IDW Publishing has announced that it is set to celebrate the work of industry icon Todd McFarlane this September with the release of Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man Artist’s Edition, which promises one of the most acclaimed runs in Spider-Man history like never before.
“The impact that McFarlane had on the comics industry was like a thunderbolt striking the art form, and his work continues to resonate to this day with fans the world over,” says Scott Dunbier, IDW’s Director of Special Projects and award-winning originator of the Artist’s Edition format.
Todd McFarlane’s Spider-Man Artist’s Edition will include almost 100 pages of interior art selected from 24 issues of his consequential The Amazing Spider-Man run, almost 60 pages from his record-setting Spider-Man series, and 25 covers spanning such titles as The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Marvel Age, Marvel Tales, and more. As with other Artist’s Editions, each plate is reproduced from meticulous scans of the original art.
As well as classic villains like the Green Goblin, Hobgoblin, Sandman, the Vulture, Morbius, and the Lizard and characters such as Hulk, Wolverine, and Mary Jane Watson-Parker, the Artist’s Edition also features the villainous Venom, co-created by McFarlane, including his first appearance in The Amazing Spider-Man #299!
