New Symbiote Spider-Man comic announced


Marvel Comics has announced a new Spider-Man comics called Symbiote Spider-Man. Here’s everything we know.

Marvel Comics has announced a new Spider-Man comic, which will focus on him wearing the black suit called Symbiote Spider-Man. Thanks to a report from CBR, we have some information on the comic book. Up ahead are spoilers for the upcoming comic, so read at your own risk!

Spider-Man will return in the black costume in April. Symbiote Spider-Man will feature Peter Parker/Spider-Man wearing the black suit, but this story isn’t going to set in the present. Instead, it will take place during “The Alien Costume Saga,” which ran from May 1984 to April 1985.

For those who don’t know, “The Alien Costume Saga” is a comic book story thread in which Spider-Man got the black costume (now known as the living symbiote, Venom) and started using it when he returned from the Secret Wars. He loved this costume, until he got to know that when he slept, the suit used his body to brutally fight crime. As a result, he came to know that it was a living symbiote. Spider-Man then got the symbiote removed, and eventually, Venom was created using new host Eddie Brock’s hatred for Peter Parker.

The story is written by Peter David, while the art and cover is done by Greg Land. According to editor Devin Lewis, the story is an in-continuity story of Peter Parker/ Spider-Man during the time he wore the black suit that later became his greatest foe, and the story will also bring back the characters from “The Alien Costume Saga,” like Black Cat, Aunt May, and The Daily Bugle.

"“What’s Mysterio doing on the cover?!. He never fought Symbiote Spidey! Or did he?! Now, I know a lot of y’all out there in Mighty Marveldom are going to scoff at that — that this story is in-continuity — but trust me! Peter, Greg and I have all done our homework — we’ve read and reread the original Alien Costume Saga in its entirety, revisited old stories and talked around those classics literally, for hours. This is Peter Parker as Spider-Man, wearing one of the most iconic costumes in all of comics, and we’re treating this story will the heart, seriousness and respect that that entails as a result.”"
