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.

First, I need to give my yearly advice to people buying gifts for comics fans, especially late ones! Do NOT try to buy an item you THINK they might want! Chances are, they either have it or don’t wait it if they haven’t already bought it. Instead, locate their local comics shop and buy a gift card! They’ll be able to purchase what they want, so they’ll love you for it! Phew! Okay, now we can move on to the topic at hand – This is a great time to be a comics fan! That’s so true on several levels!

When I recently reviewed All-New, All-Different Hawkeye #3, I fussed about the fact that much of the comic is still the same as it was before it was called “All-New” and “All-Different.” Most of the people in the book are still the same. The settings and abilities of many of those same people are, well, still the same as they were before the first issue in this series came out. Yes, there’s a new writer, but he’s following the pattern of the previous book.
Angry that someone has raised the hammer he gave to his son, All-Father Odin has done the unthinkable: Enlisted his brother to reanimate the nigh-unstoppable monster known as The Destroyer to take out the new Thor once and for all. Can she stand against such a powerful foe? Your Major Spoilers review of Thor #7 awaits!
