New Spider-Man Collection Unites Marvel, Festival of the Arts
The latest installment in the Marvel Artist Series dropped this week at Walt Disney World, and our Spidey senses are definitely tingling with this new collection. Today, we spotted the set at Disney Traders, the Marvel retail location situated at the top of World Showcase at EPCOT. Let’s take a look at the incredibly fresh designs!
Marvel cover illustrator Mateus Manhanini designed the new collection, which features a baseball cap and an insulated tumbler. His characteristic sweeping colors and futuristic scenes immediately burst into view on both pieces.
The tumbler’s sleek design uses stainless steel as its base. Cityscapes sit in both the background of the design as well as the foreground of the landscape. With bright pinks and deep blues, the juxtaposition of color creates a vibrant night scene.
Images in deeper hues speak to the seriousness that Spider-Man still faces in his quests, including the proverbial mountains that he still must climb in his always-epic adventures.
The Leisure brand tumbler features a small strap to ease in carrying and a sturdy screw-on top. Today, the tumbler retailed for $29.99.
Manhanini Cap Offers Modern Twist
Illustrator Mateus Manhanini’s bright and bold imagery adds intricate dimension to another release in the collection as well: a new Spider-Man baseball-style cap.
The cap not only shows off the detail in Manhanini’s designs but also suprises with an interesting clasp in its adjustable back.
The same night-sky skyline from the tumbler features on the perimeter of the cap with Spider-Man himself diving into the action at the center applique. The cap retails for $29.99 as well.
Manhanini hails from Brazil and features his talents often on work for Marvel Comics, specifically in his comic book cover designs. To learn more about the artist, this new line includes a condensed biography of the illustrator on the hat labeling. We really like this personal touch!
The highly modern artistc designs could not have debuted at a better time, as the park wraps up this year’s EPCOT International Festival of the Arts over the next couple of weeks. What a great time to go explore!
