    Auction Item: Ultimate Spider-Man (2005) Wizard Ace Edition 1 FN+ 6.5

    Starts Oct 4 12:00 AM CST

    Wizard Ace Edition with wraparound acetate cover. ? THE SCOOP: Comics' greatest heroes leap into the 21st Century in a new line perfect for a new generation of readers! ? THE STORY: An outsider even amongst his own peers, highschool student Peter Parker is a young man at the crossroads of destiny. Orphaned as a youth and raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May, Peter finds himself the target of a constant tirade of pranks perpetrated by school jock "Flash" Thompson and his burly bud, nicknamed "Kong." But when fate intercedes and Peter finds himself the recipient of strange and amazing powers, how long can our hero ignore the painful prodding? And when industrialist Norman Osborn takes a deadly "interest" in this development, will Peter be able to avoid a violent case of "corporate downsizing"? When backed into a corner, will our hero learn that with great power there must come great responsibility? ? THE CREATORS: Look up the phrase "hot writer" and you'll find the name Brian Michael Bendis. But more than just the next big thing, Bendis has?in a short time? accumulated a legion of admirers for his crisp characterizations and dead-on dialogue. Bendis is joined by classic AMAZING SPIDER-MAN penciler Mark Bagley, who brings with him both years of experience and the ability to continually deliver dynamic super hero storytelling. Add on the inks of Art Thibert and you have a team that is armed with the best of veteran and fresh talent needed to thrill a new audience. ? THE IDEA: "Our characters have been around for almost 40 years," explained Bill Jemas, Marvel's President of Publishing & New Media. "It's great that our comics are so rich that storylines run forever, but we want the Ultimate books to be accessible to the first-time reader. Someone will be able to pick up an issue of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN and ULTIMATE X-MEN and have enough information in one issue to understand and appreciate it.
