    Ooh boy. Spider-Man Corps.

    Penance isn’t looking too shabby either. I can sense two things: that this is set before the Ellis-Bolt’s first arc, as the psychoanalyst hasn’t met him, and it may have something to do with Time Travel, judging byt he waitress’ monologue.

    Marvel Comics Presents will be my first definate Marvel buy in a long time. I always loved the anthology format. Buying 1 title for a little more than normal, and getting 3 or 4 stories serialized over X# of issues makes more sense to me than buying 1 title for a little less and getting 1 story over X# of issues. THis little preview just sealed the deal for me. Thanks guys!
