Peter Parker is going back to school. Marvel has announced a brand new Spider-Man series that will be an in-continuity look at Peter as a teenager, titled Spidey. Part of Marvel’s All-New, All-Different header, writer Robbie Thompson (TV’s “Supernatural,” “Silk”) and “Marvel Young Gun” artist Nick Bradshaw (“Wolverine and the X-Men,” “Guardians of the Galaxy”) will be tackling the series.
“Everyone remembers their FIRST Spider-Man comic,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “’Spidey’ aims to be perfect as someone’s first Spider-Man comic, or their one thousandth. We’re not looking to re-tell stories here. What Robbie [Thompson] and Nick [Bradshaw] have put together is an exciting new take on Spider-Man at his arguably most iconic incarnation, and will feel fresh to new and old fans alike.”
“Out of the 700+ issues of ‘Amazing Spider-Man’” shares “Spider-Man” Editor Nick Lowe, “Peter Parker was only in high school for thirty issues! Stan and Steve covered a lot, but there’s a lot of the high school and early super hero experience still on the table.”
Spidey will swing into stores later this year.
