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!

    I like the idea behind this particular take on the story. There are a number of superhero origins that I feel are just one stroke of luck away from being a horror story, and I’m always interested to see alternate stories where just one or a few little things drastically alter a familiar story.

    Shame that they are currently only really taking a look at Spidey in this way, since there are plenty of Marvel characters (hero and villain alike) that would lend themselves quite well to this sort of story.
