"Superior Foes of Spider-Man" (Marvel) By Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber
For fans who love: "Nextwave," " Deadpool," "Pulp Fiction"
"Superior Foes of Spider-Man" is, simply put, hilarious. Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber are giving readers a monthly look at the underworld of the Marvel Universe. No, not the scary underworld populated by the Green Goblin, Kingpin or Dr. Doom. No, "Superior Foes" is a deep look into the loser villains portion of Spidey's rogues gallery, showing what Boomerang, Speed Demon, the new Beetle, Overdrive and Shocker, do on a typical day. No disrespect to "Deadpool," which is also currently firing on all cylinders, but "Superior Foes" is just that: Superior to any other humor book Marvel is producing. It avoids farcical, fourth wall breaking situations, focusing instead on the story of a bunch of losers with somewhat lame powers trying to survive in a world of gods and Avengers. The result is one of the funniest, tightly written, beautifully drawn, conceptually original books on sale today.
