Marvel says that Chip Kidd's intention was to produce something that looked handmade — the way Peter made his first costume.

All orders from comic book stores have to be made by 10am ET… so if you want one, do tell your comic book store. The FOC for all other covers on the title remains August 26th, but this one will need a little more time. The Diamond code is JUL190834.

The variant – and the other covers – will all be published on September 18th.

It will also count towards a retailers' total orders, for which ratio variants will be calculated.
