Derrick Chew Celebrates Cindy Moon's Thrilling New Saga in His 'Silk' #1 Variant Cover

Check out Derrick Chew’s variant cover for 'Silk' #1, on sale May 10.

This May, Silk returns in an all-new series!

To mark this new chapter for one of the Spider-Verse’s biggest icons, best-selling cover artist Derrick Chew has brought Silk to life in a stunning variant cover for issue one. Over the last few months, Chew has spotlighted Marvel’s greatest heroes in a series of show stopping variant covers, and this rising Marvel star’s latest piece is sure to be another stand out!

Announced last month, Silk’s next adventure will be written by Emily Kim, known for her recent acclaimed work on last year’s SILK solo series as well as the current TIGER DIVISION and SPIDER-GWEN: SHADOW CLONES limited series. This time around, Kim will be joined by artist Ig Guara, whose incredible work has graced the Spider-Verse on books like GHOST-SPIDER and EDGE OF SPIDER-VERSE. The all-star creative team will take Cindy Moon on a mind-bending journey where she’ll find herself trapped in a series of strange worlds! As she inhabits new roles such as an ace detective in Los Angeles, a train-robbing outlaw, a swashbuckling pirate, and more, Cindy will have to face old foes and never-before-seen dangers in order to break free!

“I’m thrilled to be able to continue writing for Cindy,” Kim told “It felt like I spent the first run getting to know her and now that I do, I can use the second run to explore how she’d change when thrown into wildly different worlds. But the true fun will be to see the ways in which she stays the same Cindy we’ve known and loved for many years even when in brand new environments.”
