So as part of Marvel’s “All-New, All-Different” post-Secret Wars imitative, we have heard of no less than nine different Spider-Man related titles, including Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Spider-Woman, Spider-Man 2099, Spider-Gwen, Silk, Web Warriors, Carnage and Venom: Spaceknight. Well, it now appears we may have to add one more title to the list.
At this year’s Comic Con in San Digeo, during Marvel’s Retailers-Only panel, one Dennis L. Barger Jr. of Michigan’s Wonderworld Comics took a couple of photographs during the panel and posted them on his Facebook page. Among them was a slide teasing a possible new series simply entitled Spidey, with the tagline reading “Before he was amazing…” No further information was given as to what specifically it’s about, or who the creative team is, but it’s presumed this new comic will take place during Spider-Man’s early years. So…another version of Untold Tales of Spider-Man with a different name, perhaps? No doubt we’ll learn more about this during the “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends” panel this Sunday.
In any event, what do you folks think of the idea of Marvel putting out a new ongoing Spider-Man flashback title?
UPDATE: As announced at the “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends” panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, Spidey will be a new ongoing series of all-ages, standalone stories of Spider-Man in High School written by Robbie Thompson. Further details revealed in the Spider-Man News From San Diego Comic Con 2015 article on the front page.
