Marvel Comics has released a brand new trailer to celebrate the announcement of the creative team behind ‘Spider-Man #1’
The publisher has revealed that legendary spider-artist Sara Pichelli will be teaming up with J.J. Abrams and his son Henry to bring the new title to life, promising a Spider-Man story ‘we’ve not seen before’
“Having these geniuses working together on Spider-Man, the greatest fictional character of all time, couldn’t be better,” Lowe exclaimed, a sentiment shared by the Abrams. “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.”
Check out the trailer below featuring Executive Editor Nick Lowe and writers J.J. and Henry Abrams!
Henry Abrams went on to shed more light on the creative team’s thinking behind the scenes. “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,” he said. “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.”
“Cadaverous is one of the most terrifying Spider-Man villains of all time – and that’s saying something,” Lowe warned. “Spidey has faced the Green Goblin, Carnage, Venom, and Cadaverous might be even scarier and a little bit grosser than any of them.”
Cadaverous, a terrifying new villain, will force Spidey to make some of the hardest choices of his life. Can he protect MJ, Manhattan…or even himself?
SPIDER-MAN #1 arrives in comic shops on 18th September, on the Marvel Comics App, and on Marvel.com!
