In Marvels we had a chance to see the entirety of Marvel history through the eyes of a normal photographer. In March 2019, we are going to get another history of the Marvel Universe, but this time through the eyes of Peter Parker – the Amazing Spider-Man – as he ages through the decades.
Join acclaimed writer Chip Zdarsky (Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel 2-In-One) and superstar Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley (Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man) for SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY – a tale encompassing the entire history of Spider-Man from beginning to end, set against the key events of each decade! As the series kicks off in March, the year is 1966, and Peter Parker must determine where his power and responsibility truly lies as the nation becomes embroiled in the Vietnam War.
“I guess I’m just not done with Spidey! This is an idea I’ve had since I first started working for Marvel, something that explores the characters and the Marvel universe on a deeper level, where time changes both the characters and the world,” said series writer Chip Zdarsky. “Being able to span decades with one of the most iconic Spider-Man artists ever, Mark Bagley, is surreal. He’s creating fresh takes on classic characters and moments in really dynamic ways.”
It will be interesting to see how this story plays out, especially since we’ve seen a very old Spider-Man sharing his regrets for what happened to Mary Jane in other old Spider-Man stories. Spider-Man: Life Story #1 is scheduled to arrive in March, and because it is Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley, I’m pretty sure this will be on my pull-list.
