Edge of Spider-Verse Covers and First Look Give a Spider Hero a New Suit

0

A popular Spider-Verse hero is getting a new costume in Marvel’s Edge of Spider-Verse an event. The limited series features writer Dan Slott’s return to the Spider-Man family, after writing web-slinger stories for a decade. Each number of Edge of Spider-Verse contains several stories of familiar and new Spider-Man heroes from longtime Spider-Man creators and rising stars. Slott’s contributions will help lay the groundwork for a new event later this year that promises to bring the Spider-Verse to an end, hence the name: End of the spider verse. In the meantime, the covers and the first look at Edge of Spider-Verse #1 reveals a new costume for Araña.

Artist Humberto Ramos designs Araña’s new costume which is in a story by writer Alex Segura and artist Caio Majado. Araña is also getting a new status quo to go along with the costume upgrade. Created by Joe Quesada, Fiona Avery and Mark Brooks, Anya Corazon debuted in 2004 amazing fantasy #1. She was one of the main actors in Marvel’s Spiderman animated series on Disney XD and was voiced by Melanie Minichino.

Other stores at Edge of Spider-Verse #1 include Dan Slott and Martin Coccolo introducing Spider-Laird, a new hero from the 18th century Scottish Highlands; the spider woman creative team of Karla Pacheco and Pere Perez reunited for a prehistoric tale of Spider-Rex; and Dustin Weaver and DJ Bryant’s haunting tale featuring Spider-Man Noir, one of the stars of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Versevoiced by Nicolas Cage.

“Marvel decided to do the unthinkable, go big, and bring the Spider-Verse comic book saga to fruition,” Slott previously shared with Polygon. “Yes, it is. Later this year, we will all witness THE END OF THE SPIDER-WORM!”

When asked if End of the spider verse really is the end of the Spider-Verse, Slott couldn’t help but happily poke fun at how death is never the end in the comic book world. “If you ask me, that’s madness,” Slott enthused. “Why would they do that? WHY? They could have milked this cash cow spider for decades. That said, if you want to do it, going all out in a blaze of glory is definitely the way to go!”
