Ever since they were little boys, Chris and Joe dreamed of receiving the email they got from Marvel, asking them to do these Spider-Gwen pages. They previously did four sample pages that were pulled straight from a scene in Spider-Man II.
At a convention, one of their favorite artists told them to translate the diner scene where Dr. Ock throws a car through a window and send the pages to Marvel, so that’s what they did — it worked.
The pages you see here were created nearly a year after those first ones though, so Chris and Joe really worked out a lot of kinks in their process. They worked their butts off to make each page extremely special and they think those lovely people at Marvel could see that from the feedback received.
