Official Press Release
Spider-Man is going to get a little help from his extended family in Spider-Man Family One-Shot. Writer Tom DeFalco and artist Ron Lim are teaming Spider-Man with a plethora of spider-characters including Araña, Spider-Girl, Peter Porker Spider-Ham, Spider-Man 2099, and the Scarlet Spider. Even the spectacular Spider-Mobile makes an appearance.
"If you've ever read an issue of Spider-Girl, you know that I like doing complete single issue stories and I loved the challenge of teaming up Spider-Man, Spider-Girl and Arana," says writer Tom DeFalco. "Just for fun, I also tossed in J. Jonah Jameson, Peter Porker and cameos of the Spider-Mobile, Spider-Man 2099, the Scarlet Spider and Bag Man-HOO-HA! It's merry Marvel madness as you like it!"
DeFalco was also excited about working again with penciler Ron Lim. "I love teaming-up with Ron Lim," says DeFalco. "There is a joyous vitality to his artwork that infects each page with a wonderful frenetic madness that reminds me why I love this medium."
One of the characters that DeFalco was excited about including was Araña. "While it's always a pleasure to play with Spider-Man, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Araña," says DeFalco. "Some fans think that there's a competition between Spider-Girl and Araña. There isn't. They're totally different characters and their stories are told in totally different ways-so you can enjoy both books for different reasons!"
Be sure to get this oversized one-shot featuring Spider-Man and his amazing spider-friends including an ALL-NEW 16 page story by DeFalco and Lim and reprints of Marvel Tails: Featuring Spider-Ham #1(1983), Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) #20 (1979), Spider-Man 2099 #1(1992), Untold Tales of Spider-Man #1, plus a tale of young Petey by Hembeck from Untold Tales of Spider-Man Annual #1.
