SAVAGE SPIDER-MAN Officially Announced From Marvel Comics As Peter Parker Undergoes Startling Transformation

Marvel Comics has announced Savage Spider-Man, a new series that will portray Peter Parker in a totally different light. Find more details on that, and check out some cover art for the comic, right here!

Non-Stop Spider-Man reached an abrupt end, but writer Joe Kelly is set to return to the wall-crawler's world for follow-up series, Savage Spider-Man! Launching in February, Gerardo Sandoval will be on art duties for a story Marvel Comics says will feature Spider-Man like you’ve never seen him.

Peter Parker finds himself at the middle of the biggest, most wide-ranging adventure he’s ever had and out of the gate it has turned him into a savage beast! Forget everything you know about Spider-Man. All rules and regulations are out the door and Peter Parker may never be the same after this adventure.

"You may think you’ve seen a monstrous or vicious Spider-Man before, but never like this," Spider-Editor Nick Lowe says in a press release shared today. "This book is so intense that you’re going to need to put it down between pages to get your breath back."

Sandoval adds: "Spider-Man is always a huge challenge to draw, he’s not an easy character for an artist. But at the same time Spider-Man is a huge joy to draw and now we have a Savage Spider-Man who provides an even bigger challenge for an artist. I have the pages that I am working on and I can say that I am doing my best work here for sure. Joe Kelly is the kind of writer that understands an artist needs enough room to create great illustrations and it makes my work easier and more fun. I really hope you enjoy this new book as much as I do!"

The "Man-Spider" version of Spider-Man you see below was introduced in Spider-Man: The Animated Series, but later made the leap into the comic books when the hero gained his organic webbing (that didn't last). Seeing this iteration of the character put front and centre again should be a blast.
