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!

PiercingMetal Goes To Special Edition: NYC 2014 – Day 1 Pt. 1

For the next few posts I’ll be presenting my findings from the brand new convention known as the “Special Edition NYC” and for those who have never heard of it, I guess the best way to sum it up is to say that its a smaller scaled NY Comic Con and one that is specifically focused on the comic book creators, their companies and retailers. This weekends event would also be the first go round of this convention and much like the Comic Con would be held at the spacious Javits Center, but in its North Wing.  As you see by the photo below I had secured the proper Press Credentials and would be able to explore the event as a member of the media.  As I have done with numerous NY Comic Con postings, our readers can count on plenty of photographs and thoughts that bring them into the happening with us.  Let’s get to work.

The Official Media Pass for Special Edition NYC

The first Cosplayer that I encountered was this superb Batman Beyond fella.  I gladly included him in the coverage and even began to load up the Official PiercingMetal Instagram with images from this point on.
