In an amazing twist of celebrity, Community star and rapper Donald Glover has gotten to voice Miles Morales, the Ultimate Spider-Man, in the Disney XD animated series.
As it’s Glover that was the original inspiration behind the alternate universe Spidey, written by comics star Brian Michael Bendis, this is a treat for fans and the actor himself.
“That’s the great part about the Spider-Man costume: He can be anybody,” Glover told USA Today. “Spider-Man could be a girl. Spider-Man could be an old man. You don’t know. So I just tried to be as me as possible, because you’re always just going to bring it back to yourself when you watch the show.”
Check out the clip below as Peter Parker (voiced by Drake Bell) meets Miles Morales, voiced by Glover.
Capullo’s art continues to shine. And make you scratch your head. And shine.
Never in its many incarnations has the Animal Man mythos been this fascinating.
Refreshing in its choices. Miles Morales is not Peter Parker.
Hickman is in pure form. A science-fiction Western? YES. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse running around and kicking semi-righteous ass? Also YES.
It keeps getting more bizarre and funny and Rob Guillory’s art continues to shine. Also, you can’t argue with a comic that continues to make up increasingly awesome food-related superpowers.
Arguably the best title in Robert Kirkman’s Skybound sub-label, this gem tells the “untold” tale of what Lewis & Clark REALLY found. Imaginative and nuts.
A worthy follow-up to Origin. A pre-Wolverine Logan is sooooo ANGRY. And sad. And tragic. There’s a spread in Issue #4 that made some of us go “NO!” AND “YES!” at the same time.
Cyclops is INTERESTING. #whatnoway
In the future, powerful families rule instead of governments or corporations. One genetically engineered member of the family kicks the asses of anyone the family decides needs it. Awesome.
It’s still hilarious. Like they say, it’s “The Hobbit meets The Hangover.”
We know this is more than 10, but we added this cuz she is bad ass. Period.
When we’re looking for comics in our local nerd den, we’re often overwhelmed by the quantity of new titles each week. That’s not even counting the back issues and collected series in trade paperback format.
So we asked some of the most alpha nerds we know: the folks at Industrial Toys, a game development team (Midnight Star) with a who’s-who pedigree in geek. There’s CEO Alex Seropian, the co-founder of Bungie games (Marathon, Halo), Tim Harris, part owner of Alley Cat Comics in Chicago, John Scalzi, best-selling science fiction author, and Mike Choi, a veteran comic book artist in his own right.
Harris and Seropian, along with art director Aaron Marroquin and senior graphic designer Sarah Chiappetta, chimed in to our request with the comic books that they think are the best in the bin.
