NEWS: All You Need To Know About Luca Pizzari’s Amazing Spider-Man In March
The excellent news that broke earlier this week that Luca Pizzari will be debuting on a Amazing Spider-Man special next March was met with universal congratulations for the artist. With the issue heralding the first part of a three issue crossover story here’s the lowdown on what’s coming up in with the arc.
The story will be titled ‘Attack on New Attilan’ that will continue into Inhumans and finishing in All New Captain America. Something big wants to destroy New Attilan and the fact that New Attilan is in the Hudson River puts Manhattan and Spider-Man right in its crosshairs.
Death of Wolverine: Logan’s Legacy scribe Jeff Loveness will pen all three chapters with Luca pencilling the first issue of the arc and all three issues will have connecting variants by star artist Adam Kubert.
This will be the first full issue for Pizzari stateside after a contributing piece in the Stan Sakai Usagi Yojimbo thirty year tribute book ‘The Sakai Project’ that was released by Dark Horse earlier this year and wriiten by Darrin O’Toole.
In what is turning out to be a good week for Pizzari, it was also announced that The O’Brien Press will release the original graphic novel Granuaile Queen of Storms on February 16th. Granuaile is penned by Dave Hendrick and the graphic novel will mark a productive start to the new year for Pizzari after garnering the plaudits of the Irish comic audiences with his work on Atomic Diner’s Glimmer Man and the Lightning Strike anthology over the last couple of years.
As if that wasn’t enough, it was also announced that Luca will also have work published in the 2000AD Free Comic Book Day issue with a story written by Rob Williams where Doctor Sin returns to pass on his mantle (and battle a demon) in ‘Don’t Call It A Comeback’ that will be released next May.
Luca Pizzari is one name that will surely be on the lips of comic readers for many years to come.
