The Beyond Era Of ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Heats Up In December

by Brendan M. Allen

Launching next month, a new era of Amazing Spider-Man beyond your wildest expectations begins when Peter Parker is hospitalized and Ben Reilly takes over as the new Spider-Man. And that’s only the start. 

Brought to you by an all-star lineup of writers and artists including Patrick Gleason, Cody Ziglar, Zeb Wells, Kelly Thompson, and Saladin Ahmed, the Spider-Man mythos is ready to sling webs into uncharted new territory. And then, come December, this explosive saga will see exciting developments, including an epic showdown between Miles Morales and Ben Reilly, a possible rekindled romance between Aunt May and Doc Ock, and more.

Writer Cody Ziglar and artist Ivan Fiorelli team up to reunite one of the most controversial couples in comics history in Amazing Spider-Man #80.BEY. With her nephew at death’s door, May Parker is not just going to sit around accepting that Peter’s ailments aren’t solvable with conventional means. Aunt May is going to seek unconventional means by way of her ex-fiancé Doctor Octopus.

Then it’s new Spider-Man vs. newest Spider-Man in Saladin Ahmed and Carlos Gómez’s Amazing Spider-Man #81. The Beyond Corporation paid a lot of money for the Spider-Man trademark and does not take kindly to an unlicensed Spider-Man running around Brooklyn. So it’s up to Ben Reilly to take Miles Morales down.

Something horribly wrong is happening at the McCarthy Medical Center. Check in on Peter Parker’s recover in Saladin Ahmed and Jorge FornèsAmazing Spider-Man #82. Mary Jane Watson is trying to nurse the bedridden Peter to health, but when Peter’s roommate disappears, MJ has to step up. Can MJ and a nonmobile Peter get to the bottom of this hospital mystery?

Next up, the creator behind the biggest cover in the last decade is going to show you what he can do with one of the biggest Spider-Moments in decades when Patrick Gleason takes over writing and art duties in Amazing Spider-Man #83. The Web-Head is facing unbeatable odds again. Can he rise to the occasion and save the day?

Writer Cody Ziglar returns in Amazing Spider-Man #84 alongside artist Paco Medina. The events of ASM #80.BEY have set Doctor Octopus on a collision course with the Beyond Corporation and their Spider-Hero in residence. Ben Reilly isn’t the only one with new tricks up his sleeve, or, in Ock’s case, MANY sleeves.

December will also see an exciting Beyond tie-in in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #33 by writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Michele Bandini. The events of Amazing Spider-Man #81 open up a can of worms and send Miles and Shift on a quest that will have dire effects on both of them. What does this mean for Ben Reilly? 

Amazing Spider-Man #75 hits stands on October 6th.
