If you’re a fan of things that go thwip in the night, then you probably already played Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales. Now in honor of the upcoming sequel, Marvel will be rolling out a prequel comic on Free Comic Book Day!
While there’s still a couple days before you can go and pick up a free copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 prequel comic, here’s a synopsis of what the story will be about:
When the story opens, MJ and Peter are back from Symkaria, and MJ has just finished her first book, “Perilous: A Journey Into War-Torn Symkaria.” But unfortunately, sales aren’t going well, and she’s been forced to go on J. Jonah Jameson’s “Just The Facts” podcast to try and drum up support for her book. As their ideologies clash and the interview starts to go south, the Spider-Men literally crash the interview while fighting The Tarantula (a familiar face from Spider-Geddon #0). Miles and Peter wrap up the Tarantula, which also wraps up MJ’s disastrous interview.
On top of all that, there’s a new gang in town, and they appear to be using…magic? Our heroes work together to track down and confront members of this gang, using their super powers to uncover the gang’s leader: The Hood! This new Super Villain appears to have supernatural abilities that defy mere webs and fists. While Miles, Peter, and MJ attempt to balance their responsibilities to the city, and each other, they keep coming back to one of the main themes of this action-packed issue: is magic real?
Definitely sounds like a fun time for fans of Spidey. Be sure and head to your local comic vendor on May 6th to snag a copy!
