Marvel reveals art and new details for ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Beyond era

Check out new Spider-Man art by Pat Gleason, Sara Pichelli, Michael Dowling, and Arthur Adams.

Press Release

Today, Marvel Comics has revealed new art for the new direction for the Amazing Spider-Man announced last week. Nick Spencer will end his years-long run with issue #74 and with Amazing Spider-Man #75 Zeb Wells, Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar, and Patrick Gleason are joining forces to craft the new saga for Spidey. That issue will, of course, be an oversized milestone issue that kicks off a thrice monthly publishing schedule.

To get a taste of what is to come, Marvel is including a Spider-Man story on Free Comic Book Day on August 14.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Sider-Man editor Nick Lowe shared a few more details on the new direction for the series. “When we started building ‘Beyond’ we knew we had to pull out all the stops from the artistic side. That began with making sure Patrick Gleason was with us from the get-go as a writer AND an artist. His recent webhead covers have rocked the industry showing yet another element to the incredible career that we all saw on display during his run on Amazing Spider-Man. He quickly stepped up to be our artistic cornerstone, but we also needed to make sure that whoever else joined him were elite talents.

The series will include Gleason, Sara Pichelli, Michael Dowling, and Arthur Adams on art.

“Sara Pichelli is an absolute legend, creating some of the most impactful work of the last ten years. It’s crazy to think this will be her first time drawing Amazing Spider-Man, and she’s already blown us away with her masterful work. Michael Dowling’s work on Unfollow and other works got him hired for Black Cat, but his work there showed us that he would be an absolute superstar, and his issues are already blowing our minds. And then, to be able to land Arthur Adams as our cover artist. I mean, from his classic X-Men Annuals to today, Arthur has defined the Marvel Universe visually as much as almost anyone. So to have him here? I’m beyond excited. And wait until we reveal the rest of our all-star roster!”

Also revealed today is the fact that Zeb Wells has top billing on the series first two issues with the remaining writers working on something called the “Beyond Board” according to the solicit text. Kelly Thompson appears to be taking over with the third issue in the new Beyond era.
