“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.
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.
