Marvel celebrates 60 years of Spider-Man with new variant cover slate

The Marvel U is going Spider-Man crazy, with a slew of variant covers celebrating the web-head. It’s all to mark the hero’s 60 years in comics.

60 years

No stranger to variant cover initiatives, Marvel is prepping another one. This one’s for a pretty big milestone too, as it’s to honor the 60th birthday of the publisher’s wall-crawling hero.

Spider-Man has a lot happening in 2022 already of course, as a brand new series will re-start Amazing’s numbering. But now you can add what’s looking to be a pretty neat variant cover collection to the mix too.

The new line will feature a selection of heroes and villains, mostly decked out in the classic red and blue.

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Spider-Man, and the entire Marvel Universe will join in the celebration with a stunning new series of variant covers! Debuting throughout April, the SPIDER-MAN VARIANT COVERS will adorn your favorite ongoing series and showcase Marvel’s heroes and villains suited up Spidey-style! Created by incredible artists such as Dan Jurgens, Kaare Andrews, Rahzzah, Kyle Hotz, Declan Shalvey, Pete Woods, Rod Reis, David Baldeón, Bengal, Romina Jones, and more, these exciting covers feature brand-new costume designs inspired by Marvel’s greatest icon!

So which books are on board? The slate will include:

  • Mary Jane
  • Captain Marvel 
  • Carnage
  • Iron Man
  • Emma Frost
  • Shang-Chi
  • Silk
  • Silver Surfer
  • Thor
  • Venom

That’s not all though, as Marvel says there will be “many more” joining the list. Normally I’d say that was overkill, but this is Spider-Man we’re talking about here.

Look for the festivities to begin in April, and roll from there.
