Morbius and Kraven put Ben Reilly to the test in Amazing Spider-Man’s Beyond Era

There’s a new Spider-Man in town! Starting in October, an all-star lineup of writers and artists will take Spidey beyond the limit in an era without Peter Parker as his fan-favorite clone, Ben Reilly, takes over the mantle. Written by Kelly Thompson, Cody Ziglar (with the rest of the Beyond Board of Saladin Ahmed, Patrick Gleason, and Zeb Wells) with art by Sara Pichelli and Michael Dowling, these adventures of Spider-Man will be like none that came before, offering a fresh take on the Spider-Man mythos and an exciting development for Ben Reilly’s super hero legacy.

This November, fans will see Ben Reilly’s early outings as Spider-Man in the pages of Amazing Spider-Man #78-80. Now backed by the Beyond Corporation, Spider-Man is in for a slew of dangerous missions. After being brutally taken down by Morbius, Spider-Man will fall into a trap by one the deadliest foes in his legendary rogue gallery: Kraven the Hunter! The hunter is going to test his prey like never before and Spider-Man is sent into a hallucinatory spiral that will test his sanity and force him to do the impossible.

Also arriving in November will be Amazing Spider-Man #78.BEY, a pivotal issue written by Jed MacKay with art by Eleonora Carlini that will feature the Daughters of the Dragon as Spider-Man’s tough new trainers! But is even their skill level enough for the mission that the Beyond Corporation is about to send them on? This special installment of Amazing Spider-Man will debut a mysterious new villain: OBSIDIAN STAR!

Check out the covers now and see if Ben Reilly is up to the challenge when the new era of Amazing Spider-Man begins this fall!

Arthur Adams has Peter Parker and Ben Reilly Swing Into Action on an Amazing Spider-Man #75 Cover

This October, an all-star creative team is set to take Amazing Spider-Man beyond your wildest expectations! This new era will see bold changes brought to the Spider-Man mythos, beginning with the return of Ben Reilly. Fans can see him joining forces with Peter Parker on the newly revealed cover of Amazing Spider-Man #75. But as the cover of Amazing Spider-Man #76 shows, this Spider team-up won’t last long and Peter Parker may be taking his final web-swing. What villain did the unthinkable and took Peter down? And is Ben Reilly, last seen operating as the Scarlet Spider, really fit to take over? Writers Zeb Wells, Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar, and Patrick Gleason are joining forces with artists Sara Pichelli and Michael Dowling to bring you these answers and more!

Check out the Arthur Adams covers below and get ready to meet the new (and improved) Spider-Man when Ben Reilly suits up this October!

• Things didn’t quite work out between Felicia and Johnny Storm (maybe because it was at least half just a way into 4 Yancy St).
• So the Black Cat has a REAL date. But with WHO?!?!
• Meanwhile, she doesn’t know Odessa Drake and the Thieves Guild have captured her mentor The Black Fox and have horrible plans for him.

Guest Artist Alejandra Gutiérrez Takes Us to the Dirty Mind in SfSx #3

SfSx #3

The upcoming issue of SfSx #3 by Tina Horn will showcase the talents of guest artist Alejandra Gutiérrez and focus on a behind-the-scenes look at underground club, The Dirty Mind. SfSx #3 will hit stores in November from Image Comics and regular series artist Michael Dowling will return for SfSx #4 in December.

In SfSx #3, readers take a tour of this decadent underworld just as its denizens realize they need to take a stand for everything they believe in.

SfSx is a social thriller about sex, love, and torture that reads like Sex Criminals in Gilead crossed with Hustlers—with a Sunstone twist. In a draconian America where sexuality is bureaucratized and policed, a group of queer sex workers keep the magic alive in an underground club called the Dirty Mind. Using their unique bondage skills, they resolve to infiltrate the mysterious government Pleasure Center, free their friends, and fight the power.

SfSx #3 (Diamond Code SEP190213) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, November 20.

SFSX #1 Heads Back to Print Before Wednesday’s Release

Award-winning kink culture writer Tina Horn and artist Michael Dowling are turning heads with their highly anticipated, sex-positive comic book series SfSx and a rare rush to second printing ordered by Image Comics ahead of Wednesday’s release. This second printing will feature new cover artwork by artist Katie Skelly.

SfSx is ramping up to be one of the most talked about series of the year with this second printing already underway, a launch party at Bluestockings Bookstore, Cafe & Activist Center, and appearances at New York Comic Con next month including signings, panels, and offsite events booked.

Set in a draconian America where sexuality is bureaucratized and policed, SfSx follows a group of queer sex workers keeping the magic alive in an underground club called the Dirty Mind. Using their unique bondage skills, they resolve to infiltrate the mysterious government Pleasure Center, free their friends, and fight the power. 

The much buzzed-about new series was first announced under the former DC Vertigo line and makes its new home at Image Comics. 

SfSx #1 is available at comic book shops this week on Wednesday, September 25.

The SfSx #1 second printing (Diamond Code AUG198267) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 23.
