What if Your Comic Book Had a HUD? Spider-Man: City at War #1 Preview

Spider-Man: City at War is a much-needed additional Spider-Comic in this abysmal wasteland of not nearly enough Spider-Man comics. It’s also a comic based on a video game based on a comic, part of one of our favorite comics strategies, the snake eating its own tail. To tie it closely together with its video-game roots, the comic appears to have integrated a HUD for notifications Spider-Man is getting during the story.

It’s a device which… is probably going to get annoying, fast.

Okay, it’s already annoying. Sorry, but notifications are annoying enough in real life! Comics should be about escapism. What we’re trying to say, is… get the notifications out of our comics!

Spider-Man: City at War #1 hits stores on Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
