Well this week was similar with the release of Amazing Spider-Man #666 -- the prelude to the Spider-Island storyline -- along with nearly 150 variant covers from comic book stores through the US and around the world.
So the world didn't end back in 2000, and it didn't end this week either. But for Spider-Man completists the world gets a lot harder to live in (not to mention more expensive) when faced with the daunting task of getting a copy every store variant.
All that aside, this week we have 10 new Spider-Man comic book appearances ranging from regular issues, to variant covers, and new printings of older books.
Here's the list:
- Amazing Spider-Man #666 (plus nearly 150 variant covers)
- Fear Itself #1 (3rd Printing)
- Fear Itself #2 (3rd Printing)
- Fear Itself The Worthy #1
- FF #7
- Spider-Man #16
- Ultimate Comics Fallout #3
- Ultimate Comics Fallout #3 (Djurdjevic Variant)
- Venom #2 (2nd Printing)
- Venom #5
I'm working up a list of every store who participated in the Amazing Spider-Man #666 retailer variant program, and plan to have that posted later in the week. If you are deluded enough (like me) to go after every book, this list will help. So will Ebay.
Good luck with your search, and have a fun week boxdiving everybody.
