But a new crisis has arisen…fear is spreading throughout the populace…and, while doing charity work in disguise, Robbie Baldwin’s true identity is exposed to the people of Stamford. With the world falling apart around him, can Speedball rally the population against the new dange…or will this survivor of an old war be the casualty of a new one?

  1. In for a penny, in for a whole crap load of tie-ins

  2. Christos Gage + Speedball = My Money spent. Can’t wait.

  3. Agents of Atlas!!

  4. I will say this is an incredibly personal story for me.  I hope you guys like it!

  5. The talent on this book looks promising.

  6. The story sounds really good but 7 issues at $3.99 that contain Chaykin’s art makes it a little harder for me…Will probably make the decision tomorrow,

  7. Tie ins Ties ins! I know if we dont like them dont buy them…….. Whatever! We can voice our opinions here and thats what some of us do; when where not kissing someones rear!!


  8. This was great! 

    The Christos Gage/Speedball story made me angry, to the point where it was hard to read in some panels. But I think that was what it was supposed to do.

    The Atlas story is showing some interesting parallels between paranoia now and in te 1950’s. Shows a lot of promise.

    The Chakin/JJJ page showed that though Jameson is down with Spidey, the rest of the MU heroes…not so much.

    And Mr. McCann. Please, please, please! Convince Marvel to give you and Pepe an ongoing! Just great!

  9. That Speedball story was infuriating. God damn Robbie can’t get a break can he?

  10. The direction Speedball’s been taken in since Civil War has zero appeal to me. It isn’t entertaining, and reading yet another belabored tale about how hypocritical, nasty, self-centered and stupid people can be is just annoying to read. My distaste for the Speedball story alone could keep me away from the rest of this series…

  11. Oh, and as for the rest, the Atlas story had strong art but it seemed choppy – it didn’t quite hook me and I suspect it will read better straight through (all 4 parts) than this chunk did on its own. Chaykin’s JJJ story was only one page long; it was well drawn and utterly pointless and not at all entertaining. McCann and Larraz’s story was the best produced segment, the characters popped, the art was engaging, and they delivered a full story with an economy of pages. The underlying tone was a drag though – I hear about the economic crisis every day on NPR, read about it in the news, and see its effects through work. I don’t really want my entertainment to hinge on it too, so in the end that killed a bit of the joy in the story for me. Overall, this comic didn’t pay back my time and money in entertainment value.

  12. Krapp! Just took my money what a fool I am! I will not be buying anymore of this one! The Fearitself was good on its own I will stick with just that.


  13. Haven’t been able to get myself to read this, whatta waste.
