Spider-Man Comic Appearances for December 21, 2011

A fairly low-key week as Spider-Man appears in 8 new comic books this week, and 3 are variants.

The most interesting news to come out of the comic shop this week is the change in cover stock that Marvel is testing out.

Fantastic Four #601 is one of the first to be released with the new paper stock.  Not sure if this is a test in the cost savings in producing comics, or maybe a reaction to the glossy cover stock causing some rippling from humidity around the country.

Bottom line, I actually like the matte finish to the new cover stock.  It hearkens back to the paper they used back in the late nineties.

Here's the appearance list for the week:


  • Amazing Spider-Man #676
  • Daredevil #7 (cameo cover teaser on the letters page)
  • Daredevil #7 (50th Anniversary Variant)
  • Fantastic Four #601
  • Fantastic Four #601 (Camuncoli Connecting Variant)
  • Fantastic Four #601 (50th Anniversary Variant)
  • Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #5
  • Wolverine Punisher and Ghost Rider Official Index to the Marvel Universe #5


Have a great Christmas.  Take some time to enjoy your friends and family.  Then hit your local comic shops to help end the year on a high note.

Happy boxdiving!
