Courtesy of Marvel Comics we have a first look exclusive of Jeehyung Lee’s variant cover to Gwen Stacy #1. The new series by Christos Gage and Todd Nauck will be exploring Gwen’s life before she ever met Peter Parker. Issue #1 comes out where comics are sold on February 12, 2020.
Personally I find this cover incredibly arresting from the use of subtle blur to highlight Gwen, the interesting details in the onlookers around her, to the shine of her hair. Feast your eyes on the cover and full solicitation text below.
Listen to the latest episode of our weekly Comics podcast
The First of Gwen Stacy’s AMAZING Adventures! Gwen and Peter may not have met until AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #31, but that doesn’t mean Gwen’s life began on that page. Learn the never-before told origin of Gwen Stacy, top of her class, daughter of the Police Captain and, as her friend Harry Osborn calls her, “The Beauty Queen of Standard High.” But she’s way more that you even know! Gwen’s got a science brain, a nose for trouble and a no-quit attitude that always gets her in trouble. In the early Marvel Universe, that’s a recipe for disaster. Don’t miss Gwen, Captain Stacy, Harry and Norman Osborn, Crimemaster, Wilson Fisk, Jean DeWolff, Yuri Wantanabe and even Spider-Man!
Lee also posted a progression video of the cover on his Twitter. Check that out below.
