Marvel has announced, that following Amazing Spider-Man #600, the company will debut Web of Spider-Man in October.Â This will be a new ongoing title that will feature Spider-Girl stories in the issue as well.
â€œWith the â€˜Gauntletâ€™ storyline starting up and many classic adversaries of Spider-man coming back to the book, we wanted to find a place to tell you more about them without it eating up too many pages of the thrice-weekly Amazing Spider-Man,â€ explained series editor Steve Wacker. â€œSo while were tossing ideas around on where to best put that stuff, beleaguered assistant Tom Brennan came up with the notion to bring back the â€œWebâ€ title as a way to give a home to stories to people caught up in Peteâ€™s life. Starting with the first issueâ€™s Kaine story by JM DeMatteis and then continuing onto stories about Electro, the Rhino, the Lizard and many more by Web-Head Fred van Lente and regular Spidey artist Barry Kitson, the stories here directly impact what weâ€™re doing in Amazing Spider-Man!â€
The company is packing a lot into this first $3.99 issue, including a zombie variant cover – because we all know people are clamoring for more zombie variants.
WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #1

Penciled by VAL SEMEIKS, RON FRENZ & MORE!
Cover by PASCUAL FERRY
Zombie Variant by MIRCO PIERFEDERICI
Itâ€™s the first new Spider-Man monthly series in two years and it kicks off with a bang, as one of Spider-Man greatestâ€”and most controversialâ€”foes returns!Â Each extra-sized issue of Web of Spider-Man features your favorite Spider-Man writers and artists presenting canâ€™t-miss Spidey stories!
So they’re launching a new series and hyping the fact that Barry Kitson will EVENTUALLY draw stories for the book? Weird.
Spiderman = the new wolverine!

The logic is absurd, but hey, whatevers.
@ Ricco Spider-Man = the old Spider-Man
They did all this just before OMD. We had Amazing, Friendly Neighborhood and Sensational.
And Spider Girl had her own book didnt she? If people wanted those stories they would have bought that book, right?
I already buy 3-4 Spidey comics a month; I may jump on Ultimate when it relaunches; why does Marvel assume that we need another one?
They want more money, bottom line. Though I think he needs to get back with MJ and stop being a little *** living with Aunt May and eating her Wheatie cakes..

Why not just make the Amazing title 4 x a month?!?
