Comic Quick Pick – Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-Man #1

From time to time, I will give you an advanced early warning on a comic book that is being released so that you can pick it up before it sells out.

The third entry for the Comic Quick Pick is…..

Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider- Man #1. 

Writer: Chip Zdarsky 

Artist: Adam Kubert 

Cover Price : $4.99

SPIDER-MAN RETURNS TO THE FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD! The webslinging, wallcrawling wonder returns to New York City in the all-new PETER PARKER: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN. A companion series to the best-selling Amazing Spider-Man series, Peter Parker is going back-to-basics for big heroics in the Big Apple. Featuring adversaries old and new, be there as Spider-Man returns to his friendly neighborhood for his never ending battle against crime and the dreaded “Parker Luck”.

Chip Zdarsky has been killing it on Image Comics’ Sex Criminals, not to mention such Marvel Comics favorites as Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Howard the Duck, and Star-Lord.

Adam Kubert is a legend in the world of art; some of my favorite characters he has drawn….Wolverine, The Incredible Hulk, and the X-men. 

*****Please Note ***** Secret Empire Free Comic Book Day 2017 had a sneak preview of the new Spider-man series by Zdarsky with special guest artist Paulo Siqueira.


A quick primer if you did not pick the FCBD issue up: Spider-man fights an upgraded and enhanced Vulture, now going by the Falcon.



The fight is interrupted when the Trapster, a young female super-villain (using the old villain’s moniker and powers), stops them dead in their tracks.


The Trapster leaves Spidey and The Vulture stuck together and gets away with the money the Vulture had stolen.

Now you know…the rest of the story!

The Bottom Line —–

Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider -man #1 is a perfect jumping on point for new readers and for those that might have given up reading Dan Slott’s Amazing Spider-man series.

This is also a nice prelude to the movie Spider-man : Homecoming being released in July.

Peter Parker the Spectacular Spider-man #1 will be released Wednesday, June 21, 2017.
