FIRST LOOK: SPIDER-MAN & THE X-MEN #1 Brings the Wallcrawler to the Classroom in December!

November 11th, 2014 by Marc Comments

Now that Peter Parker is experienced in school work he’s off to face the ultimate class…

This December, the newest member of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning swings into action in SPIDER-MAN & THE X-MEN #1 – the new ongoing series from rising stars Elliot Kalan and Marco Failla! That’s right, it doesn’t take an X-Gene to sculpt the next generation of young mutants and Peter Parker is happy to take on his new position as the Jean Grey School’s new Special Guidance Counsellor. But keeping young mutants on the straight and narrow isn’t the webhead’s only reason for being there!

“He’s there because Wolverine asked him to do it,” says series writer Elliot Kalan in an interview with, “though being a teacher isn’t the extent of his mission. Before Wolverine died, he had a suspicion that something was amiss at the school and that one of the students wasn’t what they seemed. Only he didn’t know which student. It’s Spidey’s job to find the truth – though he can’t help but hope to also have a positive influence on the lives of the students.”

Though the rest of the faculty might not be down with their newest member, especially when he leads his group of students into battle against Sauron and Stegron, the Dinosaur Man! That’s right – it’s a prehistoric villain team up 65 million years in the making. And you can be there for it when the webhead swings into action with the next generation of mutants in SPIDER-MAN & THE X-MEN #1 – on sale this December!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
