"Anyone can wear the mask" was a central message of 2018's popular animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. This message prompted many fans of the film to create their own versions of the wall-crawler, which have come to be known as "Spidersonas."
Marvel Comics announced it will feature Spidersonas beginning in this week's Spider-Verse #1. Each issue will feature three Spidersonas created by three different artists. Set to have their work featured in Spider-Verse #1 include Cotton Valent, Antonio Demico and V-0-3.
The Spider-Verse series will show Miles Morales thrown into another multiversal adventure with other spider heroes. Based on the cover, the series looks to feature appearances from Spider-Ham, Spider-Gwen, Spider-Man 2099 and more.
The first issue is written by Jed McKay and features art from Stuart Immonen, Juan Frigeri, Arthur Adams and more. The main cover for Spider-Verse #1 was illustrated by Wendell Dalit, who worked as a character designer on Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
There will also be several variant covers available for the first issue, featuring art by Patrick Brown, John Tyler Christopher and Arthur Adams. Spider-Verse #1 will be available in comic book stores and digitally on Oct. 2.
