J.J. Abrams Is Writing a SPIDER-MAN Comic Book with His Son
Looks like J.J. Abrams is mixing things up and trying something new. He is set to co-write a new Spider-Man comic book for Marvel with his son Henry. They are teaming up with Ultimate Spider-Man artist and Miles Morales co-creator Sara Pichelli on this project. Dave Stewart will do the colors with covers from Olivier Coipel.
The comic will be a five-part series, and the story will introduce a new villain to the Marvel universe named Cadaverous, who “will cause problems for Spider-Man, his alter-ego, Peter Parker, and his beloved Mary Jane Watson.”
There are no details on what the story will tell, but Abrams promises that the series will show Peter Parker “in a way you haven’t seen him before.” Abrams also said that this has been in the works for awhile:
“Nick [Lowe, Marvel Comics editor] had been pressing me to do a book with him. A year or so ago, I started talking about it with Henry and it sort of happened organically. And that has been the joy of this. Even though I’ve been talking to Nick for a long time, weirdly, this feels like it just sort of evolved from the conversations of Henry and I, having ideas that got us excited and Nick being open to the collaboration.”
I’m a fan of Abrams and the entertainment that he has created and brought us over the years. It’ll be cool to see what he and his son end up delivering with this Spider-Man comic. I hope it’s good! Who knows, maybe one day Abrams will actually ending directing a film adaptation of it one day!
