Today’s breaking Spidey news is that February will bring a brand new mini-series for would-be Spidey sidekick Alpha by Joshua Hale Fialkov (writer of DC’s excellent “I, Vampire”) and Nuno Plati. Some important clues to the end of Amazing Spider-Man and the start of Superior Spider-Man can be found in the announcement:
– Alpha is not the new Spider-Man. This theory had largely died out already anyway, but now we know.
– Alpha will be checking in with Peter at Horizon regularly, and the series is set post-ASM #700, so we now know that Peter Parker will live and will still be working at Horizon Labs.
