Plot Synopsis: Peter Parker finds himself in the middle of the biggest, most wide-ranging adventure he's ever had, and out of the gate, it has turned him into a savage beast! Forget everything you know about Spider-Man. All rules and regulations are out the door, and Peter Parker may never be the same!
My Take: When it comes to Spider-Man getting in touch with his animalistic side, the results are always interesting either because they change the status quo for Spidey or because it unlocks a ton of new abilities. If you read the Morlun arcs, then you know that Spider-Man's conflicts with him led to quite a few changes to Spider-Man's powers as well as the overall mythos of Spider-Man. I am confident that Joe Kelly will knock this Savage Spider-Man limited series out of the park.

“You may think you’ve seen a monstrous or vicious Spider-Man before, but never like this,” says Spider-Editor Nick Lowe. “This book is so intense that you’re going to need to put it down between pages to get your breath back.”
“Spider-Man is always a huge challenge to draw, he’s not an easy character for an artist. But at the same time Spider-Man is a huge joy to draw and now we have a Savage Spider-Man who provides an even bigger challenge for an artist,” says Sandoval. “I have the pages that I am working on and I can say that I am doing my best work here for sure. Joe Kelly is the kind of writer that understands an artist needs enough room to create great illustrations and it makes my work easier and more fun. I really hope you enjoy this new book as much as I do!”
