Expect a huge surge of "Spidey synergy" this week when the animated movie "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" hits theaters this Friday. It arrives on a wave of ecstatic reviews, like GQ's take that it's "among the best superhero films released in this or any year."
Two days before the film opens, "Miles Morales: Spider-Man #1" will make its debut. Like the movie, the all-new comic book series centers on the teenage character from Brooklyn whose dad is African-American and mom is Puerto Rican.
In the new comic book series, Miles must learn to juggle his special powers with his regular life as he faces protecting his New York City neighborhood from a group of criminals that includes a supervillain.
Vault of Midnight's downtown Detroit location will hold an official launch party/book signing Wednesday (Dec. 12th) with guest Saladin Ahmed, the metro Detroit author who's writing the series (which features illustrations by Javier Garron of Marvel's "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and #1 cover art by Brian Stelfreeze).
Ahmed, an award-winning science fiction and fantasy writer, has branched successfully into comics. This year, he won an Eisner Award this year for best new series for Marvel's "Black Bolt" and introduced the indie series "Abbott" about a 1970s female detective in Detroit.
