Milo Manara Marvel comic covers

There has been a lot of news recently about Milo Manaro’s cover for Spider-Woman #1 which is out in November. Unfortunately the cover is a 1/50 variant made just for the collectors and completists. With most comic shops being small they wont order 50 copies of Spider-Woman #1 making this cover massively rare.

The recent mixed views on his Spider-Woman cover have meant he is now in even more famous and his work higher demand than before. His variant covers have now gone anything up to 30 times their value last month.

Manara is a 69 year old Italian comic artist and got a lot of notoriety when he worked with Neil Gaiman in 2004 on the award winning The Sandman: Endless Nights. Since then he has done a whole host of awesome covers for Marvel.

One of the best things about his covers is his take on the human form. He doesn’t exaggerate proportions like a lot of comic artists to make his characters more interesting. His typical form will show realistic human forms and proportions but show them in a very dynamic frame.

A lot of his past work in Italy has been making adult themed comics and and it has been part of his signature art style.

He has been working with Marvel on covers for years and even worked on one for Guardians of the Galaxy in 2008 and since has drawn some very popular covers.

One of his biggest projects with Marvel was X-Women which was a one shot written by Chris Claremont in 2010 in which Manara drew the whole comic.

Manara has two other covers due out this year for Thor an Axis which but due to scheduling they have been pushed back and he will hopefully be working with Marvel on many more covers in the future.
