Half-Man, Half-Reptile, the Lizard will take over all of Earth unless Spider-Man alone can stop him! With these words, Dr. Curt Connors, the man who would be The Lizard, ushered a new kind of villainy into Spider-Man's life. Now a widower with a son in foster care, and working at the bottom of the pharmaceutical industry, Connors is a broken, shell of a man; how long will it be before a Lizard breaks that shell?! How will it affect Peter Parker's date with Carlie Cooper?! How is THE BLACK CAT involved? Zeb Wells and Chris Bachalo reunite to bring you the next great Spider-Epic as The Lizard returns!
