I was sad to see Marvel's Ultimate line of comic books perish in last summer's "Secret Wars" but the fact that Miles made it on one of Reed Richards life boats gave me hope for the future. That hope is now realized as Miles Morales, The Ultimate Spider-Man, gets his own ongoing series in "Spider-Man" #1. Sure, I know he's been kicking around for a few months in the not-so-post "Secret Wars" Avengers book by Mark Waid & Adam Kubert but I've missed Miles as the star. Check out the preview pages of the upcoming issue below the Marvel's official words on the comic:

Miles Morales Comes to the Marvel Universe in SPIDER-MAN #1!

New York, NY—January 11th, 2016 — Welcome to the Marvel Universe Miles Morales, hope you survive the experience! That’s right, he’s here – and the Marvel Universe will never be the same again. Today, Marvel proudly presents your look inside SPIDER-MAN #1 – the highly anticipated new series from blockbuster Miles Morales co-creators Brian Michael Bendis and Sara Pichelli! Sure, he’s been doing the super hero thing for a while now, but following the events of Secret Wars, Miles finds himself a full-fledged member of the Marvel  U. Swinging next to Iron Man, Captain America and Thor as a member of the Avengers and patrolling the Big Apple’s rooftops as NYC’s own Spider-Man! But it’s not all fun and games. A lot has transpired in the eight months since Secret Wars and an entire new universe awaits him – friend and foe alike. Plus, his grades are in the toilet. The adventure begins this February in the can’t-miss SPIDER-MAN #1!
