Jessica Drew, why are you so blue? On Tuesday, Marvel announced a brand new Spider-Woman series, helmed by writer Karla Pacheco (Punisher Annual 2019 #1, Fantastic Four 2099) and artist Pere Perez (Uncanny X-Men), set to debut in March 2020. The series will feature the enigmatic Avenger in her iconic costume, taking on an all-new enemy when she goes looking for fresh thrills and signs up for a mysterious new gig. Something is definitely wrong, but what is it? And what does it have to do with her deadly past?
“I love Spider-Woman, and I’m incredibly excited to share this series with both new and old Jessica Drew fans alike,” Pacheco said in a statement. “This is big, can’t miss, over-the-top action, some very surprising ‘venom blasts from the pasts,’ and also a TON of helicopter explosions. It’s a super fun adventure with a lot of twists and turns…and seriously, so many helicopter explosions. We’re taking Jess bigger and badder than she’s ever been before, and I can’t wait for readers to see what we’ve cooked up.”
It’s been a few years since Jessica starred in her own solo series, though she appears in the current Captain Marvel run and in Strikeforce. It seems several of our favorite heroes are going through major changes as of late, and the effects on the Marvel Universe are sure to be tremendous.
Marvel is mostly keeping mum on the plot of this new series, but the publisher did release the Junggeun Yoon cover, which you can see below. Spider-Woman returns to comic shops with her own solo title in March; stay tuned for solicit info and more.
