I had so many recommendactions for this that I just watch 1.1 and 1.2, and ithe is remarkably good. Twisting narrative, stylised scenes, paranoid hero, Aubrey Plaza, matter of fact super powers, subtle references to Fox Marvel Universe. And excellent use of music.

All of this, freaking love the weird 70's future aesthetic.  Only the one slight grumble after the first couple of episodes, lead looks so much like a young Damian Lewis that it's kind of distracting!  Plaza's fantastic.

There was definitely some talk back in the day about 'Alan Moore' Spider morphing into 'Grant Morrison' as a result of his drastic haircut.

Reading through Annihilation Conquest care of a Comixology sale, enjoying it so far - the Starlord Dirty Dozen style mini precursor to the Guardians Of The Galaxy relaunch is ace.

Absolutely, a very strong piece and one that certainly left an impression - it's a testament to his talents that Garth can swing so wildly between genres and tone.  Finished up the Battlefields stuff he did at Dynamite, adored this homage cover to the old Battle comic.

Have you read any Hunter S Thompson ?  He's the obvious real world inspiration for Spider.  I thought Transmet lost it's way a little around the middle but it was still never less than pretty good - one of my favourite ever fiction endings too.
