Following the success of the critically acclaimed Spider-Verse mini-series, the main inspiration for the Sony animated film starring Miles Morales (here is our review of Spider-Man A New Universe) and its sequel Spider-Geddon, Marvel Comics has revealed the future (and conclusion) of Spider-Man's multiverse adventures and partners.

Next August, the screenwriter Dan Slott will take us back to the Spider-Verse in the Edge of Spider-Verse Limited Series, created with artist Mark Bagley. Each release in this series will feature three stories featuring as many alternate versions of Spider-Man. Along with introducing new adventures from heroes like Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Gwen, and Spider-Man India, Edge of Spider-Verse will also make its debut new alternate versions of Spider-Man, including Night-Spider (under whose mask Felicia Hardy the black cat is hiding) and Hunter-Spider (aka Kraven the Hunter).

Additionally, Marvel has announced that a final event will be released at the end of the limited series will depict the epilogue of the Spider-Verse entitled The End of Spider-Verse.

"Marvel has decided to do the unthinkable, take everything to the next level and bring the comic book Spider-Verse saga to a wild ending", Slott tells the Polygon portal."It's all true. By the end of the year, we'll all be witnessing the end of the Spiderverse!".

In support of the announcement, Marvel shared the main covers of the first two issues of Edge of Spider-Versemade by Josemaria Casanovas, and the Variant cover of Edge of Spider-Verse #3 by Kris Anka. He has also released character designs for Night-Spider (also by Kris Anka) and a new character called Spider-Laird created by Martin Coccolo. Find it all in the gallery below.

We were also supposed to see the sequel to A New Universe this year, but unfortunately Spider-Man Across the Spider-Verse has been pushed back a year.
