June The New York State Library’s June exhibit focused on comic books, with a special “pop-up exhibit” in the last week that featured Luke Cage, the first black superhero to star in his own series. Comics are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the State Library collections, but the holdings in Manuscripts and Special Collections are many and varied, with contemporary as well as historical items that reflect New York’s and America’s cultural landscape — including comic books! First donated to the State Museum, the collection was transferred to the Manuscripts and Special Collections unit of the State Library in The collection consists chiefly of superhero comic books but also includes some detective and western titles. Most of the works in the collection were published by DC Comics and Marvel Comics, the two major publishers of comic books, dating mainly from This collection also includes a small series of graphic novels.

Copy Link Copied advertising Spider-Man: Homecoming was a welcome injection of youth and energy into the almost 10 years old Marvel Cinematic Universe whatever the timeline of the universe actually is , and most of the Avengers are also a decade older.

This is a wonderfully self-contained Spider-Man movie to be sure. But make no mistake, there’s cool Marvel stuff and Spidey history hiding in nearly every scene.

I’ll probably update this after I see it again, anyway. So, let’s get to work Keep in mind that even though this isn’t an origin story, there are some key elements that come out of some of Spidey’s earliest comic book adventures.

Share Marvel Entertainment has announced its launch lineup for Marvel Legacy, its upcoming linewide comic book relaunch, and the future of the Marvel Universe looks … surprisingly familiar. The majority of the Legacy line is the same as Marvel’s current comic book lineup, with a few additions – revivals of Marvel Two-in-One and Spirits of Vengeance, both series pairing fan-favorite characters Fantastic Four’s the Thing, and Ghost Rider, respectively with other heroes, and a solo title for The Falcon, AKA Sam Wilson, who currently headlines the Captain America: Sam Wilson series – and a handful of interesting omissions: Guardians of the Galaxy is losing its spinoff titles, fan-favorite title The Unstoppable Wasp is apparently disappearing and, most interestingly and surprisingly, there’s a complete lack of Captain America altogether.

Marvel Legacy will begin in September with a page special issue by Jason Aaron and Esad Ribic that will set up the status quo for the comic book line moving forward, with the initiative rolling out across the line the following month.

Peter’s time as Spider-Man as a whole eventually ends on this note. Spider-Man defeats the Sinister Six once and for all but dies from his injuries. Kingpin is dead, New York is safe for the time being, a new team of superheroes are defending the city now, Frank Quaid has replaced the corrupt DeWolffe as police captain, Iron Fist’s family is safe, and Spidey’s legacy lives on, having inspired the people of New York.

But Peter’s family and friends have been left in mourning, Daredevil is dead, Moon Knight had to give up his secret identity to bring down Kingpin, Shang Chi has left New York with his idealism shattered, Kong and Kitty’s relationship fell apart, and now that Kingpin’s gone there’s a power vacuum in New York’s underworld.
