Hobgoblin & Jackal Star in SPIDER-ISLAND: DEADLY FOES 1-Shot

Hobgoblin & Jackal Star in DEADLY FOES

The "Deadly Foes" title is back in the world of Spider-Man. Used back in 1991 for the miniseries Deadly Foes of Spider-Man starring the Sinister Syndicate, this time around it's the one-shot Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1, out in August.

The book stars the new Hobgoblin, introduced last fall in Amazing Spider-Man, and the Jackal — both primary antagonists of the upcoming "Spider-Island" storyline. The comic will be co-written by regular Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott, along with Fred Van Lente and Christos Gage, both who have contributed to the series recently. Art is from Giuseppe Camuncoli and Minck Oosterveer.

Marvel's full press release follows below:

With all of Manhattan quarantined due to Spider-Island, The Jackal and Hobgoblin take advantage of the mass hysteria to destroy the Amazing Spider-Man! This August, join Dan Slott, Christos Gage, Fred Van Lente, Giuseppe Camuncoli and Minck Oosterveer as they bring on the bad guys for Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1! How will each of these villains exploit the spider-plague that’s eating the Big Apple from the inside out? And what perverse plans have they crafted for Spider-Man?

“The new Hobgoblin and the Jackal play central roles in Slott and Ramos’ Spider-Island epic. With this double-sized special we’re giving the readers two thrilling, death-defying stories connected directly to Spider-Island’s main artery,” said senior editor Steve Wacker. “This ain’t just a couple origin stories. Chris Gage and Fred Van Lente worked closely with Dan to weave stories that serve to violently expand the main Spider-Island plot.”

Discover the consequences when two of the most twisted minds Spider-Man has ever faced take their madness to an all-new extreme this August, only in Spider-Island: Deadly Foes #1!
