“Once you pop, fun don’t stop!” No, wait. “The man is non-stop!” No, still not quite right… Marvel Comics announced a new ongoing Peter Parker series at ComicsPRO on Thursday: Non-Stop Spider-Man, written by Joe Kelly with art by Chris Bachalo. Swinging into stores this June, the series will apparently feature major Spidey villains and non-stop thrills, though there’s no mention in the press release of Peter running on Energizer batteries, so take that with a grain of salt.
“[Editor] Nick Lowe has a superpower. He picks up the phone, calls me and says the exact combination of words that make me want to drop everything and dive head first into the Marvel Universe. Last time it was Spider-Man, Deadpool, Ed McGuinness. No brainer, YES,” Kelly said in a statement. “This time it was Spider-Man, Non-Stop, Chris Bachalo. Again, YES… but ‘Non-Stop?’”
He continued, “Non-Stop Spider-Man is, for me, the best of what Marvel comics can be: relentless action, epic storytelling, mind-melting art, and relevant themes, all grounded by the heart and soul of one of my all-time favorite characters, Spider-Man. Chris and I want to redline your adrenaline and shatter your hearts, giggling the whole time. Please sign your waivers and gather your safety gear of choice before issue one comes out. I truly can’t wait for this. Buckle up, Tigers.”
Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 will be available at your local comic shop in June, with cover art by David Finch. Stay tuned for more details!
