The new Mary Jane Vol.2: Homecoming Digest is teen drama at its finest.  The Mary Jane series have been garnering tremendous support from fans and critics, with Vol.1: Circle of Friends making it onto Entertainment Weekly’s Must List.  Now look for that drama to continue this December as Mary Jane gets her own ongoing series, tentatively titled Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane.    

“I'll tell ya, every time I sit down to write an MJ script it's a real delight, so for Marvel to commit to an ongoing series is just about the coolest thing,” says Eisner-award-winning writer Sean McKeever.  “So now I'm back, and I get to work with Takeshi (Miyazawa) and Christina (Strain) again! They are among the best in the comic book-making business, hands down, and I'm geeked as can be to be working with them on an ongoing.”

“The folks at Marvel don't really have to publish comics about teenage drama, you know?” says McKeever.  “They're doing pretty well for themselves with all the stuff that focuses on super heroics. So it means a lot to me that they're committed to Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane as an ongoing series, let alone putting it out there at all.”

Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane will star Spider-Man’s “girlfriend,” Mary Jane Watson, and will chronicle her high school escapades and misadventures. As fans of the movies or comic series know, MJ is a big part of Spider-Man’s life.

“What you're gonna see in the first issue,” says McKeever, “is the direction I'd always intended to take after the Homecoming storyline, but since it's a new chapter in MJ's so-called life it'll be easy to dive into.”

“I'd say more about what I have planned, but, well, I don't want to spoil it for anyone who's waiting for the MJ Homecoming digest! That would just be mean.”

Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane will also be making a grand introduction to the world of comics with a strong presence in newsstands as well as being available for subscription orders. 

But before that happens, don’t forget Mary Jane Vol.2: Homecoming Digest. Homecoming can be one of the greatest times in a young girl’s life. Unfortunately for Mary Jane, it has turned into one huge disaster.  In Mary Jane Vol.2: Homecoming Digest, Mary Jane’s relationships with her boyfriend Harry and her friends are stretched to their breaking point.  Will she be able to make amends or is MJ going to Homecoming alone?

For compelling teen angst and high school romance in the mighty Marvel manner with a guest appearance or two by Spider-Man, don’t miss Mary Jane Vol.2: Homecoming Digest.  Look for Mary Jane’s ongoing title to debut in December.    

“To the fans, critics and retailers who've been with us from the beginning, I just want to give you all a big hug,” says McKeever.  “Your support means a great deal to me and the rest of Team MJ!”
