Latest 'Amazing Spider-Man' issue features Edmond

Spider-Man's latest tale is making a stop in Edmond.

There hasn't been a much action in the Marvel Comics version of Oklahoma since Thor left.   For a while, the realm of Asgard, home of Thor and the other Norse gods, resided in semi-rural (and fictionalized) Broxton, Oklahoma, but following the end of that storyline, Marvel's Oklahoma has been relatively quiet.

That ended in last week's issue of "Amazing Spider-Man," where an explosion at a chemical plant in Edmond, Oklahoma, draws Spider-Man to the city.  The chemical plant is owned by Peter Parker's company. When a worker there is injured, Spider-Man demands a new and expensive procedure be used to save the man. But what he doesn't know is that something sinister appears to be behind this miraculous cure.

The story is a lead-in to a major "Spider-Man" story called "The Clone Conspiracy."  The storyline seems set to bring back the major villain the Jackal of the previous "Spider-Man" clone storylines.  

According to the unofficial Marvel wikia, this comic marks the first Marvel Comics appearance of the Edmond Police Department and the Edmond Fire Department.

The story is written by Dan Slott and drawn by Giuseppe Camuncoli, Cam Smith, and Marte Gracia.
