The variant covers eased up this week with only 2 that included a Spidey appearance.
And Herc #8 is my favorite cover of the week. This issue is a Spider-Island tie-in that features Herc clad in a Spider-Man costume on the cover. That makes two favorite cover issues in a row for Herc...a book I'm not really a huge fan of, but the cover art has been fun lately.
Also of note, is the release of Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #2. This is fast becoming my favorite Spider-Man comic being released.
Last order of business is in regards to Amazing Spider-Man #666. Anyone trying to put together a full set of the 142 retailer cover variants for this issue know just how hard it is. Beyond the costs involved, you just can't fully rely on receiving everything you buy. That said, I am nearing the completion of my set and will post something soon to commemorate the occasion. As hard as it has been...it's been a blast.
