The classic Saturday morning team of Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends are making their return to Marvel Comics in November in Iceman #3.
For the uninitiated, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends was an animated series that aired for three seasons in the early 1980s, teaming the wall-crawler with the X-Men's Iceman and the then-new character Firestar. Their first comic book appearance as a team -- and Firestar's debut -- came in the one-shot tie-in Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends #1.
Since then, Spider-Man and Iceman have largely gone back to business as usual. Meanwhile, Firestar has gone on to carve a legacy of her own, as a member of the X-Men and a founding member of the New Warriors. The solicitation text for Iceman #3, along with W. Scott Forbes' cover, can be found below:

This is sure to catch a lot of people's attention as the team from the old Saturday morning cartoon is likely very near and dear to a lot of fans' hearts, including Iceman's writer Sina Grace. “As a lifelong Spider-Man and X-Fan, I forced C.B. Cebulski to swear he wasn’t kidding when the opportunity to write a Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends team-up happened,” shared Grace. “Expect me to one-up Chip Zdarsky on quips and dynamic action!”
