If the above question has been plaguing you (and I know it has me. Oh, the sleepless nights!) then your torture is almost over. Well if you’re a Spider-Man fan it is any way.
The surprisingly young looking web-slinger is about to celebrate his 50th anniversary with Marvel and he looks to be getting his very own sidekick. Things are set to change for Peter Parker as Amazing Spider-Man #692 hits shelves and digital comic book stores in August. Marvel are not massive on the Hero/Sidekick format, preferring instead for the lone gunman with the odd team up or a full on hero team, but creative team Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos are set to sidekick-up one of Marvel’s biggest and most loved titles. And on his 50th birthday no less!
Amazing Spider-Man looks to be an event in itself, the press release paints an exciting picture:
This special event could only be told in this over-sized issue celebrating the values that made Spider-Man the world’s greatest super hero for the past five decades and many more to come. And with special variant covers by superstar artist Marcos Martin, depicting Spider-Man through the years, no fan can miss out on this! Get ready for a story about power and responsibility like you’ve never seen before.
And as for Alpha, they do say pictures speak louder than words so:-
