Publisher DescriptionGang War, the next Marvel Comics crossover epic, kicks off this November!  Spinning out of Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.’s hit run of Amazing Spider-Man, Gang War will see a war declared between the gang lords of New York City, causing chaos throughout the Big Apple.  As villains fight villains and crime envelops the city, Peter Parker will launches his own war!  It’s General Spidey at the helm, leading a group of heroes that includes fellow Spider-Man Miles Morales, She-Hulk, Daredevil, and Spider-Woman.  Their goal: take down the super-gangs in under 48 hours.  But what does Mayor Luke Cage and the city's strong anti-vigilante laws have to say about it?  Will Mary Jane, AKA Jackpot, gamble on getting involved?  And is Shang-Chi a friend or foe?

Starting in November, prepare for the war with special prelude issues under the banner of Gang War: First Strike.  Then, the event officially begins in December’s Amazing Spider-Man #39 before tying into some of your favorite series and launching all-new titles!
