Though I am still very new to the character of Silk, I like what I have read so far that included her and think she will make a fine addition to the Marvel Comics Universe of titles. Let’s check out the announcement about her brand-new series that will come out this July. Images and copy come from the House Of Ideas themselves.
The Press Release:
Demons and deadly conspiracies await Silk when writer Maurene Goo and artist Takeshi Miyazawa take the Spider-Verse standout to new heights this summer! Back in 2014, the world learned that Peter Parker wasn’t the only one who was bitten by the radioactive spider in Amazing Fantasy #15. Equipped with spider powers of her own, Cindy Moon took the Marvel Universe by storm as the beloved super hero Silk! Just announced at C2E2, Silk will weave a new web this July, filled with ruthless new villains including the cat demon Kasha as Cindy takes on a new investigative reporter gig under the one and only J. Jonah Jameson.
Acclaimed novelist Maurene Goo (I Believe in a Thing Called Love, Somewhere Only We Know) makes her grand foray into comic books alongside superstar artist Takeshi Miyazawa to deliver a thrilling series that will pack action, heart, and relevatory insights about the character. Cindy’s new mission will quickly turn as personal as it is deadly and prove Silk to be one of Marvel’s most dynamic and intriguing heroes.
“The opportunity to write a Korean American super hero—a woman, no less—is one that I never thought would come my way,” Goo said. “I’m so excited to flex this writing muscle and to explore new stories for Silk—a character I love. Her fierceness and loyalty are qualities I understand and relate to, and I hope readers feel the same as she fights new foes and protects old friends.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Despite my still being a bit of an ingenue with “Silk” as a character, I like the idea and the diversity that she will bring to the Spider-Man Universe. I am sure we shall see her in an upcoming Sony Spider-Verse release at some point in the future since Marvel Studios isn’t in control of that license but let’s remain hopeful. I will be asking my local comic book shop to add a crisp first issue to my weekly pull list and so should you. As I close this up I wonder what you think about Silk getting her own series. Chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
