The Press Release:
Announced earlier today at Polygon, fans will return to the SPIDER-VERSE this August in a brand-new EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE limited series! Over the course of five issues, EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE will introduce brand-new Spider-heroes as well as catch up with classic favorites such as Araña, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Man: India! Each thrilling issue will contain three stories packed with debuts, new status quos, and seeds for an overarching saga that will set the stage for THE END OF SPIDER-VERSE, a new epic launching later this year.
“Marvel has decided to do the unthinkable, go big, and bring the saga of the comic book Spider-Verse to a fiery conclusion,” Slott shared with Polygon. “Yes, that’s right. Later this year we shall all bear witness to THE END OF THE SPIDER-VERSE!”
Check out designs for three of the new heroes you’ll meet in the series and don’t miss a single SPIDER-VERSE tale when EDGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE begins this August! For more information, visit Marvel.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just LOVED the “Spider-verse” film we got a few years ago but I must admit that I was NOT following any of comic book pages renditions of this so pardon my lack of background on it all. I like the creative team behind this one and feel it will be an exciting limited series but will likely be purchasing it when its collected into a single volume. Who knows, maybe some of the characters we find in this series will come to “life” in one of the Spider-verse films. What do you readers think about this one? Chime in down below in the comments if you have something topical to add to the mix. We shall see you again soon, so please stay safe out there.
