Former Superior Spider-Man co-writer Christos Gage returns this fall for a Superior Octopus one-shot with artist Mike Hawthorne. Just announced at Marvel's Spider-Man panel here at Comic-Con International: San Diego, Superior Octopus promises to have, according to editor Nick Lowe, something shocking every five pages.
"If you read Superior Spider-Man, you know that when Doc Ock was in Peter Parker's body, he used supervillain methods to be a superhero — you're going to see more of that," Lowe said. "Every five pages you're going to see something that will shock you — it will either appall you or make you cheer."
Superior Octopus #1 is scheduled to debut October 8, with covers by Travis Charest.
