COMICS TO CAMERA: Spider-Man, Part II

spider-man civil war captain america

In the first part of this series (here’s the link to Part I, on MikaelWrites.com – please read it before proceeding), I talked about the rather rocky start that Spidey had to endure in order to get his live action career up and web-swinging.

HOMECOMING by Marco Manalac

spider-man civil war captain america

And the year just keeps on getting better and better. A month after the epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiered, the Philippines gets Captain America: Civil War a week earlier than everybody in America.

The much-anticipated multi-part story arc, “Spider-Verse,” officially kicks off in the pages of Marvel’s flagship title. Regular Amazing Spider-Man scribe Dan Slott promised us that we’d see nearly every incarnation of Spider-Man ever (yes, including Toku Spidey himself, Supaiidaman); however, we ... Read More »

The Relaunched “Amazing Spider-Man” is a Book You Should Be Reading

Have you heard the news? The neighborhood just got a lot friendlier again. The one, true Amazing Spider-Man, Peter Benjamin Parker, made his triumphant return last month in the penultimate issue of “Superior Spider-Man.” For a year and three months in real-world time, the Spider-Man swinging around in the comics was not the hard-luck hero that fans had come to ...

Spider-Man News You May Have Missed

On top of my day job and my secret (shhh!) web-slinging career, I also write science news and geek articles for GMA News Online. Here are a few reviews and news articles about – you guessed it – Spider-Man that I’ve written so far. New York’s friendly neighborhood webslinging son is quite the newsmaker, so expect more news and reviews ... Read More »
