WBW (Comic)Book Corner: Spider-Man 2099 #1

spidey2099-1

ALL-NEW SERIES FROM THE PAGES OF AMAZING SPIDER-MAN! The book you have been demanding for months finally hits the stands! Miguel O Hara is Spider-Man in the year 2099 but he’s currently stuck in the year 2014. He was stranded here by his father who is the head of an evil corporation called Alchemax in 2099. But in 2014, Alechmax has just been formed and Miguel has a chance to stop its corruption before it starts! You’d think being a man out of time would make you a man without enemies, but Spider-Man 2099 is about to discover that he’s not the only one hoping for a better tomorrow, one that might be ensured by The Adjustor eliminating Miguel from the time stream altogether! Join comics legend (and Spider-Man 2099 creator) Peter David and breakthrough artist Will Sliney (Superior Spider-Man Team-up) for the most adventure you’ll find in a book this side of the twenty second century!

This week on the WBW Book Corner we have another comic book special for you, and by special I really do mean it! Not only is it the amazing return of the sensational Spider-Man 2099, but its also illustrated by Irish-Man extraordinaire Will Sliney! You might have seen Will’s work in a few months back in an issue of Superior Spider-Man Team-Up or maybe in an issue of A+X. Will is also the writer and artist of his very own graphic novel: Celtic Warrior: The Legend of Cú Chulainn!

Spider-Man 2099 spins a different web this time around from his first appearance back in Spider-Man 2099 #1 in 1992! This time around he is in 2014 and–y’know what: I’ll let you read it from the first page of the comic itself:

Miguel O Hara was a young genetics genious employed at Megacorporation Alchemax in the future city of Nueva York. One of his experiments, to replicate the powers of your current Spider-Man, was turned against him and re-wrote his DNA to make it 50% spider! He gained amazing powers and became the Amazing Spider-Man of 2099.

Recently, a temporal distortion threatened the life of Tyler Stone, head of Alchemax in 2099 (and secretly Miguel’s father)! Spider-Man 2099 traveled back to the earliest days of Alchemax (which you call the present) to save the life of his grandfather Tiberius Stone. But Miguel was stranded in 2014 with no way home!

Spider-Man 2099 has a strong story by a great writer, and amazing art by a great artist! I could tell you all the reasons why you should or shouldn’t buy this comic, but I’m not! Instead I’m just going to share with you some of the amazing pages that were released to the public to preview and promote the book!
