So do you remember what you were picking up 8 years ago at your local comic shop in August 2011?
I hope you were picking up Ultimate Fallout #4 which was landing on store shelves during this time.
This went on to be a huge success for Marvel. On Earth-1610, a young African-Latino becomes the new Spider-Man shortly after the death of that Universe’s Peter Parker. Miles Morales is bitten by an Oz-enhanced spider that gives him his powers.
Miles Morales was created by Brian Bendis and Sara Pichelli and since 2011, has gone on with success in both print and film, most notably the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
That’s your Throwback Thursday, short and sweet. Tell us if you were visiting shops 8 years ago and if this was one of those books you picked up.
