It looks like Marvel will continue the Spider-Verse event into Warzone! this May. The Spider characters from all over the many universes and realities will bring the battle to Morlun in Spider-Verse #1. We get to see a team comprised of Spider-man Noir, Spider-Girl, Spider-Ham as well as Spider-Gwen (couldn’t they have been more creative with the Spider-Man UK and Spider-Man India?) in a spider free for all.
Senior Editor Nick Lowe had this to say about the event:
“The SPIDER-VERSE event in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN brought you the first team of Spider-Men,but not the last! Here we build and expand upon the Spider-Verse story in insane new ways!”
Let’s see what happens, eh faithful readers? Make yours Marvel, if you want.

The incredibly popular comic has gone into its 3rd printing, according to a press release from Marvel. The comic starring Gwen Stacy ties into the far-reaching story arc ‘Spider-verse’ and showcases the talents of Jason Latour, Robbi Rodriguez and Rico Renzi.
I’m stunned myself that Marvel mined Gwen Stacy to use, considering the impact that her original death had on comics, the Marvel universe and yours truly. It moved comics, or at least Marvel, from perpetually dealing not dealing with real life issues. Marvel of course had some serious storylines before this, but the Gwen Stacy death made Spidey seem more human. Made him feel like us. It made me grow up a little faster. Anyway. I know that I’m still reeling from the Superior Spider-Man series and trying to catch up with the new story arc.
What do you think of Marvel bringing back Gwen Stacy? Is anything sacred in the Marvel Universe anymore?
