Official Press Release

Spider-Man will be sensationalized once again as Marvel Knights Spider-Man is undergoing a name change to Sensational Spider-Man starting with issue #23.

The title will become Sensational Spider-Man just in time for the addition of the new creative team of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Angel Medina. Aguirre-Sacasa and Medina plan to show just how sensational Spidey can be in their first arc "Feral," which finds Spider-Man's animalistic foes, including the Lizard, Man-Wolf, and the Black Cat becoming more bestial than ever before.

"It's thrilling to be writing Spider-Man when so many exciting things are happening to him and the entire Marvel Universe," says writer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa. "It is both challenging and exciting to be aligning Sensational Spider-Man back with the other Spider-Man titles as well as the Marvel Universe. It also helps that Angel Medina's art is nothing short of sensational."

Matt Yocum of says," Renowned playwright Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has nailed the tone of what a Marvel book should be." More of the same can be expected when he takes over everybody's favorite wall-crawler.

Spider-Man is going to have to be more than just amazing and spectacular to quell the strange transformations that are undergoing his deadly, long-time foes. He's going to have to be sensational.
