Marvel Comics provides CBR with an exclusive look at Amazing Spider-Man #4, by Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.
Marvel Comics provided CBR with a first look at The Amazing Spider-Man #4, by writer Zeb Wells, artist John Romita Jr., inker Scott Hanna, colorist Marcio Menyz and letterer VC’s Joe Caramagna. In the preview, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat and Mary Jane Watson deepen their friendship.
The latest run on The Amazing Spider-Man opened with Peter Parker/Spider-Man in dire straits following the events of the “Beyond” storyline. Many of Peter’s most trusted allies and friends have essentially abandoned him, and he’s found himself saddled with a ton of medical debt. Additionally, Mary Jane is seemingly in a new relationship that involves children. As he’s been dealing with that, Spider-Man became involved in a war between Tombstone and the Rose, which resulted in the wall-crawler getting kidnaped by the former.
In CBR’s exclusive preview of Amazing Spider-Man #4, Mary Jane is with her new children when Black Cat shows up looking for Peter. The two bond a little in the process. From there, the book jumps to Peter, who is being held at gunpoint by Tombstone’s men. Peter, who is shackled, thinks about how he’ll have to dodge at exactly the right time to survive the coming shot. However, before the trigger gets pulled, Kareem shows up to stop the execution. At the end of the preview, it’s not totally clear what will happen to Spider-Man or how he’ll get out of the manacles holding him back.
