With the Spider-Man III movie hitting US theaters this weekend, it makes perfect sense to play on the characters and villains from the movie throughout the various Spider-Man titles from Marvel. The company has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek at the upcoming Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Annual #1 featuring the oigin of the Sandman.

Written by PETER DAVID

One of Spider-Man’s classic foes returns in Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Annual #1, as readers are treated to Sandman: Year One, featuring the origin of the Sandman. The man who would become Flint Marko, and later the villainous Sandman, wasn’t always a bad seed, so what set him down this path? And how does Spider-Man figure into it? These answers, and more, arrive in a story by fan-favorite writer Peter David and artists Ronan Cliquet, which shows the Sandman in quite a different light than ever before! Then in a backup tale by David and artist Colleen Doran, you’ll be moved by this story about a homeless girl who loves Spider-Man in a story entitled “LEAH.”


Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man Annual #1 arrives May 23 for $3.99.

    ‘Pretty much the story of my life…going nowhere fast’.

    This, for me, cements the idea of William Baker as a compassionate, tragic character forever. Thankyou Mr. PAD.

    A bit shaky on the ‘Sand’ references, though…
