    Comic siteBleeding Coolhave confirmed that Gerard Way will write his own comic which will be based on the story of Peni Parker, a teenage girl of Japanese heritage who co-pilots a mech called SP//dr, for issue number 5. The issue will be illustrated byJake Wyatt.

    Way has said that he’s drawn inspiration from mangakaKatsuhiro Otomoand artistPaul Pope.

    I started with the work of Otomo, and drew from his books Domu and Akira, for the overall feel of everything, said Way. Being a big Paul Pope fan, I also drew from his work from THB and Batman Year 100. I started with the visual concepts and then built the story around that. I knew I wanted a little girl piloting a machine, and a psychic spider friend. I wanted to keep the aspect of the radioactive spider bite, and make it work in a new way, and that provided the glue of the concept.

    Marvel describes the premise of the comic as a futuristic city in which Spider-Man takes the shape of a government project. The project is comprised of three vital components: a pilot, a machine and a radioactive sentient spider acting as one half of the brain that makes it all work.
