Fiona Staples Covers ‘Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man’ #1 In First Marvel Work

Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man #1 Fiona Staples Variant Cover
“Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man” #1 variant cover by Fiona Staples

On sale in May, Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #1 relaunches the saga of its titular superhero in high style, featuring a a particularly cool variant cover by Fiona Staples that you’re seeing here for the first time. The co-creator of Image Comics’ very popular and much acclaimed Saga, Staples is an artist whose routinely gorgeous covers for DC Comics, WildStorm, Archie IDW and Dark Horse have earned her numerous award nominations, but not until now has the artist’s work graced the cover of a Marvel Comics publication.

The piece depicts Miles in an exciting, Spidey-specific action shot I don’t think I’ve ever seen before, but what I like most about this cover is how well Staples’ fascination with amorphous, almost abstract digital backgrounds works so well at expressing the energy of New York at night. Indeed, the city should consider using this cover in its tourist promotional literature.

Here’s Marvel’s hype copy for Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man #1, along with the “standard” cover by series artist Dave Marquez:
