Marvel to Retell Spider-Man's Life Story in 'Real Time'

Cosmic Ghost Rider may be poised to completely destroy Marvel history in March, but that isn't stopping Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley from putting a unique spin on Peter Parker's history in an all-new six-issue limited series, Spider-Man: Life Story.

“I guess I’m just not done with Spidey!" Zdarsky, who recently concluded a run on Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man, said in a statement. "This is an idea I’ve had since I first started working for Marvel, something that explores the characters and the Marvel universe on a deeper level, where time changes both the characters and the world. Being able to span decades with one of the most iconic Spider-Man artists ever, Mark Bagley, is surreal. He’s creating fresh takes on classic characters and moments in really dynamic ways.”

According to Marvel, the purpose of the miniseries is to ask, "what if Spider-Man had aged at the same rate as our world?" It's described as "a tale encompassing the entire history of Spider-Man from beginning to end, set against the key events of each decade! As the series kicks off in March, the year is 1966, and Peter Parker must determine where his power and responsibility truly lies as the nation becomes embroiled in the Vietnam War."
