And yet another tie-in to this summer’s Spider-Island event stands revealed! This time, it’s Spider-Island: Deadly foes. Named in homage Deadly Foes of Spider-Man, an often overlooked limited series from the early ‘90s, this one promises to focus on Spider-Man’s rogues. With a particular emphasis on The Jackal and Hobgoblin (who are shaping up to be the principle villains of Spider-Island), Deadly Foes can be expected to add a degree of depth to Spider-Island as a whole, as Steve Wacker promises that the featured stories will “violently expand” the plot of the event. Regular Spider-Man writer Dan Slott will be joined on this issue by frequent collaborators Fred Van Lente and Christos Gage, as well as artists Giuseppe Camuncoli and Minck Oosterveer. The issue goes on sale in August, just as Spider-Island kicks into gear!

SPIDER-ISLAND Unleashes Spider-Man’s DEADLY FOES
With all of Manhattan quarantined due to Spider-Island, The Jackal and Hobgoblin take advantage of the mass hysteria to destroy the Amazing Spider-Man! This August, join Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Fred Van Lente, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Minck Oosterveer as they bring on the bad guys for Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1! How will each of these villains exploit the spider-plague that’s eating the Big Apple from the inside out? And what perverse plans have they crafted for Spider-Man?
“The new Hobgoblin and the Jackal play central roles in Slott and Ramos’ Spider-Island epic. With this double-sized special we’re giving the readers two thrilling, death-defying stories connected directly to Spider-Island’s main artery,” said senior editor Steve Wacker. “This ain’t just a couple origin stories. Chris Gage and Fred Van Lente worked closely with Dan to weave stories that serve to violently expand the main Spider-Island plot.”
Discover the consequences when two of the most twisted minds Spider-Man has ever faced take their madness to an all-new extreme this August, only in Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1!
