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.
