Stephen Wacker has been in charge of the Spider-Man family titles for some time. With his move to animation, the question was who would replace him.
Today Marvel has announced that Nick Lowe will be the new Senior Editor of all Spider-Man related comics.
“I’ve loved Spider-Man since I stole my brother’s Spidey comics back in the 90’s!” exclaims Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “It’s a huge honor to be working on Marvel’s most popular character. After ten years (!) I’m going to miss the X-Men, but I’m excited to join the incredible group of men and women working on books in the Spider-Man Office.”
"[Writer] Dan Slott is weaving an intricate web for Spider-Man in 2014, and I'm excited to see what Senior Editor Nick Lowe -- a veteran of the X-Men titles -- contributes to the line," says EIC Axel Alonso.
