First Look | Marvel Comics 2.21

smheaderAn 10-page (!) preview of Spider-Man Family finds the webslinger back in black in one story and big-eyed in another — in the US premiere of Yamanaka Akira's Spider-Man J, that is. Meanwhile, long-time Marvel lame-o Stilt Man is laid to rest, a gathering of super-baddies sure to draw in Frank Castle in Punisher War Journal #4.




Civil War Funeral in Punisher War Journal #4

Frank Castle's first super-victim in his renewed war on super-crime is laid out to rest amongst the ashes of Civil War in Punisher War Journal #4. It's the funeral of Stilt Man and the super villain community gathers to pay their respects for not only a fallen friend, but a lost way of life.

Be here for a MUST SEE funeral attended by a veritable who's who of Marvel villains. It's everyone from the Shocker to Dr. Doom! Spider-Man even swings by to say goodbye.

Raise a glass as we remember an inept, but very tall, super villain in Punisher War Journal #4; the first of many Punisher victims to come.
