As comic characters grow older, it can be very challenging to keep their stories fresh. Especially with flagship characters like Spider-man, Superman and the like.

New beginnings are always important in life. I’m not really one for change though, so I’m probably running the risk of sounding hypocritical here, yet I see the dividends in my friends’ lives when they decide upon this course of action. However, it has to be carefully planned out; It’s …
