Per Marvel, Spectacular Spider-Men is due to launch in early March 2024. The series hails from writer Greg Weisman and artist Humberto Ramos. In addition to being one of the creators behind Disney’s Gargoyles, Weisman is known for his work on the acclaimed 2008-2009 animated series The Spectacular Spider-Man. In Weisman and Ramos’ new comic series, readers can expect to see Miles and Peter “team up on the regular, comparing notes and using said notes to take on some of their most dangerous bad guys” — starting with the Jackal.

Earth-616’s Peter Parker and Earth-1610 native Miles Morales are no strangers to teaming up. The multiversal allies first met in the five-part limited series Spider-Men in 2012. Since then, the two web-slingers have joined forces on numerous occasions — across several different mediums. Most recently, they shared the spotlight in the PlayStation 5-exclusive title Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. However, Spectacular Spider-Men marks the first time Peter and Miles have co-headlined an ongoing comic series.
What to expect from Spectacular Spider-Men
“I’m so thrilled to be writing Spidey again, and the fact that I get to write both Spideys, together, makes the gig doubly sweet,” Weisman said. “It’s fun for me, because in this book, I see the younger Miles trying really hard to show his maturity to his mentor Peter, while the older Pete feels free to let out his inner 16-year-old with Miles. So there’s a bit of role reversal to the normal mentor-protege relationship than one might expect to see.
“But I think both Pete and Miles still feel very true to character,” the writer continued. “And when things get serious, so do our boys (quippage notwithstanding). What we’re seeing here is the evolution from mentor and protegee to them simply being good friends. And that change of status (in process, as it is) really interests me as a writer. Oh, and Humberto’s art is so damn gorgeous.”
“From a very young age, my goal was to draw Spider-Man for Marvel Comics, and now that it has become a recurring reality in my life, I enjoy every occasion in which I am called to do so, or as I like to say ‘come back home,’ and I could not ask for a better way to do that than alongside Greg Weisman who gave us the greatest Spider-Man TV series!” Ramos added. “Not only that, but in this book, I not only have the joy of drawing not one but two Spider-Mans. Drawing Peter’s adventures was exciting enough, I can only imagine how it will be drawing both Peter and Miles’ adventures! I love my job!”
