Normally we don’t run more than one Marvel PR in a day — and they send out about 38 each and every day — but when we saw that Joe Quesada had done a variant billed as the “No dry eye in the house” variant for The Death of Spider-Man storyline just now wrapping up in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN…well…we had to share. Because we like everyone to blubber in the afternoon. It’s good for you.
There’s a full color cry and a sketch cry.
Death of Spider-Man, the story that everyone from ABC to MTV and FOX News are talking about, reaches its stunning conclusion this June and, to commemorate this momentous issue, superstar Joe Quesada illustrates an all-new variant cover! This powerful piece, from Marvel’s Chief Creative Officer, arrives in two different versions—the full color Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160 Quesada Variant and the raw, penciled version for Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160 Quesada Sketch Variant.
It’s the biggest story in Ultimate Comics history—and it all ends in Ultimate Spider-Man #160. No fan can miss out on the story that’ll have fans around the world talking for years!
While ofttimes PR is rife with hyperbole, after the ongoing “One More Day” argument going on in the Beat comments section, the phrase “the story that’ll have fans around the world talking for years” seems more descriptive than wishful thinking.
