Amazing Spider-Man 60th Anniversary

Well’s “Shed” storyline is considered one of the best Spider-Man stories of all time, his bold work on NEW WARRIORS laid the groundwork for CIVIL WAR. He’s currently making waves within the Spidey mythos in the “Beyond” era. Now hit Romita Jr. is the definitive AMAZING SPIDER-MAN artist who made his grand return to Marvel Comics last year. He specifically returned for this run and is back, bringing Spider-Man’s world to the page with his singular, unmatched finesse.

This April, all the classic elements fans love about Peter Parker. In addition, there will be surprising new takes on your favorite foes, and the answer to the question that will be on everyone’s mind: WHAT DID SPIDER-MAN DO?


Peter’s on the outs with the FF. He’s on the outs with the Avengers. He’s even on the outs with Aunt May! No one wants to see Spider-Man after a terrible and mysterious incident except for Doctor Octopus. Ock’s on his tail, and the Master Planner has something truly terrible planned for when he gets his tentacles on Spidey. All that, and Tombstone makes a move that will remind readers why he’s one of the most terrifying villains…

“Ever since my father told my brother and me that Spider-Man/Peter Parker lived close to our home in Queens, NYC, we were hooked! We talked Spider-Man on long drives to family get-togethers, and it was as if we had an extra family member!”
