Joeyspidey’s Quick Picks for week of 3/11/15
March 17, 2015 By Joe Solomon
Comics for the last month have been pretty boring. With Spider-Verse winding down, there aren’t a lot of exciting stories left. But my boredom this week was smashed by two comics guest starring two different version of the Hulk. So buckle up, and absorb some gamma radiation, because the Hulk is about to smash your reading ability.
2) Spider-Man 2099 #10
This is the second part of Peter David’s story about Spider-Mann 2099 vs. the Maestro. In the last issue Spider-Man was captured and thrown into a prison with Dr. Strange 2099. Obviously this issue starts with a prison break that everyone knew was going to happen, but it comes with a Strange little twist. Strange shows Spider-Man around the complex, eventually leading him to the Time Machine that will bring him to another time and place. But it is broken, and she needs him to fix it. It’s a little obvious, but this just screams TRAP the whole time. Admiral Ackbar would have no voice left after reading this comic. Spidey falls for it a little too easily, but understandable. He did just have his ass handed to him by the Maestro, and he did see the ruins of what was once his world. Spidey “defeats” the Maestro and escapes using the time machine. One page later, it is revealed that it was indeed a trap, and the Maestro just wanted Spider-Man to fix the machine. It’s a good story, with an extremely eerie setting, and is an excellent two part story (assuming the Maestro part of Spider-Man 2099’s life is done now). I give this issue a 9/10.
1) Nova Annual #1
Nova is easily the surprise hit of 2014-15. Gerry Duggan perfectly captures the optimistic youth of Sam Alexander, and turns him into a respectable and inspiring young man. Unlike the version in the Ultimate Spider-Man TV show. I still remember getting chills when Nova went against all odds and decided to battle a rampaging Hulk. This annual is the conclusion of that story, as Sam enlists the Hulk’s help in fixing the helmet that broke in their first fight. This story has wit, adventure, and charm. I don’t want to ruin too much of the story, but Nova is an excellent series that needs to be included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I give this issue a 10/10.
