New York, NY—March 20, 2018— Today, Marvel Entertainment and comiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comic shopping & reading service, announced the next exclusive comiXology Originals digital comic series with the debut of Spidey: School’s Out, a 6-issue bi-weekly series written by John Barber, (best known for writing over 140 issues of Transformers), with art by Todd Nauck (Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, Young Justice), with colors by Rachelle Rosenberg, and covers by David Nakayama.

Spidey: School’s Out arrives June 6, 2018 for $2.99 on comiXology and Kindle as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content and will be available to current subscribers of the popular comiXology Unlimited service. New subscribers to comiXology Unlimited can also enjoy it for free as part of their 30-day free trial.  Spidey: School’s Out joins Avengers: Back to Basics, Black Panther: Long Live The King, The Immortal Iron Fists and Thor Vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe, with more exclusive Marvel series to be announced.

“Summer’s here, and just like any high school student, Peter Parker can’t wait to get back to studying. Er, well, maybe he’s different in one or two ways, but seriously—who wouldn’t be excited when they’re invited to spend a few weeks at Tony Stark’s science camp? As Peter makes new friends (and new enemies), super villains target the camp’s high-tech equipment… and that means it’s time for Spidey to hit the scene,” said writer John Barber. “Spider-Man is maybe my all-time favorite character, and I’m really excited to get to tell new stories about his high-school days—and to finally get a chance to work with Todd Nauck, whose art in this story is the best I’ve ever seen from him (which is saying a lot).”

Artist Todd Nauck said, “Drawing Spidey: School’s Out hits on a lot of the high points for me drawing a Spider-Man comic! It’s always really fun to draw cool Spider-Man action. I also got to update the looks for a few of his classic villains from the Spidey rogue’s gallery as well as draw a couple of Avengers.” He continued, “John Barber’s writing and character interactions have given me so much fun and interesting material to play with visually. This project has been fun from issue #1 page 1!”

Peter Parker just survived his first year as the Amazing Spider-Man AND a year of high school! What is he going to do next? He’s going to Stark science camp!  A week indoors with the coolest technology in the world is a dream come true for Peter–and a bonanza for one Spider-foe who’s seriously upgraded his arsenal. Can Spider-Man keep the camp safe, and keep his identity secret from his first dormmate, while Peter Parker makes new friends and finishes his project on time?

“Spider-Man, a.k.a. Peter Parker, is one of the most beloved Marvel characters, and now he’s starting an all-new adventure as a summer break STEM student,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications. “Spidey: School’s Out is a fun, digital exclusive story to be enjoyed by readers everywhere.”

Fans across the globe have been attracted to Marvel’s amazing characters through top-grossing movies, critically-acclaimed TV series, and ground-breaking new publishing series that have driven titles like Guardians of the Galaxy, Daredevil, and Black Panther to new heights, alongside perennial favorites like Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
