Comic Corner: The Spider-Man universe entangles readers in an intricate web

To provide fair warning, the disclaimer at the top is really an understatement. There are some major spoilers ahead for these comics. That being said, there is not much point in beating around the bush. Courtesy of these three issues, Peter Parker is dead and Doc Ock is now Spider-Man. Yeah, that actually happened. Now, let’s take a closer look and see what caused this insanity.
As a matter of full disclosure, I should mention that I’ve kept my eye on the Spider-Man universe enough to know generally what’s been going on in it, but I have not actually read many Spider-Man comics since the “One More Day” story arc (a story wherein Peter made a deal with Mephisto, Marvel’s version of the devil, to save Aunt May and make the rest of the world forget Parker’s recently-revealed secret identity in exchange for Peter and Mary Jane giving up the memory of their marriage). Hence, I did not pick up these issues when they first came out and there were none left when I went to go buy them later, so my knowledge here comes largely from scans and transcripts of these comics.

Movie Review: Zero Dark Thirty

From Kathyrn Bigelow, director of the critically acclaimed film “The Hurt Locker,” comes “Zero Dark Thirty,” a film that documents the search and pursuit of Osama Bin Laden. The most important thing for this movie is to know what to expect, as the movie has far less action than “The Hurt Locker.” Although the previews for the movie depict a high intensity, action packed thriller, these sequences are saved for the end of the film.
