To celebrate Free Comic Book Day this weekend, Sony and Marvel have announced they will be publishing a new comic book that serves as a prequel to Marvel's Spider-Man 2. Participating comic book stores in the USA will have copies for you to pick up, and the issue will also be available for download in the Marvel Unlimited app. It shall then be distributed worldwide at a later date.
A PlayStation Blog post about the special comic book teases that The Hood will be the main villain — in the comic book, that is, not the actual game — and the story will revolve around Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and MJ as they grapple with school, a journalism career, and the fact there are now two Spider-Men in New York. "In this story, their lives collide as Peter, Miles, and MJ attempt to balance their responsibilities to the city, and each other. They keep coming back to one of the main themes of the comic: is magic real?"
Here's the comic book's full cover art:
Marvel's Spider-Man writer Christos Gage penned the issue while the art comes from Ig Guara. "We know you’ve all been patiently waiting for news on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, and we thank you for hanging in there with us," narrative director Jon Paquette said.
Will you be grabbing this comic book issue for yourself? Let us know in the comments below.
How about an actual new Trailer lol
And so it begins
I'll buy it if there's a digital version! No interest in physical.
Insomniac, now that's a studio that knows how to deliver
@KidRyan there will be via marvel unlimited
I was hoping the uk would get a physical comic book
Loved DC did a 6 part comic prequal for Gotham Knights with Batman: Gotham Knights Gilded City.
Hopefully this becomes a trend. Some Manga prequels for jRPGs would be great also.
I like.... Lots!
Comics came first & eventually gaming caught up!
Been reading Spiderman since the 70s cos I'm old!
Avoiding all the so called "leak" pieces & vids, just in case they're right but I will get this..
A pre-story is good, spoilers are not!
Keep webslinging! Nuff Said!
@paulbuck1996 Thanks for sharing that! I'll try and remember to look after it's out.
Not generally a fan of linking stories out of the medium of games, the VAST majority will miss out, but as Spider-man was originally a comic this is pretty cool.
