Back in August, I shared the gaming trailer for the brand-new “Spider-Man” game that was coming out for the PS4 console. If you didn’t see that trailer post just click HERE so you are up to speed. Now, that games version of Spider-Man is joining the ranks of the Marvel Comics Universe with a brand-new series of his own. Read on down below.
The Press Release:
The fan-favorite and critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man has taken the world by storm – and now the video game’s web-slinger is leaping into the pages of Marvel comics! Starting this March, all your favorite Spidey characters are presented in new and surprising scenarios as Peter Parker’s civilian and superhuman worlds collide in the game’s original, action-packed story!
After protecting his beloved New York City for eight years, Spidey finally has the opportunity to put Wilson Fisk behind bars for good. But removing the Kingpin from the mean streets of Manhattan has its own repercussions…as a new threat, the mysterious crime lord called Mister Negative, rises to fill the vacuum and threaten all that Peter holds dear, including the lives of not only his beloved Aunt May but also his former girlfriend, and current Daily Bugle investigative reporter, Mary Jane Watson.
“While creating the game, the writing team’s goal was to pay homage to Spider-Man’s rich history while also shaking things up to keep players on the edge of their seats,” said Marvel Games executive creative director Bill Rosemann. “Now we’re thrilled to see our game’s original story swing full circle and come to life in the pages of this all-new comic book series in the Mighty Marvel Manner!”
Including all-new story moments never before seen in the game as well as bonus behind the scenes content, MARVEL’S SPIDER-MAN: CITY OF WAR #1 is the first in a series of new stories from the growing Marvel Gamerverse as we press start on a brand-new Marvel Universe this March!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I haven’t managed to play the video game yet and that’s mostly based on my only having a PS3 system. Some friends have it and said its awesome so I cannot wait to try it. I am always interested in a brand new shiny first issue so I will be checking this out when it arrives on the racks. With it being a mini-series, maybe I will wait until its all collected before actually purchasing. This is more based on space than anything else. What do you fellow collectors think? Chime in down below in the comments section.
