Naked Nepotism aside, I’m going to wait and see what this is before I say whether it’s good or bad. What am I talking about? Earlier this week Marvel Comics did a countdown gimmick to announce a secret new Spider-Man project. Some people were speculating that it was going to be a continuation of Sam Raimi’s and Sony’s Spider-Man movie verse only in comic form. Nope, imagine my surprise when the countdown ended and we got a video of JJ Abrams and his Son Henry announcing they are creating a 5 issue Spider-Man limited series that will also debut you brand new villain called Cadaverous. The series comes out this fall. As I’ve said, I’m going to withhold judgment until I learn more.
