BEN REILLY: SPIDER-MAN #1 hits your local comic book store January 19th, but thanks to Marvel Comics, Monkeys Fighting Robots has an exclusive four-page preview for you.
About the issue:
BECAUSE YOU DEMANDED IT! Iconic Spider-Man scribe J.M. DeMatteis (KRAVEN’S LAST HUNT, SPIDER-MAN: THE LOST YEARS) returns to spin his webs once more within the Spidey mythos, this time joined by explosive artist David Baldeón (WEB WARRIORS, DOMINO)! Together, they’re bringing you unlocked memories in the life of BEN REILLY, A.K.A. SPIDER-MAN! Darkness looms over New York City as murders begin to pile up…but how are they all connected? Do the answers Ben is looking for reside in the haunted halls of the RAVENCROFT INSTITUTE? Find out as we return to the era when Ben Reilly was the one, true SPIDER-MAN!
The issue is by writer J.M. DeMatteis and artist David Baldeon, with colors by Israel Silva, and letters by Joe Caramagna. The main cover is by Steve Skroce and Dave Stewart.
As alluded to in the solicit text above, BEN REILLY: SPIDER-MAN will focus on “untold” stories from Reilly’s time as the one-and-only webslinger. The cover even features an old-school trade dress, which is a really nice touch.
