Closing out the month on October 26th the wickedly curious can get a glimpse at the next five upcoming titles in a Halloween Sampler.

“October has been deemed “Scottober” at comiXology Originals,” says Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content. “With the arrival of We Have Demons featuring widescreen action and the kinds of jaw dropping storytelling twists that have made Snyder and Capullo the bestselling creator duo of the last 25 years, followed by Clear Snyder’s first noir thriller and Manapul’s first ever creator-owned book, which is a dazzling, sci-fi thrill ride into a strange dystopian future, and in the lead up to the most terrifying night of the year, Snyder and Francavilla—two modern masters of horror—collaborate for the first time with Night of The Ghoul, a bold and bloody reimagining of monsters that celebrates classic creature features.”

Marvel Reveals “Spider-Geddon” #1 Variant Covers

Back in late June, I shared the Press Release about an upcoming Marvel Comics series called “Spider-Geddon” you can read that HERE if you like, but if you are pressed for time, the brief summary in an email I just received lined it out like this…

“Featuring new villains and old villains, shocking deaths and shocking returns, and all the Spider characters you can fit into one larger-than-life tale, this is a Marvel Spider-Event not to be missed! Don’t miss the opportunity to dive into this fresh new adventure October 10th, when SPIDER-GEDDON #1 hits comic shops!”

This post will showcase any of the first issue variant covers that I recieve along with a brief part of those emails since I anticipate that the above will likely be repeated as a standard across any of the messages. Since time will not permit a brand-new post per cover, I will edit accordingly and make sure the tags are on point for easier reference. Here we go.

September 5, 2018: REVENGE OF THE SPIDER-VERSE! Marvel is excited to celebrate SPIDER-GEDDON #1 from Christos Gage and Jorge Molina with a new spider-punk variant cover from superstar artist Wil Sliney, with colors by Frankie D’Armata!
