Perhaps the greatest creation in the golden age of comics, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s best hero has crafted a very unique space in the history of pop culture.
Peter Parker has long been one of the most beloved heroes in the history of Marvel comics and has transcended the industry as a whole to be among the most beloved fictional characters ever created.
There is no better way for fans to celebrate the iconic Marvel hero than at the event that places a spotlight on every brand under the Disney umbrella.
D23 Expo 2022 is happening this weekend, and it is celebrating Spider-Man’s 60th anniversary in the biggest way they know how, with a special comic book giveaway, and an awesome Spider-Man booth at the event.

The massive Disney event will now feature two special variant copies of the highly-anticipated Amazing Fantasy #1000; which is the 60th-anniversary issue for the character.
Both variants will be given to those in attendance of the special Marvel Comics: Celebrating 60 Years of the Amazing Spider-Man panel taking place over the course of the weekend.
The variant covers are a beautiful homage, not just to the iconic Marvel hero, but to the Disney family that has embraced him in recent years.
With D23 being a Disney event orchestrated to celebrate the countless properties that exist within that sphere, it’s a beautiful marriage between celebrating both iconic brand and hero
One of the neatest parts of both variant covers is that they also feature Spider-Man receiving a 60th birthday cake, commemorating the iconic anniversary.
