Marvel Comics Going Back To Basics With Spectacular Spider-Man
EW.com reveals the new cover and title with "Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man" by writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Adam Kubert, which will first kick off with a Free Comic Book Day story before officially launching in June.
The announcement of Marvel Comics returning Peter Parker to his roots follows the recent rumor that Marvel Comics is bringing back its iconic characters.
Peter Parker recently became a tech millionaire running his own company, which hasn't been that well received by fans.
Chip Zdarsky offered:
The main book, Amazing Spider-Man, has kept things fresh by stretching the character and his situation. It’s still classic Spider-Man at its core, but transposed into new settings. With this book, we’re using the same Spider-Man in-continuity but shifting the spotlight back to his NYC environment and supporting cast. But even though we’re pushing to make it a more personal book, we’re still going to have big adventures with ramifications that’ll be felt in his other books. If I had, like, a true mission statement for the title though, it would be: “Have fun, have heart, have stakes.” My personal mission statement going into the book is “With great power comes something something I don’t know I’ve never had power before.
He’s misunderstood and underestimated, either as Pete or Spider-Man. He’s the mascot for New York City, and, like a sports mascot, that means he’s beloved by children and endured by adults. He’s the only street-level superhero who could beat a herald of Galactus in a fight. He feels things stronger than any other hero and covers that up with jokes. He’s Spider-Man!
