Spider-Woman 1 Color Variant

This was the very first comic book I bought at a local grocery store. This cover was amazing I thought back then and it still is amazing. I became a Joe Sinnott fan immediately. I think this is the cover that defined Spider-Woman in the Marvel universe. She didn't look like Spider-Man nor had a similar origin. SW was her own character. She definitely was not a female carbon copy of the male counter part.

It took me a while to finish this piece since the Essentials SW (volume 1) did not have a decent cover to work with. I think the original art was sold off before a digital copy was ever made. And what Marvel used for the Essentials cover was horrible. It was like a bad xerox copy. I ended up rebuilding the part of the background (brick building, lines in the sky and the guns in the foreground) and removing haftone dots. I think it turned out pretty well.
