Spider-Man Comic Appearances for December 28, 2011

We've got 12 new comic books featuring a Spider-Man appearance or cameo this week, and we have a missed appearance from a previous week.  This week's issues include alternate printings and variants along with a few non-Marvel appearances.

Publisher BOOM! Town has released a "facsimile edition" of Too Much Coffee Man #1 (circa 1993).  The issue features a previously unknown Spidey appearance on page 13.

The other non-Marvel appearance is the weakest one of the week.  In fact, it's not so much an appearance as it is a complete spoof of the Spider-Man musical in New York (albeit starring Radioactive Man this time).  And while Spidey doesn't make an appearance himself, the whole story-line is just too much of a dead-on spoof not to include.

Avengers: X-Sanction #1 adds two new variants this week with the release of variant second printings.  Each is a black-and-white version of a previously released cover.

Here are the comics for the week:


  • Annihilators Earthfall #4
  • Astonishing X-Men #45
  • Avengers The Children's Crusade #8
  • Avengers X-Sanction #1 (2nd Printing Sketch Variant A)
  • Avengers X-Sanction #1 (2nd Printing Sketch Variant B)
  • Incredible Hulk #2 (2nd Printing)
  • Mighty Thor #9
  • Marvel Previews #101
  • Simpsons Super Spectacular #14
  • Spider-Man #21
  • Too Much Coffee Man (Facsimile Edition) #1
  • Ultimate Comics The Ultimates #5


Beyond this week's appearances, I came across a missed appearance from a recent week.  Wolverine and the X-Men #2 itself has no appearance, but the variant of this issue features a cover spoof of Amazing Spider-Man #121.

It was a fun week at my local comic shop.  Hope you have some happy boxdiving yourself.
