Official Press Release

With all of Manhattan quarantined due to Spider-Island, The Jackal and Hobgoblin take advantage of the mass hysteria to destroy the Amazing Spider-Man! This August, join Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Fred Van Lente, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Minck Oosterveer as they  bring on the bad guys for Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1! How will each of these villains exploit the spider-plague that’s eating the Big Apple from the inside out? And what perverse plans have they crafted for Spider-Man?

“The new Hobgoblin and the Jackal play central roles in Slott and Ramos’ Spider-Island epic. With this double-sized special we’re giving the readers two thrilling, death-defying stories connected directly to Spider-Island’s main artery,” said senior editor Steve Wacker. “This ain’t just a couple origin stories. Chris Gage and Fred Van Lente worked closely with Dan to weave stories that serve to violently expand the main Spider-Island plot.”

Discover the consequences when two of the most twisted minds Spider-Man has ever faced take their madness to an all-new extreme this August, only in Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1!
