WAKE UP CALL: Sleepwalker Rises In Avenging Spider-Man #19 (Preview)

Say '90's comics' and many fans stick their head in the sand - but it wasn't all big guns and anal floss sporting bad girls. One plus was Marvel's hunt for a new 'Spider-teen', with Nova in New Warriors and Sleepwalker and Darkhawk debuting right into their own hot titles.

Sleepwalker, for his part was a guardian from the Mindscape, a dimension that connects all dreams, who got tricked into stepping into the mind of teen Rick Sheridan. As Sleepy fights to return home, he also emerges from Ricks mind each time his 'host' slumbers, to right wrongs here in our time.

Now, after a bit of a nap in the Marvel U, Sleepwalker wakes. Where? In this weeks Avenging Spider-Man #19. The cover is cropped above, and while it seems like all Sleepy does is make the new Spidey (cough Doctor Octopus /cough) a soft bed to chillax in, the interiors promise anything but. Here's a few preview pages to show you what I mean.

Now, that we've got that off our chests, the mysterious being known as Sleepwaker stalks Spider-Man in the waking world, while something far more horrible has invaded his dreams! And what nightmares will the Superior Spider-Man's dreams unleash on the world?

 What do you think?
