JMS Reveals More Details About WTC 'Amazing Spider-Man' Story

Writer J. Michael Straczynski has revealed a few more details about the forthcoming issue of Marvel Comics's "Amazing Spider-Man" dealing with the September 11 attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.

As reported Monday by CBR news, Straczynski was asked by Marvel to write an issue of Marvel's flagship title responding to the attack that has left thousands in New York City's financial district dead.

Monday night, Straczynski gave a few more details as to what comic readers can expect.

It will be issue 36," he posted to the rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5.moderated Usenet group. "The whole thing is one lengthy meditation on the tragedy.

"35 has been ready for some time, I think it just got caught up in the whole WTC situation.

"As for the comics in general I'm doing, there was a hiccup of some time on the Joe's Comics line due to the massive amount of work involved in launching 'Jeremiah.' Some days I'm literally on the set and in the office for 24 hours in a row. Once the series is up and running, and we're into a natural flow of things, this will change. I was only about four days late in delivering the script for ASM 35 even with all that, so I think keeping it going on schedule won't be that much of a problem."

(And finally, a special thanks to Scott Tilson.)
