Die-Cut covers are back with Marvel’s Spider-Woman #1

It’s been a while, but Marvel Comics is bringing back the ‘die-cut’ cover gimmick for Spider-Woman’s first issue. As they go, it’s actually pretty cool.

Cutting a cover

I’m pretty sure we haven’t seen the likes of a ‘die-cut’ cover from one of the major comic publishers in a good, long while. Back in the 90s of course, they were everywhere. Back then we had chromium, glow-in-the-dark, and almost any kind of paper-enhancement you could imagine. I think there was a Ghost Rider cover at one point that had all of them…

While some have been making a swing back to relevance, like the aforementioned chromium, we still hadn’t seen die-cut stuff. That long national nightmare is officially over now though, as Marvel is bringing a die-cut cover to market in style for Spider-Woman #1.

Maybe the most iconic version of the character, Jessica Drew’s Spider-Woman will be staring in the new book, from Karla Pacheco and Pere Pérez. And while you might be rolling your eyes, it’s actually a pretty awesome looking cover.

Now, this isn’t the standard cover, it’s a variant. But you probably knew that since Marvel doesn’t pass up the opportunity for one of those these days. Still, it’s a striking image and should be cool for fans of the character.

Launch day is coming up fast too, with Spider-Woman #1 kicking off the latest run for the hero this March the 18th.
