Spider-Woman Variant Numbering Schematics 1-25

The variant numbering schematics begin with the original cover concept from Spider-Woman 9 that was rejected by Marvel due to creative differences with writer Marv Wolfman. Then it continues to follow variant cover and storyline concepts the Amazing Spider-Man title and begins with ASM194 when the Black Cat concept was brought over seven months later where it was developed and introduced. I wanted to follow the developed concept from ASM and create a variant cover and storyline concepts for SW. From there I started following other cover and storyline concepts from ASM and other titles. So I ended up putting them all together in Variant-Edition.com.

As far as following a numbering schematic, I decided to begin with the variant cover and storyline concept starting with ASM194. Because of the seven months gap in the publishing dates between SW9 December 1978 and ASM194 July 1979, two ASM titles may correspond to one SW title because of the bi-monthly publication between May-June 1981 (SW38) to May-June 1983 (SW50). When the Spider-Woman title ends at SW50 the numbering continues and starts following ASM242. So SW51 begins following variant cover and storyline concepts from ASM242 with the publishing date and the corresponding issue number. Occasionally other variant cover and storyline concepts from other titles may be used and the numbering will follow the publishing dates that corresponds with ASM title. Also variants from new and other titles with follow its own corresponding numbering.
