Even before the release of Edge of Spider-Verse #2, Spider-Man fans have wondered if the alternate version of Gwen Stacy, who’d been bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Peter, would be getting her own monthly series. Certainly, it seemed possible given the overwhelming positive reaction. Well, wonder no more. In the “Retailer Exclusive: Meet Marvel” panel at this year’s New York Comic Con:
During this “closed door” panel…Marvel also revealed that the recently introduced Spider-Woman known as “Spider-Gwen” would be getting her own ongoing series in February, 2015. This new title, spinning out of the critically-acclaimed Edge of Spider-Verse #2 story, will see writer Jason Latour and artist Robbi Rodriguez returning to the character.
There was no new artwork or further details released by Marvel. Nevertheless, it appears that, unlike her 616 counterpart, Gwen will survive Spider-Verse. The question is what the title of this new ongoing series will be (I’m thinking either The Amazing Spider-Woman, or Gwen Stacy: Spider-Woman), and whether or not it will take place in her world…or the 616 Marvel Universe.
