Spidey meets Fashion (and a musical).

Photographer Annie Leibovitz went behind the scenes of the new Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, (yes, Spiderman is doing to be a musical) directed by Julie Taymor with music and lyrics by Bono and The Edge, to shoot this fashion editorial for Vogue's December issue.

A brief description of the play....

"Drawing from over 40 years of Marvel comic books for inspiration, Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark spins a new take on the mythic tale of a young man propelled from a modest rowhouse in Queens to the sky-scraping spire of the Chrysler Building, the bustling offices of the Daily Bugle, through the dizzying canyons of Manhattan, to new vistas never before seen.The musical follows the story of teenager Peter Parker, whose unremarkable life is turned upside-down— literally—when he’s bitten by a genetically altered spider and wakes up the next morning clinging to his bedroom ceiling. This bullied science-geek—suddenly endowed with astonishing powers—soon learns, however, that with great power comes great responsibility as villains test not only his physical strength but also his strength of character

AKA.....the comic book with music.
