A reboot of classic ‘70s comic book series, Marvel Team-Up, will be making its debut this year. In the first new installment of the series Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man will be joining forces with one prominent Black writer at the helm—Eve Ewing.
The artist and writer is no stranger to the comic book world or Marvel. Ewing is also the mind behind Marvel’s Ironheart series featuring Riri Williams, a protégé of Ironman. She has also worked on an issue of the Ms. Marvel series, which is due in February.
The Chicago-native and University of Chicago professor made the announcement about Marvel Team-Up last week on Twitter.

We’ll have to wait and see what Ms. Marvel and Spider-Man will get into, but Ewing gave a few hints at what we can expect.
“My goal with the story is to have maximum fun with two characters that are both really sweet and really cool people who are fan favorites,” she said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. “And put them both in some delightful awkward and uncomfortable situations where they have to stretch to the limits of their abilities.”
We can expect to see the shenanigans they get into this April.
