Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley told the life story of Peter Parker in Spider-Man: Life Story as if he aged in real time, starting in the 1960s. Now they’ll revisit that concept through the lens of a less trustworthy source in Spider-Man: Life Story Annual #1.
“Working on the original Spider-Man: Life Story was a dream come true for me,” Zdarsky told Marvel.com. “But the problem with the miniseries was that I didn’t have the room to properly tell the life story of one of my all-time favorite characters: J. Jonah Jameson! Getting the chance to revisit this universe with Mark again has been an absolute blast!”
Here’s the description from Marvel: J. Jonah Jameson will do whatever it takes to make the world see that Spider-Man is nothing but a threat and a menace. Will the decades of his obsession bear fruit for Jonah…or be his destruction?
The annual arrives Aug. 4, and Marvel said they have plans to collect the entire series, including the annual, into a hardcover later this year.
