New ongoing series ‘Spider-Gwen: The Ghost-Spider’ coming April 2024

This April, Stephanie Phillips and Chris Campana launch a new SPIDER-GWEN: THE GHOST-SPIDER ongoing comic series that will solidify the character’s place in the main Marvel Universe.

Press Release

Spider-Gwen fans rejoice: Marvel Comics has announced a new ongoing series, Spider-Gwen: The Ghost-Spider, for the character. Written by Stephanie Phillips with art by Chris Campana, the series launches on April 10, 2024.

“Right after I started working on this new Spider-Gwen ongoing, I saw a little girl on Halloween dressed as Gwen and hitting some cool spidey poses,” Phillips shared. “It was kind of a surreal moment to realize that I get to be a part of Gwen’s next big chapter, bringing her into the 616 and giving readers stories that make us rethink who Gwen is and what her role is within this new universe. I’m also working on this story with the incredible Chris Campana, a great collaborator and friend, and I truly believe this is one of the most special books I’ve been a part of.”

So what’s Spider-Gwen: The Ghost-Spider about?

Welcome to New York! Gwen truly becomes a Ghost-Spider when she moves full time to the universe where Gwen Stacy died years ago. But why did she leave Earth-65? Why aren’t the other spiders supposed to know she’s here? Why isn’t she supposed to suit up? And who will get hurt when she does?

“Stephanie’s writing allows for a ton of artistic freedom, while providing a great framework to work inside of,” Campana added. “I was onboard the moment I heard she was attached.”

“Drawing Gwen is surreal,” he continued. “She is such a pivotal part of Spider history. This suit and her character allow for a fun and powerful artistic approach. Gwen feels strong and in control on the page. I’m having a lot of fun.

New ongoing series 'Spider-Gwen: The Ghost-Spider' coming April 2024

New York, NY— December 19, 2023 — With various acclaimed solo series and appearances on both the big and small screen, Gwen Stacy of Earth-65, aka Ghost-Spider, has proven to be one of Marvel’s biggest breakout heroes of the decade! Hailing from an alternate Earth where the fateful radioactive Spider bit Gwen instead of Peter Parker, GHOST-SPIDER weaved her way into the main Marvel Universe, calling both dimensions home… until now! Launching in April, a new run of SPIDER-GWEN: THE GHOST-SPIDER will make Gwen a permanent resident of the iconic 616!

Ghost-Spider’s new era will be delivered by two rising Marvel Comics stars—writer Stephanie Phillips (Capwolf & the Howling Commandos) and artist Chris Campana (Red Goblin). Kicking off with Gwen trapped in the 616 by mysterious otherworldly forces, the young hero’s fresh status quo will open the door to exciting new storytelling opportunities as she struggles to adjust in a world that’s not her own, and is forced to confront the tragic legacy of 616’s own Gwen. Hitting the ground running as New York’s next great super hero, she’ll gain both new enemies and new friends, but the secret behind her current circumstance looms large, threatening to shatter her trust with her fellow Spider-Heroes…
