Insomniac’s Spider-Man 2 has a free prequel comic available now

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 from Insomniac is still a ways off, but you can catch up with Peter and Miles thanks to a new Spider-Man 2 prequel comic. The comic from GamerVerse, called just Spider-Man 2, is available to read for free online, and it covers some of the arachnid duo’s exploits between the time of Miles Morales and whatever Insomniac has planned for Spider-Man 2.

The GamerVerse Spider-Man 2 is a full-length comic book that alternates between Peter and Miles as their everyday selves and as their heroic counterparts, with a few little tidbits on the side about their friends. There’s not much of a hint about what might lie in store in Insomniac’s Marvel game, though. The villain of the piece – a magic-obsessed thug with a penchant for stealing – and his motivations seem like a self-contained story.

It’s a nice jaunt back into the Spiderverse while we wait for Spider-Man 2 the game. When that might release is anyone’s guess. Insomniac said the PS5 game will launch sometime in fall 2023, and while Venom voice actor Tony Todd suggested a September date with commercials running in August, that was an accidental leak. Even if it were true at one point, Insomniac’s plans might have changed since Todd’s involvement with the project.

Either way, PlayStation and its studios are set to attend Summer Game Fest 2023, so we’ll probably see at least a new Spider-Man 2 trailer if nothing else.
