Superior Spider-Man Returns in December
Marvel has announced that they will be bringing back Otto Octavius as Superior Spider-Man this December.
The book will be written by Christos Gage with art by Mike Hawthorne and is described by Marvel as “Otto will get another chance to be the best Super Hero he can be!”
Writer Christos Gage adds:
The Superior Spider-Man is back! But this time he’s not trying to be a superior Peter Parker — he’s trying to be the best possible Otto Octavius,” Christos Gage said. “[This] includes protecting San Francisco, teaching at Horizon University in his cover identity as Elliot Tolliver, and, of course, doing everything much better than anyone else can — which is why he’s still the Superior Spider-Man! I had the great pleasure of collaborating with Dan Slott on his incredible Superior Spider-Man run, and I can’t wait for people to see this new chapter in Otto’s journey toward… redemption? Corruption? Triumph? Tragedy? That remains to be seen. What I can tell you is that the appropriately superior artistic team of Mike Hawthorne, Wade Von Grawbadger, and Jordie Bellaire — titans of their field, all — are absolutely killing it on the art.
Superior Spider-Man artist Mike Hawthorne adds:
I’m more than thrilled to renew my exclusive with the folks at Marvel. I want to emphasize ‘folks’ here, as I think we often talk about Marvel as this big entity that just makes things happen. Marvel, to me, is the people that work day in and day out to try to make the best comics they can. They’re the ones that keep me coming back. I’m ecstatic to dedicate the next few years of my creative energies to adding to the Marvel Universe!
Before that though and before the release this December, readers can also follow Doc Ock’s adventures as Elliot Tolliver in Superior Octopus which arrives October
