Marvel’s Spider-centric Spider-Verse crossover event produces a monthly book for one of the Marvel U’s longest standing spider-powered charters- Spider-Woman.
This November, launching directly out of Spider-Verse comes a brand-new ongoing series starring the original Spider-Woman! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at SPIDER-WOMAN #1, the new ongoing series from the critically acclaimed creative team of Dennis Hopeless and Greg Land!
Jessica Drew has been many things – agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., agent of S.W.O.R.D., Avenger and so much more. She’s a hero to her very core, but nothing could prepare her for the multidimensional insanity of Spider-Verse! War has come to anyone with spider powers and they’re being picked off one by one. The supremely powerful Morlun and his twisted family will stop at nothing to eliminate every Spider-Man and every Spider-Woman in every universe.
The key to their survival may rest in the hands of Silk, the newest spider on the block, who’s on the run for her life! Who better to keep her safe than Jessica Drew? An experienced soldier, a fierce combatant, and someone who won’t quit – she’ll lead her spider platoon deep behind enemy lines on a dangerous, universe-spanning adventure if she wants to see tomorrow.
“This is the start of something very big for Spider-Woman,” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “Yes, it’s a big part of Spider-Verse, but this is going to be a character defining first arc for the SPIDER-WOMAN ongoing series.”
The one and only original Spider-Woman is a woman with a mission, and it will take all of her training if she wants to make it out of Spider-Verse alive. Who lives? Who dies? Find out as an all-new dimension hopping adventure explodes out of the pages of Spider-Verse in November’s SPIDER-WOMAN #1!
A Spider-Woman book is yet another comic that’s been a long time coming. The character has really become pretty dang popular with fans since she’s been involved with the Avengers and figured into quite a few Marvel events in the last few years. It’s also pretty iterating to see how Spider-Verse, as an event book in and of itself, is producing a rebirth of sorts for a few spider-themed characters.
Thanks to the nature of the storyline of course, it’s possible to revisit characters like Spider-Man Noire and intro heroes like Spider-Gwen and some of the odder Spidey riffs we’ve seen profiled so far. It’s been pretty neat stuff overall, and now with Spider-Woman’s monthly in the mix and involved int he battle with Morlun, things should get very interesting indeed.
