Daredevil & Spider-Man Team-Up in 90’s By The Numbers

It’s time to face facts, true believers – the 90’s were awesome. The pouches were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!

With that in mind, we’ve pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one radical fact at a time! This week we’re singling out AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #396 by J.M. DeMatteis and Mark Bagley. Here’s “Back From The Edge: Deadmen” by the numbers!


51 bricks in 1 panel
 

21 visible plates of armor on Daredevil’s costume
 

5 birds circling the Owl
 

4 eyes, 0 pupils
 

3 blades on Owl’s wrist
 

Or sometimes 2 blades on Owl’s wrist
 

1 smile from Daredevil

Miracleman’s Golden Age Begins this Fall

It was the series that changed comics forever. And at long last – it will be completed.

This September, a tale that began 25 years ago will finally be told in MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM #1! Visionary comic legends Neil Gaiman and Mark Buckingham  bring you a new Age of Miracles and a story of epic proportions! Kicking off The Golden Age storyline and then continuing into the unfinished The Silver Age and The Dark Age arcs, Gaiman and Buckingham’s lost Miracleman story will finally see the light of day!

Uttering a single, long-forgotten word, Michael Moran transformed from the ordinary into the extraordinary – and Miracleman was born! Years out of print and left unfinished, Marvel Comics is pleased to bring these iconic and trailblazing stories back to print for an entirely new generation of fans. Now is the chance to jump on board one of the most groundbreaking stories in comics history before these two industry titans bring you the cataclysmic conclusion to their famously unfinished storyline!

“That Neil and Bucky can finally finish the story they started, is a great relief to still-gasping fans — myself among them,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso.

Gaiman and Buckingham reunite with series colorist D’Israeli and award-winning letterer Todd Klein to create the definitive Miracleman. Each issue has been remastered directly from the original artwork and will feature extensive additional content including scripts, original art, sketches, rare promotional pieces — and more! Look for this exciting jumping on point this September 2 when MIRACLEMAN BY GAIMAN & BUCKINGHAM #1 comes to comic shops!

Plus, get caught up before September with Miracleman Book One: A Dream of FlyingMiracleman Book Two: The Red King Syndrome, and Miracleman Book Three: Olympus – available digitally and wherever books are sold!

NEW SWAG OF BONO, GEORGE REEVES AND ALICE COOPER

Elfquest in education

Jeff Meade (@mobilejpop) asked us if Homer’s Odyssey influenced the Elfquest hero’s journey. We told him: “It’s not that the Odyssey influenced Elfquest, it’s that both stories follow the same mythic form. Odysseus is a classic hero, who follows the classic Hero’s Journey – check out what Joseph Campbell has written about that. Cutter follows the very same template, which goes far back in storytelling and cultural history.”
Jeff let us know that he planned on using Elfquest in his history classroom this week and he kindly shared with us on twitter some awesome photos.
