Spider-Man Comic Appearances for September 14, 2011

This is a big week for variant covers.  There are 25 new Spider-Man appearances this week, and only 4 books make up 20 of the variants.

Be sure to note that there are 4 versions of the Amazing Spider-Man #669 "You're Spider-Man" variant cover.  This was the one that retailers could opt to have a customized cover if they were willing to purchase a minimum of 2,000 copies.

Only four stores took them up on the offer -- a far cry from the 142 that opted in to the #666 variants with a 500 minimum.  You can read more in an earlier blog post.

Hopefully, Marvel will take a break on the personalized cover fad for fear of cramming all these variants down our throat and seeing more people leave the hobby.  My 2 cents.

My favorite cover for the week is from Herc #7 -- a Spider-Island tie-in issue that pays homage to Amazing spider-Man #100.  Love it!

  • Amazing Spider-Man #669
  • Amazing Spider-Man #669 (Slott Variant)
