Time again for another Marvel Comics teaser for the third round of Marvel NOW! The newest one-word teaser, courtesy USA Today, sports four different creators: “Amazing Spider-Man” writer Dan Slott and artists Ryan Stegman, Humberto Ramos and Giuseppe Camuncoli. The word for the day is “Superior,” colored in red and blue.
While many Marvel NOW! teasers have been somewhat difficult to figure out, it seems likely this will be a Spider-Man-centric title. Slott, Ramos and Camuncoli have all worked on “Amazing Spider-Man” and Stegman was the starting artist on “Spider-Island” spinoff “Scarlet Spider.” Plus, the blue and red coloring of the word “Superior” matches Spidey’s costume — and it would definitely make sense for Marvel to kick off a new flagship Spider-Man book following the end of “Amazing Spider-Man” with issue #700 in December. Judging from the teaser, it’s entirely possible readers will be getting a “Superior Spider-Man” to kick off 2013.
This is the third Marvel NOW! teaser released this week, following a “Savage” book by Frank Cho and the “Amateur” antics of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie all set for January 2013.
