AMAZING FANTASY #1000 Variant Cover Sees Artist J. Scott Campbell Deliver His Amazing Take On Spider-Man
Marvel Comics has revealed a spectacular new variant cover for Amazing Fantasy #1000 that sees legendary artist J. Scott Campbell put his own unique spin on Spider-Man for his 60th anniversary year...
This August, Marvel Comics will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Spider-Man in the pages of Amazing Fantasy #1000. The giant-sized one-shot will be a collection of stories exploring the past, present and future of Amazing Spider-Man storytelling brought to life by some of the industry’s top creators.
Among them will be names such as Neil Gaiman, Jim Cheung, Michael Cho, and Jonathan Hickman.
It's fair to say no Spidey celebration would be complete without the work of acclaimed Spider-Man artist, J. Scott Campbell. The top-selling artist behind some of the most iconic Amazing Spider-Man covers in Marvel history has crafted a gorgeous new variant cover, and you can check it out below.
However, Spidey won't be the only Marvel hero celebrating a milestone. Campbell’s Amazing Fantasy #1000 variant cover will be the latest in his series of stunning "Anniversary Variant Covers" that mark the anniversary of some of Marvel’s greatest characters. Next month, Marvel Comics will also release Cambell's variant covers featuring the iconic Thor and Hulk for their respective anniversaries.
"It’s a thrill and an honor to create cover art celebrating the 60th anniversary of characters that have become so iconic and ingrained in our culture," Campbell says in a statement. "I really wanted to make images that would have a visual bridge from the pulpy 4 color origins of these monumental heroes to the modern day slick coloring and production we are now all familiar with."
We'll hopefully have more artwork to share with you soon, but Amazing Fantasy #1000 is shaping up to be a fun ride. Marvel Comics will also release Amazing Spider-Man #800 later this summer.
