Eminem Rap Battles with Spider-Man in Limited-Edition Comic Book Cover

Marvel is getting a brand new character added to its multiverse – Eminem. On Tuesday (Nov. 22), it was revealed that Eminem will be joining your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man for a limited-edition comic book cover variant in celebration of the The Amazing Spider-Man #1, which was released in stores back in April.

Eminem shared the first look at the cover via Twitter and Instagram on Monday, which features him in a hooded sweatshirt rap battling against the superhero with a crowd of Spider-Man characters engaging in the moment.

“‘Like Spider-Man crawlin’ upside of a wall,'” Eminem captioned the post. “HONORED to be on the official variant of The Amazing Spider-Man (2022).” In an official press release announcing the news, the “Rap God” added, “I’ve always been a huge Spider-Man fan since I was a kid- he’s definitely in my top 5...so being on a cover battling Spider-Man is such a thrill and an honor.”

Fans looking to get their hand on a copy will have to act fast. The limited-edition variant cover is limited to 5,000 copies and is available to purchase on Eminem’s official website. On November 29, 1,000 copies of a spotlight version of the variant comic cover will be available for purchase at TheHaul.com.

In other Eminem news, Slim Shady opened up his "vault" and released a music video for his 2009 hit "Crack A Bottle" back in August. He also released a song in June with fellow Super Bowl 2022 performer Snoop Dogg called "From the D 2 the LBC."
