Spider-Girl and I are now Best Friends Forever.

By now a lot of you might know that I had a new ongoing in-continuity title announced at the San Diego Comic Convention. Along with a certain barbarian, Spider-Girl has been one of my major “I can’t tell you about this project” projects for some time, and I’m excited to finally get to talk about it. Here’s a link to Marvel’s announcement, intermixed with an interview with yours truly.

I really love this cover. Anya Corazon / Spider-Girl looks so amazingly carefree. The second cover will probably just be her glaring at me for what I'm pitting her against in the first issue. Sorry, Anya!

My first work with Spider-Girl will be in Amazing Spider-Man # 648. Seen above is a J. Scott Campbell variant cover. I love how gangly Spider-Girl is. When I was a teenager, I was clumsy enough to trip over particularly feisty ants... but Anya is soaring through the skies. I guess that's why she gets to meet Spider-Man, while I just get the concilation prize of Spider-Man Underoos.

Although Spider-Man Underoos ARE kind of cool. Check out this photo that might as well be me, circa 1980-2009. (I wear A-Team Underoos, now.)

Oh look... it's preview art. This art and the next piece are both by Clayton Henry... my art partner for the Spider-Girl title. These are both partial panels. I will either color these in with my crayons, or I suppose it's possible editor Nate Cosby will hire a colorist. I just bought a new box of Crayolas, though... and I'm ready to show my mad skills.

If I knew how to insert Ennio Morricone music with this image, you'd sure as hell be hearing it right now.

Peace out! And I hope you all enjoy my new Spider-Girl title. Editor Nate Cosby and I have really been brainstorming to make a Damn Fine Comic.

    Congratulations, both on the new title and the A-Team underoos. Definitely looking forward to this.

    Thanks! And check out my new Conan book, too. So far no approval of him being in Underoos, but I’m working on it.

    I have to say that I couldn’t be more pleased that Anya is getting a larger (and continued!) role in the Marvel U again. I’ve been very fond of her since her Amazing Fantasy debut and had my fingers crossed that she’d crop back up again after her stint with Ms. Marvel— and lo and behold, she’s been all over this year. She’s a kid with a lot of potential, so I can’t wait to see where you take her!

    Thanks much! I’ve really grown to like Anya a lot… so I’m very happy to pilot the series.

  5. Congratulations, Paul. Glad to see you getting the new SPIDER-GIRL series and Anya Corazon is put back in the spotlight, especially since she was such a breakout character when she first appeared.

    Thanks! I’m really pleased to be moving her character forward. Marvel’s been really open for me to pave new paths for her.
