Marvel Comics Artist Greg Land Pays Homage To Gwen Stacy SPIDER-GWEN: GWENVERSE Launch Next Year
Gwen Stacy is returning in an all-new series titled Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse. In that, Ghost-Spider will travel through time encountering different versions of herself, and Greg Land's covers are...amazing!
Yesterday, Marvel Comics announced that Gwen Stacy, a.k.a. Ghost Spider, will return in her own series next February. Written by Tim Seeley with art by Jodi Nishijima, Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse will follow the hero on a journey through alternate realities where she'll meet different versions of herself.
When Gwen Stacy was bitten by a radioactive spider, she gained arachnid-like superpowers and started a crimefighting career as Spider-Woman (or, as she’s affectionately known to her peers, Ghost-Spider). But what would have happened if she had picked up the enchanted hammer, Mjolnir? Or if she received the Super-Soldier Serum? Or built a high-tech suit of armor?
Those are questions this series promises to answer, and Marvel Comics has now revealed a series of gorgeous variant covers for the limited series by superstar artist Greg Land.
Paying homage to his now-classic Edge of Spider-Verse #2 cover (Spider-Gwen's first appearance) we see the hero in various costumes, including Spider-Man's. Oh, and if you're wondering what the deal with the cape is, that's Nightbird, Gwen's identity in the Heroes Reborn: Night-Gwen one-shot. We also see her suited up as Wolverine, Spider-Gwen, and her original 616 counterpart.
Spider-Gwen: Gwenverse #1 is set to be released on February 9. Check out Land's covers below:
