Amazing Spider-Man #8 – Spidey’s new costume comes into full focus this week. It’s definitely an interesting take on the threads. It’s not taking too much away from the original but adding to it. It also depends on which artist is drawing him as well. The costume looks predominantly different with different lenses. That all said, artist Patrick Gleason has become a premiere Spider-Man artist within the last few years. He’s really come into his own “owning” the character and making his proverbial mark. The “webhead (Amazing Spider-Man #55)” cover really solidified his spot with the fans and he’s been killing it ever since. There are several Spidey covers he’s done that’ll forever be paid homage to in years to come. We pointed out one a few weeks ago (The Amazing Spider-Man #7) that we think will be one of those covers to be done over and over again, paying homage. Another such cover will be the regular cover done by Gleason arriving this week. Although a bit similar to past covers from other great artists, Gleason makes this one his own. So, get on the Patrick Gleason Spider-Man train if you haven’t already, the man is becoming one of the premiere Spidey artists for the ages.
Damage Control #1 – A great concept from Marvel drawn up years ago. A clean-up/damage control superhero organization. This Wednesday we’ll see a new face running the place, Gus. The writer for the hit television series The Goldberg’s, Adam F. Goldberg, will team up with Hans Rodionoff and artist Jay P. Fosgitt. We’re looking at an energetic, well-done five-issue mini-series here.
Remember when the first appearance of Damage Control was selling for crazy amounts of money? The graded 9.8’s are still overpriced (in our humble opinion). Raw copies are way inexpensive, so you know why the wide gap, right? The raw copies are on the cheap because no one wants them and the 9.8’s are too much because of greed. See how this works? InvestComics never joined (pushed) the “Damage Control” mania because of two reasons, one, we simply did not think ABC would ever get to actually putting together a series, and two, we didn’t have an agenda to rip people off. Here’s one of the many downside responses we had in 2016: ….That may be a bit much especially not knowing if Damage Control from ABC is DOA. We really had zero faith in it back then. Saved y’all lots of money and heartache.
