With Great Power Comes Great…. Resurrection

With Great
Responsibility Comes Great…Resurrection
As previously reported on Comic Related, Dan Slott is
bringing Peter Parker, The Amazing Spider-Man back to life this April. Marvel
confirmed the story that was originally reported exclusively yesterday in the
New York Daily News today in a press release.

New York, NY (January
13th, 2014) – Marvel Entertainment
is excited to announce the triumphant
return of Peter Parker as everyone’s
friendly neighborhood Spider-Man
this April in an all-new AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1. In 2012, the
comic book world was shocked to find that Doctor
Otto Octavius
, aka Doctor Octopus,
had switched bodies with Peter Parker and, in the process, left Peter Parker to
die in Octavius’ cancer-ridden shell. Since then, Octavius has been fighting
crime by his own dark methods in the pages of The Superior Spider-Man.
Teased throughout the entire run of The Superior Spider-Man,
written by Dan Slott (The
Mighty Avengers, She-Hulk),
Peter’s presence never quite left his body
and is now set to regain control and show the world who Spider-Man is – and no one could be more excited than Dan Slott

“I’ve been a Spider-Man fan since I was eight years old. Of
COURSE I want to see Peter back! He is the one, true Spider-Man.”  

–Dan Slott
With Peter Parker
swinging back into action in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN  #1, Slott, including fan-favorite
artist Humberto Ramos (The
Spectacular Spider-Man, Pete Parker: Spider-Man),
are returning readers
to intense and highly kinetic web-slinging action.

“The entire creative team is incredibly excited to bring
readers the next stage in Spider-Man’s life. And I can promise you that the
plans for AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, over the next year, will be the biggest
Spidey epic yet!”

– Stephen Wacker Senior Editor
However, the question on everyone’s mind has not been the “when”,
but the “how” Peter Parker returns from the dead and Slott is quick to tease
just that.

“In a strange and terrifying way. And… possibly… at a
very great cost. Remember, nothing is ever easy for Peter Parker. It’s one of
the reasons he’s a true hero.”  

–Dan Slott
