Oh thanks! I’m glad you liked the issue.

I actually just started following a tumblr that is just Marvel cards. Here’s the link http://bigmarvelcards.tumblr.com/

It would seem that it is just getting started. 

Edge of Spider-Verse #3
Here’s my concept design for the character Kaori Ikegami followed by a panel from Edge of Spider-Verse #3 followed by the inspiration for the design.
Akiko Nakamura was a popular actress and singer in Japan in the 60’s and 70’s and she was my primary inspiration for the look of Dr. Kaori Ikegami. I have her album “Hit Album” and it’s pretty good.
The last image is a screen capture from the movie Godzilla Vs. Gigan (1972) I have a soft spot for this particular Godzilla movie because it’s lead character is a struggling manga artist. In this scene his girlfriend is telling him about a job opportunity being a concept artist for Godzilla themed theme park… He’s not too excited about the prospect.
As you can see in the panel from Edge of Spider-Verse, I’ve referenced the pattern on the girl’s dress and the outfit the guy is wearing.

虹色の湖 (nijiiro no mizuumi) Rainbow Lake — by Akiko Nakamura

From the album — Hit Album (1968)

Akiko Nakamura was my inspiration for the look of the character Kaori Ikegami in Edge of Spider-Verse #3. Check it out tomorrow (9/24)

Superlungs My Supergirl — by Donavan

From the album —  Barabajagal — 1969

“His name literally just came from me repeating the word arachnid in my mind until it started resembling a name like Aaron Aknid. I made it Aaron Aikman. It still sort of sounds like arachnid. Sort of. And yes the alliteration is inspired by Stan Lee, but I like how the sounds of the name Aaron Aikman kind of undermine the punch of a Stan Lee-esque alliterated name. Names like Peter Parker, J. Jonah Jameson and Otto Octavius all have a kind of strength. The hard consonant sounds give them some punch. The name Aaron on the other hand is airy and soft, and the name Aikman, sounding like “ache-man,” suggests weakness. I like how it seems to undermine the power of an alliterated name. It kind of points to a philosophy that I think is an undercurrent in this story.”

marvelentertainment writer/artist/colorist dustinweaver explaining his philosophy in naming The Spider-Man Aaron Aikman in my new robot6 Talking Comics with Tim interview regarding Edge of Spider-Verse #3.

I cannot wait for the issue to come out this Wednesday.
