Synopsis: The series, set ten years after the apocalypse, will feature two young female protagonists and focus on “the first generation to come-of-age in the apocalypse as we know it.

This high-stakes mission comes courtesy of all-star creative team Karla Pacheco (PUNISHER ANNUAL, FANTASTIC FOUR 2099) and Pere Perez (UNCANNY X-MEN). “I love Spider-Woman, and I’m incredibly excited to share this series with both new and old Jessica Drew fans alike.

We’re taking Jess bigger and badder than she’s ever been before, and I can’t wait for readers to see what we’ve cooked up.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve been a fan since Spider-Woman first appeared in the pages of “Marvel Premiere” which was one of my very favorite titles back in the day. She soon received her own series and I was a regular buyer of that before losing track or perhaps it finished its initial run – its been so long a time since that series that I don’t really remember. Though I haven’t followed her adventures all that recently, I do recall some issues where she was doing her thing while pregnant and that an artist did a super sexy cover that caused quite a stir among the masses and its always a pleasure to see cosplayers at the assorted conventions dressed as her. I am hopeful for this new series and will most likely be picking it up when it hits the racks this Spring. What say you? Chime in down below in the comments section.

We are now just a month away from the closing chapter of the original “Star Wars” saga as “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” is set to open on 12/20. With a film of this magnitude the media initiatives for it will be hardcore and keeping websites that have a strong Pop Culture sense very busy. Having touched upon a few items already, I suggest that those only now visiting us to check out THIS LINK to be on point with every item that’s gone online so far. As expected, in addition to full on trailers there are the much shorter “TV Spots” and as I did with “Avengers: Endgame”, as they get released to the public, I will be adding them into this single post. The adventure into that galaxy far, far away continues down below the Official Theatrical Poster and premise below. I’ve even listed the main casting after the most recent TV Spot.
