Why Yildiray Cinar dominated Insomniac demon?
“Kurt Busiek (MARVELS, Astro City) is back, with the biggest, wildest, most sprawling series ever to hit the Marvel Universe, telling stories that span the decades and range from cosmic adventure to intense human drama, from the street-level to the cosmic, starring literally anyone from Marvel’s very first heroes to the superstars of tomorrow. This first issue includes an invasion from orbit, a picnic in Prospect Park, super hero sightseeing in Manhattan, the All-Winners Squad in 1947, Reed Richards during his time in military intelligence, cosmic beings beyond space and time- and that’s only for starters. Featuring Captain America, Spider-Man, the Punisher, the Human Torch, Storm, the Black Cat, the Golden Age Vision, Aero, Iron Man and Thor, and introducing two brand-new characters, all beautifully drawn by Yildiray Cinar (X-MEN, Legion of Super-Heroes, IRON MAN) in the opening act of a thriller that’ll take us across the Marvel Universe…and beyond. Plus: Who (or what) is KSHOOM? It all starts here. And it goes…everywhere.”
Cruella de Vil is one of the most iconic Disney villains—at the very least, she has one of the best theme songs (second, perhaps, only to “Hellfire” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame). The tale of the fur-coat clad villainess from 101 Dalmatians is one of the most classic Disney stories, and in the vein of 2014’s Maleficent, Cruella is getting the opportunity to tell her side of the story this year.
Marvel’s Spider-Man is one of the greatest video game success stories of the last few years. After a history of lackluster games featuring the webslinger, Insomniac gave new life to Spider-Man with solid gameplay and a gripping story. After the end of Marvel’s Spider-Man set up a sequel, and with Spider-Man: Miles Morales expanding the story of a fan-favorite character, all eyes are on Insomniac for details on a Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It’s clear that the developer cares a lot about the character and the mythos around him, and there’s one thing the sequel could do to show that love even more.
The Sony delays keep on coming as the studio seems to be looking at its release schedule and deciding things are just a little bit off, like someone moved everything in its office to the left half an inch. The next delay has Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, the upcoming reboot of the film side of the Resident Evil franchise, pushed back from Sept. 3, 2021, to Nov. 24, 2021.One of the biggest strengths of Marvel’s Spider-Man was the game’s villains. Players got to see new takes on hallmark characters like Rhino and Doctor Octopus, and their appearances made for some excellent boss battles. The game also gave a spotlight to some more obscure characters, like Tombstone and Screwball, and this willingness to include characters that aren’t as universally known opens up a lot of possibilities. With how expansive Spider-Man’s rogues gallery is, Insomniac could dive even deeper into his lore and bring in villains that pay homage to the rich history of everyone’s favorite web-head.
