The Superior Spiderman Issues 1 and 2 Review

Image
Dan Slott, you've done it again! Peter Parker is dead. Doc Ock is Spiderman. The whole thing is crazy town banana pants and it's ok with me. I've always been a fan of Spiderman but I like the villians more. Doctor Otto Octavis, sir you are are on the top of my list. So it's obvious why I am a fan already.

To set the scene Doc Ock is on his death bed and his dying wish is to see Peter Parker. Then BAM Otto's and Peter's minds switch. Peter dies trapped inside of Otto's body, and Otto begins his new existence. Not as The Amazing Spiderman, no Doc Ock vows to be The Superior Spiderman. Oh and it get better, he also inherited all of Peter's memories too. 

Doc Ock is loving life now since he has a sweet job at Horizon Labs and Mary Jane is pretty hot arm candy. Hell, he even he has JJ Jameson's approval. Then while The Superior Spiderman is schooling a bad guy, a glimmer of Peter Parker's conscious comes and wills Otto to do the right thing. 

Hang on tr…

If you missed The Walking Dead Escape last year, don’t this year. The Walking Dead Escape is once again taking over PetCo Park for their own brand of terror. Be sure to sign up for their wait list emails here in order to be the first to score tickets to participate as either a walker or survivor. This year there may be opportunities to volunteer again and score an amazing t-shirt that was not available for purchase last year.
Are you up in the air about it? Here is my opinion. Go, and go at night. Personally I’d rather be a survivor, but fitness is my thing. Last year we went, only after we hesitated to commit because of the price and an already packed SDCC schedule. We gave into temptation and ended up doing a mid-day run since it was the only time available. The Walking Dead Escape still brought it though. I won’t ruin it with too many details, just in case it hasn’t been switched up too much.
I can testify that it was crazy physical. The breaks they promise are few and far between. T…
