Ranking the All New All Different Marvel: 50 – 41

Spider-Man 2099

Peter David & Will Sliney
I didn’t hate it, but that’s about all I can say very strongly. I do like Spider-Man and I think this version might go a more serious route, so I’m willing to give it a chance. For the moment, the prospect of a dark Spider-Man and the awesome covers have me interested….for the moment. – SS

Groaning at the first few pages isn’t usually good. I kind of thought the whole fun of Spider-Man 2099 was seeing the Marvel world in the future so without that concept, I am out. – BC

First collection: Spider-Man 2099, Vol. 1: Smack to Future (April)


Moon Girl & Devil Dinosaur

Amy Reeder & Brandon Montclare
It’s pretty hip in the comic world to resurrect lesser-known Kirby works, but after reading this, I feel like it’s lesser known for a reason. A story with a super genius and a dinosaur pet as main characters initially seems awesome, but I’m not as excited to read further as I am interested to know what the heck is going on. I believe it’s good to not answer all questions right away, but this book could have done a bit more to flesh out the background. And the art is pretty average, not at all Kirby-chic. – RF

All New All Different Marvel – Week 11

Feeling burned out? Too many new books? Too many Inhumans crashing the woe-is-me mutant pity party? Marvel gets it. So howsabout another light helping of series premieres for week eleven, all of which are genuinely New and Different.

James Robinson follows up Scarlet Witch with a jaw-dropping introduction to the new Squadron Supreme. Starbrand & Nightmask makes another attempt at preserving Jim Shooter’s New Universe legacy. And Mike Del Mundo brings us back to the realm of castoff swords and misfit sorcery in Weirdworld.

The first trade collections of these new series are being released in April, so the Idle Time focus group plans to wrap up our rankings and reviews by the end of March. That doesn’t mean Marvel is slowing down in the new year, however. Check out the announcement for the new Black Panther book, debuting in April.
