There's some good news and bad news about the Scarlet Spider. The bad news is its not Ben Reilly. The good news is Chris Yost and Ryan Stegman are preparing is for a grand adventure featuring Kaine in his former nemesis' guise.
Despite voicing my opinion on why Reilly should still be alive, I'm pretty excited about this series and where it could go. Marvel shared a first look for the first issue today.
Get ready for a new brand of web-slinging action in your first look at Scarlet Spider #1! From the red-hot creative team of Chris Yost & Ryan Stegman, Kaine – the all-new Scarlet Spider – finds himself on the run in Texas after saving New York City from becoming the world’s largest spider nest during Spider-Island. But when his escape is stopped by a super-powered crime syndicate, Kaine must put an end to their corruption the only way he knows how…violently.== TEASER ==
“Scarlet Spider is a book that can deal with a character much like Peter Parker but at darker, more difficult place in his life,” said Stephen Wacker, Marvel Senior Editor. “The violent choices he’s made through years of struggle—the sins of youth, so to speak—have come at a brutal cost. He may hope that the things he’s done will be left to the dusty, yellowed pages of history, but someone ALWAYS remembers who you used to be.”
Redefining power & responsibility, no fan can miss the brutal debut of Scarlet Spider #1 hitting comic shops everywhere, this January.
Check out the preview.
