Marvel has never been shy when it comes to adding Easter Eggs and subtle references to its properties, and Spider-Man: Miles Morales is no exception.

The 2018 Spider-Man game had lots of little secrets that the developers had snuck in for the players to discover. Miles-Morales, while a smaller offering than its predecessor, is also packed full of things to discover.

Miles' solo-outing as Spider-Man in New York offers lots of collectibles and side-quests to pursue, all of which are littered with references to the wider Marvel universe. Both within and outside the world of Spider-Man, many of these Easter eggs come from story arcs, pop culture and more across recent years.

With a long list of media to choose from, Spider-Man Miles Morales has a huge catalogue of Marvel media to showcase.

There will be a prompt for Miles to interact with a hand-drawn book on the top shelf, however if you look underneath it on the second shelf, you will notice a stack of comic books, the first of which relates to the first issue of The Amazing Fantasy with its original artwork cover, which marked Spider-Man's first appearance in the Marvel Comics.

You can't interact with it, but if you go into Photo Mode you can get a closer look.
