Spider-Woman’s co-creator was born 91 years ago…

You mighta heard this week that Olivia Wilde has been tapped to direct a Marvel flick rumored to be about Spider-Woman.

Fans have been pretty excited by the news, and it just so happens that her co-creator — the late, great Marie Severin — was born 91 years ago Thursday.

So here’s a 13 COVERS birthday salute topped by some Severin Spider-Woman covers, plus some other faves.

  1. I really love Ms. Severin’s cover to Tales to Astonish 97. The Hulk image was lifted and used on a t-shirt just a few years ago.


    She also did one of my all-time favorite Spider-Man covers, Amazing Spider-Man 82:


    Thought this might be a bit of a rarity that some readers haven’t seen. Marvel Tales 28. Marvel commissioned a new cover instead of using the cover for one of the issues reprinted. Bill Everett inks on this one.
