As Stan Lee wrote in the pages of AMAZING FANTASY #15 "Now anybody with the intelligence of a seven year old knows that if a man appeared on TV who seemed to be more spider than human, he'd be an overnight sensation!" For the first time, we peel back the curtain to see what Peter Parker's life was like after the bite but before the tragic death of his Uncle Ben. Professional wrestling, cars, girls, fame, money…ladies and gentlemen, meet Peter Parker, the wallflower bitten by a radioactive spider and given great power!

The last time we saw Simon Garth, the bank teller single-handedly stopped a gang of murderous robbers and got shot, bitten by zombies and med-evac-ed straight into Army custody for scientific experimentation as death and the necrotic infection overtook him fast. No problem, right?
Find out how Simon got out of THAT one --- assuming he did ---- and check out his further adventures battling the undead ---unless, that is, he's one of them now --- in a brutal, gory, disgusting…awesome re-imagining of one of Marvel's strangest horror heroes, that could only be dreamed up by artist/co-writer Kyle Hotz (ZOMBIE) and Eric Powell (The Goon)!
