The Spider-Verse Expands With Spectacular Spider-Boy

Don't let a man do a boy's job!

There’s a lot of spider-people out there thanks to the concept of the Spider-Verse. But the vast majority tend to be adults or young adults. Now, we recently got introduced to Spider-Boy in the sold-out Spider-Man #7 by Dan Slott and Mark Bagley. But fret not if you missed the crazy popular issue, since it’s getting a second printing next month with a variant cover illustrated by Luciano Vecchio!

Who is Spider-Boy, you ask? Here’s what Dan Slott had to say:

“I can’t wait for people to meet Spider-Boy, and the unique role he’s going to play in both Spider-Man’s world and the Marvel Universe,” Slott said. “I grew up reading Spider-Man comics. He’s my favorite character in all of fiction. All I ever wanted to do was tell stories with THIS cast, and it’s been the coolest thing ever to co-create some of the characters who populate it. And this kid, this Spider-Boy, is THE one I’m most psyched about!”

Be sure and check out the sweet artwork below. And stay tuned to The Workprint for all more Marvel-ous stories.

Josh Speer enjoys all sorts of things, but he grew up reading comic books. Stories of wonder and whimsy delight him, as do underdogs and anti-heroes. While admittedly a fan of many Marvel and DC characters (thwip thwip), of late he reads more independent comics. Big fan of Image, Dark Horse, IDW and lately even some Aftershock. Loves stories that are quirky, weird and which feature stunning artwork. Completely shocked that Marvel Netflix still exists on Disney+. Enjoys talking about comic books without getting lost in the minutiae, and focuses most on character relationships and development.
