According to Marvel, the issue will include the debut of a new Spider-Man villain from Cho and Falcone, a horror-fueled adventure that dives deep into Peter Parker’s core from Anderson, Gaiman’s return to the Marvel Universe following his Eternals run and Marvel 1602, a story set in the future about Peter and Mary Jane’s enduring love from Slott and Cheung and more.

Spider-Man first appeared in 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. The new Amazing Fantasy one-shot not only pays tribute to the character’s long history in comics, but will also leave an impact on the character’s mythos moving forward in the Marvel Universe. A number of the creators involved with Amazing Fantasy #1000 have either worked on past Amazing Spider-Man runs or other stories featuring Spider-Man, including Hickman’s Secret Wars, Busiek’s Untold Tales of Spider-Man, Dodson’s Marvel Knights Spider-Man, Slott’s 2008 Amazing Spider-Man series and more.

Marvel is also honoring Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary with a new Amazing Spider-Man relaunch that kicked off in April. Coming from Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr., the series sees Peter Parker struggle to put the pieces of his life back together after finding himself on bad terms with some of his closest friends and allies. The first issue of the series revealed that Mary Jane, Peter’s longtime love interest, has two children and seemingly a new partner who isn’t Peter. The story continues in The Amazing Spider-Man #2, which releases on May 25. Marvel has teased that future issues of the series will see Peter get a new suit from the Green Goblin and battle a new mega-villain called the Sinister Adaptoid.

Amazing Fantasy #1000 features cover art by John Romita Jr. The one-shot arrives in August from Marvel.
