First Look At Spider-Man 100th Anniversary Special

100th Anniversary Special - Spider-Man #1

Marvel Comics has released a preview of 100th Anniversary Special – Spider-Man #1, from writer Sean Ryan and artist In-Hyuk Lee. The issue takes a look at what Spider-Man's world looks like in 2061, where the Kingpin has taken control of a techno-symbiote suit.

"We're jumping into a story already in progress for this issue,'" explains writer Sean Ryan in an interview with "We're treating this issue as if it was the last issue in a long arc that has been running in the Spider-Man books for a while. This issue sees the story coming to an end. The idea of the story being that the symbiote is back, but it's been infused with technology that gives its host the power to plug in to the grid and control anything connected to it. And this being the future, that's just about everything."

Marvel will be releasing a 100th Anniversary Special issue each week in July, with each issue looking into the future of a different character or team.
