The Evolution Of the Spider-Verse Continues In ‘Edge Of Spider-Verse’ #5
by Tony Thornley
Edge of Spider-Verse has brought us some of the wildest Spider-Variants in Marvel’s history. In the final issue of the miniseries, out October 5th, we’ll see some of the biggest debuts yet.
Each other issue of the series so far has featured at least one return of a fan-favorite Spider-Hero among its stories. In the conclusion of the miniseries, all three stories are debuts, which promises to make it the biggest yet. It all comes down to this as it leads into October’s Spider-Man #1 from Dan Slott & Mark Bagley.
The conclusion features:
· Web-Weaver, a not-so-mild mannered fashion designer at Van Dyne gets spider-powers and shows us a very different kind of Spider-Slayer in a story by Steve Foxe and Kei Zama. See him strut the runway in front of his fellow Spiders in a variant cover by Kris Anka, the amazing artist behind Web-Weaver’s fabulous design!
· Imagine a world where Sergei Kravinoff got Spider-Powers. Meet Hunter-Spider, the most hardcore Spider yet, in a riveting tale by Dan Slott, J. M. DeMatteis, and Bob McLeod! Check out his fearsome design by superstar artist Mark Bagley in a special variant cover!
· Phil Lord, the filmmaker behind the Spider-Verse movies, teams up with artist David Lopez to create a new Spider that you have to see to believe… Fans will have to wait until the issue goes on sale to meet Syllie Spider, a one-of-a-kind new Marvel character who will also get the spotlight on a classified SPOILER VARIANT COVER by Lopez!
Check out the covers, as well as interior pages from the issue, and be sure to pick up Edge of Spider-Verse #5 when it debuts on October 5th!
