‘Hallows’ Eve’ will spin out of the upcoming Dark Web event

The new character, who just debuted in ‘Amazing Spider-Man, will get a solo miniseries next year.

Hallows’ Eve, a new character introduced in the latest issue of Amazing Spider-Man and a major player in the upcoming Dark Web crossover event, will spin off into her own miniseries next March.

Writer Erica Schultz and artist Michael Dowling will chronicle the story of Janine Godbe, the longtime girlfriend of Spider-Clone Ben Reilly, who took on the new identity with a little help from the Goblin Queen, aka Madelyne Pryor (also a clone!).

“Having the opportunity to pen a character’s first solo miniseries is incredibly exciting and incredibly nerve racking!” Schultz told Marvel.com. “Despite Janine having been created in the 90s, this is the first time we’ll see her on her own for more than just a few pages. I really hope fans enjoy a deeper look into Janine and what makes her tick.”

Mary Jane Watson teams with the Black Cat for new ‘Dark Web’ miniseries

Jed MacKay and Vincenzo Carratù bring together the former rivals in December.

Two of Spider-Man’s ex’s will team up in a new miniseries this December, as a part of the bigger Dark Web crossover event Marvel announced at the San Diego Comic Con earlier this year.

The series will be written by Jed McKay, who wrote the most recent Black Cat series as well as the Black Cat/Mary Jane one-shot that tied into the “Beyond” storyline in Amazing Spider-Man. He will work with artist Vincenzo Carratù on the series, who has drawn several series for Dynamite in recent years.

“I’ve kind of lost track of how many lives Felicia has left at this point, but she keeps coming back- and this time she’s brought a friend,” MacKay told Marvel.com. “Getting back to Mary Jane and Black Cat after their one-shot last year has been a delight—and seeing how they’ve been catching up on all the drama that’s happened since then has been, well, catnip.”

Spider-Man’s gonna have a busy Fall

Marvel reveals more about the upcoming ‘Dark Web’ event, plus Gold Goblin, Hallow’s Eve and more.

As the temperatures cool down, the Spider-Verse will heat up — in San Diego this week, Marvel shared details on several Spider-Man related titles and events that will keep the wall-crawler busy through the end of the year.

First let’s talk about Dark Web, the Spider-Man/X-Men crossover event spearheaded by Zeb Wells that involves the Goblyn Queen and Chasm, aka Ben Reilly. The story will begin in “prelude” issues throughout November (in Amazing Spider-Man, for example), followed by December’s Dark Web Alpha #1 where Wells will be joined by Adam Kubert to kick things off in earnest. From there, the story continues in Amazing Spider-Man as well as various tie-in one-shots and limited series.  

Marvel released the cover for Dark Web Alpha, by Ryan Stegman. Here’s his line art:
