After starting things off back in February 2008 with Volume one issue #1 of Kick-Ass, Mark Millar managed to create a real-world superhero and since then it’s been a mixed bag of highs and lows for me…..with movies, sequel comics and the kind of hype that only Mr Millar can generate with his creations…..big question as we move into this final chapter…..is whether it’s better or worse than what’s gone before.

So-called “Events” from the big 2 seem to come around as often as celebrity news and in most cases are just as pointless but Jonathan Hickman seems to be trying to break that cycle…..

It feels like a long-time coming but we finally have the return of Miguel O’Hara aka Spider-man 2099 and things kick-off with another interrupted day in Mig’s life.

As issue #5 ended with Ben Urich left mid-air after being thrown out of a hospital window and a brief glimpse of Daredevil making another appearance……we were left wondering how this title would finish up as the body-count has already been added to from the beginning and the word “Mapone” ringing through our heads as we try to work this out before the mystery unfolds…..but it was never going to be obvious.

The Guardians of the Galaxy title is set to hit next month with #1 and it felt strange that Marvel would bring us a #0.1 (daft numbering again it seems) but this sets things up with an origin tale with a difference.

With a great opening start in those first 3-issues (reviewed here) we see Dan Slott continue to mess with Spidey’s life, head AND relationships…….and I’m loving it

With Age of Ultron set to kick-off next week I thought I’d take a look back at the first issue Marvel released for this as part of Free Comic Book Day in May 2012.

While the AvsX event may have not impressed everyone it certainly lead us through to the Marvel Now creative team reshuffle which has been a much more consistently impressive affair and with someone like Brian Michael Bendis heading up two of the X-books, there’s a world of potential & possibilities at his disposal.

The first two issues wowed me (#1 & #2) in this 8 part series and having passed the halfway mark I’m still engrossed in a story that seems to have harnessed a feel of familiarity and the unknown in equal measure with mystery abound surrounding the last words of Matt Murdock aka Daredevil has been the catalyst for an investigation by The Daily Bugle’s own Ben Urich.

Hopefully now that the dust has settled from the events of those last few issues of Amazing Spider-Man in 2012 – we can settle into the new world where Spider-Man is a very different title to read and relate to
(I’ll say Spoiler alert but if you don’t know what’s happened up to this point then you’ve probably been living in a cave or never seen a comic book in your life)
