EXCLUSIVE: Marvel’s “Edge of Spider-Verse” Solicitations

by  in Comic News Comment

Marvel‘s upcoming “Spider-Verse” event is set to start in November 2014, but the publisher is first setting the table in September and October with the five-issue “Edge of Spider-Verse” miniseries. Each issue will be by a different creative team, and focus on a different alternate universe Spider-Man — including, in issue #2, a Spidey that’s Gwen Stacy, not Peter Parker.

CBR has the exclusive solicitations for all of “Edge of Spider-Verse,” with the first three issues slated to ship in September, and the final two in October.
