Spider Island Heroes for Hire by davidyardin Spider Island Heroes for Hire by davidyardin
Pencils, inks, and colours all by me.

This cover is of course after John Romita Senior's amazing Spider-Man #141 cover.

This is my first time drawing Elektra and Falcon... why they gotta have eight limbs? :laughing:

I'll post solictation info when it's released.

I was looking at my hard copy of this comic book yesterday—I dig how the lines and color conspire to make volume in everything, not just the figures.

If your all wondering why they have more arms and legs than Peter, its because the spider died and they used a artificial form of its venom thus resulting in extra limbs and changing there DNA to more spider than human while Peter's DNA is a more or less balance. Also, like marvel zombies, if they get bitten they will change and seek to infect more instead of eating them, and only peter is immune to the effects for obvious reasons. If your wondering how I know this its because I have a friend who works in Marvel comics and she sends me copies of any comic I like although I still have to pay her.

It doesn't look good... but since Misty appears in the Villains for Hire promo that was shown at SDCC, I think it is safe to say she survives the ordeal.

That composition is very similar to one where Spidey is facing the Sinister Syndicate!
I love what you did here, David! :)

Thanks. It's exactly that one. ;) Like I said in the description it's after John Romita Senior's Amazing Spider-Man #141 cover (my editor asked me to use it in the brief I was given).

I wanted to express the fact, that I don't like the whole idea behind it.... :(

(And it's just about the story. I love your covers and I can imagine the interior art will be good as well.... just not my cup of tea... storywise)

Apparently everyone goes spider-mutant in that storyline, cover characters included or not.
I wonder though, why do all these spider-mutants including old Peter himself never develop 3 pairs of legs or 2 pairs of arms and legs? It's always the convenient Goro-type 6-arms kind of style. Makes you think, doesn't it.
