Marvel has announced, that following Amazing Spider-Man #600, the company will debut Web of Spider-Man in October.Â This will be a new ongoing title that will feature Spider-Girl stories in the issue as well.
â€œWith the â€˜Gauntletâ€™ storyline starting up and many classic adversaries of Spider-man coming back to the book, we wanted to find a place to tell you more about them without it eating up too many pages of the thrice-weekly Amazing Spider-Man,â€ explained series editor Steve Wacker. â€œSo while were tossing ideas around on where to best put that stuff, beleaguered assistant Tom Brennan came up with the notion to bring back the â€œWebâ€ title as a way to give a home to stories to people caught up in Peteâ€™s life. Starting with the first issueâ€™s Kaine story by JM DeMatteis and then continuing onto stories about Electro, the Rhino, the Lizard and many more by Web-Head Fred van Lente and regular Spidey artist Barry Kitson, the stories here directly impact what weâ€™re doing in Amazing Spider-Man!â€
The company is packing a lot into this first $3.99 issue, including a zombie variant cover – because we all know people are clamoring for more zombie variants.
