Director J.J. Abrams and his son Henry Abrams are teaming up to co-write ‘Spider-Man’ — a five issue limited series from Marvel — that will show a whole new side to Peter Parker.
The art on the book will be done by Sara Pichelli with the first issue hitting stores in September.
“Spider-Man is one of those super heroes where the more you read about him, for me at least, the less I understand him,” Henry Abrams said about the book he’s co-writing with his father. “He’s so anti-everything that you’d expect from a hero. I think Stan Lee said something about putting the human in superhuman. That is what we’re trying to do.”

The Abrams father-son duo will also introduce a new Spider-Man villain into the canon named Cadaverous but the mystery surrounding this character won’t be revealed until the book comes out later this year.
Of course, Abrams is also deep into post production on ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’, which will be the third and final film in the ongoing ‘Star Wars’ trilogy that opens up in December.
Take a look at the full cover for the first issue below before ‘Spider-Man’ No. 1 lands in comic book stores this September.
