It seems like no story line is safe from the Marvel summer event SECRET WARS, bringing SPIDER-ISLAND into the fold. Writer Christos Gage and artist Paco Diaz bring a twist on the original SPIDER-ISLAND, one where the Spider-Queen won against Spider-Man and his spiderized friends (I think spiderized that’s an accurate enough word for it).
Anyway, take a sneak peek at SPIDER-ISLAND #1 below!
