Eminem and Spider-Man have a rap battle on Amazing Spider-Man #1 variant cover

Hip-hop superstar and recent Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Eminem is coming back to Marvel Comics for an Amazing Spider-Man #1 variant cover which pits Eminem against Spider-Man himself in an image that pays homage to the climactic rap battle scene of Eminem’s 2002 biopic film 8 Mile, with Marvel characters like Miles Morales, Ghost-Spider, Daredevil, and Luke Cage in the audience.

“HONORED to be on the official variant of The Amazing Spider-Man (2022),” tweeted the official Eminem Twitter account (opens in new tab) on November 21, along with an announcement that the variant will go on sale Tuesday, November 22 through Eminem’s website.

The new variant is for Amazing Spider-Man #1 (Legacy #895) which was released in April and is illustrated by Salvador Larroca and Edgar Delgado.
