Preview: Amazing Spider-Man #25 From Marvel


In a preview of the giant-sized Amazing Spider-Man #25, readers get their first look at the next major storyline “The Osborn Identity”.

You would think that after finishing up the recent Spider-Man event The Clone Conspiracy, writer Dan Slott would want to take a deep breath and relax for a bit. A lot happened in the storyline, not the least of which was the return of Ben Reilly and the seeding of multiple plot lines that could take years to come to fruition.

It’s been a very bust few months for your friendly neighborhood wall-crawler.

But no, taking a breather doesn’t seem to be part of the plan for the Amazing Spider-Man.

Launching in the giant-sized (and I do mean giant-sized) Amazing Spider-Man #25 is the next chapter of the Spider-Man saga, “The Osborn Identity”. The 40-page story will see the return of Norman Osborn, the original Green Goblin, to Peter Parker’s world and that is never, ever a good thing.

“The Osborn Identity” also sees the debut of Stuart Immonen as the new regular artist on Amazing Spider-Man working with Slott to take the title to the next level of greatness.

In addition to the start of “The Osborn Identity”, the 96-page Amazing Spider-Man #25 also includes backup stories by Slott and Giuseppe Camuncoli, Hannah Blumenreich, Cale Atkinson, Christos Gage and Todd Nauck, Jacob Chabot and Ray Anthony and James Asmus and Tana Ford.
