In the most Marvel of Marvel announcements, the publisher has announced that October’s Spider-Woman #5 will also be the 100th issue featuring the adventures of Jessica Drew. Marvel has added up all the previous issues of Spider-Woman comics to get to that number.
Spider-Woman #5 (aka Spider-Woman #100) will be a special, giant-sized issue from writer Karla Pacheco and artist Pere Perez. It will follow Jessica as she continues feuding with Octavia Vermis, the daughter of Spider-Woman’s Hydra foe, Otto Vermis. We’ll discover long-hidden truths about Jessica’s origin, family, and future.
Writer Karla Pacheco says:
When Jessica Drew made her first appearance in Marvel Spotlight #32 on February 10th, 1977, I was also making my first appearance. One hundred issues and 43 years later, it’s been a wild journey for both myself and Spider-Woman. I am beyond proud to be part of the amazing team bringing Jess back in this series, and I think it’s so incredible we get to pay tribute to the history of Spider-Woman, while setting up the next, absolutely MINDBLOWING chapter of Jessica Drew’s adventures. Seriously, if you thought the first 5 issues were bonkers…I assure you, we’re just getting started.
Spider-Woman #5 / #100 features a cover by Greg Land. It’s set for release in October 2020.
