Marvel Announces AVENGING SPIDER-MAN by Zeb Wells and Joe Madureira

13 06 2011

Look at that beautiful artwork. I almost passed out due to its sheer beauty. Art by Joe Madureira.

 
Yes, you DID read that correctly… THE one and ONLY JOE MADUREIRA will be doing the art for an upcoming Spider-Man montly comic book debuting in November.
 
Zeb Wells will be responsible for the writing chores. Remember, he’s the guy behind that God awful Lizard story that came out last year where the Lizard fricken ATE HIS OWN SON. So, Zeb Wells has written some of the WORST Spider-Man stories that I’ve ever read, and… JUST LOOK at that art! IT’S SO GORGEOUS!!!
 
So I guess the premise of this comic is going to be stories of Spider-Man teaming up with the Avengers because apparently we don’t get enough of it in Avengers and New Avengers. Why can’t we call it Marvel Team-Up?
 
For those who know me well will know that I’m a HUGE fan of Joe Mad’s art. Anything he draws I feel the need to buy just to ABSORB THE AMAZING ART. I’ve even met him at a convention once. (btw Battle Chasers isn’t in his near future unfortunately).
 
I WILL buy the first issue, price point and not very good writer be darned. If it’s as bad as that Lizard story and each issue is priced at $3.99 for 22 pages of art I WILL drop it even if the art is probably going to be great. Marvel Comics has said that this will be a MONTHLY comic. Now for those who may not know, Joe Mad is a REALLY SLOOOOOOW artist and his books are always late. Unless, he’s gotten a HUGE HEAD START on this project by now or is going to be CHAINED TO A DESK, DRAWING 24/7 I can’t see HOW this is going to be a monthly comic, but we’ll see.
 
So YES I will buy the first issue and will probably REVIEW it here as well!
 
Let me know what you guys think of this in the comments section and take care!
