“If you thought 2020 held some huge Spidey surprises (the return of the Green Goblin, the reveal of Kindred as Harry Osborn, the Sin-Eater’s reign of terror), you ain’t seen nothing yet,” Editor Nick Lowe promises. “Nick Spencer is telling the biggest stories in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN history and they can’t fit in a normal comic, so we’re GIANT-SIZING, starting with the cacophonous climax of ‘King’s Ransom!’"

Find out Kingpin’s goal and how it violates all natural law. Learn more about the years’ old enmity between Tombstone and Robbie Robertson. And discover what’s next for the fan-favorite frenemy, Boomerang. All this and more as Spider-Man’s whole status quo is turned upside down in one explosive showdown! Don’t miss GIANT-SIZE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN: KING’S RANSOM #1 by Nick Spencer and Rogê Antônio (X-MEN RED, CONAN THE BARBARIAN) when it arrives in May!
