I did a sketch of the new Ms. Marvel, Kamala Khan! The first issue just came out, and it rules!
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.
An appreciation of @nickspencer & @steve_lieber’s Superior Foes.
I think this is done.

I swear, Dustin Weaver’s covers are like a whole Avengers movie in a single image

Now with my #25 variant cover.
Two page spread by @steve_lieber from Superior Foes of Spider-man #5. Steve seems to have lost his mind.
Two-page spread from today’s Superior Foes. In a better world, I like to think this would be available to digital buyers as a side-scroller game.

I drew a sketch of Hawkeye and Pizza Dog at the Stumptown Comics Fest, and used it to play around with the coloring tools in Manga Studio 5. Here’s the result.
