Browsing comic books is a great source of design inspiration, from character design to landscape concepts. Following on from our first showcase focusing solely on comic book inspiration – From Pencil To Paper, Inspiring Comic Book Art and not longer after I followed on focusing on two comic book artists with a guest post on Abduzeedo – Incredible Illustrations by Mitch & Elizabeth.







Today we focus on Marvel Comic’s most popular hero, Spiderman showcasing some extremely talented art work. A few facts about Spiderman:

Spider-Man is a fictional Marvel Comics superhero. The character was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Steve Ditko. He first appeared in Amazing Fantasy #15 (Aug. 1962). Lee and Ditko conceived of the character as an orphan being raised by his Aunt May and Uncle Ben, and as a teenager, having to deal with the normal struggles of adolescence in addition to those of a costumed crime fighter.

Spider-Man’s creators gave him super strength and agility, the ability to cling to most surfaces, shoot spider-webs using devices of his own invention which he called “web-shooters”, and react to danger quickly with his “spider-sense”, enabling him to combat his foes.. –Wikipedia

Each week I will be featuring a different Super Hero taken from the DC and Marvel series.
