During Friday’s “Marvel Comics: Spider-Man” panel at San Diego Comic-Con International, the publisher revealed new art for several of its Spidey and Spidey-adjacent runs, as well as two new series: The Amazing Mary Jane and a Spider-Verse mini.
The Amazing Mary Jane spins right out of The Amazing Spider-Man #25; the series will be written by Leah Williams (Age Of X-Man: X-Tremists, Gwenpool Strikes Back) and illustrated by Carlos Gomez (Uncanny X-Men Annual, Red Sonja), premiering this fall from Marvel. Full solicit text and the cover for issue #1 are as follows.
SPINNING RIGHT OUT OF THE PAGES OF AMAZING SPIDER-MAN! “YOU JUST HIT THE JACKPOT!” ALL-NEW ONGOING SERIES! The web-head’s favorite redhead (and yours!) is taking a chance on her dreams. But if you’ve read ASM #25, you’ll know MYSTERIO is behind Mary Jane’s big shot, and someone worse is behind him! What’s real and what’s illusion, what’s illusion and what’s Hollywood phoniness? This fall, Leah Williams (AGE OF X-MEN: EXTREMISTS; GIANT MAN) and Carlos Gomez (UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL, Red Sonja) bring you all this intrigue plus more action, glamor, grit, and – we’ll say it – sass than anyone’s previously dared fit in five fabulous issues! Face it: you don’t wanna miss this!
Spider-Verse will be a six-issue mini-series written by Jed Mackay and illustrated by Juan Frigeri with Arthur Adams, Stuart Immonen, Stacey Lee, and more. Additionally, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse character designer Wendell Dalit made the main cover art, and each issue will feature #Spidersonas from Spidey fans and comics creators the world over. Full solicit text and the cover art for issue #1 are below.
Miles Morales finally feels like he GETS this Spider-Man stuff… and then falls through a portal! But isn’t the WEB OF LIFE & DESTINY destroyed? Maybe not, True Believer. But who spun this new web? Regardless, Miles finds himself at the center of a multiversal adventure that will feature a who’s who of creators and characters as the series spins forward! And with a main cover by INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE character designer WENDELL DALIT!!! And each issue features #SPIDERSONAS from some of the biggest Spidey fans and comic creators both!
