Spider-Man Saga #1 (One-Shot)
CBR | Marvel Comics | Released Oct 27 2010 | 36 Pages (c2c) | 29.58 MB
A free Spider-Man promo comic book with a December 2010 cover date promoting the upcoming Spider-Man storyline "Big" as well as telling a synopsis of what has happened in the Spider-Man series over the last few years. Put otherwise, a single issue that provides an updated history of Spider-Man and friends and enemies. This one is a sleeper; that is, nobody seemed to pay much attention to it but it really does update fans and followers of Spider-Man who have somehow gotten lost amidst all the crossover events Marvel has had recently on where ol' webhead is, now. This comic book is in full color and in the standard 32-page format with the usual ads, and was distributed on a limited basis; free with purchase of Spider-Man comic books while supplies last. This was done with almost no fanfare, nary a mention in the marvel online news, save for its title embedded in a release list--even its solicitation is a simple one-liner, given that Marvel (and all comic book publishers, for that matter) always punctuates its solicits with exclamation points. I recommend this one. Writer(s): Mike Fichera, J D Korejko, Rob London.
