Our favorite webhead is in BIG trouble this summer as he becomes embroiled in the SINISTER WAR.

Things are looking pretty bleak for Spidey starting this July, Third Eye Faithful. With some of the biggest and baddest that have ever graced the pages of Spider-Man comics taking on our fearless web-slinger… and each other? What’s going to be left of a bunch fo Spider-Man’s most fearsome foes? What’s going to be left of Spider-Man himself? We aren’t quite sure yet, but we know we aren’t going to miss a single page of SINISTER WAR.

DOCTOR OCTOPUS IS BACK! AND THE SINISTER WAR HAS BEGUN!
Ock’s got a new Sinister Six and if you think he’s thought big in the past, think again. What Ock DOESN’T know is that the VULTURE has a sextet of his own: THE SAVAGE SIX! It’s an all-out WAR between two of the greatest villains in the Marvel Universe, and the only person they hate more than each other is SPIDER-MAN! Spidey’s in deep trouble with the toughest battle that he’s ever faced. Nick Spencer and Mark Bagley team up for this epic Spider-Man story guaranteed to shock readers everywhere!

What’s the scoop on SINISTER WAR? What makes it one of summer’s biggest must-reads?

The series will have dueling Sinister Six teams fighting each other with Doctor Octopus’s Sinister Six going up against the Vulture’s Savage Six. Our friends over at Marvel say the villain teams will be “in a war that puts all of New York City in the crossfire.” The new series will also see “the grand return of Doctor Octopus,” who has been dead for years but with his consciousness embedded inside a Jackal created clone.

So who exactly is going to be making a mess of New York for Spider-Man to attempt to keep up with? Just based on the first cover of SINISTER WAR alone, we’re looking at Doctor Octopus, Vulture, The Lizard, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, Hydroman, Rhino, Scorpion, and Tarantula. Plus King Cobra and Stegron the Dinosaur Man.

That might not be all, but we don’t want to give away too much, because this is going to be a can’t miss series for Spider-Man fans. (Plus, there’s a sweet wraparound cover by the ultra talented Mark Bagley that you’re going to want to get your hands on if you want to see even more characters!)
