PREVIEW: Silk #1

THIS WEEK, straight from the pages of Amazing Spider-Man and Spider-Verse comes a brand new ongoing series starring the newest heroine of the Marvel Universe. Today, Marvel is proud to present your first look at SILK #1, the new series by writer Robbie Thompson (writer for TV’s Supernatural) and rising star artist Stacey Lee!

Cindy Moon exploded out of her bunker and into the Marvel Universe in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man and she never looked back. Bitten by the same radioactive spider that gave Peter Parker his powers on that fateful day, she’s spent her years locked away in a bunker, safe from the threat of Morlun and the Inheritors. Since then, she’s saved Peter Parker’s life (more than once), fought alongside Spider-Woman, braved the Spider-Verse and more!

“Cindy fascinates me,” says series writer Robbie Thompson, in an interview with Marvel.com. “She gave up 10 years of her life and the world moved on without her. What does that do to a person?”

Now, Cindy is back in New York City, patrolling it’s rooftops as SILK! And she’s going to make up for lost time. Searching for her past, defining her own future, and webbing wrong-doers along the way. Now is your chance to hop on board one of the slickest new launches of 2015 as SILK #1 swings in to comic shops this week!

Why Marvel Should Kill Spider-Man

Why Marvel Should Kill Spider-Man

Last week’s announcement of Sony and Marvel Studios finally coming together will go down in the history books for sure, and may even pave the way for other wayward franchises to find their way back home. Since his creation by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko in 1962, the wall crawler has been a major part of nearly every Marvel milestone to date. Even Marvel’s current movie success has ol’ Web-Head to thank with his 2001 blockbuster Spider-Man when it blew the door open for more comic book movies to come. So it would be crazy to turn our back on all of that and kill Peter Parker, right?

No, that makes now the perfect time to KILL PETER PARKER!
