Ryan tells Marvel his approach to tackle Spider-Man and how his perspective will reflect the course of the famous character.

“Well I’ve always loved the way Todd McFarlane and Erik Larsen drew Spidey, with the larger eyes and the crazy poses and webbing, so I will alaways be influenced by those few things. But I am trying to keep this stuff me. If you’ve read “Invincible,” you’ll recognize me on Spider-Man and how I emote and set mood and pacing.”

Comic book fans will view a new dynamic to the neighborly superhero taking on new threats, characters, and more action that can fit inside a graphic series. The official comic will go under the title name AMAZING SPIDER-MAN#1.

Ryan continues to tell Marvel the passion behind the pencil as he takes on the mantle of the iconic character.

“Spider-Man was my gateway into the world of comics so it definitely feels full circle, I’m drawing what I always dreamed of drawing when I was a teenager. And to be honest, I’ve been drawing super hero comics so long on “Invincible” that I thought this would be business as usual drawing super heroes but that kid in me is having a lot more fun drawing these characters than I thought I would have! The change to a new project was a much easier transition than I anticipated. Thank goodness!”
