Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse did much more than leave us with one of the biggest cliffhangers of all-time. The animated adventure introduced us to more Spider-People than we could possibly count. In fact, a handful of them are now integral to Miles Morales’ story. One of them is Pavitr Prabhakar, an Indian Spider-Man from Earth-50101 who lives in Mumbattan. Who can forget that epic scene of Miles, Gwen, Hobie, and the very dashing Pavitr teaming up to save his home from the Spot? We cannot wait to see what they will all do together in this final fight to save many universes from the Spot’s expansive attack. Thanks to the film’s resounding success, Pavitr is getting his own epic five-issue Marvel comic adventure in Spider-Man: India.
Spider-Man: India is written by Nikesh Shukla with Adam Kuber and Neeraj Menon crafting its artwork and Abhishek Malsuni as the comic’s penciler. Here’s a quick description of what’s going down with Pavitr Prabhakar’s Spidey:
SPIDER-MAN: INDIA RETURNS! Just in time for his big role on the silver screen, Spider-Man: India returns for his first miniseries in almost twenty years! Pavitr Prabhakar is back, fresh from “The End of the Spider-Verse” in his own universe’s Mumbai. But things aren’t exactly simple. There’s a science professor promising results, activating people’s “lizard brain” along with a ruthless businessman who may be more than he seems… Don’t miss the break-out Spider-Character of 2023!
Sounds like a blast, indeed! It is super exciting to see a crop of new stories featuring diverse Spider-Mans, especially ones that we are now getting to see on the big screen. We cannot resist a wild standalone adventure, especially one involving lizard strangeness. Spider-Man: India’s first issue is already out in the world and quickly sold out. But never fear; this friendly neighborhood Spider-Man’s first issue is getting a reprint just in time for its second issue. In fact, we have some incredible preview panels for Spider-Man: India #2 to share with you.
Spider-Man: India #2 swings to stands on July 26, so grab your copy (along with the first issue, of course!) and get ready to dive back into Pavitr’s world.
