Marvel Comics has teased the beginning of a new era of storytelling in Amazing Spider-Man starting this October, but is the Green Goblin truly about to make his long-feared return? Read on for details…
Zeb Wells’ Amazing Spider-Man run has divided fans, primarily for its villainous take on Ben Reilly as Chasm and the fact Mary Jane Watson has found a new love interest in a guy named Paul.
For those who have spent years waiting to see Peter Parker rekindle his romance with Black Cat, however, there’s been plenty to love about the series (and it’s not as if Wells was the one who decided Ms. Marvel should die in the pages of Marvel Comics’ most popular title in order to later resurrect her as a mutant).
Love it or hate it, more twists and turns are on the way this October, something that’s evident from the solicitations for Amazing Spider-Man #35 and #36.
The reformed Norman Osborn was recently injected with the Goblin Serum by Doctor Octopus and it appears the Green Goblin might be about to rear his ugly head…but will it be Peter who dons the suit this time?
John Romita Jr.’s cover below certainly suggests that might be the case, though it’s possible Norman could make use of the tech he’s created for Peter. It’s said that issue #35 “sets up the next 24 issues of Amazing Spider-Man,” while the synopsis also warns readers, “Do. Not. Miss. This.”
Patrick Gleason will be on art duties, while Ed McGuinness steps in for the following chapter. In that, “Spider-Man has never gone this dark. Now the consequences are unravelled. Will New York ever look at him the same way again?”
Intriguing stuff, eh?
For anyone not enjoying this run, we’re not sure what Wells has planned next will change any minds. However, for those that have been hooked from the start (and we’d highly recommend checking it out), this could be a perfect jumping-on-point.
Take a look at this new Amazing Spider-Man cover art by McGuinness and John Romita Jr. below.
