Marvel Comics has unveiled Kaare Andrews' Foil Variant Cover for Spider-Boy #1, on sale Nov. 1.

Andrews' piece captures Spider-Man and Spider-Boy's special bond that was forged over their countless adventures together, adventures that no one but Spider-Boy remembers.

Leaping from the pages of Dan Slott and Mark Bagley's run of Spider-Man, the series will finally reveal the origin of Bailey Briggs, Peter Parker's long-lost sidekick. In addition, Spider-Boy's very own rogues gallery will be introduced, including the mad scientist behind his creation. As Spider-Boy digs into his top-secret past, he'll discover the reason why everyone in the Marvel Universe has forgotten him and if there's anything he can do to fix it;

"Spider-Man isn't supposed to have a sidekick. That's just wrong on so many levels. And that is exactly why we are going to have so much fun with this," Slott said. "Both this character, and this new titleā€š are going to break all the rules. Bailey Briggs is going to have over-the-top adventures in the Spider-Man corner of the Marvel Universe. He'll be facing off against a mix of both all-new villains and fan-favorite Spidey bad guys. The one thing we can promise you, whenever you pick up a copy of Spider-Boy, we are going to take the weirdest and wildest swings with every single story! Our goal is to get every reader to ask two questions: 'What in the hell did I just read?!' and 'When is the next one coming out?!'"


CAPTAIN MARVEL COVERS: Marvel Comics has released Marvel Cinemtic variant covers for October's Captain Marvel: Assault on Eden #1 and November's Captain Marvel #2. The covers are based on The Marvels, hitting theaters on Friday, Nov. 10.

These pieces from artists Elena Casagrande and Natacha Bustos spotlight the main cast of the upcoming film: Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel and Monica Rambeau.

Captain Marvel: Assault On Eden #1 is an epic one-shot written by Anthony Oliveira and drawn by Eleonora Carlini. A standalone tale that serves as an entry point for newer comic readers, this action-packed special sees Carol soldier up alongside Emperor Hulkling and Wiccan to save the Kree home world from a mysterious threat! And on sale in November, Captain Marvel #2 is the second installment in writer Alyssa Wong and artist Jan Bazaldua's new era/ Debuting a new costume and a new status quo, this run kicks off when a reality-devouring entity known as the Undone realizes that Captain Marvel is the only hero powerful enough to stop it from annihilating Earth. After being ambushed and trapped, Carol will need to rely on the reluctant help of a young ally who holds the key to victory.

MARVEL DEBUT: Marvel Comics has unveiled the art of Federica Mancin from Miles Morales Spider-Man #11. Mancin was the winner of Atelier Challenge in Disneyland Paris.

During the program, a class of talented mentees unleashed their creativity under the expert guidance of Marvel artists and mentors Giuseppe Camuncoli and Olivier Coipel, along with Stormbreakers artists Peach Momoko and Natacha Bustos. This quartet of Marvel talent taught the mentees all the tricks and techniques they need to bring the page to life in a way that only Marvel can do. After a series of themed challenges, including a final 24-hour challenge to draw an entire comic page, Mancin was selected as the strongest prospective mentee of the week on the basis of her work.

Mancin won her very first official Marvel assignment in person by Marvel Comics Editor-In-Chief C.B. Cebulski, and fans can see her artwork this October when she fills in for series artist Federico Vicentini in Miles Morales: Spider-Man #11. The issue of writer Cody Ziglar's run features a team-up between Spider-Man and Blade and an action-packed showdown with new villain Hightail.
