Spider-Man: Unforgiven – A Vampiric Team of Superheroes Emerges in New Three-Part Series at Marvel
Marvel Comics has announced a new three-part series that will see a vampiric team of superheroes emerging from the shadows to save the world and it all begins with Spider-Man: Unforgiven. The three-part series of one-shot issues will reintroduce heroes from 2011’s Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula as they make their presence felt across the entire Marvel Universe as they cross paths with Spider-Man, X-Men, and Captain America. The series will be written by Tim Seeley with art by Sid Kotian.
Marvel Comics‘ description of Spider-Man: Unforgiven reads:
“Who can resist the call of the blood? A group of vigilante vampires have decided to fight crime — while at the same time, wage a desperate war within themselves to reject their own bloodthirsty natures! The Forgiven’s new saga will kick off in SPIDER-MAN: UNFORGIVEN #1, where the team will confront a new foe with a desire to transform vampires into their most powerful and violent selves.
The storyline will then continue with more high-stakes vampire drama in X-MEN: UNFORGIVEN #1 and AVENGERS: UNFORGIVEN #1. This epic struggle for the souls of the soulless will make readers rethink the place these creatures of the night have in the Marvel Universe!”
Seeley shares that he has a special obsession with Marvel’s horror heroes, saying:
“I love Marvel super heroes, no doubt, but I’ve got a special obsession with Marvel’s horror heroes. UNFORGIVEN gives that creepy, sexy, weird underbelly a chance to shine as a horrific conspiracy unites a crew of vampires with Spider-Man, the X-Men and Captain America, and shows us the stark differences (and surprisingly similarities) of those who are gifted with the ability to fight evil, and those who have to carry evil’s curse.
By the end of this epic event, we’ll have toured a lot of dark corners of the Marvel Universe, and reminded readers that monsters are at its shrunken black heart!”
Spider-Man: Unforgiven #1 will be available at your favorite local comic shop and digitally next year. Check out the cover reveal by artist Kyle Hotz below:
