New Team Of Writers Take Spider-Man Beyond Your Wildest Expectations In Amazing Spider-Man 75

New Team Of Writers Take Spider-Man Beyond Your Wildest Expectations In Amazing Spider-Man 75

Jay Cochran - June 24, 2021
A bold new age of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is on the horizon! Starting in October, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN will return with a story so bombastic that it will take greatest team of web-writers and arachnid-artists ever assembled to tell it. Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar, Patrick Gleason, and Zeb Wells will team up on the thrice-monthly title to shake up the Spider-Man mythos in ways no one will see coming… The saga will kick off in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #75 where Ben Reilly will return to take back the mantle of Spider-Man. Backed by the Beyond Corporation, the captivating clone of Peter Parker is determined to be the best version of Spider-Man there ever was. And as yesterday’s teasers showed, this could have fatal consequences for Peter Parker…

Here’s what Editor Nick Lowe had to say about this daring new era of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN:

“The whole point of working on Spider-Man is trying to put new unliftable weights on top of him—physical, metaphysical, emotional, psychological—and seeing if he can lift them. But what if that weight truly is too heavy? What if someone with the exact same skills and formative years could do better? Ben Reilly is back and, with Aunt May and Uncle Ben’s lessons in the back of HIS mind as well, he’s here to step in where Peter Parker failed. Can he accomplish things the original Spider-Man never could? These questions are what sold me on this story.

“When Zeb Wells started building this story it became apparent that it needed a narrative velocity and a team of the best of the best to make it happen. So we gathered some of the greatest writers and artists in comics to join us and the story got even better and bigger and more surprising.

“Zeb has proven through Amazing Spider-Man “Shed”, Spider-Man/Doc Ock: Year One, and Hellions that he will bring the balance of hilarity and emotional devastation. Kelly Thompson’s work on Captain Marvel and Black Widow shows her to be the best mind for character work along with a fearless creativity that will keep you guessing. Saladin Ahmed is the rare writer who walks the tightrope of a book like his Eisner-Winning Black Bolt to his smash hit “Clone Saga” arc of Miles Morales: Spider-Man and his contributions shook us all. Fans from his time at the Distinguished Competition know Patrick Gleason isn’t only an artistic visionary (as proven recently from his Webhead covers) but also a highly-skilled writer whose Marvel debut is going to be the shot heard round the comics world. Cody Ziglar is a new name in comics, but the work he did for the upcoming Disney+ She-Hulk show and Rick and Morty showed us at Marvel that he is part of the next generation of Marvel superstar writers and he has not disappointed here.”

Fans will be able to get their first glimpse at what’s to come on August 14th in FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2021: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM. Check out artwork below and stay tuned for an upcoming announcement revealing which incredible artists will be joining this talented group of writers in what promises to be one of the most unpredictable runs in Spider-Man history!

It's amazing how the games do a better job of moving Spider-Man's narrative forward without compromising what made the character loveable than the comics have done in the last 30+ years (god that made me feel old). Clone Sagas, The Other,One More Day, Superior Spider-Man, Spider Island (blaargh), it's not a hard story to tell, he fights bad guys, makes quips, takes photos, and goes home to MJ...

Time to reinvent the wheel again and again

More and more reasons why I dropped Spider-Man so very long ago. I wish them luck, though. But clone Spidey or body swapped Spidey or whatever else they scrape up, is just not my cup of tea.

Great to see Ben back as Spidey and back to being a hero after Slott derailed him.

That off center logo bugs me...

Ben Reilly is back? Did he leave after the last time he came back?

How many times does that make now? What is this guy, the Stones?

That's a wrinkle. I thought the formula was going to be "something happens to Peter -> Ben becomes Spider-Man" but now it's going to be "Ben becomes Spider-Man-> something happens to Peter?"

I also think it's interesting they're not relaunching the title. Makes me feel like this change won't be quite a status quo but just for a storyline. Still, fun to see Ben being used again after being stranded in comic book limbo to the point Cantwell used him for his wacky ragtag team of heroes in Iron Man.

This sounds like Superior 2, and after we just got done getting Spider-Man back on track. Modern Ben Reilly sucks.

Now this is a Spider-Man variation that I would like to see Hasbro make for Marvel Legends.

Ben's back as Spider-man! I grew up reading Ben's Spidey and enjoyed it. Though so far I'm guessing this will be an alternate reality.
