'Marvel's Spider-Man' Swings Into the Pages of Marvel Comics

'Marvel’s Spider-Man: City of War' to debut this March!

The fan-favorite and critically acclaimed "Marvel’s Spider-Man" game, exclusively on PlayStation 4, has taken the world by storm - and now the video game’s web-slinger is leaping into the pages of Marvel comics! Starting this March, all your favorite Spidey characters are presented in new and surprising scenarios as Peter Parker’s civilian and superhuman worlds collide in the game’s original, action-packed story with MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: CITY AT WAR!

Marvel’s Spider-Man: City of War

After protecting his beloved New York City for eight years, Spidey finally has the opportunity to put Wilson Fisk behind bars for good. But removing the Kingpin from the mean streets of Manhattan has its own repercussions…as a new threat, the mysterious crime lord called Mister Negative, rises to fill the vacuum and threaten all that Peter holds dear, including the lives of not only his beloved Aunt May but also his former girlfriend, and current Daily Bugle investigative reporter, Mary Jane Watson.

“While creating the game, the writing team’s goal was to pay homage to Spider-Man’s rich history while also shaking things up to keep players on the edge of their seats,” said Marvel Games executive creative director Bill Rosemann. “Now we’re thrilled to see our game’s original story swing full circle and come to life in the pages of this all-new comic book series in the Mighty Marvel Manner!”

“Editor in Chief CB Cebulski and editor Mark Basso have assembled an amazing creative team to bring our game’s story to life in classic comic style,” added Rosemann. “First we have fan-fave writer Dennis Hopeless, who flexed his Spidey muscles during his smash-hit run on SPIDER-WOMAN. I happily teamed with Dennis when we collaborated on the acclaimed AVENGERS ARENA and AVENGERS UNDERCOVER series, so I’m thrilled to be working with him again. On the art side we have penciler Michele Bandini, who combines clear storytelling with dynamic action and intense detailing to deliver a fresh take on our Spidey’s world. Topping it all off is the main cover by Clayton Crain, who readers will remember as the awesome artist of SPIDER-GEDDON #0, joined by vibrant variant covers by a who’s who of artists, including Marvel Games’ own art director Tim Tsang, David Nakayama, Gerardo Sandoval and the legendary Adi Granov. Get ready, True Believers, because the blockbuster action game you love playing — or in some cases, have only heard raves about — is leaping your way in the Mighty Marvel Manner!”

Including all-new story moments never before seen in the game as well as bonus behind the scenes content, MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: CITY OF WAR #1 is the first in a series of new stories from the growing Marvel Gamerverse as we press start on a brand-new Marvel Universe this March!

The six-part MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: CITY AT WAR series, written by Dennis Hopeless with art by Michele Bandini, will make its debut in March 2019! The main cover is by Clayton Crain. Don't miss the following variants: Marvel Games Variant cover by Tim Tsang, Sinister Six Variant cover by David Nakayama, a variant cover by Gerardo Sandoval, and a variant cover by Adi Granov.
