Last week, our friends at Titan Books sent over Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - The Art of the Movie, an amazing collection of concept art, production designs and images from Sony's forthcoming Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. At first I was reluctant to crack the thing open - I haven't seen Spider-Verse yet, and the NDA they had me sign before sending the book my way strongly suggested that it'd be filled with spoilers.
Eventually, though, the rock-solid sense of self control I have come to be known for kicked in: I unwrapped that bad boy and spent a good hour gawking at its pages. I am confident that a few of Spider-Verse's bigger moments were spoiled for me in the process, but what can I say? Worth it.
A few days later, Titan asked if we'd be interested in sharing some exclusive images from their latest release with you, the gentle BMD readers of the world, and I eagerly jumped at the opportunity. The work that's been done on this film absolutely deserves to be poured over, and any opportunity we have to facilitate that is one I wanna take.
So, here they are, in no particular order:
I see you can pick up Ramin Zahed's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse - The Art of the Movie on Amazon for just over $25 right now, and I highly recommend it to anyone who's into concept art, Spider-Man, superheroes, or exceptionally pretty pictures. It's probably a bit too big to work as a stocking stuffer (I don't know how big your stockings are and I'm not here to judge), but it'll deliver the goods just as well wrapped up under a tree.
Stay tuned for more from Titan Books. These folks know what they're doing.
