Sideshow and Marvel unveil a new line of Spider-Verse statues, in collaboration with artist Mark Brooks. As Marvel's group of web-slinging heroes continues to expand, Sideshow Collectibles brings fans closer to the action and excitement of the comics and films with three new lifelike figures. The company's already teamed up with the House of Ideas for killer versions of the Guardians of the Galaxy team and Iron Man among others, in addition to sculpting several crisp scale models of Spider-Man.
When trouble rears its ugly head in the Spider-Verse, though, Peter Parker must turn to his fellow spider-heroes for a little help. The latest Spider-Verse additions will bring the wall-crawler some much-needed backup.
Sideshow just unraveled their latest web-slinger collaboration with Marvel, in concert with cover artist Mark Brooks (The Amazing Spider-Man) for their Artist Series Spider-Verse Collection. The new line, which is now available to preview, shows off beautiful renditions of Silk (Cindy Moon), Spider-Gwen (Earth-65’s version of Gwen Stacy), as well as a sneak peek at the young man who started it all, Spider-Man. Fans looking to pick up one of these striking pieces will have to sit on their wallets until New York Comic Con when the company displays them at booth #1912. Check out the preview below:
Sideshow’s most recent offerings for NYCC feature two of the newest and most beloved additions to the Spider-Verse. Cindy Moon first arrived in The Amazing Spider-Man vol. 3 #1 (2014), thanks to Spider writer Dan Slott and artist Humberto Ramos. Not long after, Marvel's alternative version of Gwen Stacy debuted in Spider-Gwen #1 (2015), thanks to scribe Jason Latour and artist Robbi Rodriguez. Both comic book champions and their precursor are depicted with fluid form and a tight 1:5 scale, catching the twinkle in Spider-Gwen’s eye and the determination in Silk’s stance.
Recently, Sideshow also teamed with Marvel's Disney label-mate, Lucasfilm, to create a stunning one-sixth scale Obi-Wan Kenobi, released at San Diego Comic-Con and a roguish Han Solo. Much like the company’s Star Wars offerings, Sideshow's Marvel characters embody the next generation of super-powered women, ones that caught fire with modern readers and many old-school comic fans alike.
From the initial glimpses, Gwen and Cindy (and forthcoming Peter) retain the skillful lines and comic book realism of Mark Brooks' distinctive artwork, as well as the sharp renderings Sideshow Collectibles is known for. These sculptures could easily become a must-have for super-fans of the Spider-Verse, as well as collectors of superhero memorabilia and comic book art.
