Oi Oi Oi! Spider-Punk Gets His Own Series in April

Spider-Punk, the Earth-138 version of Hobie Brown who is also a punk rock version of Spider-Man, will star in his own eponymous five-issue mini-series this April from Cody Ziglar and Justin Mason. What could possibly be more punk than one of dozens of franchised variants of the most globally-recognized superhero owned by the Disney corporation? We can't personally think of anything… except maybe Valiant's newly announced Punk Mambo NFTs. Oi oi oi!

In an interview with Den of Geek's Gavin Jasper, Zigler explained how he got the go-ahead from Marvel to do a Spider-Punk mini-series:

"I wrote five issues of Amazing Spider-Man and had written two backups for Miles Morales: Spider-Man and I'm also writing the What If? Miles Morales they're doing," Ziglar says. He joked about regularly telling the Marvel editors, "'I want to write Spider-Man, but if it's a black Spider-Man? I'm the guy that you want to come to.'"

As he put it, the higher ups would tell him: "'Calm down. If it ever pops up again, we'll let you know.' One day they reached out to me. 'Hey, not only is it a black Spider-Man, but it's a black Spider-Man who's into punk stuff.' Great! Literally all my bases are covered! They saw how enthusiastic I was about the prospect and came to me for it."

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
