Sympathy for The Gibbon in This Week's Amazing Spider-Man #18.HU

The primary purpose of the Hunted storyline in Amazing Spider-Man is to make Marvel a boatload of cash by pumping out upwards of 25 Spider-Man comics in a single month, but a side effect of the storyline is that it may be turning some of Spider-Man's villains into sympathetic characters. Just look at the preview for this week's Amazing Spider-Man #18.HU, one of the spinoff issues that couldn't fit in the regular-numbered issues of the storyline. In the preview, we get a flashback to the lovable loser's childhood, where his simian appearance caused The Gibbon to be the victim of school bullies…

About Jude Terror

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

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
