COMICS: SAGA's Fiona Staples Returns To Marvel For THE ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #1 Variant

Brian K. Vaughan's Eisner Award winning Saga is beautifully illustrated by Fiona Staples, and the artist has now returned to Marvel (after a Spider-Woman short and Wolverine variant a few years ago) for a stunning Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #1 cover.

If you don't read Image Comics' Saga, you're missing out. As well as being a brilliant read, it's also one of the best looking comic books currently available, and the fact that Fiona Staples has provided a variant cover for Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man #1 should leave you nothing short of ecstatic. The cover and details on the upcoming issue can be found below...

• MILES is back in action with a new status quo and a new outlook on life!
• A BIG BIG BIG villain from PETER PARKER’s past is alive and well and about to turn New York upside down!
• The last page will have ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN fans SCREAMING!
• This issue can’t be missed!

Will they ever address what happened to the Peter/Scorpion clone? Seems kinda [frick]ed up keeping him locked away.
marvel72 - 3/6/2014, 4:51 PM
never read ultimate spider-man but i might have to read this new title.
patrat18 - 3/6/2014, 4:52 PM
Yes! I though they wouldn't make another Miles Morales comic.
P90 - 3/6/2014, 5:14 PM
Im usually a "NOT MUH RACE" when it comes to changing races etc. but the Ultimate Spiderman comics with Miles have all been pretty damn good so far.
MrDonut - 3/6/2014, 5:24 PM
I love Ultimate Spider-Man so am definitely down for this. As for who the threat from the past is, well, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 due out this year I think it'll be Norman Osborn- can't remember if he 'died' in his final fight with Peter in the Ultimate universe but, if not it'd make sense for him to go bat-shit over Miles too.

If you're not a fan of the Ultimates universe, that's understandable, but everything Ultimate Spider-Man related is gold- defo worth a read.
BIGBMH - 3/6/2014, 5:26 PM
wonder who the villain is. osborn?
staypuffed - 3/6/2014, 5:36 PM

that's tara mcpherson, tho. not fiona staples, i realize now that was misleading to post it after what i just said.
that's tara mcpherson.
if she ever did a Marvel comic, i would just die right then and there.
i would be so happy.
marvel72 - 3/6/2014, 6:21 PM
saga is the best comic book i'm currently reading.

@ MrDonut

i've heard good things about the title just never read it.
Bluntman - 3/6/2014, 6:23 PM
I'm probably going to pick this up..... But marvel should have had galactus destroy the ultimate universe and start a brand new universe from scratch could have been something great
blkchi - 3/6/2014, 6:33 PM
Great looking cover kudos to the artist
beane2099 - 3/6/2014, 6:55 PM
Miles was the only thing I liked about the Ultimate U in the end. Ultimate X Men and the Ultimates were the ones going stagnant and they [essentially] got rid of those characters with Galactus.
Demongod20 - 3/6/2014, 8:15 PM
@ P90

The thing is that Miles isn't really a Peter Parker race swap. He's just a separate character that picks up the Spider-man Moniker when Ultimate Peter Died. It's no different than Bucky replacing Steve as Cap after Steve fake died only the character just happened to be Afro-Latino.

I'm ready for a "Clone Saga" to happen to Morales. Not because I like the story or the concept but, because, I think that it would force the Proclaimers to reunite.

jimoakley666 - 3/6/2014, 10:54 PM
Nice cover. Like that drawing and colouring combo too.
manofsteel1942 - 3/7/2014, 4:18 AM
Craaaaaaaap. Quit calling him Spider-man and give him his own superhero name. Quit riding the coattails.
User1134 - 3/7/2014, 5:14 AM
Well, If You Go by Basic Marvel Formula...They'll Kill Him Off,LOL!
ManCalledSting - 3/7/2014, 6:25 AM
What else would they call him?
DaneE5R - 3/7/2014, 7:20 AM
"Craaaaaaaap. Quit calling him Spider-man and give him his own superhero name. Quit riding the coattails."

What the hell? Why? He's Spider-Man. Just the same as Wally West was The Flash, and Guy Gardner, John Stewart and Kyle Rayner have been The Green Lantern.

Her art is pretty badass.
