    Default JJ and Henry Abrams' Spider-Man #1 YouTube Trailer with Nick Lowe

    Marvel just came out with executive editor Lowe's trailer for the father and son mini series. We hear (stock?) excitement from Lowe and see a bit more of Picelli's art. And, if you are into that sort of thing, you can check out the comments, much of which as you might expect are less enthusiastic. A few frames of lens flares on Cadaverous and it gets called out already.

    I seriously doubt this series will sell one million or more units for each issue (as some inside the industry speculate). Abrams name isn't enough to achieve such success, IMO. Every comic book storyline which has sold millions of copies in the past twenty-five years or so was a major event like Death of Superman or Knightfall. These events owed much of their success to being billed as "game changers" months in advance of their release. The sales of these issues were not caused because of who wrote them rather because of the bombastic well-telegraphed content.

    This looks like a intriguing new limited series so i will be buying at least the first issue.
    Sara Pichelli's art looks great and the story seem to be quite interesting.

    The real test is whether it can beat or do comparably to Whedon's first issue of X-Men, so like 200k, but I highly doubt it.

    One million?? Even the biggest comic event hasn’t sold close to that since the early 90s when the industry peaked. I’ll be shocked if this breaks 100k.

    I'm looking forward to this because it looks cool / different. I could care less who is writing it or why.

    Out of morbid curiosity, I'll check it out but my expectations are not that high.

    It still smells a lot like nepotism, but I almost fell bad for the level of hate received by Henry Abrams, who seem a nice kid. I will check it for curiosity.

    I'll be getting this when it comes out, for sure. Hope it lives up to the sales pitch.
