While we seem to get crossover after crossover these days. Sometimes we get smaller, more focused crossovers that work better than the big ones. Spider-Man, Punisher and Daredevil have had many run ins and clashes over the years and today we get our first look at their next one. Will they all be working on the same side?

Marvel is proud to present your first look at, Avenging Spider-Man #6 - The Omega Effectpart one, from the superstar creative team of Mark Waid, Greg Rucka & Marco Checchetto. “Trust no one… Hurt everyone” - The Omega Effect begins here! Spider-Man, Daredevil & The Punisher, find themselves in an epic chase across Manhattan for the all-powerful Omega Drive! But can the three of them put aside their differences before the Omega Drive falls into the wrong hands? Find out in Avenging Spider-Man #6, hitting comic shops everywhere and theMarvel Comics app, this April!

Spiderman and Punisher facing off against trained ninjas? I think not! Daredevil I could see maybe. I'll stick to DC!

Why does Punisher have anime eyes?

#4 Posted by DIOMJK (155 posts) - - Show Bio

@Tyrisis: Isn't that the point of a crossover? Putting characters into situations they don't normally encounter with other people from their shared universes?

Also, the Punisher was once resurrected as a Frankenstein-esque monster (I know, it WAS stupid), so this is actually probably FAR closer to his comfort zone than that ever was.

No matter how many times I see Checchetto's art, I still can't help but being blown away by it.

The coloring is hindering it.

I think that's just the quality of the scans.

I will most definitely pick this up in trade

Checchetto's art is fantastic. He draws a brilliant Frank and Spidey.

Nope. Its the coloring for sure. I don't like this type of "dull" coloring, Marvel's been using it far too much.

Lately Marvel is going down against DC's Reboot, good idea after all

I love dare devil,Spiderman and Punisher cross over events

#20 Posted by chroinkero (68 posts) - - Show Bio

Is the cross-over only going to take place within Avenging Spiderman or also in DD and Punisher?

#21 Posted by King Quisling (1980 posts) - - Show Bio

BOOSH!

#22 Posted by LP (673 posts) - - Show Bio

Greg Rucka and Mark Waid are writing this? I might check it out....

#23 Posted by LordRequiem (1309 posts) - - Show Bio

There's only so many ninjas. Apparently in comics they're naturally recurring.

#24 Posted by vicioushero (163 posts) - - Show Bio

I love Spider-Man, but haven't checked out Avenging yet. Is it like a team-up series?

There should be a Punisher anime. That will be awesome. =P

Spiderman looks all asian and shit.

#27 Posted by Kallarkz (3303 posts) - - Show Bio

Does everyone forget the extensive Kung fu training spider man recently had? Or are the people surprised by it not even keeping up with spider books?

#28 Posted by SexualLobster (995 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks pretty good, I may buy this one..

And it isn't an event, this is a team-up series pretty much, every issue has been a different team-up.

#29 Posted by saoakden (1026 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks cool.

#30 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

Now this is a kind of crossover I can sink my teeth into without it seeming too cliche or hyped. Smaller crossovers all the way.

Really? I think it may be the scan quality. Because Hollingsworth's colors look superb on the pages of Punisher month in and out. I like the hazy, miasma bathed world that Hollingsworth brings to Punisher's NYC. I can see how that may not be your thing though. My only problem with it here is that Spidey's anatomy seems a bit off in the first two pages. Other than that it's business as usual for Marco.

@RedheadedAtrocitus:

Yeah I don't hate, logical, well executed crossovers. What I hate is the money grabbing events that they barrage us with. Rucka/Waid writing this and Checcheto doing art on all three titles will keep this consistent and tight. Plus I only have to buy an additional issue of Avenging.

#32 Posted by Shotgun (900 posts) - - Show Bio

Ninjas? Really?

As much as I love seeing Spidey in anything, I still think that seeing ninjas in New York is far too ridiculous. Heroes vs. Ninjas. How original.

I agree with you. I think they're trying to give it a "gritty" aesthetic feel and it's just not as good as it could be. But I do love the art still.

Punisher looks like snake from metal gear when he injured his eye

@chroinkero: it's going to span all 3 titles

#40 Posted by ShepRad (11 posts) - - Show Bio

Rucka is doing an AMAZING job on the Punisher, definitely my favourite Marvel title at the moment; So is Waid on Daredevil. Chechetto's art is truly astounding and I cant get enough of it. Must buy for me!!!

#41 Posted by UltraHeroix (154 posts) - - Show Bio

Hopefully they will touch on the spider-Fu ! It would be cool if spidey uses his new moves on the ninjas and show daredevil his new tricks!
