Marvel Comics Releases Spider-Man #1 Teaser Trailer
by James Ferguson
Spider-Man, an upcoming mini-series from writers J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams and artist Sara Pichelli, is set to debut next month from Marvel Comics. The publisher has released a trailer featuring the Abrams and Executive Editor Nick Lowe speaking about the project and featuring some of Pichelli’s artwork.
Having these geniuses working together on Spider-Man, the greatest fictional character of all time, couldn’t be better. We knew [Sara Pichelli’s] stuff – she’s a genius,” J.J. added. “The fact that we got Sara to do this book was the luckiest gift of all time.
The wall-crawler meets a terrifying new villain named Cadaverous in this mini-series, forcing him to make some of the toughest choices of his life. Little is known about this new big bad, but it’s clear there’s a lot at stake in this book.
Henry Abrams added:
Spider-Man in general has been one of the most interesting super hero characters to me – how when he gets stronger, his problems get bigger. A large focus on our series was [Spider-Man] as a person and not just him as a mask. So how does he deal with these real issues? It’s been a pleasure exploring that.
I’m still not crazy about the title of this book. Why doesn’t it have a subtitle? It could get pretty confusing calling it Spider-Man without any additional descriptors when shelving it with the wide lineage of the web-head’s comics.
Cadaverous is one of the most terrifying Spider-Man villains of all time – and that’s saying something. Spidey has faced the Green Goblin, Carnage, Venom, and Cadaverous might be even scarier and a little bit grosser than any of them.
Spider-Man #1 is set to debut on September 18th, 2019.
