The Ultimate Spoilers for War of the Realms #6 (Preview)

Though their creators get pretty mad when other website spoil their comics, Marvel itself has no problems spoiling its own comics in outlets like the New York Times if it suits them.

Angela Will Play Big Role in New Series After War of the Realms

Angela Will Play Big Role in New Series After War of the Realms

When Marvel purchased the rights to Spawn character Angela from Neil Gaiman in 2013, it was a baffling move to most in the industry.

In fact, one could […]
