Avenging Spider-Man! New ongoing Marvel comic series starting in November

HUGE news for Joe Madureira Fans! Starting this November the series features art by Joe Mad and is written by Zeb Wells.

Zeb Says
“With Dan Slott nailing all the Peter Parker soap opera stuff in Amazing Spider-Man, we wanted to a book about Spider-Man as a super hero, out there in the Marvel Universe with the Avengers. This is the big super action movie of Spider-Man every month, with Joe Mad on art.”
Joe says
“I was a freaking nerd in high school, so I can relate to Spider-Man. I loved Spider-Man because he was funny. Over the years, depending on the writer, sometimes he’s funny, sometimes he’s not. Zeb is very very funny. I hope I can pull it off, but we’re going to have some good comedy in there with serious big action.”
Marvel states
“the first arc will see Spider-Man and the Red Hulk headed deep underground to deal with the Mole Man and encountering a brand new threat… Avenging Spider-Man is Marvel Team-Up but where the stories have a major impact on Spider-Man and the Avengers.”
