Frequent collaborators Joe Kelly and Chris Bachalo are reuniting for a new Spider-Man ongoing anticipated to launch this June.
Announced as part of Marvel Comics’ presentation at this week’s ComicsPRO Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon, Non-Stop Spider-Man will be, according to Kelly, “relentless…”
“Non-Stop Spider-Man is, for me, the best of what Marvel comics can be: relentless action, epic storytelling, mind-melting art, and relevant themes, all grounded by the heart and soul of one of my all-time favorite characters, Spider-Man,” Kelly said in the announcement. “Chris and I want to redline your adrenaline and shatter your hearts, giggling the whole time. Please sign your waivers and gather your safety gear of choice before issue one comes out. I truly can’t wait for this. Buckle up, Tigers.”
Kelly and Bachalo have a long history together, some of it with Spider-Man. They first worked together in 1998 for Uncanny X-Men, then the duo worked together on the creator-owned series Steampunk for DC/Wildstorm. Then after each having individual runs with Spider-Man, the two worked together in 2008 and 2009 during Amazing Spider-Man‘s “Brand New Day” era.
“[Editor] Nick Lowe has a superpower. He picks up the phone, calls me and says the exact combination of words that make me want to drop everything and dive head first into the Marvel Universe,” Kelly said of his reunion with Spider-Man and Bachalo. “Last time it was Spider-Man, Deadpool, Ed McGuinness. No brainer, yes. This time it was Spider-Man, Non-Stop, Chris Bachalo. Again, yes… but ‘Non-Stop?’”
