The 50th anniversary spider-man issue hits shelves in August, and this oversized book comes with a new surprise character. It appears after all these years of being stretched out across the Marvel universe Spidey may be getting a sidekick. Nuts, right?
So if you were wondering “Who is Alpha?” there you go, he’s like Spider-Man’s Robin. If you feel like I just spoiled it for you, please forgive me, but seriously it’s not much of a secret, it’s literally plastered all over the web.
Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos make up the creative team behind this blockbuster event with Marcos Martin adding in a variant cover to the mix just for kicks.
Every once in awhile Spider-Man’s world needs to be shook up. In the past theses shake ups haven’t really been my cup of tea, but it will be interesting to see where this one goes.
If you’re interested too here’s a sweet little preview to whet your appetite. Enjoy.
