I love 90s horror-comedy films. My first introduction to the legendary Jeff Daniels was in Arachnophobia on Showtime late one Friday night at a sleepover. I was 7. I learned two new important life concepts from that film: 1). John Goodman is the GOAT!!!! and 2). Arachnophobia is the fear of a bunch of poisonous spiders crawling about as they canvas an entire city spreadout as far as the eye could see! This Halloween Spider-fans beware, Spider-geddon is HERE!!!
Marvel released details today at #SDCC2018 Spiderman-panel about the upcoming mega event that aims to tie-in the fan favorites from across the dimension-spanning Spider-verse. Spinning out of the events of Dan Slott’s Spiderman #800, a nest of titles will be release. Check out the details below for more info:
On October 31, SPIDER-FORCE #1, by writer Christopher Priest and artist Paulo Siquiera, begins a three-part story that sees Kaine step forward for what he’s certain will be a suicide mission. Joined by Jessica Drew, AKA Spider-Woman, Ashley Barton (from the “Old Man Logan” universe), as well as two new characters, Astro-Spider and Spider-Kid, Kaine’s newly minted Spider-Force start a dangerous journey. Has Kaine told everyone the truth behind the mission? The team is assembled, but their first operation may be their last…
Then, this October, VAULT OF SPIDERS unleashes a slew of creative talent into the SPIDER-GEDDON madness! Cullen Bunn, Jed MacKay, Javier Pulido, Sheldon Vella, and more swing into this two-part tale! When the Multiverse is threatened, only a Spider-Army can rescue it. And VAULT OF SPIDERS will introduce a litany of new Spider-heroes to join the fight.Meet Web-Slinger, the Spider-Man from the Wild West, in an unforgettable story by Bunn and Pulido. Witness Supaidaman, the Emissary from Hell—a character inspired by the live-action Spider-Man TV show that aired in Japan in the 1970s—in a story written by MacKay and Vella. And prepare for so much more as the vault continues to creak open!
Finally, the SPIDER-GIRLS enter the swelling storm, brought to you by writer Jody Houser and artist Andres Genolet! In this three-part limited series, May “Mayday” Parker, the original Spider-Girl, joins Anya Corazon, the Prime Universe Spider-Girl, and Annie May Parker, AKA Spiderling, to become the Spider-Girls! May will do anything to protect her brother from the Inheritors, and Anya’s knowledge of the mystical Spider-Totems could save the day, but how does Annie fit into all this? And what chance do three kids have against ageless universal forces!?
Find out on October 24 in SPIDER-GIRLS!
