New York, NY – June 16, 2017 – THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVERS! The moment five years in the making is finally here! The first time Peter Parker and Miles Morales met ended with a question – WHO IS THE MILES MORALES OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE?! Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Brian Michael Bendis (Defenders, Spider-Man) and Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man) bring you the next heart-stopping adventure for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales with Marvel Comics’ SPIDER-MEN II!
There’s only one thing worse than a failed project, and that’s a failed project that sells itself out as an ad for the next project. That’s what the epilogue to the disappointing Civil War II really is. It’s just a prologue for the next big Marvel Comics crossover event – Secret Empire. What’s that old saying? Fool me once… Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Civil War II; The Oath #1… because it gets much, much worse…
Talk is cheap. And in Civil War II #7, nothing happens but talk, and it’s not cheap. For five dollars American I got pretty pictures, a lot of talk, hardly any plot progression, and nothing happens. In a comic that includes entire pages taken up by credits, alternate covers, a next issue tease, and a minimalist roll call, that is awful. When it’s taken into account how late this event series is, it is simply an awful shame. But then again, what does or doesn’t happen in this issue may be a matter of perspective, and we may just have seen the death of another major Marvel superhero. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on what does happen in Civil War II #7…
War Machine is dead. She-Hulk is barely alive after a coma. The Hulk is dead, killed by Hawkeye. And now Spider-Man might kill Captain America? Is this really what we want in a comic book? Are readers that bloodthirsty that we’ve entered the era where Rollerball and Death Race are almost real? Surely it can’t be that bad, or as Civil War II #6 rolls out the week before one of the most insane US Presidential elections in history, is it? Or perhaps there is a more sinister reason behind all this. Meet me after the jump for my admittedly dark pre-Halloween pre-election thoughts on Civil War II #6…
If you read the latest issue of Civil War II, or read the review of it here at Biff Bam Pop!, you know how it ended, and it was not pretty. How far would you go to stop such a terrible event from taking place? Would you imprison the actor before the act? That’s the question on all of our minds. Get a sneak peek at what Marvel Comics’ superheroes think, and do, in this sneak peek at CIVIL WAR II #6, after the jump.
Despite delays from both Marvel Comics itself, and this reviewer as well, the next installment of 2016’s biggest crossover comics event, Civil War II, is finally here. Two groups of superheroes, led by Iron Man and Captain Marvel, are ready to go to war with each other over an Inhuman with the power to predict possible futures, a conflict that promises to make the first Civil War look like a picnic. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on Civil War II #5!

But he’s still the new kid on the block.
He’s still learning that the city, the world, the universe – is a big, big place.
He’s still learning that he doesn’t entirely fit in.
And he’s still learning that with great power comes great responsibility.
Follow me after the jump as I sling the web of reasons detailing why you need to be reading Spider-Man #1!
