First Look: Venom, Spider-Woman Share The Spotlight In Spider-Island #1


There are a lot of crazy “What if?” scenarios involving famous Marvel events and storylines of the past floating around on the Secret Wars Battleworld, but Spider-Island has to be one of the craziest. Just like the regular story, everyone in Manhattan received the proportional strength and speed of a spider, just like your Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Only this time, no one stopped the Spider-Queen, and chaos reigns.

Into this unique environment, writer Christos Gage and artist Paco Diaz are sending the symbiote-powered hero, Agent Venom. Can Flash Thompson succeed where others have already failed?

Not be outdone, the creators of the MC2 Spider-Woman, Mayday Parker, reunite to tell the issue’s second story. Tom DeFalco, Ron Fenz and Sal Buscema put May up against perhaps her biggest challenge to date, pitting her against the unknown horrors of Battleworld.

It all adds up to one intriguing passage that spider-fans are seriously going to want to add to their pull lists. Spider-Island #1 arrives in stores and on digital on July 8, all gussied up with a cover by Humberto Ramos. To tide you over until then, we’ve got a first look at five pages below, along with a variant cover by Frenz. Oh, and if you’re living in Manhattan, you might want to make sure it’s not the one where everyone can do what Peter Parker does. You know, just in case.
