Spider-Man Comic Appearances for August 3, 2011

This was a modest-sized week for Spider-Man comic appearances with 10 regular issues, second printings, variants and magazines.

The biggest news from the week seems to be in regards to Ultimate Fallout #4 and its introduction of the new Spider-Man.  While this is seemingly big news to most of the world -- or at least all of the 24-hour news services who crave anything to talk about -- I don't know how big it really is.

From a completist standpoint, do you continue to collect Ultimate Spider-Man when this new character takes over.  Is it the costume we collect, or the person inside.  There is a precedence here as Spider-Man 2099 is considered to be part of the Spider-Man completist lore and that was a different character all together too.

When it's all said and done, I will be collecting the new character, but I'm certainly not as excited about the change as the news pundits around the country.

Here's the full list for this week:

  • Marvel Previews #96
  • Moon Knight #4
  • Spider-Man With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility #5
  • Thor Heaven and Earth #2
  • Ultimate Comics Fallout #4
  • Ultimate Comics Fallout #4 (Djurdjevic Variant)
  • Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #160 (2nd Printing)
  • X-23 #13

Now for the following books, my local comic shop didn't have them in stock on Wednesday but I would imagine Spidey makes an appearance in both:

  • Fear Itself Poster Book
  • Marvel Super Stars Magazine #6

I will update the list to confirm this once I have the books in-hand.

Have a great week boxdiving at your local comic shop!
