This winter we are all looking forward to the release of Disney’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker directed by J.J. Abrams, who also directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While we patiently wait for that film, we can enjoy another project that Abrams and his son Henry Abrams have been working on over at Marvel Comics. In a little over a month they will be releasing a new comic book that will feature everyone’s favorite wall crawler in Spider-Man #1, with artwork by Sara Pichelli. To promote the book, Marvel Entertainment has released a trailer that features the both J.J. and Henry Abrams along with executive editor Nick Lowe. You can check it out above.
As you can see from the video, Lowe is very excited to have this creative team working on a Spider-Man title. “Having these geniuses working together on Spider-Man, the greatest fictional character of all time, couldn’t be better,” Lowe exclaimed, a sentiment shared by the Abrams. “We knew [Sara Pichelli’s] stuff – she’s a genius,” J.J. added. “The fact that we got Sara to do this book was the luckiest gift of all time.”
Henry goes on to to also talk about their take on Spider-Man, “Spider-Man in general has been one of the most interesting super hero characters to me – how when he gets stronger, his problems get bigger,” he said. “A large focus on our series was [Spider-Man] as a person and not just him as a mask. So how does he deal with these real issues? It’s been a pleasure exploring that.”
Speaking of issues, in this title Spider-Man will be taking on a terrifying new villain named Cadaverous, who will according to Marvel force Peter Parker to make some of the hardest decisions of his life. “Cadaverous is one of the most terrifying Spider-Man villains of all time – and that’s saying something,” Lowe warned. “Spidey has faced the Green Goblin, Carnage, Venom, and Cadaverous might be even scarier and a little bit grosser than any of them.”
With so many Spiderverse titles already being put out by Marvel, it will be interesting if the name recognition will drive comic book shoppers to pick this book up, or if this could get lost in all of the titles that Marvel currently floods the market with. I will be picking this book up as I am very curious to see what kind of story the Abrams have put together for Spider-Man.
