It has been 60 years since Spider-Man ‘Thwipped’ off the pages of Amazing Fantasy #15 in August 1962, thanks to the creative team of writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko. Now it’s the year 2022 and Spider-Man has become a larger-than-life icon in the world of entertainment.
According to a new press release from Marvel, Marvel Entertainment, Semmel Exhibitions, and the Comic-Con Museum have joined forces to present a world-premiere exhibition that brings to life the web-slinger’s entire storied history. Visitors will be able to explore interactive installations and expansive set pieces, learn about the many creators who have contributed to the Spider-Man mythos, and discover several priceless artifacts from the past six decades, including original comic art, animation materials, and film production elements celebrating the wall-crawler’s rich legacy while looking ahead to the future, all within a space that combines traditional museum displays with cutting-edge technology.
This exhibition is co-curated by comic scholars Benjamin Saunders and Patrick A. Reed, and designed by acclaimed Berlin-based collective StudioTK, all of whom have previously worked with Marvel and Semmel on the blockbuster touring exhibition Marvel: Universe Of Super-Heroes.
Beyond Amazing: Spider-Man – The Exhibition opens to the public on July 1st, 2022, and will remain on display through the end of the year, with tie-in programming and other special events planned to take place throughout the run. For more information, please visit marvel.com and comic-conmuseum.org.
