Marvel Comics is starting off the year with a web-swing. The newest Spider-Man book will be debuting, as Non-stop Spider-Man lands in stores.
Maybe the most oddly named Spidey book ever, the long awaited Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 is coming to stands to kick off 2021. From writer Joe Kelly and artist Chris Bachalo, the book promises to be a big one.
Marvel says that Non-Stop Spider-Man will exclusively bring the webbed-wonder’s biggest foes to bear, and feature explosive action. Basically, non-stop action. It’s probably fair to presume that’s where the title comes from.
“I get asked who my favorite character is to draw and I reply Spider-Man. I get asked who my favorite writers are to work with and I reply with Joe Kelly. I get asked why I draw comics and I reply that I like telling stories—fast stories,” Bachalo said. “As the name implies, Non-Stop Spider-Man, starting with panel one, is a breakneck, furiously paced Spider-Man story with the purpose to break ankles and knees and then leave you wanting more.”Chris Bachalo
“Non-Stop Spider-Man is, for me, the best of what Marvel comics can be: relentless action, epic storytelling, mind-melting art, and relevant themes, all grounded by the heart and soul of one of my all-time favorite characters, Spider-Man,” Kelly said. “Chris and I want to redline your adrenaline and shatter your hearts, giggling the whole time. Please sign your waivers and gather your safety gear of choice before issue one comes out. I truly can’t wait for this. Buckle up, Tigers.”Joe Kelly
Marvel has also revealed the covers for that first issue, which you can spy below. Well, in part anyway. In the gallery is artist David Finch’s work, as well as a part of Chris Bachalo’s.
The finished product there will be die-cut, which we don’t see to often anymore. The rest will be unveiled some time soonish.
