Chip Zdarsky Announces Spectacular Spider-Man Departure

Writer and artist Chip Zdarsky (Jughead, Howard the Duck) has left his mark on the history of the Webbed Wonder since he began working on Marvel's secondary Spider-Man title, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man, last year. During his tenure, Zdarsky helmed such events as J. Jonah Jameson discovering Spider-Man and Peter Parker are one and the same and the return of Peter's younger sister, Teresa, from the Spider-Man: Family Business graphic novel. As comics fans know, though, creators are bound to leave a series eventually, and Zdarsky is no exception.

In a Reddit AMA posted earlier today, Zdarsky confirmed that the title's upcoming Issue #310, which he will be both scripting and penciling, will be his last for the series, though the creator claims it was a hard decision to make.

"My biggest regret is that, talking with Nick Spencer, the stuff coming up in Amazing [Spider-Man] is so great that I wished I could stick around to play in the world he's making," said Zdarksy.

When asked what he would be working on next, Zdarsky said he couldn't give away any details, but let slide that his upcoming project is "pretty cool."
