Answering the urgent need for more Spider-Man comics in an extremely sparse Spider-Man comic landscape, Marvel launches Amazing Spider-Man: Daily Bugle this week, by Mat Johnson and Mack Chater, and we've got a preview of it right here.
The preview begins with a look at how the Daily Bugle has changed over the years, from a skyline point of view.
But inside, we find Robbie Robertson, walking with a purpose.
The staff can tell Robbie means business, and he has a new mission for the paper, one to save it from the slow death of the digital age.
The Bugle is going to produce investigative journalism under the regime of Mayor Kingpin, in the style of papers like the New York Times or Washington Post under President Trump.
Except, presumably, with more pictures of Spider-Man.
Amazing Spider-Man: Daily Bugle #1 hits stores on Wednesday.

SPINNING OUT OF AMAZING SPIDER-MAN!
The journalist must speak truth to power-whether or not it's wielded responsibly. Helmed by Peter Parker's mentor, Robbie Robertson, the Daily Bugle staff is at last chasing stories that matter. And in a city under Mayor Wilson Fisk, keeping the public informed is as essential as it is dangerous. Weaving between events in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN and DAREDEVIL, Mat Johnson (Hellblazer Special: Papa Midnite, Incognegro, Loving Day) and Mack Chater (BLACK PANTHER AND THE CREW, Briggs Land) are following a lead into Kingpin and Spider-Man's past that will change the way you look at the webslinger now, and as his story continues.
