We’re not sure why Marvel is only capitalizing on Spider-Man Noir’s popularity AFTER Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse aired in theaters but there’s no crying over spilled milk. Whatever the case, fans who have been curious about Spider-Man Noir will now be able to read all of his adventures in one big paperback collection. Considering how hard (or expensive) it can be to find the previous paperbacks or single issues, this isn’t a bad deal at all.
Dubbed Spider-Man Noir: The Complete Collection, this collects all of Noir’s stories thus far. In fact, these might be his only stories since Noir was killed during the events of Spider-Geddon, which seems like a dumb move in hindsight. Then again, this is comic books we are talking about, so he could always come back through some convoluted way.
Here’s the full solicitation (via Newsarama):
“The hard-boiled adventures of the grittiest web-slinger in the Spider-Verse! In the dark days of the Great Depression, young reporter Peter Parker finds himself forever changed by a spider’s bite — and resolves to take on crime and corruption as the urban vigilante called Spider-Man! And there are no shortage of foes — from gangland bosses the Goblin and Crime Master, to pulp-era twists on familiar faces like Kraven, Chameleon, Doctor Octopus and more! But will the seductive Felicia Hardy prove friend or foe? Plus: Spider-Man Noir enters the Spider-Verse via an encounter with Mysterio — and shares a spectacular team-up with a six-armed Spidey! And a brand-new video-comic adventure, adapted for print! Collecting SPIDER-MAN NOIR #1-4, SPIDER-MAN NOIR: EYES WITHOUT A FACE #1-4, EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE #1, SPIDER-GEDDON: SPIDER-MAN NOIR VIDEO COMIC and material from SPIDER-VERSE TEAM-UP #1.”
Fans will be able to pick up Spider-Man Noir: The Complete Collection this May.
