Entertainment Weekly reals The Amazing Spider-Man #789 kicks off the "Fall of Parker" storyline, in which Peter is back at the Daily Bugle in a "mysterious capacity" following the disappearance of Parker Industries, the tech company that eventually granted him billionaire status.
"This is a Peter Parker who’s had it all, lost it all, and now has to find his place in the world again," writer Dan Slott told the website. "It’s a return to the scrappy underdog status that’s the Peter Parker we all know and love. We’re going to see a return to form, with old friends coming back onto the stage, some in all-new ways. It’s all been leading to this — from Big Time, to Superior, through Spider-Verse, and the Parker Industries era. It’s been a crazy ride, but now that we’re here, we’re going to get a Peter/Spider-Man that’s closer to a core Spidey than we’ve had in years."
Slott emphasized that Peter will not be a photographer again, but rather will serve in a new capacity. "It’s a new twist," he said. "It’s something we haven’t seen in Amazing Spider-Man yet. After 55 years, that’s a pretty cool trick, right? And it’s a development I’ve been dying to get to for a long time."
Arriving in October, The Amazing Spider-Man #789 is illustrated by Stuart Immonen, with a cover by Alex Ross.
