Ghost-Spider, a.k.a. Gwen Stacy, is moving permanently into the main Marvel universe, Earth-616, in a new ongoing series by writer Stephanie Phillips and artist Chris Campana that will launch in April 2024.  Stacy originated in the Earth-65 universe, where she rather than Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider and gained super powers, but she has been moving back and forth between worlds in recent series.  The new series starts with her trapped in the 616, where she must come to terms with the fact that the original 616 Gwen Stacy died years before.  Spider-Gwen: The Ghost Spider #1 will go on sale on April 10, 2024 from Marvel Comics, with a cover by Mark Brooks.

"Right after I started working on this new Spider-Gwen ongoing, I saw a little girl on Halloween dressed as Gwen and hitting some cool spidey poses,” Phillips said in a statement accompanying the announcement.  “It was kind of a surreal moment to realize that I get to be a part of Gwen's next big chapter, bringing her into the 616 and giving readers stories that make us rethink who Gwen is and what her role is within this new universe.

Stacy got a boost in popularity from the animated film Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, in which she travels through the multiverse with Miles Morales (see “Massive Opening for ‘Across the Spider-Verse’”).
