Hey there readers there’s a new Spider-Man in town, and well, while you might already know him, he is in a brand new place and a part of a bigger universe. Check out the press release that I recently received about the upcoming mini-series “Spider-Men II”.
The Press Release:
THIS IS IT, TRUE BELIEVERS! The moment five years in the making is finally here! The first time Peter Parker and Miles Morales met ended with a question — WHO IS THE MILES MORALES OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE?! Now that the Miles you know and love is with Peter in the Marvel Universe, you’re finally going to get that answer to who the OTHER Miles Morales is! And that’s just the tip of the iceberg as Brian Michael Bendis (Defenders, Spider-Man) and Sara Pichelli (Spider-Man) bring you the next heart-stopping adventure for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales with Marvel Comics’ SPIDER-MEN II!
Speaking with Marvel.com, Bendis spoke towards Peter and Miles both holding onto the Spider-Man title in the Marvel Universe, “One of my favorite things about a shared universe, is that on top of what you’re writing for the characters, other things are happening to the characters, like now Miles is in the new universe, and now he’s a part of the Champions, and half of [Civil War II] was people fighting over his head, so things have changed in his life, and his relationship to the Marvel Universe is completely different than it was in the first series and that’s exciting.”
Get ready for SPIDER-MEN II swinging into stores this July from Brian Michael Bendis, Sara Pichelli and Justin Ponsor and prepare for this sense-shattering tale by reading the first issue of SPIDER-MEN now for through the Marvel Comics app

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Years ago if you told me you were putting second Spider-Man into the same universe of characters I would have balked, but I rather like Miles Morales and think that he might expand the current goings on into some exciting new territory. What do you readers think? Will you be purchasing the first issue and reading it through to issue five? Generally speaking, I grab the first issues off the racks but with most mini-series I tend to wait until the whole thing is in a collected edition. Okay that’s all I have for now. Take a look at the variant covers below along with a few permitted pages of artwork from the first issue.
