If there’s one thing the Amazing Spider-Man movies (and Emma Stone) have done, it’s re-introducing Gwen Stacy to a whole new generation of Spider-Man fans. Now while I personally feel that Gwen Stacy should remain 6-feet under, there’s no denying that she’s Marvel’s newest sensation.
Spinning directly out of the pages of the Amazing Spider-Man’s SPIDER-VERSE and the red-hot, sold-out Edge of Spider-Verse #2, SPIDER-GWEN #1 is a new ongoing series that already has the whole comic industry buzzing! Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi all return to chronicle the adventures of the breakout character of 2014!
She’s Gwen Stacy. She’s smart, tough, and charming. She drums in a punk rock band and goes to high school. Only she can lift a car and has spider powers! Just don’t tell her father, NYPD Police Chief George Stacy! But of course we knew all that already! However, this picks up after the events of Spider-Verse and Gwen is back home and Marvel’s got something surprising planned for her.
“It’s a rare character that gets the public outcry that Spider-Gwen got,” says Senior Editor Nick Lowe. “From the sell-out of Gwen’s first appearance to the groundswell on Twitter we’re excited to bring more Spider-Gwen into the world with the creators who started it all!”
