"We’re stunned and grateful that Robert Kirkman let us tell this particular story, which is firmly set in the continuity of his and Charlie Adlard’s beloved series. The Alien sheds light on a corner of their undead universe we never dreamed they’d let us reveal..." -- Brian K. Vaughan

This might be me worrying over nothing. My hangup over Spider-Man becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is this...
MCU heroes are not hesitant about killing the bad guys. Will this carry over to MCU Spider-Man?
Trigger warning for superhero morality.

"I’m obsessed with privacy and the troubling way some of us seem to willfully sacrifice it at the altar of social media. I wanted to write a story about a future where everyone has a secret identity, in part because the internet no longer exists." -- Brian K. Vaughan

After having a look at Marvel's Season One announcements, I had a little think to myself about what it was and why it was needed.

Not many books are new-reader friendly. When I started reading Ms. Marvel, I jumped in to part 2 of a 2 part story and got the gist of things pretty quickly. I don't think that I've jumped on to a book without a signposted jumping on point and without a good awareness of the characters. It's often difficult to get into characters, or arcs, or even understand the world. Sometimes the hints that writers drop for new readers just clunk at the feet of old readers (focussed totality of my psychic powers, anyone?).

Maybe a set of one-off stories that explore characters and set up their background organically while also telling a good story are the order of the day.

Marvel already did one of those and they set the bar pretty high. It's called Doctor Strange: The Oath. Of course, not everything can be written by Brian K. Vaughan and drawn by Marcos Martin - that does help a book quite a bit.

It also helps if each issue of the book has a really accessible and interesting recap page. I can only think of three books off the top of my head that have used recap pages in an exciting way "in character" for the book - Patsy Walker: Hellcat, Incredible Herc and The Oath. I think that the Dark Reign: Young Avengers book did a few cool things as well, but I'm not entirely sure.

So, with no commentary, let's see how good the recap pages of The Oath #2, #3, #4 and #5 are at telling the story.

So one thing that bugged me about the new DD reboot was how 'happy' it looked...not that DD can't be happy, but given the circumstances where we last left him, I thought it was a little jarring.

These two pages put my fears to a rest a little bit.
