Welcome back to the Spider-Verse!
The best Spider-Man movie EVER spins its web into theaters this week, or at least some think so!  Your friends at Midtown were lucky enough to attend a pre-release screening—find out what Henry has to say and check out his review! To celebrate, we recommend heading out to the theaters and then rushing home to check out the great Spider-Verse books that inspired the movie!

Elsewhere in the world of comics, we have tons to be excited for as Aquaman gets a breath of fresh air (Or is it water?) with the new creative team of Kelly Sue DeConnick and Robson Rocha in Aquaman #43! He’s got plenty of pals to hang with in DC land, as Uncle Sam’s trademark team comes back with Freedom Fighters #1! Plus, expect a double dose of the Dark Knight with Batman #61 and Batman Kings of Fear #5! Meanwhile, Marvel’s coming out with some heavy hitters too, as the original team unites in Defenders Best Defense #1! Plus, two of 2018’s biggest stories wrap up with Extermination #5 and Infinity Wars #6! And be sure to pour one out for the departed afterwards, with Infinity Wars Fallen Guardians #1. All that, plus Livewire #1, Klaus and the Crying Snowman #1, and Hardcore #1!
