AMAZING SPIDER-GIRL" LAUNCHES IN OCTOBERThis pleases me, greatly.
The little comic that could has been given a second life as Spider-Girl, which ended at the milestone 100th issue, is now being relaunched as the Amazing Spider-Girl. Thanks to the most dedicated and enthusiastic fanbase in all of comics, the adventures of Mayday Parker will continue in Amazing Spider-Girl #1 with Spider-Girl creator Tom DeFalco still at the healm.
I know that few of the few who read this blog have much love for comics. I'm sure that fewer still can resist smirking over the fact that I'm rather enthusiastic about the return of "Spider-Girl," whom they've probably never heard of, anyway.
Still, I unapologetically love comic books and THIS character was in a pretty darn good comic book. It spoke to the classic tone of comic books from waybackwhen and I'm very pleased to see that it won't end as has been reported.
Marvel's way behind, converting the 99 issues of her current, soon-to-be-rebooted series into digests, so it'll probably be quite a while until I catch up (although I'm hoping that they'll hurry so I can read the whole series, soon).
Once I do, I'll be looking for this new series to make it to collected volumes (hopefully some time soon).
