Spinning out of the Spider-Man panel at Wondercon, we have two announcements: the next Spidey arc (and villain) and a Punisher mini-series that’s a bit different from the monthly.
First up, the next arc in Amazing Spider-Man will be called “Spider-Man: No Going Back.” It starts in Amazing Spider-Man #688 (June) and concerns the return of the Lizard and what everybody’s favorite mammal-hater has been working on in the background, the last few months. Michael Morbius (of Living Vampire fame) will also be turning up and… it just never goes smoothly when someone’s trying to cure Curt Connors of his Lizard affliction, does it?
Giuseppe Camuncoli is the artist joining regular Spidey scribe Dan Slott for the arc.
Next up, we have the July premiere of Space: Punisher, a 4-issue mini-series where Frank Castle makes his mission of vengeance more inclusive – Punishment: It’s not just for Earthlings any more, so to speak.
The mini-series will be written by Frank Tieri and illustrated by Mark Texeira. Texeira hasn’t done a lot of interior art in recent years and it’s nice to see him back in the fold.
You probably would like to see some art?
