Marvel’s Spider-Verse event was too big to only be in Amazing Spider-Man, and even their other series and mini-series weren’t enough to cover all the Spiders they wanted to. So, they’re releasing an anthology special in November called, simply, Spider-Verse #1, with a second issue planned for December. The anthology will feature some Spiders we’ve seen before returning like Mangaverse Spidey by Skottie Young and Jake Parker, plus new Spiders like Steampunk Spider-Woman from the writer of Silk’s ongoing series Robbie Thompson and a new 11 year-old girl Spider written and drawn by Katie Cook.

Of course, you can’t spell “event” without “variant covers” (don’t check, just trust us), so this one has a new one by artist Nick Bradshaw. The cover features a plethora of Spiders - we’ll let you have the fun of seeing if you can name them all before we spoil it.

The original solicitation for Spider-Verse #1 follows.
