Amazing Spider-Man 2 - Limited Edition with Comic &hellip <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Andrew Garfield

I really think they will struggle to make a better Spidey film than this. It captures the spirit of the comic perfectly and manages to pull off one of the most heart-breaking moments in comic history on screen with aplomb.

There's a lot crammed in it's 2 hours + run time but the vast majority works really well. Jamie Foxx has fun with the eye-catching Electro and Dane DeHaan is scarily sinister as Harry Osborne. But the real strength of the film, as it with it's predecessor, is the relationship between Peter and Gwen.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Avengers by Brian M Bendis
I thought I'd pick this up seeing I'm a fan of Bendis' past work on Ultimate Spider-Man and wanted to find out more about the Guardians before the film comes out in August. Make sure you check out Abnett and Lanning's work on the previous series too.

Thor God of Thunder: Godbomb by Jason Aaron

I really didn't expect this second volume to be as good as the first. It might even be a bit better.

The three different Thor's should be confusing and gimmicky but in reality it works really well and the interplay between them is really quite funny. Esad Ribic's art is superb once again and the story ties nicely together at the end. I hope Aaron stays on this book for the foreseeable future.
