Marvel teased the Clone Saga for Miles Morales earlier this week and now we have some details. Beginning in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25, a special oversized anniversary issue, writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Carmen Carnero will put a new spin on this classic storyline.
After months of buildup, the Clone Saga will be the culmination of many of the ongoing story threads that have been haunting Miles since the very beginning of Ahmed’s run. Readers will finally see the full extent of the Assessor’s meddling as his clone creations run rampant through Brooklyn. Designed by superstar artist and Marvel Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero, prepare to meet three distinct Miles clones, each one destined to turn Miles’ super hero career upside down.
“When Peter Parker faced his own ‘Clone Saga’ years ago, he was taking part in what was already one of the most iconic traditions in comics – the hero battling a version of themselves. Since the very first issue of Miles Morales: Spider-Man, I’ve known that I wanted put Miles through that iconic wringer in his own distinctive way,” Ahmed said. “Miles’ Clone Saga is a story that has been months, even years, in the making. We’ve been planting its seeds throughout the series, from the horrors of being abducted by the Assessor to the confrontations and sacrifices of the Ultimatum epic. Moments from the past will come back to haunt Miles, and the events of the story will ensnare everyone from his baby sister to Peter Parker (who knows a thing or two about dealing with clones). The ramifications will be felt for years, and it all starts in April!”
“If you thought the first ‘Clone Saga’ was controversial, wait until you read what Saladin and Carmen do,” Editor Nick Lowe said.
I’ve really enjoyed how Ahmed has been juggling storylines during his run on Miles Morales: Spider-Man so I’m definitely intrigued by this. Miles had an encounter with a clone in an earlier issue, so I’m sure that was just the beginning.
Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 will feature a wraparound cover by Taurin Clarke. It’s set for release in April 2021.
