Redesign Rewind: Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider Clan Redesigns by Skottie Young

Note: Although he’s gone on to define himself for non-superheroics in the Marvel Oz books, artist Skottie Young is still a powerhouse costume designer and his early work on the Spider-Man: Legend of the Spider-Clan series proves that. Take a look at these three covers sporting his redesigns of Spider-Man, Daredevil and the Black Cat. – Chris A.

Edited To Add: P:R Regular Kris Anka points out that Kaare Andrews had a hand in this, which is true. Although Kaare only wrote this below series, he did a one-shot previously which defined the manga Spider-Man design. For the Legend of the Spider-Clan series he revised Andrews’ design and reworked classic Spidey castmembers into the mold as well. – Chris A.

  1. i think you are missing a big point in not mentioning kaare andrews in this.
    that was some of his best work and really helped define this world.
    although skottie did an excellent job in running with it.

  2. I love Skottie Young’s work.
    All I’ll say is I’m glad he found his place in the more fantasy oriented stuff he’s doing now.

  3. I’ve never been a real fan of the super-deformed style, but Skottie always seems to make it work. I remember enjoying this story. And that Daredevil design is pure awesomesauce.

  4. I have most of this series. You need a pic of the Goblin in there too! But I really liked this comic, and most of the marvel manga verse redesigns.

  5. Spiderman is meh safe for the art style, daredevil i like a lot except for the black studded straps an the bandaged weapons, i would also would like to know how his lower section works. Black cat is all attitude, love the face, make up, hair, but all that metal in the suit does nothing for her, especially those Velociraptor talons, she would win from a more cat like gauntlets.

  6. The Mangaverse had a bunch of really cool designs. I loved the Sentai feel of the Avengers. You guys should do a review of them!
