I like everything about that Spider-Man cover but Spider-Man. Cant wait till Thor: GoT #3 - loving the God Butcher.
JDUKE25 - 1/23/2013, 1:22 PM
That Superior Spider-Man cover is TERRIBLE
marvel72 - 1/23/2013, 1:31 PM
quesada needs to be drawing a monthly title.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 1/23/2013, 1:39 PM
Da [frick] is up with spider-man's foot

The superior spiderman cover is awful. Which it's kinda odd, considering it was drawn by Simone Bianchi, who's usually a pretty cool artist... Guess The Superior Spider-man truns everything it touches into s#!t, lol

@THEDARKKNIGHT1939&rbfn04

Dudes, its Doctor Octopus in Spiderman's body
TrueRedBlue - 1/23/2013, 1:59 PM
So I'm the only one who thinks the Spidey photo looks interesting? Okay... :(
M3T4LL0 - 1/23/2013, 2:00 PM
Looks like spider-man got his foot run over by a large truck. WTF is this crap?
AmazingFantasy - 1/23/2013, 2:23 PM
Spidey looks interesting, dark and a tad quirky there.
vtopa - 1/23/2013, 2:26 PM
The NOVA pic is great but I could not care less because its some pimple-faced kid named Sam and NOT RICH RIDER! Bring back Rider Marvel!!!!!!
siggisuperman - 1/23/2013, 3:47 PM
Thor God of thunder is one of the best series ever. I am shitting myself waiting for the next one! I wonder who Sam Alexanders father is ?
siggisuperman - 1/23/2013, 3:49 PM
That Superior Spider-man cover is strange. It kind of looks like an Octopus Spidey, with spider man making up the tentacles of the big spidey head...
yingyangpalms - 1/23/2013, 3:58 PM
"Superior (Inferior) Spider-Man" collage broke an unwritten rule, you dont use the same character more than once.
What a stupid cover but its for a Dan Slott comic, so it needs to be dumb.
If they think that crap is going to sell comics it wont. Each Marvel Now title has dropped by 70% and more after the 1st issues. And remember, the sales are not sales to readers but to shop owners.

-yingyangpalms, there's no "unwritten collage rule", that doesn't make any sense.

Terrible bump raised texture on that Spider-man costume, gotta be the worst incarnation of the suit I ever seen... WTF?
KeefNCookies - 1/23/2013, 8:58 PM
Love Skotti Youngs baby-covers. Simply amazing.

Joey Q is such a damn good artist..! If only his decisions were even half as good... :\

And oh yeah, #*&$ Superior Spider-Man and Boy-Nova. Still pissed they skipped over explaining the aftermath of The Thanos Imperative (Avengers Assemble was the worst, not looking forward to the new Guardians Of The Galaxy series AT ALL).
Doppelganger - 1/23/2013, 9:52 PM
Eh at least they drew spider-mans arms like Peters Parkers version where the red continues down to the gloves. Still prefer Peter Parkers Spider-man costume.
yingyangpalms - 1/23/2013, 11:18 PM
@orpheus If youre doing a collage thats one image not pics formed together from different story parts then you do not use the same character multiple times in a collage, unless you suck.
Look at the classic "Star Wars" poster art, or others from Amsel and you see the kind of image that the "Inferior Spider-Man" artist, whomever he is, was trying to go for.

And the art on the cover is very bad anyway. Spider-Man looks like "Mer-Man".

Once Dan Slott is done with his novel mind-switch idea, maybe he'll do a incredible time travel story. Or a clone story. Other peoples garbage ideas are gold to a hack like Slott.
Poor old fat-ass is milking this mind-switch thing like its an incredible idea hes discovered. I dont think he realizes it and he sucks-now and forever!!!!!

@yingyangpalms

In Struzan's poster for bladerunner decker is on there twice. So either Struzan is an idiot or you are. Take your pick.
jimoakley666 - 1/24/2013, 3:13 AM
Bianchi can't draw Spiderman for shit. Never been a big fan of his work.
jimoakley666 - 1/24/2013, 3:19 AM
On the other hand I really like that All New X-Men cover.
GhostKILLERgx7 - 1/24/2013, 5:00 AM
x-men cover is sick. but what happened to wolverine saying "don't want kids to have to fight?" thing. or did we all forget schism?
comicstocode - 1/24/2013, 5:30 AM
That's not Fury. Quesada couldn't draw his own title, it would take too long because he'd have an actual deadline. He would also die of heart failure trying to keep up with said deadline.
comicstocode - 1/24/2013, 9:21 AM
I also think having Ryder as Nova is better because it NOW seems that Marvel is ripping the GL or Alien Legion thing. Focusing on an outsider as a cog in a larger machine rather than a bunch of ridiculous insignificant pieces that are ultimately disposable and replaceable. Ryder is too dear to the fans. And Fury looks like a black Leader, sorry.
