Well the news has been officially released, the cryptic spider-web countdown was indeed an announcement of a new Spider-Man series from Marvel. The surprise is that artist Sara Pichelli is teaming with J.J. Abrams and his son Henry for a new five-issue mini-series.
In the new series, Spider-Man fans will be introduced to a new villain called Cadaverous, who has his targets set on Peter Parker, and Mary Jane Watson. We don’t know who Cadaverous is, but I’m guessing we’ll all be shocked… SHOCKED… with the reveal.
“Spider-Man is one of those super heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him,” said Henry Abrams in an interview with The New York Times. “He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero. I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.”
Spider-Man #1 is scheduled to arrive in September 2019.
