Marvel Knights Spider-Man will get a new title and a new creative team with #23.

The title will become Sensational Spider-Man just in time for the addition of the new creative team of Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and Angel Medina.

Their first arc "Feral," finds Spider-Manšs animalistic foes, including the Lizard, Man-Wolf and the Black Cat becoming more bestial than ever before.

"It's thrilling to be writing Spider-Man when so many exciting things are happening to him and the entire Marvel Universe," Aguirre-Sacasa said. "It is both challenging and exciting to be aligning Sensational Spider-Man back with the other Spider-Man titles as well as the Marvel Universe. It also helps that Angel Medina's art is nothing short of sensational."

This is Medina's first work for Marvel since leaving Spawn and becoming exclusive with the publisher.

Sensational Spider-Man #23 goes on sale on Feb. 8. Click on the thumbnails for larger images.

Astonishing X-Men writer Joss Whedon said he'll be taking a close look at the members in his next story.

"The next arc of the X-Men is so entirely internal, it's really a six-issue examination of who the people are, what makes them tick and how do you take them apart," Whedon said. "Good lord, am I having fun."

Whedon was featured as a telephone news conference staged by Marvel on Thursday to discuss Astonishing X-Men.

According to editor Mike Marts, Astonishing X-Men will ship bi-monthly from February though August (#13-16) and then the book will go monthly for the remainder of the creative crew's 12-issue run.

Asked which of the six characters he idenitfies with, Whedon replied:

"I just did an issue that really focuses on Scott and I really feel a lot of his pain. Scott and Kitty, obviously Kitty, both to me have a certain element of always feeling out of their depth and really taking everything to heart and being really buffeted by everything that goes on around them. That's a quality I'd like to shed, I'd like to be more Logan like, but why I love them is that they come through despite that.

"Especially after you read issue #14, you will understand why Scott is someone I really feel a kinship to and Kitty in a similar, but slightly different way. Kitty, I think, is at more peace with herself than he is, but she always feels a little like, 'I'm a child and this is a mutant war! This is a huge cross-over, what am I doing in it?'"
