Spider-Man Manga Series Announced Based on PS4 Game
It has been quite a busy year for everyone’s favorite wall-crawling superhero. The Academy Award-winning Into the Spider-verse animated film won over audiences and critics alike, and soon Spidey will close out the Infinity Saga of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Spider-Man: Far From Home. Spider-Man also made a big return to video games with the Spider-Man PS4 game developed by Insomniac Games. This iteration of Peter Parker’s story was heavily praised by its players, and it seems that Japanese audiences are especially hungry for more. Now, A new Spider-Man manga series based on the game has been officially announced.

Kodansha announced the new Spider-Man manga series earlier this week on their official Twitter account. The series will be titled Spider-Man: Fake Red and will build upon the version of Peter Parker that players got to meet in the recent PS4 game. The first issue will make its debut on the Japanese Kodansha app later this summer.
Marvel will provide some assistance with the story while the artwork will be done by Yusuke Osawa, who has worked on manga series Green Worldz and Six Bullets. Osawa is certainly fit for this series, as he won a Marvel Manga competition hosted by Kodansha not too long ago for writing an interesting and unique take on the Spider-Man story. Hopefully Osawa gets to utilize some of that unreleased creative project with the new manga. It would also definitely be nice to see the series translated for the west, and for Peni Parker to be included in the mix as well, wouldn’t it? The spider-verse has certainly proven to be more flexible in that regard lately.
