Journey to the Edge of Spider-Verse

When people talk about the “Marvel Universe,” in most cases they’re referring to a world designated Earth 616, home to the classic incarnations of Marvel Comics’ heroes and villains, but the actual size of the company’s shared universe is much far greater and includes numerous dimensions. In these other dimensions history and even reality is often changed, leading to slight or radically different iterations of Marvel characters.

This September readers will travel to five of these different dimensions and encounter five different incarnations of Marvel’s flagship character, the Amazing Spider-Man, in the “Edge of Spider-Verse” miniseries which features work by a different creative team across each of its five issues. CBR News spoke with Senior Editor and Spider-Man group editor Nick Lowe and writers Jason Latour & David Hine about their contributions to the series, which paves the way for the upcoming “Spider-Verse” event story line, and also features the Marvel Comics debut of writer Gerard Way.

The “Return” of “Superior Spider-Man”

“Superior Spider-Man” #32 and #33 are scheduled for August and September, respectively, from the writing team of Spidey mastermind Dan Slott and his frequent collaborator Christos Gage, along with art from Giuseppe Camuncoli (illustrating issue #32) and Adam Kubert (#33).

These “Superior Spider-Man” issues will once again star Doctor Octopus’ consciousness controlling Peter Parker’s body, telling the story of the nine hours the title character was displaced from the timeline in “Superior” #19. “Is this an untold chapter of the past, a tale of the future, or both?” Gage asked Marvel.com.

Was a DIFFERENT Spider-Man cast member originally going to take Gwen’s place and be killed? Was Gwen killed off behind Stan Lee’s back while he was on a trip to Europe?

Axel-In-Charge 4-18-14

This week, with the final issue of “Superior Spider-Man” now on sale, Alonso discusses the book’s success, and the risk involved with replacing a beloved character like Peter Parker with one of his archenemies for nearly a year and a half. Alonso freely admits he was initially skeptical of the idea, and details his reasons why — and how the story’s reception encourages Marvel to make more bold moves in the future. Also, Alonso shares his enthusiasm for Marvel’s current original graphic novel line, the launches of “Ultimate FF” and “Hulk,” and watching Jason Aaron’s time on the X-books come to a close. Plus, your questions, straight from the CBR forums!

Marvel and DC Comics, the undisputed champs of direct market super-comics, both had fairly huge books come out this week. For Marvel, it was Amazing Spider-Man #583, the guest-star of which helped garner the company a huge media splash, inside the comics industry and outside. For DC, it was the penultimate chapter of their years-in-the-making (and marketing) crossover series Final Crisis #6, which contained what would, in different circumstances, have seemed like a pretty huge development.

Well, they’re both fairly terrible.” – Ron Bailey
