We’ve been watching the new title announcements and teams roll out for Marvel’s Fresh Start program beginning in March, and now we’ve got something definite about the web-slinger.
Amazing Spider-Man will kick off with a new #1 in July 2018 written by Nick Spencer and drawn by Ryan Ottley.
Marvel EIC CB Cebulski says:
After his ten year run on the title, writer Dan Slott leave some big shoes to fill. But after reading what Nick Spencer has planned for our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, I can assure you that the future of Peter Parker and his pals is in good hands. This new #1, with jaw-dropping art by Ryan Ottley and Laura Martin, is not only a perfect jumping on point for new readers – it builds on everything Dan’s been doing for the past ten years and seamlessly continues the adventures of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler! Amazing Spider-Man is one of our flagships titles, steering the Marvel Universe in an exciting, new direction, perfect for readers new and old.
We will be able to read the first Amazing Spider-Man story from Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley in the Amazing Spider-Man/Guardians of the Galaxy Free Comic Book Day issue arriving on May 5th, 2018.
Marvel have also released the cover to the FCBD issue by Ryan Ottley:
