It’s mind-blowing how many spider-man versions exist there; I can totally get lost. Thanks to this collection of Spider-Man art, not only I’ve rewatched all the movies, but I’ve also discovered the cartoon I had somehow missed, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and as an artist, I was super-amazed!
It’s like everyone’s favorite story about the guy bitten by the radioactive spider that can never end! New interpretations, characters, villains, adventures — that’s only a small part of the reasons to love this comics diversity for. To be fair, I had a certain skepticism about this and considered all doppelgangers to be just the marketing tool, squeezing out the plot till it droughts, making money on the fame of well-known characters everyone does. Now, look at me, putting together the Spider-Man art, consisting practically on 90% of the cartoon-related illustrations. That’s what I call a self-development!
You can be a loyal Tobey Maguire or Andrew Garfield fan, but as soon as you see the cute Spider-Ham, your list of favorites gets one position longer. And no, it’s not the Simpsons-related gig with Peter Porker — the character fist appeared back in 1983 comics. A pretty curious little fact. Switching to something more said: I’ve cried rivers over the death of Gwen Stacey, oh boy, that tragic moment in the picture. Again, I didn’t know about her being alive and having spider-woman superpowers in some parallel universe, what a nice surprise I must say.
I know I’ve put so many nails in the coffin of my comics-related ignorance, but it doesn’t matter when it comes to spider-man art, I’ve had a blast collecting these images. The second part of Spider-Verse won’t be out until 2022, so we have plenty of time to savour the taste of masterly-drawn Spider-Man art by a bunch of talented folks.
An extraordinary illustrator, also known as Milka. Fan of magic and unicorns, she delivers tons of inspiration with every artwork. Thrilled to see her running the fascinating wallpapers section on The Designest.
