While everyone is waiting for the release of the next Marvel’s Spider-Man video game, Titan Books is set to release Marvel’s Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover, an official prequel to the video game by David Liss.
PETER PARKER is caught in a complicated web. Working in a cutting-edge laboratory, he’s a young scientist who’s trying to make a difference. Yet he’s constantly burdened by the responsibilities of his second career as the crime-fighting…
Wilson Fisk—the so-called Kingpin of Crime—has returned to New York, establishing himself publicly as an altruistic entrepreneur and philanthropist. Spider-Man knows better, but he can’t uncover Fisk’s scheme that, if executed, will make the crime lord “too big to fail.”
When a new threat—a deadly doppelganger with Spider-Man’s suit and abilities—wreaks havoc in the streets, can the real wall-crawler prove his innocence? With the clock ticking and lives on the line, can Spider-Man stop the brutal rampage of the Blood Spider? Will Spider-Man fall to his fears and foes, or will he rise and be greater?
The book arrives on August 21st, so you have plenty of time to read the book before the Spider-Man game arrives on September 7th.
