Amazing Spider-Man #666

Marvel Comics

(W) Dan Slott
(A) Stefano Caselli

The Spider-Man story of the decade begins with the “Spider-Island: Prelude”!
Super-star writer Dan Slott and fan-favorite Spidey artist Stefano Caselli are back! New York has been Infested and the web grows as it gets ready to explode into Spider-Island! Normal people are getting Spider-Powers! But not all of them realize that with great power must also come… you know the rest.
Okay, sure we often say Peter Parker’s life will never be the same. But listen, pal, we’ve never been more serious. Heroes and villains are crawling all over Manahttan and no one knows why. This will change everything for Pete, for Spidey… and possibly for you.
Look at it this way… If everyone’s a Spider-Man… then no one is.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century #2 – 1969

Chapter Two of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Century takes place almost sixty years after the first chapter in the psychedelic daze of Swinging London during 1969, a place where Tadukic Acid Diethylamide 26 is the drug of choice, and where different underworlds are starting to overlap dangerously to an accompaniment of sit-ins and sitars. The vicious gangster bosses of London’s East End find themselves brought into contact with a counter-culture underground of mystical and medicated flower-children, or amoral pop-stars on the edge of psychological disintegration and developing a taste for Satanism. Alerted to a threat concerning the same magic order that she and her colleagues were investigating during 1910, a thoroughly modern Mina Murray and her dwindling league of comrades attempt to navigate the perilous rapids of London’s hippy and criminal subculture, as well as the twilight world of its occultists. Starting to buckle from the pressures of the twentieth century and the weight of their own endless lives, Mina and her companions must nevertheless prevent the making of a Moonchild that might well turn out to be the antichrist.
