SPIDER-MAN: SPIDER'S SHADOW Series Will Explore The Idea Of, "What If Spider-Man Became Venom?"

Spider-Man's relationship with the Venom symbiote still fascinates fans, but Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow promises to finally explore what might have happened had Peter Parker eventually become Venom...

Marvel Comics has made another big announcement about what's heading our way this April, and Spider-Man: Spider's Shadow from writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Pasqual Ferry (with colorist Matt Hollingsworth) is being billed as one of the most ruthless Spider-Man stories Marvel Comics has ever told.

Here's a synopsis for the series:

Peter Parker once put on an alien suit that nearly destroyed his life – but what if he’d never taken it off? Ignoring every warning, Spidey embraces the dark symbiote! Haunted by terrible nightmares and exhausted by an endless barrage of bad guys, Peter can’t seem to catch a break these days. So when the Hobgoblin attacks, he finds a hero at the end of his rope…and vulnerable to new dark impulses. Spider-Man is about to change his rules – but is it truly Peter who is in charge?

Zdarsky, no stranger to the wall-crawler's world, compares Spider's Shadow to a classic What If? story, as Spider-Man breaks bad while under the influence of his sinister alien costume. 

"I feel that with Spider's Shadow we’re exploring some dark situations with Spidey and the Marvel Universe, while making it cool and fun to read. I think longtime fans will love it and new readers will be amazed at what Marvel lets us do," Zdarsky teased. "Pasqual and Matt are producing amazing work on this book. When every page comes in, I share them with all of my friends even though Marvel says I’m not allowed to do that."

Ferry, meanwhile, says that drawing Spider-Man is a dream come true for him. "I always wanted to experiment with the black suit from Secret Wars so the icing on the cake was doing that in the form of a “What If” series set at the beginning of that journey," he explains.

"Chip's script is really shocking and surprising, a delight for someone fan of the character like me, and I'm sure it will catch the readers as much as it is drawing it with me. Hold on to the seats, because Spider's Shadow is going to surprise you in a way that you cannot imagine!"
