The world of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 is massive, and so’s the exploration of it’s art that Dark Horse has planned for next spring.
Art takes time
Presumably Dark Horse Books would’ve loved to have had “The Art of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2” in stores for the game launch. Typically that is the case, as the publisher likes to have artistic explorations hitting retail right around that subject’s launch time. We’ve seen a few delayed releases lately though, and that will hold true for the release of this very title as well.
Developed by Insomniac and exclusive to the PS5 (for now, though it’ll likely come to PC eventually), Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 teams Peter and Miles for a run through a mostly new set of villains, in a tale that brings the symbiote into Spidey’s life. And we all know what has to come after that… or should we say ‘who’?
Digging into this adventure, in terms of the looks and overall design, will be the aforementioned Dark Horse. The comic and art book company will be bringing the video game world to life on the printed page, and it’ll be doing in in April of 2024.
Peter Parker and Miles Morales return for an exciting new adventure in the critically acclaimed Marvel’s Spider-Man video game saga. As the inimitable web-heads swing, jump, and glide across Marvel’s New York, iconic villains threaten to destroy their lives, their city, and the ones they love. Now readers can explore the creation of this dynamic new entry in the Marvel’s Spider-Man video game series—from unforgettable characters, extraordinary equipment, breathtaking locales, thrilling storyboards, and more—all accompanied by insightful commentary from the game’s creative team!Dark Horse press release
