Preview: Amazing Spider-Man

As the Gauntlet rages on around him, the spotlight is on Peter Parker's original archenemy-turned-best friend, Flash Thompson. Since losing his legs in service to his country, Flash Thompson's not been deterred by his physical limitations. But even a hero can have his limits. Greg Weisman, one of the brains behind the smash TV hit Spectacular Spider-Man, teams with Luke Ross (CAPTAIN AMERICA) to bring a touching story of Flash Thompson coming to terms with his new life. Then, Fred Van Lente and Joe Quinones (WEDNESDAY COMICS) bring Spider-Man face-to-face with Morbius, The Living Vampire!

Comics style at the Olympics

While nothing has quite channeled the Fantastic Four as much s the Ukrainian pairs skaters, the two-man bob competition has given everyone an EYEFUL. With their husky builds and lack of support garments, this is a pretty good idea of what real life superheroes might look like.

Review: Zeus: King of the Gods (Blog@Newsarama)

The commonality between the Greek heroes and gods of myth and the twentieth century comic book superheroes has been noticed, expressed and remarked upon so many times that it has long since become a cliché.
