Man (2015) #260
4.5 out of 5 stars

Solicitation: Storm and her extraordinary X-Men come to Yancy Street – hope they survive the experience! Lunella Lafayette, a.k.a. Moon Girl, is finally getting the attention she deserves as the smartest in the world… but not all of it’s good, especially when it comes from Victor Von Doom!

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #17 Review

Normally, I am not a fan of the Moon Girl comic, but I wanted to give issue #17 a try for one reason alone – it guest stars the X-Men.

Art from Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #17For those not familiar, Moon Girl, AKA Lunella Lafayette, is an Inhuman with the power to switch consciousnesses with Devil Dinosaur; it’s the Freaky Friday of the Marvel Universe!

Lunella has a genius level intellect and has been said to be the smartest person in the Marvel U. Also, she is an inventor on the level of Forge, although most of her inventions look like they came from Data of the Goonies.

In Issue #17, The X-men and Moon Girl travel to one of Forge’s abandoned hideouts (in a record store in a mall of all places) to find an older, duplicate version of Cerebro – which Forge is going to give to Moon Girl. Moon Girl’s trying to track down Dr. Doom and wants to combine her Omni-Wave Projector with Cerebro to track him down.

After combining the two, she accidentally transfers the X-Men back to the 80’s. Not only have they been transported in time, but their costumes and overall looks also change to that of the time period, with Wolverine in his brown costume and Storm in leather and a mohawk.

Verdict: Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #17

As an X-Man fan, then this will be a treat for you. Its a fun blast from the past with a little nostalgia. But, as a series, I have yet to be sold on it.
