Spider-Man’s Friends & Foes Join The Secret Invasion!
This is a tie-in that makes sense to me. We know that the stories in Amazing Spider-Man have their own schedule and that's why it's not directly involved (just like Fantastic Four).
With Spider-Man kind of stuck in the Savage Land fighting Skrulls, it makes sense to see what is going on back in Manhattan. It's also always nice when Jackpot puts in an appearance. We all want to know what her deal is. I think we all it to be Mary Jane. That just seems too...obvious and easy. I would think Marvel has something else up their sleeve with her. I wouldn't mind a Jackpot mini-series. Who's with me?
Looking at the last image in the preview, can we assume that Spidey does make it back to New York (yeah I know he will eventually, he just hasn't yet in Secret Invasion) or could that be another Skrull?
The year’s top-selling event, Secret Invasion, continues as Spider-Man’s friends & foes get drawn into war with the Skrulls! Secret Invasion: The Amazing Spider-Man, from red-hot scribe Brian Reed (Ms. Marvel, Secret Invasion: Frontline) and fan favorite artist Marco Santucci team up to show just what happens when New York is packed full of Skrulls…and Spider-Man’s nowhere to be found. What’s happened to the wall-crawler? And more importantly, can Jackpot and the rest of Spider-Man’s friends (and foes) survive a deadly new Super Skrull?
Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on Secret Invasion: The Amazing Spider-Man and all other Secret Invasion tie-ins, as they continue to sell out quickly! The summer’s #1 comic book event has hit your friendly neighborhood—and Jackpot may be New York’s last hope!
