Marvel’s Weapon VIII Battles Wolverine in Edge of Spider-Verse #1 First Look

Marvel Comics has released a first-look preview for Edge of Spider-Verse #1, which swings into comic shops this coming February.

Edge of Spider-Verse #1 teams writers Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing with artist Travel Foreman for a story starring Marvel‘s newest Spider-Man, Weapon VIII. In an alternate reality, Weapon VIII is tasked with hunting down Weapon X, aka Wolverine. Meanwhile, writer Nilah Magruder and artist Eric Gapstur join forces for a story marking the return of Spider-Byte. At this time, Marvel has shared four uncolored, unlettered preview pages — two from each story. The new Edge of Spider-Verse series’ debut issue features a main cover by Chad Hardin, as well as a Foil Variant Cover by Mahmud Asrar.

Edge of Spider-Verse is back

Next year’s Edge of Spider-Verse #1 kicks off an all-new four-issue limited series. A synopsis reads as follows: “The now perennial Spider-Hit is back as we start the build to the biggest Spider-Versal story we’ve EVER DONE! We all know who Weapon X is, but WHO IS WEAPON VIII?! In their universe, when Weapon X escapes from his facility, they call on their greatest previous success to get him back. SPIDER-BYTE RETURNS! You may not have realized that the digital avatar Spider-Character who made her big screen debut in Across the Spider-Verse came from the comics first! She’s back in comics now and you don’t want to miss her!”

Edge of Spider-Verse originally launched as a five-issue limited series in 2014. Spinning out of the larger “Spider-Verse” event, the anthology-style book introduced new heroes from across the Marvel multiverse — including the now-iconic Spider-Gwen. The title returned for a second five-issue series 2022, followed by a four-issue one earlier this year. Marvel promises that next year’s iteration will “unleash” the potential of the Spider-Verse “in full.”

Edge of Spider-Verse #1 goes on sale February 21, 2024 from Marvel Comics.
