Progress is Being Made on the Loeb/Campbell Spider-Man Project

Posted by sora_thekey (8705 posts) - - Show Bio

We have been hearing about a Jeph Loeb/Scott Campbell collaboration for a Spider-Man comic book for some time now. This week's Cup O' Joe article on revealed that this Spider-Man project is still in the works:

Board Member matthew2k10 asked "What's the status of jeph loeb and j scott campbell's spiderman project?"

Brevoort: It’s still being worked on, slowly but surely, Matthew -- and here’s a random preview panel from the second issue to prove it! It’s funny, but fans advocate all the time for us to get series like these finished or almost finished before we release them, and when we try to do that, other readers get impatient. But it’s our own fault, I expect, for getting excited about these projects and wanting to show them off and announce them so early.

 I personally can't wait! :)

I'll be collecting my pension before this comes out... JSC is infuriatingly SLOooooooooooW for someone with such a rushed style of art.

I actually talked to JSC at Dragon Con this year and asked him about this. He said there still isn't any traction, so he doesn't know.

Since Jeph Loeb is super busy these days, why can't Marvel just get another writer to work with Scott Campbell? No project should take this long to finish.

@darthfury78: Scott Campbell is the one who is taking his time. Not Loeb.

There was a time when Scott Campbell was doing Gen 13 and Danger Girl on a timely basis. I can't the idea of artists deciding to take their sweet time when guys like Todd McFarlane and Jim Lee do their job ahead of time.
