The Arms Of Michael Costa And The Return Of Doctor Octopus In All New X-Men, Indestructible Hulk And Superior Spider-Man

ock1 Michael Costa is best known for his War Of Warcraft comics. Possibly his Transformers and GI Joe comics. Maybe his Jack Hawksmoor comic if you can remember that far back. He wrote the Blackhawks book for the New 52. But you probably knew him as Mike Costa and we haven't seen his work much for a bit.

Until October that is. When Marvel have hired him to write The Arms Of The Octopus, three extra-sized comics linking together All New X-Men, Indestructible Hulk and Superior Spider-Man, all joined by a J Scott Campbell variant triptych.

And called him Michael.

With a new Doctor Octopus, or rather, somehow, the old one, with the Abomna tion, expect to hear a lot from Michael Costa from now on…
