Miles Morales Co-Creator Shares Her Contribution to Into the Spider-Verse

Comic book artist Sara Pichelli, co-creator of the Miles Morales Spider-Man, revealed her artistic contribution to the hit animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Throughout the movie, the various different Spider heroes have their respective origins told with personalized comic book covers as framing devices. Towards the end of the film Miles finally earns one of his own, which was drawn by Pichelli herself.

"Thanks for all the congrats and the love shared after you watched Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," Pichelli said in the image's caption. "Here is the image I created for the movie, it was amazing seeing this on the big screen."

The image, which certainly wouldn't look out of place as a real-life Marvel cover, features a vivid illustration of Miles swinging through New York City, sporting his brand-new street art-themed suit and trademark Air Jordans.

Pichelli created the character of Miles alongside writer Brian Michael Bendis (who served as a consultant and executive producer for Into the Spider-Verse), setting the stage for the young Brooklynite's debut as the new Spider-Man in 2011's Ultimate Fallout #4.

Miles took up the Spidey mantle in Marvel's Earth-1610 universe following the death of that reality's version of Peter Parker in 2011's Ultimate Spider-Man #160. Miles has since made a name for himself as a mainstream figure in Marvel comic books and, of course, ultimately made the leap to the big screen in Into the Spider-Verse.
