While we may bemoan the Ant-Man vs Hulk Coke commercial, one can’t help but be impressed by the amount of work that went into making the spot come alive. A new video has surfaced this morning that breaks down the making of the commercial.
Anyone here remember the Marvel Treasury Edition books? I do, but that’s because I’m old enough! Well, they’re coming back with Spidey: All-New Treasury Edition Vol. 1, scheduled to appear in comics shops this June. It will collect the first five issues of the new Spidey comic, written by Robbie Thompson and with art by Nick Bradshaw. For those unfamiliar with it, Spidey focuses on Spider-Man’s earlier adventures, before he became an international corporate mogul.

Probably one of the earliest pieces of comic book related music, the Traits 1969 song, Nobody Loves the Hulk, was originally sold in the back of comic books from 1969 – 1970.

Do you have a favorite comic book related nerd song that totally rocks? Drop us a line, and let’s share your favorite song with everyone!

By this time tomorrow, you’ll have PTSD from all these teasers Marvel is sending out. It’s weird that the publisher is sending out so many of these. It’s almost like Marvel is trying to deflect attention from the whole Marvel Studios movie, and the rumor that The Totally Awesome Hulk won’t appear in the Captain America: Civil War.
