Spider-Man: Fear Itself
Now soliciting: SPIDER-MAN: FEAR ITSELF, a one-shot special by me and Joe Suitor.
In this story, Peter Parker must face his greatest fear -- which, not incidentally, brings him into conflict with the Man-Thing, Marvel's resident swamp monster. And whatever knows fear experiences rapid, inexplicable combustion upon contact with the Man-Thing's leafy appendages.
You can see the gorgeous cover above by Mico Suayan. But Suitor, the interior artist/colorist, is the real star of this one. He's got a wonderfully stylized, fully realized take on all the characters -- including Spider-Man:
Even little Peter Parker!
SPIDER-MAN: FEAR ITSELF is on sale January 7th, 2009. I'll have a short preview to show at my signing, tomorrow night at Jim Hanley's Universe -- details here.
