With ‘Superior’ Spider-Man about to be ushered off stage, what does the future hold for the Sinister ‘Several?’ Superior Foes of Spider-Man writer Nick Spencer recently discussed the future of the villains-centered title with CBR:
Yes, it was really nice because we ran the solicits for issue #12, which the entire Internet told me would never, ever happen! [Laughs] It was a bit of a milestone for us, and I can go ahead and reveal that when the book started, we were told that we had 12 issues. To get to go beyond that is a huge victory for the book, and a testament to the fan response, the very kind reviews, and all the great year-end lists that managed to mention us.
So we’re not done yet! We’re still around, and the bottom line is, we definitely have the time needed to tell the story that we set out to tell. In fact, we got to build it out a bit more. That’s the good news.
Obviously, a book called “The Superior Foes of Spider-Man” starring Boomerang was never destined to be a blockbuster seller, but the very devoted following we’ve attracted has managed to keep us alive thus far. So a big thank you to everyone who keep passionately talking up the book — and issue #12 is not our last issue!
Word of mouth about the title has been extremely positive. If you have not yet checked out Superior Foes, you’re missing a very fun book! Nick Spencer & Steve Lieber work extremely well together on this quality story.
