In September 1970, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby -- the two guys who built the Marvel Universe -- closed out their run of 102 consecutive regular issues of Fantastic Four. That's a standard of consistency that has stood at Marvel ever since ­ until December, when Marvel publishes Ultimate Spider-Man #103, the record-breaking comic featuring the union of writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Mark Bagley. Milestones like this demand the red-carpet treatment, and Bendis and Bagley are getting it in this special issue of Marvel Spotlight. Covering these two singular creators and their careers at Marvel ­ including Bendis' work on New Avengers, Daredevil and Alias, plus his Icon title Powers. And Bagley is a Marvel veteran of long standing, so Marvel Spotlight will talk about his varied career as an artist on Amazing Spider-Man, New Warriors and Thunderbolts!
