In anticipation of the upcoming new series, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel Comics has released a series of variant covers running across many of it’s top series by some of the best artists the industry has known. I personally want mini-posters of each and every one of these to have tastefully displayed in my living quarters. Wow.
“Both the Gwen Stacy Variant Program and this month’s Venomized Variant Program were such runaway successes, we couldn’t help but try to top ourselves,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “And with Chip Zdarsky and Adam Kubert’s new Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man book on the horizon, the timing couldn’t have been better to put the spotlight on fan-favorite Mary Jane Watson.”
What if Mary Jane had been awarded the Eye of Agamotto to become the new Dr. Strange? What if she had taken up the one-woman war on crime as the Punisher? Or became infused with gamma radiation to become the new Incredible Hulk? Well, wonder no longer!
In order to whet your appetite and get you ready for your pull-lists or hunting days, here’s the list of images, issues and artists of what’s been revealed thus far.
