Originally appearing in “Amazing Fantasy” as the high school hero Arana and eventually starring in her own 12-issue miniseries, Anya currently appears in the pages of the “Young Allies” ongoing series alongside her friend and classmate Rikki Barnes. The first issue of that title featured Anya wearing the costume previously worn by one-time Spider-Woman Julia Carpenter. Fans discovered the reason for this during the recent “Amazing Spider-Man” arc “Grim Hunt,” which officially debuted Anya as Spider-Girl. As announced during Marvel’s Spider-Man-centric panel at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Spider-Man’s “Brand New Day” ends this October, but he and his friends hits the Big Time in November, and the upcoming “Spider-Girl” spins directly out of this new status-quo for Marvel’s Spider-family of titles.
