Superhero comic fans love alternate universes and the doppelgangers that reside within, which is part of the reason that Dan Slott and Olivier Coipel's "Spider-Verse" was such a hit. To celebrate the many incarnations of the webhead, Mondo have just released two limited edition prints by DKNG, along with a set of Spider-Verse themed enamel pins by Tom Whalen featuring Peter, Miles and Gwen.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Juri Han versus Spider-Gwen, Snorlax, Misty Knight, Carrie Kelly, and more!
It’s been a few months since Marvel first announced that Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man would be shuttered in favor of a new “back to basics” series ostensibly tied to Spider-Man Homecoming. No new details have been released, but some reported merchandising concepts may reveal fan-favorites “Spider-Gwen” and the Miles Morales Spider-Man taking part.
Ahead of Brazil's Comic Con Experience event in Sao Paulo, Iron Studios and the convention have revealed one of the official posters for the event. The poster, by Rafael Albuquerque, features Spider-Man and Spider-Gwen going up against two of the biggest Spider-foes, Venom and Carnage, on the Brooklyn Bridge. Ordinarily this would be a cool print in and of itself, but it's also providing the inspiration for Iron Studios' next statue series.
Every month, comic publishers release their solicitation announcements to provide information to readers and retailers on comics that are coming out in three months’ time, but there’s so much information dropped at once that a lot can slip through the cracks.
This month, in Marvel's January solicitations, it's all about the big returns, with some fan favorite heroes and villains showing up, a critically acclaimed character getting a second chance, and love in the air in the Spider-Verse.
Our ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent. This week's selection of the best cosplay ever includes Jack Sparrow, Zapp Brannigan, Sailor Pluto, Eleven from Stranger Things, and more.

This weekend, Her Universe is unveiling a new collection of Marvel-inspired clothes at New York Comic Con, featuring dresses and jackets based on some of the company's most beloved female heroes, including Gwen, Peggy, Nat, and Carol. The collection will also be available at select Hot Topics and the Hot Topic web site.
Following the success for Kotobukiya's Avengers and X-Men ArtFX+ lines, the company turned its eye towards Spider-Man for the next collection of Marvel statues. Unlike those other waves though, the Spider-Man collection is a mix of heroes and villains in the family, provided they're directly Spider-related. You won't see the Green Goblin make an appearance (though a Sinister Six set would be intriguing), but you will find Venom and Carnage, both of whom spun out of Spider-Man's own symbiote connection.
More importantly, you'll also find alternate universe Spider-heroes like Miles Morales and today's reveal, Spider-Gwen. Actually known as Spider-Woman in her own universe, Gwen gets bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Peter, taking up the mantle when things go south and the world needs a hero. Her debut in Spider-Verse was a highlight, and now collectors are seeing the benefit of her awesomeness.
Jessica Drew was created as the first Spider-Woman in the '70s, partly to ensure that Marvel Comics had the legal rights to the name, but over the decades she has become one of the premier female characters for the publisher, in part thanks to her reinvention as part of Brian Michael Bendis’ New Avengers.
Yet Jessica hasn’t been the only hero to call herself Spider-Woman, and today we look back at the other women to carry the name.
