Spider-Boy's Spectacular Debut Scores a Second Printing

SPIDER-MAN #7 returns to shops on May 17!

Yesterday, fans witnessed the stunning introduction of SPIDER-BOY in Dan Slott and Mark Bagley’s SPIDER-MAN #7! This sold-out issue will return to shops next month with a brand-new variant cover by Luciano Vecchio and a virgin edition of Spider-Boy co-creator Humberto Ramos’ Spoiler Variant Cover! The mystery behind Spider-Man’s long-lost sidekick will continue to unravel in future issues of SPIDER-MAN and his outrageous origin story will be told this June in EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #3 in a story by Slott and Ramos!

Over time, Marvel fans have met a host of new heroes from throughout the Spider-Verse! Miles MoralesGhost-SpiderSpider-Man NoirSpider-Punk, and so many more have weaved their way into the Marvel Universe and into fan’s hearts. But none of them have been anything like SPIDER-BOY. Not originating from the Multiverse at all, Spider-Boy’s been here all along and starred in some of the greatest stories in Spider-Man history! Hasn’t he? 

“I can't wait for people to meet Spider-Boy, and the unique role he's going to play in both Spider-Man's world and the Marvel Universe,” Slott said. “I grew up reading Spider-Man comics. He's my favorite character in all of fiction. All I ever wanted to do was tell stories with THIS cast, and it's been the coolest thing ever to co-create some of the characters who populate it. And this kid, this Spider-Boy, is THE one I'm most psyched about!”
