Eminem is now battling Spider-Man. The rapper is featured on a variant cover of the popular comic.
"I've always been a huge Spider-Man fan since I was a kid," Eminem said. "He's always been in my top 5, so being on a cover battling Spider-Man is such a thrill and an honor."
Print copies will be limited to 5,000 for purchase and an additional 1,000 limited print run of the spotlight version of the original variant comic cover will be available for purchase starting Tuesday, November 29.
“It’s truly an honor to be able to bring Eminem and Spider-Man to fans slinging raps on this official Marvel variant cover. There is no doubt that fans lucky enough to find themselves holding one of these will possess a highly sought-after collectible,” said Keri Harris, COO of sports and entertainment agency hustl.
The cover was created by Salvador Larroca in association with hustl. and features Em on stage battling a headphone-wearing Spider-Man while Daredevil, Luke Cage, and other Marvel characters cheer them on. Earlier this year, Amazing Spider-Man #1 put Peter Parker in a new era, starting him at rock bottom according to Marvel. The Avengers and the Fantastic 4 have issues with him, and even Aunt May has beef with Spidey. His enemies Dock Ock, Tombstone and Mr. Negative are all ready to strike at any time.
