Return to this fascinating real time world in August with SPIDER-MAN LIFE STORY ANNUAL #1
New York, NY— April 2, 2021 — A fascinating retelling of the Spider-Man mythos set in real time, 2019’s SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY was a smash hit with fans and critics. This August, writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Mark Bagley will return with a new tale set in this amazing saga in SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY ANNUAL #1!
Just like the original series, this special issue will offer a thought-provoking retrospective of the entire history of Spider-Man as if he had aged in real time since his 1962 debut, reframing Spider-Man’s greatest adventures, his tragic romance with Gwen Stacy, and his most iconic villains against the backdrop of key moments from each decade. And now, readers will see Spider-Man’s groundbreaking history told from a different point of view…
“Working on the original SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY was a dream come true for me,” Zdarsky said. “But the problem with the miniseries was that I didn’t have the room to properly tell the life story of one of my all-time favorite characters: J. Jonah Jameson! Getting the chance to revisit this universe with Mark again has been an absolute blast!”
J. Jonah Jameson will do whatever it takes to make the world see that Spider-Man is nothing but a threat and a menace. Will the decades of his obsession bear fruit for Jonah … or be his destruction? Find out in SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY ANNUAL #1 when it hits stands on August 4th! And stay tuned for information on the all-new SPIDER-MAN: LIFE STORY HARDCOVER collecting the entire series plus this exciting new entry, coming later this year.
