A New ‘Spider-Man’ Series Spins into Marvel Unlimited
Read issue #1 of 'Spider-Man' by J.J. Abrams and Henry Abrams today. See what other digital comics we’re reading this week.
Acclaimed film director J.J. Abrams, his son, Henry Abrams, plus Miles Morales co-creator Sara Pichelli and colorist Dave Stewart, team up for a cross-generational Spider-Man story that’s ideal for new readers and minted fans.
The introduction of an all-new foe, Cadaverous, “shows Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before," said J.J. at the series’ release. And, for the dad-son duo, this run represents a chance to leave their stamp on a major Marvel staple. "Spider-Man is one of those Super Heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him,” says Henry. “He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero.”
A father-son dynamic is mirrored in the series too. A tragedy from Peter Parker’s past has rendered him an entirely different man in the present, altering his relationship with his teen son, Ben.
We’ll let you see for yourself just how hard this issue hits. With a menace like Cadaverous though, expect the unexpected.
