Publisher Comments:

Start Webbing The News! New York City becomes Infested--and eight million people are plagued! Normal people are getting Spider-Powers! But not all of them realize that with great power must also come...you know the rest. Okay, sure we often say Peter Parker's life will never be the same. But listen, pal, we've never been more serious. This will change everything for Pete, for Spidey...and possibly for YOU! Look at it this way...if EVERYONE'S a Spider-Man...then no one is. As the brilliantly fearsome Jackal rises from the past and begins organizing an army of spider-powered soldiers, how can the heroes of NYC hope to contain millons of wall-crawling New Yorkers? Plus: A dangerous new role for Venom. And, nearly 50 years in the making, the story which MUST BE READ: J. Jonah Jameson: THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAYOR!
