Artist Dusty Abell creates an intricate artwork featuring Spider-Man and ALL of his villainous Rogues Gallery, adding more characters every day.
Former comic artist and current WB character designer and illustrator Dusty Abell creates an epic fanart piece using the ever-popular web-slinger Spiderman and its massive Rogues Gallery, where Abell is adding a new Marvel Comics villain every day for 90 days.
Created to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Spider-Man and his iconic foes, this massive fanart piece showcases the true breadth of Peter Parker’s villains, highlighting antagonists big and small that have influenced Spider-Man over the past 60 years . The Spider-Man 60th Anniversary Rogues Gallery Poster was created in collaboration with Jonard Soriano, who designed the Daily Bugle background, and Thomas Yamaoka, who painted and colorized the background, creating the perfect in-story backdrop for the Fanart of the Friendly Neighborhood Spider – Man and his many, many enemies.
Dusty Abell is a talented artist and character designer who has drawn DC Comics as is action comics and Batman: Legends of the Dark Knightand has more recently become a mainstream animator for Warner Bros. animated films, including Batman: Return of the Caped Crusader, Batman vs Two Faceand the Young Justice Series. Abell is also known for being creative The Official Guide to the Invincible Universe, an homage to the classic Marvel Handbooks of the ’80s. Dusty Abell began publishing the Spider-Man 60th Anniversary Rouges Gallery on April 21st, starting with the blank 1960s Daily Bugle backdrop before debuting the titular Spider-Man the next day, drawn in Abell’s beautiful animation aesthetics. Since then, Abell has posted a new villain every day, starting with the classic Morbius the Living Vampire and then moving on to others like Cyclone, Rocket Racer, Scorpion, and Sandman. The fanart poster is great because it really shows how diverse Parker’s antagonists are, from the sometimes anti-heroic Rhino to the terrifying and perpetually villainous Carnage. Check out the latest addition below, which adds the Ringmaster to the ensemble in the first image and then retreats to reveal the now gargantuan crowd of malefactors in the second.
The growing artwork, which is nearing completion, is a stunning tribute not only to Spider-Man and the indelible impact the character and his antagonists have had on pop culture, but also to the creators of these iconic characters that Abell provides in to highlight on every Instagram post. One highlighted Rogue in particular will be of heightened interest to Spider-Man fans, as little-known Spidey villain The Spot is introduced as #15 of 93 and will be a major antagonist of Miles Morales in the upcoming animated film Across the Spider-Verse Part 1. The cohesive look of the Spider-Man Rogues Gallery poster already looks amazing, with Abell using the villains brilliantly; various powers, abilities, and strengths to artfully place throughout the piece, and with the project only about 2 weeks away from completion, the final version of the epic poster isn’t far off.
Be sure to follow Dusty Abell’s Instagram for daily debuts of the next addition to this fanart poster Spiderman and his Rogues Gallery, the little-known and notorious villains of Marvel Comics, all gathered in an amazing tribute to Peter Parker’s 60th birthday.
