Get Ready for Free Comic Book Day with Spider-Man 2 Prequel Comic

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, one of the most anticipated games of the year, is set to be released later this year, but fans will not have to wait that long for some fresh content. On May 6, in celebration of Free Comic Book Day, a new prequel comic will be released, covering the events after Marvel’s Spider-Man, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, and leading up to the forthcoming sequel.

What to Expect

The upcoming prequel comic will focus on the lives of Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and MJ Watson as they try to balance their responsibilities to the city and to each other. One of the main themes of the comic is “is magic real?”. The story will explore this theme as a beloved super villain makes their first appearance in the comic universe. To the surprise of Peter, Miles, and MJ, this villain appears to have supernatural abilities that defy mere web-slinging and hand-to-hand combat: none other than The Hood himself.

How to Get Your Hands on It

Marvel’s Spider-Man fans from around the world can pick up a copy of the new prequel from participating comic shops on May 6. Alternatively, fans can download it using the Marvel Unlimited app.

Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered Available for Standalone Purchase

Sony also announced that Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered will be available for standalone purchase on the PlayStation Store starting in May. Players who previously owned the PS4 version (physically or digitally) of the game can upgrade to the PS5 edition for $10.

Those of you who never got around to playing the remastered PS5 edition of the 2018 game will have the opportunity to do so soon. The standalone version of Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered was previously only available to those who purchased the Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition on PS5. The game is priced at $50 for the standalone PS5 version.

Potential for a Sequel

The prequel comic is set to bridge the story between the two Spider-Man games, and it is widely expected that Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 will pick up right where the prequel comic ends. Fans of the franchise are excited to see how The Hood’s appearance in the comics will impact the storyline for the upcoming game.


As we gear up for the release of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 later this year, fans can read about what happened in the time gap between the first two games in the forthcoming prequel. The comic will cover the stories of a beloved cast of characters, with a new twist that will leave everyone wanting more. All in all, it is an exciting time to be a Spider-Man fan.
