...Does whatever an old lady can...
I've gotten kind of jaded over the years to seeing my name on covers or in solicitations, that sort of thing. But I have to admit, I got a little tingle when I saw Marvel's solicitation for this book. I actually started my career at Marvel back in 1993, haven't done any work there at all since '98, and have never written for the company ever.
So to me, this is really exciting! I'm now an extended part of Spider-Man's family!
Your Spidey-Senses are about to tingle a bit more with the debut of Amazing Spider-Man Family #1! Exploring the lives of Spider-Man and the rest of his Brand New Day cast, this brand new series kicks off with 104 pages of friendly neighborhood action! What happened the day after Uncle Ben died? J.M De Matteis & Alex Cal have the answers! And what was life like for Mr. and Mrs. Parker before May “Mayday” Parker was born? You’ll get he answer, courtesy of Tom DeFalco & Ron Frenz! Take a look back at the origin of Venom and a special Aunt May Story by Keith Champagne & Shawn Moll! Plus, your first look inside the Marvel Apes universe, as Karel Kesel & Ramon Bachs, the creators behind September’s simian sensation, reveal the secret origin of Spider-Monkey!
Wrapped up in a jaw dropping cover by Adi Granov, Spidey fans can’t miss the all new Amazing Spider-Man Family!
