It’s a familiar story. A radioactive spider bites a high school science nerd. Tormented by his classmates at school, disregarded by his family at home – Patton Parnell is already somewhat of a monster. Only now with all the power and none of the responsibility, venture deep into a universe where the story you know becomes as horrific as possible.
“My editor Ellie Pyle and I started chatting about the idea of re-envisioning the origin story of Peter Parker/Spider-Man,” says Chapman of his horror-themed Spider-Man in an interview with Marvel.com. “What if we approached one of the most beloved beginnings of a super hero and looked at it through a completely different lens?”
As the Spider-Verse inches closer, prepare for a terrifying spin on the tale you’ve always known. Get caught in the web this October in the chilling EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #4!
Edge of Spider-Verse #4 arrives in stores on October 1, 2014.
