Caught in the Web of the Sideshow Collectibles Spider-Man ComiquetteAugust 2, 2014
For Spidey enthusiasts preferring the wall-crawlers comic book aesthetic over his more recent big screen guise, the Sideshow Collectibles Spider-Man Comiquette is certain to leave their collective senses tingling with delight.
Designed by esteemed comic book artist, J. Scott Campbell (famed for his work on Marvels revered comic series, The Amazing Spider-Man), Sideshows Spider-Man statue is sculpted from high-quality polystone and features the rich colors, bold contours, and stylized proportions that have become so adored and familiar to the artists throng of fans. Sideshows creative team has done a masterful job of breathing life into the otherwise static piece by capturing the friendly neighborhood superhero in a dynamic pose with his arms poised to spin webs (presumably of any size). True to his namesake, the roughly 12 tall spindly Spidey figure is presented clinging to a vertical diorama base thats been carved to resemble the wall of a skyscraper. The nearly 17 tall, sculpted wall segment is finished with a painted graffiti-like image of the heros mask that further heightens the statues unique aesthetic. The limited edition, Sideshow Exclusive version of the Spider-Man Comiquette also comes with an alternate head sculpt that features a portrait with a raised mask that partially reveals the face of Peter Parker beneath.
With its marvelously authentic realization of J. Scott Campbells comic book vision, the roughly $300 USD Sideshow Collectibles Spider-Man Comiquette stands as the archetype of superhero statues. Even among the increasingly crowded assortment of Spidey figures, Sideshows maquette is another stunning depiction that no web-headed Marvel aficionado should be without.
