Marvel Comics has announced Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man, a new series from writer Tom Taylor and artist Juann Cabal.

The title was announced during Marvel's Spider-Man panel at New York Comic Con 2018. The series will focus on a smaller view of Peter Parker's life.

"With a lot of heroes, they're most heroic when they're in their suit and hide away their nature the rest of the time," Taylor told Marvel.com. "But Peter's humanity and kindness isn't ever hidden. He wants to do the right thing by everyone no matter whether he's on the ground or swinging through the sky. I've always loved when Peter Parker is at his most relatable.

"Sure, he's a guy who saves the world, but he's still struggling to pay his bills with his housemates," he continued. "That's the heart of this series. We're going to tell some big stories here, and introduce an all-new hero, but it's all about the micro. This is Peter finding adventure in his apartment building, a few doors down."

A previous volume of the title written by Peter David ran for 24 issues from 2005-2007. Cover art for that series by Mike Wieringo is seen above. Cover art by Andrew Robinson is seen here.

Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man debuts in January.
