    There is nothing off-putting like a rich person buying their children careers. I know rich ppl do this all the time but does it have to be this blatant? There has been a lot of celebrities who have written for Marvel but I never blinked because I understood why it was happening but this kind of nepotism is just disgusting in my opinion.

    Thank you! Perfectly said. Iím glad someone else shares my view on this. Itís just JJ slapping his name on it and letting his son write it. The rest of you, have fun, knock yourself out. This will be mediocre at best and forgotten a couple months after the last low-selling issue. Iíll be saving my money by sticking to ASM and not encouraging the 1%ís nepotism and inherited privilege.

    At the very least I should like the art work since Sara Pichelli is on it. Glad she's back working on a Spidey book. Looking forward to giving this a go at least.

    Which makes him a perfect fit to write comics.

    Cool I guess. I don't know how many die hard Abrams fans will bother picking up a comic with his name on it though. I'm personally more hyped about Hickman taking over X-Men than a movie director writing a mini-series right now. (And since Spencer has been pretty solid on ASM I can't think of anyone else I would be more excited about writing Spidey.)

    I don't know where this cover comes from, but on the original posted pic, there is not all those lens-flares.

    To go back on topic, I never liked J.J.Abrams' workd. And the cover art is so so. So I don't see why this needed all this announcement.
    Let's hope it's good, but I have a doubt.

    good god. the abrams privilege/nepotism sucks...............but also the spider-man 4 adaption wouldíve sucked ass too. idk if itís because im deathly allergic to movie-to-comic adaptions but they are never good. Ever. wouldíve been cool if they were doing a Spidey & Mary Jane book with Kathryn Immonen and Sara Pichelli.

    I donít like this news. I donít like it one bit. I mean itís partly due to this guy that we have a mess in both Star Wars and Star Trek. Spider-Man is already a messy place donít let this guy into it.

    The last paragraph of the Newsarama article is probably the most salient point for me (emphasis mine):
    And what does Marvel have to show for it? A new comic that could have garnered genuine interest had it been presented in a different manner, now tangled in a web of ill will. Which is a shame, given it’s being drawn by the amazingly, spectacularly talented Sara Pichelli, co-creator of Miles Morales, and features one of the most well-known names in the entertainment industry making his superhero comic debut… with Henry Abrams, son of famous director JJ Abrams.
    I don't think the charges of nepotism will be completely eliminated had this been announced properly, but it could have been reduced. I just hope it doesn't reach the extreme of issuing death threats, which sadly has afflicted social media.
