SPIDER-ISLAND Expands in September with AVENGERS One-Shot

SPIDER-ISLAND: AVENGERS in September

Another "Spider-Island" tie-in is coming in September, this time a Spider-Island: Avengers #1 one-shot. The creative team is writer Christopher Yost and artist Mike McKone, who are currently paired on another event tie-in: the Fear Itself: Spider-Man three-issue miniseries.

The one-shot joins previously announced Spider-Island tie-ins Spider-Island: Cloak & Dagger, Spider-Island: The Amazing Spider-Girl, Spider-Island: Deadly Hands of Kung Fu, a Spider-Island: Deadly Foes one-shot and the ongoing Venom series. The main "Spider-Island" story will be told in Amazing Spider-Man, starting with August's #667.

Seen on the cover are Hawkeye, Jessica Jones, Ms. Marvel, and — surely to attract the most attention — Frog Man. Marvel's press release follows:

They’ve endured a war, stopped an invasion, and prevented a siege…but can The Avengers do whatever a spider can? Marvel is pleased to announce Spider-Island: Avengers #1, a Spider-Island tie-in from the acclaimed team of Christopher Yost and Mike McKone (Avengers Academy)! Manhattan is over-run with wall-crawling New Yorkers and the Avengers must halt the mayhem! But as Earth’s Mightiest struggle against a spider-powered ultimatum on the United Nations, they’ll discover that with great power comes even greater adversity! Who can save the Avengers from an eight-legged Armageddon?  Does all hope lie within Frog Man? (“Good lord, I hope not.”- Dan Slott) The answer will shock you this September, as the Avengers become Amazing in Spider-Island: Avengers #1!
