If there is one thing I have learned from George Lucas, is slapping your brand on anything is a sure way to make a buck. I’m not saying Marvel is doing the same thing with Spider-Man, in fact, most of the Spider-Man spin-off series like Spider Man Loves Mary Jane seems to be doing quite well.

The latest series to get the Spider-Man treatment is Spider-Man Fairy Tales #1, which hits the stores May 30th. Marvel has sent us a sneak peek that puts a new spin on an old tale. Even without the word balloons, I am loving the art style.

Can Spider-Man save Red Riding Hood and Granny, or will the Big Bad Wolf show him who’s king of this forest? You’ll learn all that and more in Spider-Man Fairy Tales #1!

    Is it just me, or does that thing strongly resemble a “stupid, stupid rat creature” from Jeff Smith’s Bone?

    Dear gosh…it’s almost the Picture of Kingdok before he went into his ‘Big-Headed’ Phase!

    Anyho, I’m not gonna pick this up. It’s just too silly to work – Clint & Wanda would be far more suited to a traditional European Fiarytale. I will, however, have a peek at the Anansi one, as it seems to be very well drawn…

    Oh, and speaing of Clint, NA #30 apparently has a cool revelation about him…
