Scarlet Spider #1 Preview
If it hadn’t been for Daniel Clifford and his rundown of The Clone Saga on North East Geek Feast I wouldn’t know what the hell this preview was all about. As it is I know who Caine is and I know who the Scarlet Spider is, I didn’t think they were the same person (or I know they are if you know what I mean) and it’s for that reason that I’m going to let Marvel do the talking on this preview, if this sort of thing does it for you, you could do a lot worse than Chris Yost writing your comic books, that’s all I’ll say:
Get ready for a new brand of web-slinging action in your first look at Scarlet Spider #1! From the red-hot creative team of Chris Yost & Ryan Stegman, Kaine – the all-new Scarlet Spider – finds himself on the run in Texas after saving New York City from becoming the world’s largest spider nest during Spider-Island. But when his escape is stopped by a super-powered crime syndicate, Kaine must put an end to their corruption the only way he knows how…violently.
“Scarlet Spider is a book that can deal with a character much like Peter Parker but at darker, more difficult place in his life,” said Stephen Wacker, Marvel Senior Editor. “The violent choices he’s made through years of struggle—the sins of youth, so to speak—have come at a brutal cost. He may hope that the things he’s done will be left to the dusty, yellowed pages of history, but someone ALWAYS remembers who you used to be.”
Redefining power & responsibility, no fan can miss the brutal debut of Scarlet Spider #1 hitting comic shops everywhere, this January.
