The next big Spider-Man event finally kicks off from Marvel Comics in The Amazing Spider-Man: Gang War – First Strike #1. Written by Zeb Wells with Cody Ziglar, and art by Joey Vazquez with Julian Shaw, you might think all the words were already taken by the title of the issue. But no!
In fact, in the preview pages below, there’s a lot more talking. First, the heads of New York’s crime family have to figure out who has been targeting them. Then, Peter Parker and Miles Morales have to hash out their relationship, given Peter ditched New York for six months, something that to be honest as a frequent Amazing Spider-Man reader I wasn’t aware had happened. Perhaps because Spider-Man is still in essentially every comic Marvel publishes?
Regardless, that’s what you’re getting in the pages below. And elsewhere in the week, Mayor Luke Cage also gets involved in the Gang War, so you can look forward to that, too.
