Spider-Girl Returns!

Marvel is re-launching Spider-Girl, which was scheduled to end its run with issue #100 (that shipped this week), as the Amazing Spider-Girl. Before the new Amazing Spider-Girl series launches in October, Marvel plans to issue Amazing Spider-Girl #0, a 48-page special that recaps the 100-issue history of Mayday Parker, Spider-Man's daughter.

Created by Tom DeFalco, the Spider-Girl series, which was only a mediocre sales performer by Marvel standards (issue #93 sold just over 17K), was on the verge of cancellation numerous times; but the series has an enthusiastic and dedicated fan base, which has pulled the property back from the brink time and again.

Series creator DeFalco will write the new Amazing Spider-Girl series, which Ron Frenz will illustrate. Ed McGuinness will provide a variant cover for the first issue of the new series.
