The Amazing Spider-Man #1

Speaking with Comicbook.com Spencer talked of working with Ryan on the new series:

“I knew that Ryan was wrapping on Invincible, and I kept thinking, ‘God, would he be the perfect person for this?’ Spider-Man is such an artist book, It’s contained some of the best artists in Marvel Comics history, and I really do believe that Ryan, if he wants to be, is really one of the best superhero artists working in comics. And so, he was very much on the dream list, and we’re so lucky and thankful that he was interested in doing it, and we’re just [having] so much fun so far. And you know working with him is naturally a joy, and the pages are just so perfect. They’re really gonna blow people away.”

Subsequently CBR.com has brought us a further preview of the series. Marvel will be showing off artwork from the series as part of the 2018 Free Comic Book Day.
