AVENGING SPIDER-MAN #11 Cover by Chris Samnee is Wonderful

Listen, we don’t have a real reason to put this up other than that we really like it, and Chris Samnee is the bee’s knees on stuff like this.

It’s from Avenging Spider-Man #11, and it’s written by Zeb Wells, with interiors by Stefano Caselli, and you’ll see it in a few months. But right now? How about that?


  1. I like it. Reminds me of Romita, Sr.

  2. The cover is simply wonderful. Chris Samnee always delivers.
    I’m really happy that Zeb Wells is coming back to Avenging Spider-Man, I dropped it since he left it.

    • Got to agree about Wells coming back. He’s one of the best Spider-Man writers out there! Plus he’s actually the real star of the show no matter which star artist is on there.

  3. Here’s to saying nice things. Nice people are awesome.

  4. Yep, looks good. And as saddened as I was by Rivera leaving DD, I think Samnee will grow into a more than suitable replacement.

  5. Very cool

  6. LOVE it!

    It’s a great cover for a story that sounds really wonderful: a Peter and Aunt May character issue.

  8. Wow, that cover makes me feel like a little kid reading a Spidey comic again. Well done (as always) Mr. Samnee.

  9. Meh un original

    • “The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”

  10. Zeb Wells wrote one of my favorite single issues Marvel put out this year with Avenging Spider-Man #5, the Spidey/Cap team-up. I think this one can be just as special.

  11. Nice.

    I’m so glad we’re seeing a steady return to the Ditko Spider-eyes.

  12. ahh I love old fashioned non-shiny comic art. It was before my time, so it’s not nostalgia, just refreshing and very cool.

  13. I dig this Ditko style too, Samnee is good on DD as well and this is just a classic style cover, love how the ceiling or Spidey’s background color fades into the walls.

  14. Fantastic cover. Thought it was Marcos Martin there for a second…

  15. i’ll buy this one and hang it up my wall.

  16. Chris Samnee is awesome. Cool guy too.

  17. Great illustration. I was all smiles until I saw the empty seat and place mat for Uncle Ben…

  18. Wheatcakes!

  19. Agree on the JR SR comparison and I also agree with the comment about the empty place mat. It’s just a very Norman Rockwell vibe to it. And no other words than the title to clutter the art.
