What they’re saying:

  • Writer Taran Killam: “I’m a lifelong Spider-Man fan. In fact, the email account I’ve had since I was twelve is a version of Spider-Man. (Who knew 57 people chose [email protected] before me?) I also love a good western. So when the fine folks at Marvel (huge shoutout to Nick Lowe!) asked if I wanted to write a Spider-Verse issue featuring Webslinger, I said yes faster than a mustang in the eye of a cyclone. No, that most certainly is not a rejected line of dialogue from my script!!!! It is an unbelievable honor to contribute to the Spider-Verse that has thrilled and delighted me since my youth. It was more fun than I could have anticipated. I hope everyone enjoys this issue half as much as I enjoyed collaborating with Nick, Kathleen, Brian and Juan.”
