J.J. Abrams & Son Make Marvel Comics Debut With New Spider-Man Mini-Series

by James Ferguson

Marvel Comics has been dropping cryptic teasers on their social feeds for the past few days, having fans excited for everything from a Spider-Man / Fantastic Four event to a comic book adaptation of Sam Raimi’s unproduced Spider-Man 4. The publisher has now revealed all. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams and his son Henry Abrams are collaborating for a new Spider-Man mini-series debuting in September. Illustrated by Sara Pichelli and colored by Dave Stewart, Spider-Man introduces a new villain named Cadaverous shrouded in mystery.

J.J. Abrams told The New York Times:

The story shows Peter Parker in a way you haven’t seen him before.

I would have liked if there was more to the title itself to distinguish it from the previously published ongoing series of the same name, especially since this is a mini-series.

Henry Abrams added:

Spider-Man is one of those super heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him. He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero. I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.

Spider-Man #1 features a main cover by Olivier Coipel. It’s set for release in September 2019.
