This answers the question of what Spider-man we’ll be seeing in the “All-New, All-Different Marvel” when all the Secret Wars dust settles.
Marvel is pleased to announce SPIDEY #1 – a brand-new ongoing series launching as part of All-New, All-Different Marvel! Follow the adventures of teenaged Peter Parker in a new series set within continuity from rising star writer Robbie Thompson (TV’s Supernatural, Silk) and blockbuster Marvel Young Gun artist Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy)!
“Everyone remembers their FIRST Spider-Man comic,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “SPIDEY aims to be perfect as someone’s first Spider-Man comic, or their one thousandth. We’re not looking to re-tell stories here. What Robbie [Thompson] and Nick [Bradshaw] have put together is an exciting new take on Spider-Man at his arguably most iconic incarnation, and will feel fresh to new and old fans alike.”
They’re taking him back to High School, which could be fun, and they even say all the right things in the press release “We’re not looking to re-tell stories here.” But later in the release we get, “Familiar faces and new characters populate Peter Parker’s world” and “Iconic villains, a classic supporting cast, the ol’ Parker Luck and more are back!” Which, not to sound too negative, sounds an awful lot like retelling old stories. Parker’s Spider-man has been around for 700+ issues, how original are you going to make it? Here’s hoping we don’t get “Saved by the Bell” the super hero years.
The art looks great, the costume iconic, if the story-telling holds up we should have a nice Spider-man run to look back on in a few months, when Marvel becomes the All-Newer, All-Differenter Marvel!
