The Spider-man is dead, long live the Spider-man

Tomorrow, Spider-man will die. To be more specific, tomorrow is the day when Ultimate Comics Spider-man #160, the conclusion to the series spanning arc "Death of Spider-man", comes out. 10 years ago, Ultimate Spider-man marked a start for new generation of comic book readers. It introduced an all new Ultimate universe, a place where anything was possible (altough it wasn't always good for the story). Now, Brian Michael Bendis ends what he started with Peter Parker and will soon start with a brand new Spider-man. If you are not afraid of the spoilers, you can read Bendis' statement about Peter Parkers killer and more here. Now, the only unresolved question is: who is this new Spider-man?

And the following are original cover and variable cover (by Joe Quesada!) for Ultimate Comics Spider-man #160 respectively.

Assassin's Creed x Woodkid

Yeah, I know I'm a little bit late and tha E3 is already behind us, but I realized I had to let people know about these amazing videos and music. So, this is it: Yoann Lemoine, AKA Woodkid is music video director (yay, Mystery Jets!) and also a musician, who released his debut EP "Iron" on March 28th, 2011. You can read about him either on Wikipedia or watch his videos on his official site. Woodkid got kickstarted on June 7th, when the E3 trailer for new Assassin's Creed: Revelations game was unveiled. The trailer is accompanied by the eponymous song from his EP, "Iron", and it suits Ezio's struggle really well. Naturally, people started looking for the song to their surprise they found an even greater official video. Now, the only thing that's left for you is to watch both videos below and be amazed. I guarantee you, you won't be able to get "Iron" out of your head.
