Has anybody checked this out yet? It's going to be a six issue mini-series. Every issue is set during a major event each decade. The first is the 60s and the last will be the 2010s. Pete will age normally throughout it (meaning he'll be pushing or past 70 by the final issue). It's witten by Chip Zdarsky (Peter Parker Spectacular Spider-Man) and drawn by Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man).
I read the first issue and I'm already onboard. It was a great start and I can't wait to see it all play out. The art is phenomenal too. It reminds me of 60s Spidey artists but with a Bagley twist.
Yep. The idea of Spidey aging in real time (as in actually maturing and living his life as opposed to the inept man-child Petes been in 616 since the BND arc) from the 60s up and having to deal with real life changing political and social climates sounds like a dream to me. One of the best aspects of Spidey to me is how he grows develops in comics, from a high schooler to a college student to a grown man with a wif career (not to mention juggling his double life with all that). Getting all that and more but with an actual ending is a story I've wanted for probably close to a decade now.
Also, Bagley is my all time favorite Spidey artist. He's only gotten better through the years. He's in top form for this miniseries.
