This Week in Comics - February 25th

Sweet Release of the Week

Alright folks this is the week we've been waiting for since Edge of the Spider-verse #3, that's right Spider-Gwen #1 has released.  I got a chance to read it last night and, like her initial appearance, things have taken a bit of a right turn as familiar characters go.  Let's just say it seems like in Gwen's version of the Marvel Universe, the Fantastic Four didn't form.  With that out of the way, let's move on to next week.  Next week is the beginning of the pseudo-reboot of the smash hit Hawkeye with All New Hawkeye #1.  We also get Princess Leia #1 and Saga #26, so keep an eye out for those issues.

Now I'm Gonna Sing the Doom Song!

Back on February 20th there was a tweet that was very Invader Zim-looking from Oni Press simply stating that Doom is Coming.  So there were rampant rumors that Oni had gotten the publishing rights to the Nickelodeon cartoon Invader Zim. The original tweet was also retweeted by Zim creator Jhonen Vasquez, which added more fuel to the fire. As of the 23rd of February we have confirmation that Zim will be gracing the pages of his own comic in July. As to whether it will be an ongoing or a mini-series or something in-between is yet to be seen, but GIR is almost guaranteed to be singing the Doom song alongside his master.

Stay Classy Denizens!
