Publisher Description.  It’s the era of Spider-Boy!  After scoring multiple sold-out printings of his key appearances and gripping the imaginations of fans with his mysterious backstory, Spider-Man’s long-lost sidekick has landed his very own solo series.  Launching in November, Spider-Boy #1 will see co-creator Dan Slott and artist Paco Medina begin to unravel the startling origin behind Bailey Briggs, the young hero that the Marvel Universe forgot!

Leaping from the pages of Dan Slott and Mark Bagley’s blockbuster run of Spider-Man, it’s time for readers to experience the thrill of a Spider-Boy adventure!  In addition to digging into Spider-Boy’s top-secret past and exploring the reason why no one in the world remembers him, the new series will unleash the insanity of Spider-Boy’s personal rogues gallery.  In the new preview pages, fans can see a classic Spidey team up against new foe Gutterball as well as a faceoff against an animalistic henchman of Madame Monstrosity, the mad scientist behind Bailey’s transformation into Spider-Boy!  This new villain claims to have played a role in the origins of a host of iconic Marvel baddies, and Bailey may regret digging into the dark truths behind his creation…
