In an exclusive ComicBook.com story that Bleeding Cool first ran a couple of weeks ago, whch then led to questions about it being answered on the Sunday after, Marvel have announced Spidey!, a new ongoing Spider-Man series that's specifically All-Ages, telling stories of Spider-Man when Peter Parker was still in high school.

Charting the four-colored time machine through is writer Robbie Thompson (Silk) and artist Nick Bradshaw (Wolverine and the X-Men). Together, the creative team will swing headfirst into Stan Lee and Steve Ditko's famed era of Spider-Man stories, while honoring other Spider-Man heavyweights like Todd McFarlane, Dan Slott, Gerry Conway, and more. But one constant that readers can count on in this in-continuity series, however, are iconic villains, the old Parker Luck, and brand-new legends of its own. And harkening even closer to the silver age of Marvel storytelling, each issue of Spidey will carry a one-and-done format, giving new, lapsed, or veteran readers clean and accessible Spider-Man stories unburdened by continuity.

By the way, Marvel UK tried something similar in the eighties. It didn't go down to well…
