Earlier on Tuesday, Marvel announced another "Spider-Island" tie-in, Spider-Island: The Amazing Spider-Girl, from writer Paul Tobin and artist Pepe Larraz. Marvel's full press release follows: With all of Manhattan thrown into the chaos of Spider-Island, newly exclusive writer Nick Spencer and acclaimed artist Emma Rios send Marvel’s original runaways into the fray with Spider-Island: Cloak & Dagger #1 (of 3)! That’s right True Believer, Cloak and Dagger are back and with Spider-Man’s world turned upside down he’ll need help from all corners of the Marvel Universe. Luckily, with roughly 1.5 million residents running rampant throughout the city that never sleeps, Cloak and Dagger jump back into action and defend a legion of spider-powered New Yorkers from turning on themselves and each other!
“Nick and Emma are two of the most explosive new talents in comics and they’re matched perfectly on with Cloak and Dagger…two of Marvel’s most exciting characters,” said Marvel Senior Editor Steve Wacker. “ This is the definitely the book to watch coming out of Spider-Island.”
