By | Aug 23, 2019 | Reviews

“Ghost-Spider” #1 is the kind of slice of life, low-key, seemingly non-threatening Spider-Man story that would be right at home on a spinner rack in a 1970’s drug store. It’s a throwback to the kind of stories that made Spider-Man the most popular character Marvel ever published, only this time it’s with Spider Gwen. Written […]

I originally discovered Jason Brubaker by accident. I was poking around Kickstarter and saw the name Brubaker and thought, “The guy who writes all the crime comics?

Maybe it was us going on "A Nice Long Walk." It couldn't be the comic who's photo is featured and also directly below this paragraph, could it? Only if this were "A Better Place."
