In 1962, the world watched as teenager Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider…allowing him to become the Amazing Spider-Man! It’s been fifty-seven years since the AMAZING FANTASY #15, the story that brought everyone’s favorite wall-crawler into the Marvel Universe and jumpstarted some of the most adventurous super hero stories ever — but what if Spider-Man had aged at the same rate as our world?
Join acclaimed writer Chip Zdarsky (Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel 2-In-One) and superstar Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley (Amazing Spider-Man, Ultimate Spider-Man) for SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY – a tale encompassing the entire history of Spider-Man from beginning to end, set against the key events of each decade! As the series kicks off in March, the year is 1966, and Peter Parker must determine where his power and responsibility truly lies as the nation becomes embroiled in the Vietnam War.
This sounds really cool.
Based on Zdarsky’s run on Peter Parker: Spectacular Spider-Man, Bagley being arguably the Spider-Man artist, and the prestige format of the series, I expect something truly special.
