Ultimate Spider-Man 100 Covers

100 unique covers, all proceeds go to charity.

A few months back Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man 100 hit the shelves of comic book stores all over, celebrating 100 continuous issues with the same creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley. To celebrate, Marvel sent out 100 blank Ultimate Spider-Man covers to a vast array of comic book artists, each one given the task of creating their own unique cover to complete the milestone.

Well, Marvel is now planning to auction off all 100 covers at some upcoming comic conventions, and on eBay, with all proceeds going towards The Hero Initiative, a charity that helps comic book creators in need.



Some of these covers are simply amazing and will most likely sell for prices I can't even compute. My favourites have to be Clayton Crain's, Ron Garney's, Todd McFarlane's, and Humberto Ramos'. I also find it quite amusing that Guillermo Del Toro (director of Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth) did a cover.

Check out all 100 covers HERE.

Cheers.

Wow, somebody else that knows all about the comic book industry...I think you're my hero! ^_^ You will be happy to know that I am hell bent on buying a cover on ebay...willing to spend my savings and sell everything I own except the clothes on my back and pair of clean underwear....mwhahah.

I too am tempted to dish out some hard-earned cash on one of these covers. I think I'll have to pass though, those prices are just too rich for my blood.

Thanks for the comment.
