Slott + Bagley return to Spider-Man this fall

Two veteran Spider-Man creators team up for a new series that will feature the return of Morlun.

When you think of Marvel creators Dan Slott and Marrk Bagley, one word* comes to mind — Spider-Man. Between the two of them, they have probably written and drawn a million panels featuring Peter Parker’s alter-ego.**

And now they’re returning to the wall-crawler for a new series that will spin out of the upcoming Edge of Spider-Verse anthology series that Slott is contributing to — one titled, simply, Spider-Man.

“How does it feel to be writing Spider-Man again? Like I’m home,” Slott told Marvel.com. “Like there’s nowhere else I’d rather be. How does it feel to be working on it with Mark Bagley, one of the greatest Spidey icons of all time?! Honored, excited, and unstoppable! Mark and I are two guys who live to tell Spider-Man stories. Cut us and we bleed Spider-Man. And now Marvel has entrusted the two of us to bring back their monthly– adjectiveless– Spider-Man title!”

The new series will feature Peter Parker working for Norman Osborn and using a — wait, a glider? Are we sure this is Spider-Man? It will also feature appearances by Miles Morales, Silk, Ghost-Spider, Spider-Woman and more, in a story called “The End of the Spider-Verse.”

Here’s more from Marvel on the new series: Morlun is back and he is not alone. Allied with one of the most powerful beings known to the Spider-Verse, the scariest Spider-Villain of all time is making his biggest play and no Spider is safe. Especially not the Chosen Spider himself, Peter Parker. With Peter working for Norman Osborn and using a glider… does he have it coming?

The End of the Spider-Verse will see Peter, Miles, and your favorite characters from previous Spider-Verse stories, along with all-new characters from the upcoming Edge of Spider-Verse mini, slam them all together, and bring the entire Spider-Verse saga to a fiery close,” Slott said. “It’s going to have lots of action, surprises, but, most of all, it’s going to have a lot of heart! Even though this story will be epic, it will also have a profound effect on Peter Parker. You are not going to want to miss this!”

Look for the first issue in October, and check out some preview pages below:
