Hello my friends and welcome to October! It’s always one of my favorite months of the year because of Halloween and this year its even more special based on all of the amazing stuff that is headed our way in terms of media. For instance, we are only days away from the opening of the film “Venom” and if you haven’t seen the second trailer yet just click HERE. We also have the return of Michael Myers in “Halloween” which looks as creepy as all get out. Don’t believe me then click on this LINK for good measure to see what I mean. So this month also is the month of “Spider-Geddon” and we’ve showcased the assorted variant covers that were coming for that first issue HERE in case you didn’t see them but that is enough out of me, its time to present the new launches and special editions from Marvel Comics as was provided by their press angle with light additional spice from other providers who have culled the same releases. Let’s go.
SPIDER-GEDDON #1 (OF 5): REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE! Back in 2014, SPIDER-VERSE brought every Spider-Man ever together. This event spinning out of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #800 has Christos Gage and Dan Slott teaming up to destroy them all. The Inheritors have somehow gotten out of their radioactive prison planet and made their way to the Marvel Universe. It’s going to take a whole Spider-Army to keep them from TAKING IT ALL! Starring Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, the Spider-Man from the anticipated video game and, well, every Spider-Man and Spider-Woman ever, including some brand-new ones! With Jorge Molina on art, the END OF ALL SPIDERS never looked so good!

But he can’t do it alone and Jessica Drew, A.K.A. Spider-Woman has signed on to help, but has Kaine told her the whole truth? With Ashley Barton, from the OLD MAN LOGAN universe, and two new characters (Astro-Spider and Spider-Kid), Kaine’s team is complete and their first mission may be their last!
