The next arc of “Amazing Spider-Man” is entitled ‘No Turning Back’ and is, admittedly, an arc to somewhat tie into the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man film. Not only will it bring some resolution to the lingering Morbius storyline, but it will also feature the film’s villain, the Lizard, front and center in the story.

So how do we celebrate? With a variant cover, of course! Today’s variant is brought to you by J. Scott Campbell and features a creepy looking version of the Lizard that seemingly hasn’t eaten in a little while. It’s also closer to the original version of the Lizard as opposed to the more recent iteration of the character, but that’s alright. We can forgive this.

For the full press release from Marvel, please see below.
