Silk #1 ComicsPro Variant Front Cover Dave Johnson

Cindy Moon exploded out of her bunker and into the Marvel Universe when we first learned that she had been bitten by that same radioactive spider in the first arc of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN. She then went on to save Peter Parker's life (more than once!) and traverse the Spider-verse alongside Spider-Woman. Now, as SILK, Cindy is on her own in New York City, searching for her past, defining her own future, and webbing up wrong-doers along the way! Robbie Thompson (writer from TV's Supernatural) fills this new ongoing series with his unique blend of antics and feels. Featuring stunning covers by Eisner Award winner Dave Johnson and interiors by future superstar Stacey Lee.

28 pages, full color. Rated T Cover price $3.99.

Silk #1 Interior Credits

The ComicsPRO variant of Silk #1 featured here uses a "sketch" cover by Methodist deacon the "Reverend" Dave Johnson (who also goes by the handle "Devilpig"). The same art was used on both the standard first print of Silk #1 and the second print:
