Spider-Man 2099 to star in his own on-going series!

March 27th, 2014 by Jake Tanner Comments

That’s right folks! Spidey 2099 is going to make his solo debut with his own All-New Marvel NOW! title! The futuristic web-slinger has been seen in the critically acclaimed Superior Spider-Man written by Dan Slott, but now long-time fans will be able to see him in his own book written by none other than Peter David, the writer of the original series in the 1990’s along with art done by friend of the site, William Sliney of Fearless Defenders acclaim!

“Miguel is now trapped in the present day Marvel Universe, so straight away we have to deal with the fact that in the greatest of Marvel traditions, we have a hero out of time,” Sliney says, referring to Captain America who was frozen in the 1940s and awaked in modern times. “I’m looking forward to drawing that iconic costume in the surroundings of some of New York’s gritty and textured looking neighborhoods.”

What do you guys think of this huge news? This nerd will be checking it out based on the creative team alone, but I’m interested in what long-time fans of Miguel have to say about the news! Big ups to for the scoop!

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
