Looking for something new to read? Here are some great new books to try this week:
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis; Artist: Sara Pichelli
Synopsis: Miles Morales has been doing the super hero thing for a while, now, but after Secret Wars, he'll be a full-fledged member of the Marvel Universe. Swinging next to The Invincible Iron Man, The Mighty Thor and the All-New Captain America as a card-carrying member of the Avengers is an adventure, but it's not all fun and games for New York City's main Spider-MAN! What happened in the eight month gap? It all starts in Spider-Man #1!
Why We Are Excited: Ultimate Spider-Man was the best selling title under Marvel's Ultimate line-up of books, so we were sad to hear the whole universe would be going away after Secret Wars. But that sad turned to glad when they said Miles would make the jump and join the regular Marvel ('616') Universe. How will he fit into a world that is familiar, but different at the same time? And in a world where Peter Parker-Spider-Man is still alive and web-slinging. Throw in that it's being written by Bendis, who not only created Miles, but the entire Ultimate Universe concept, add in Pichelli's spider-riffic art and we can't wait for this series to get into full 'swing'.
Writer: Markisan Naso; Artist: Jason Muhr
Synopsis: Jurassic World meets Top Chef! Haunted by the death of his sister, Chef Nate Willner has lost his desire to cook. Forced to move back to his hometown in Utah and work at a coffee shop, Nate's life is quickly becoming a dead end. But when he unexpectedly inherits a time travel suit that takes him to the age of dinosaurs, Nate's passion for cooking is reignited! Extra-Sized Debut Issue! 64 Delicious Pages!
Why We Are Excited: Time travel can get so messy with all of it's rules. Going back in time can either help your parents meet and fall in love or constantly keep sending cyborgs intent on ending humanity. But what if someone used it for a much different reason? How would it be to taste the foods that haven't ever been available to mankind's palate? Maybe this is how the dinosaurs became extinct! They didn't go out with an asteroid, but instead with a nice honey glaze and red wine!
