Marvel has unveiled 13 spectacular variant covers to celebrate The Amazing Spider-Man’s 900th issue after 60 years, and they’re all fantastic!
This summer, The Amazing Spider-Man the series will reach its historic 900th issue, and to celebrate, wonder unveiled 13 variations of covers that are simply spectacular. Spider-Man has become a cherished Marvel character since his inception in 1962. Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the world-renowned webhead has fought countless foes to protect New York City. He’s more than just a hero in the Marvel Universe, though – he’s a pop culture icon.
The creation of Spider-Man also led to a series of new Wall Crawler-inspired Spider heroes. Characters like Silk, Miles Morales, Spider-Woman, and even Spider-Ham all branched off from the classic character to create the Spider-Verse. Of course, none of this would have happened without the series that started it all: The Amazing Spider-Man.
