DC has been promoting this new book for the last month or so, which got our interests piqued. The book will follow a young Clark Kent and his journey to becoming one of the most iconic superheroes in the world. Having Max Landis as the writer only proves that this is one book to take a look at.

ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT AVENGERS #1

The revamp continues this week at Marvel Comics in this week’s All New All Different Avengers, one that has comic book fans abuzz. After the main members, Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Vision have gone their separate ways, they are brought together again after a villain threatens the existence of the world, together with Miles Morales (Spiderman) and Ms. Marvel.

WEB WARRIORS #1

One of the most entertaining things that came out of the Spider-Verse story-line are the different Spidermen of the Multiverse, but after that story fans were left wanting more of this. Now, fret not Spidey-fans, the Spidermen are back in Web Warriors #1, making this a must-read book!
