Marvel Reveals “Spider-Geddon” #1 Variant Covers

Back in late June, I shared the Press Release about an upcoming Marvel Comics series called “Spider-Geddon” you can read that HERE if you like, but if you are pressed for time, the brief summary in an email I just received lined it out like this…

“Featuring new villains and old villains, shocking deaths and shocking returns, and all the Spider characters you can fit into one larger-than-life tale, this is a Marvel Spider-Event not to be missed! Don’t miss the opportunity to dive into this fresh new adventure October 10th, when SPIDER-GEDDON #1 hits comic shops!”

This post will showcase any of the first issue variant covers that I recieve along with a brief part of those emails since I anticipate that the above will likely be repeated as a standard across any of the messages. Since time will not permit a brand-new post per cover, I will edit accordingly and make sure the tags are on point for easier reference. Here we go.

September 5, 2018: REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE! Marvel is excited to celebrate SPIDER-GEDDON #1 from Christos Gage and Jorge Molina with a new spider-punk variant cover from superstar artist Wil Sliney, with colors by Frankie D’Armata!

Attached to the message was this crushing image of The Incredible Hulk. The art is by Ron Garney and Richard Isanove. Since they love to send several images out for this kind of announcement, as they come in I will edit this single post.
