Fresh off the Clone Conspiracy event, Marvel Comics has dropped a first look at the new Scarlet Spider run.

The series, titled Ben Reilly: The Scarlet Spider, picks up with Ben after he went on the run after Clone Conspiracy. It comes from the New York Times bestselling creative team of Peter David (Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2099) and Mark Bagley (Ultimate Spider-Man, All-New X-Men), and in a sea of Spider-books, it should make for a nice throwback. There’s also the question of whether or not he’ll be a hero or a villain — or something in-between?

Here’s an excerpt from the official description:

Ben Reilly has returned with a new lease on life. Not as Peter Parker’s clone – but as his own man. Will suiting up once more as the Scarlet Spider be enough to outrun his personal demons? All while being able to stay one step ahead of the man hunting him – Kaine Parker – the former Scarlet Spider?!
