Public Domain #1 – Spiderman NoirComic Planet – Panini

Public Domain nº 01 – Comic Planet

With 'Public Domain', the winner of several Eisner awards Chip Zdarsky, plans in a very interesting way the eternal historical struggle between corporate greed and art. “Based on the hit comic…” is the phrase that has haunted comic book artist Syd Dallas for decades. “The Dominion”, the superhero created by him, has generated movies, toys, video games and a lot of money, but he does not own his creation. Now his son Miles is willing to confront the company responsible for his family's misfortune.

Marvel Omnibus Spiderman Noir. The Complete Collection – Panini

All the adventures of 'Spiderman Noir' alone are published in our country, in a single volume. With great power comes great responsibility, but when those who have that power abuse it, the people have the responsibility to bring them down. The year is 1933. New York is governed by corrupt politicians, police officers who do nothing to protect the innocent, and unscrupulous businessmen. That's when a spider changes Peter Parker's destiny, but it's not the story you expect. A Spider-Man with a pulp flavor and noir genre.
