Superior Foes of Spider-Man #13: The Cosplay Cover! I like to think this image tells Marvel fans everything they need to know about our cast.

I don’t think the film ever got finished but there was a dude working on a documentary about Count Dante. i think I speak on behalf of everybody who ever read a comic book in the 70s when I say “I will watch that documentary every day for the rest of my life”
We don’t deal with it in the comic, but it’s fair to assume he’ll just drop that pizza half-chewed out of some neck-pipe and leave it for Shocker to clean up.
THOR NEEDS COFFEE!
I’ve been doing tax preparation and stressful client work all day, so I needed to finish by sketching something fun. Thor learns the art of the pour over.
Awesome to contemplate.
A cool appreciation of what @NickSpencer, @rachellecheri and I are doing on Superior Foes of Spider-Man.
Even if you aren’t reading any other Spider-Man comics, or any other Marvel comics, or have never even read a Marvel comic. If you are a fan of comedy, “Superior Foes of Spider-Man” — inaccessible and off-putting title be damned — is proving on a monthly basis that superhero comics can be as insane and hilarious as the best sitcoms on television.
This book stars a bunch of D-List Marvel villains as they try to level up and pull off a big score. But they’re all idiots. And they do not get along. It’s pretty much “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” with super powers. The series is structured in such a way that even if you’ve never heard of these characters, even if you’ve never read a comic book before, they boil down everything into quick flashbacks and get you caught up. But really, many of these characters and many of these takes on these characters all start with “Superior Foes of Spider-Man” #1. It’s a fresh start.
And if you’re reading and enjoying “Hawkeye,” know that this has the exact same “I can’t believe this is a mainstream super comic” vibe that makes “Hawkeye” feel so special.
Read it. Read it digitally right now.
