Spider-Island is about to overrun New York. If you've read this week's Amazing Spider-Man #660, you saw another clue as to what will bring on the Infestation. There's a threat against Spider-Man that has been building for years.

Soon, all of Manhattan will be quarantined. You would think that this would make the whole mess easier to deal with, right? That won't necessarily be the case.

The new Hobgoblin and the Jackal will be taking advantage of the mass hysteria to destroy Spider-Man. Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Fred Van Lente, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Minck Oosterveer will bring us Spider-Island: Deadly Foes in August.

Before you dismiss this as another simple mini-event, remember there's more. We already know that Cloak & Dagger will defending the front lines of Spider-Island courtesy of Nick Spencer and Emma Rios. Spider-Girl may have had her series canceled but she will also play a role in Spider-Island: The Amazing Spider-Girl.

But what about the new Venom?

In Venom #6, Flash Thompson might be America's only hope to end the madness.

How can that be? What about Spider-Man? Remember we spoke to Venom writer, Rick Remender recently at WonderCon? He mentioned how Peter would appear in the first arc and when I asked about Anti-Venom or Carnage, his reply was "...Spider-Island. See what happens."

Remender also said:

I can't give away who we'll be seeing Venom go up against, but they are all huge characters and fights that Spider-fans have been itching to see. Tom Fowler’s pages so far are jaw-dropping and there are some legendary bouts >cough< Anti-Venom >cough< awaiting readers.

It will be interesting to see how Flash and Venom will react to Spider-Man and Spider-Island. Will Flash be able to control the suit when all it wants to do is put an end to any and all wall-crawlers? We'll have to wait until this summer to find out.

This looks like its gonna be a really good story, I've been enjoying Slott's run on ASM in trade format.


Is there any similarities to this story to that of Batman's No Man's Land?

I have no idea how Cloak & Dagger will fit into all of this, but Nick Spencer and Emma Rios writing and drawing one of my favourite underdog duo? Yes please!

(And if Marvel feel like turning the mini into an ongoing, I wouldn't object...)

@antiterra: Cloak an Dagger wre big players in Maximum Carnage so maybe if Carnage returns he'll want a round 2 :O

Not gonna happen. :)

Unless of course you meant them in the same comic fighting. In which case, yes.

THIS WILL KICK ASS.

Really? "Spider-Island"? Comes off as a little bit of a Batman: Arkham Asylum/No Man's Land rip-off.

who's doing the artwork for the event? cause im really not a fan of what they've been doing with bigtime. i can understand wanting to give readers and the writers something a little different to work with each each arc, but it gets annoying going from Ramos, to caselli, to martin, then back to caselli one after another in less than 2 months...especially when out of those 3 the only one i can stomach is Caselli

Spider-man comics have been so much fun lately, I am really getting into them.
Love the direction they have taken him,
being on the FF, working at Horizon, lots of fun ideas going around.

Why isn't G-Man splashing cold water on this arc? He does it for most of them, age of x, chaos war, etc.

Read the alluding to this story in the Amazing Spider-Man FCBD.  Not a regular Spidey reader I will say but this story does seem intriguing...

G-Man likes Spider-Man.
If I'm not mistaken it's his favorite.

And besides. It looks to be a pretty decent Spider-Man story.

I like the updated version of the "Hob Goblin ripping Spidey-suit in half" cover.

Hmmm, now that I've actually wrote that...I'm wondering if there wasn't an easier way to write that...

Awesome stuff!

And that Hobgoblin, is that really that good Green Goblin  from the 90s? Nice!!

And Flash turning into a composite Venom/Spider-man up there??

Eh, I still think the story is not very inspired, to be blunt, I hate the idea. But Slott's a great writer, those images are awesome, and I can't wait to see Eddie kicking *** again.

@perry_411: I'm honest when it comes to what I like and don't like. Some have complained that I don't voice my opinions against things. I'm actually on the fence with Spider-Island but I am curious to see how it played out. Age of X just didn't capture my interest right away, yet somehow, Flashpoint has me excited, despite some similarities to Age of X.

What I really wanna see is MJ with spider-powers.

They won't last but this is something I wanna see.

So is X-Factor going to be dealing with this too? I mean they're in Manhattan. Although they have their own mess to deal with, especially with what's going on with Wolfsbane and Strong Guy. Hmmmmm...

 

But I do like me some Cloak and Dagger.

So far, no X-Factor, and they probably won't.
Herc, Heroes for Hire, Spider-Girl, Cloak & Dagger, Venom ( and of course this mini-series Deadly Foes ) seem to be the only tie-ins.
