AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 delivers one of the most iconic Marvel releases of this generation this Wednesday!!

The end of the Slott era arrives, and the beginning of a whole new era for Spidey begins! Do NOT miss this landmark issue that brings the Red Goblin saga to its startling conclusion!
We’ve been loving the heck out of Spider-Man for a while now, and every single issue of the recent GO DOWN SWINGING storyline featuring the RED GOBLIN has been better than the last!
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 is set to be one of the biggest freakin’ Marvel releases of this decade, and we can easily see why, Third Eye Faithful.
The RED GOBLIN saga that’s been captivating us since it began this Spring is some of the best stuff that writer Slott has done since SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN, and the simple idea of Norman Osborn bonding with the Carnage symbiote is the epitome of AWESOME.
\Now, as big things spread throughout Marvel and their new direction begins to take place, issue #800 is set to bring a close to Slott’s run (with an epilogue in issue #801, before the series returns to issue #1 for the upcoming awesomeness of Nick Spencer and INVINCIBLE artist RYAN OTTLEY’s run).
In this special 80-page giant of a comic, the biggest storyline to face Spidey in nearly 10 years reaches its peak!
Who lives? Who dies? And what scars will Spider-Man bear from here on out?
With this being one of the biggest issues of Spider-Man to hit in ages, and with it being the 800th issue of the series (a pretty impressive feat), Marvel has pulled out all the stops, and put together some incredible alternate covers to help really make this one special.

COMIC HISTORY IS MADE AS BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS BEGINS HIS DC COMICS CAREER WITH MAN OF STEEL #1, a 6-issue mini-series that takes us into the Bendis era of SUPERMAN!

The architect of Marvel since the early 2000s has made the switch to DC, and it all starts here with the most exciting Superman #1 we’ve seen in a long time!
If you’ve read comics in the last couple of decades, then you know that Brian Michael Bendis is responsible for some of the most incredible modern comic stories of all-time.
Whether it’s his universe-defining work in series like AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED, HOUSE OF M, and NEW AVENGERS, or his incredible world-building in series like ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN — Bendis has always delivered big-time.
And, making the jump to DC Comics may be the best thing Bendis has ever done, because we gotta admit: it had been a minute since he had wowed us at Marvel, but what’d you expect after nearly 20 years of amazing stories?
A fresh new sandbox to play in is exactly what Bendis needed, and it’s super obvious in MAN OF STEEL #1, which is – in our opinion – the best darn Superman comic we’ve read in ages.
Seriously: we have been huge fans of recent runs from Jurgens and Tomasi, both of which were INCREDIBLE, but we gotta tell you: the Bendis era for SUPERMAN, if issue #1 of MAN OF STEEL is any indication, is going to be AMAZING.
In MAN OF STEEL #1, a new era begins for Superman as a threat from his earliest origins reemerges to destroy the Last Son of Krypton.
As Superman struggles to come to grips with what has happened to his wife and son, he must also face a new threat that’s determined to burn down Metropolis!
Want the full scoop on everything Bendis has planned with MAN OF STEEL, and then what follows after this 6-issue mini-series? Click here for our Third Eye Guide to Bendis on SUPERMAN!

Tom King’s BATMAN run, without a doubt, has been one of the most amazing, and most impressive runs on the character that we’ve seen since the Snyder / Capullo era, and continues to keep us on the edges of our seats.
Now, with the wedding of Batman and Catwoman getting so close (7/4/18 – mark the date!), we’re pretty darn pumped to see the storylines in the comics leading into it kicking off!
Beginning this week, every week from now through June, will feature a one-shot counting down to the wedding of BATMAN AND CATWOMAN, and showcasing just how the entire Bat-Universe is dealing with such a big thing!
What’s the scoop on this week’s 1st chapter? Ra’s al Ghul returns to have a heart-to-heart with his grandson, Damian.
Once upon a time, Ra’s thought Bruce Wayne would be the heir apparent to his criminal empire, but now that Batman has turned his back on Talia for good, Ra’s wants to know if Damian Wayne will honor his mother by stepping into the family business at last.

Four giant beings comprised of the universe’s major energies-Mystery, Wonder, Wisdom and Entropy-who sustain their life force by devouring planets are on their way to destroy the planet of Colu.
The only way to take down this unimaginable threat is for the superhero teams of Earth to forget everything they thought they knew and form new alliances.
What secrets of the cosmos will Superman, Martian Manhunter and Team Mystery discover?

DC Comics crosses paths with Hanna Barbera again this week in 4 NEW ONE-SHOTS featuring SUPER SONS / DYNOMUTT, BLACK LIGHTNING / HONG KONG PHOOEY, FLASH / SPEED BUGGY & AQUAMAN / JABBERJAW!! More awesomeness in the vein of last year’s BATMAN / ELMER FUDD!

The team at DC Comics is so on point these days, and whether it’s the incredible crossovers they’ve done with LOONEY TUNES as seen in BATMAN / ELMER FUDD and more, or it’s separate line of SATURDAY MORNING CARTOON titles given an exciting new spin – they are delivering some killer stuff!
This week, we’re treated to FOUR awesome one-shots crossing the world of the DC UNIVERSE and classic HANNA BARBERA cartoons, and we cannot wait!
First off, we’ve got SUPER SONS / DYNOMUTT, where it’s no fun for Jon Kent to be visiting Big City with his parents for the  funeral of an old friend.
So his best pal Damian Wayne decides to follow along and give him the inside scoop on the city.
But when they go to meet Robin’s local friend, Dynomutt, they find him injured and in need of help.
And Dynomutt’s human superhero companion, Blue Falcon, has seemingly turned evil. What’s the reason for this betrayal between once-loyal companions, and what role might the evil Red Vulture play in this scenario?
And, then, in BLACK LIGHTNING / HONG KONG PHOOEY, back from Viet Nam, kung fu master Hong Kong Phooey has set up his own detective agency in the inner city.
Meanwhile, Jefferson Pierce (a.k.a. Black Lightning) has uncovered a plot by three assassins to collect the components of a sacred text revealing the darkest secrets of Martial Arts magic, and they’ll kill anyone who owns them – including the dog who holds the last chapter of the book, Hong Kong Phooey.
 
 
 
And, then in AQUAMAN / JABBERJAW, when the town of Amnesty Island is besieged by a series of shark attacks, authorities call Aquaman for help!
What’s unusual about this case is that the shark isn’t trying to kill people-he just wants to talk to them.
The very confused Jabberjaw needs to get back to Aqualand, the future undersea utopia where he came from.
But that peaceful city where man and sentient sea life have been living in harmony has been turned into a dystopian nightmare created by a new Ocean Master. Now the King of Atlantis and his friendly shark ally have to team up to set things right.
 
Finally in FLASH / SPEED BUGGY, when Wally West tries to take down Kilg%re, he’s stunned to find he has an unknown ally who can move just as fast as he can. Dr. Pernell, a brilliant S.T.A.R. Labs scientist, has found a way to power his buggy using the Speed Force.
When The Flash agrees to help test the limits of the vehicle in a race, something sends them spiraling out of the Speed Force and into the unknown.
They land in a post-apocalyptic future, but Dr. Pernell is gone, leaving only the buggy, which is now sentient.
Together with his new anthropomorphic ally, The Flash must find a way to repair the time stream and stop the triple threat of Savitar, Speed Demon Buggy and… Reverse Speed Buggy!
