Spider-Man Comic Appearances for January 4, 2012
One. Can you believe it? Only one new comic on the shelves at my local comic shop that features the red and blue costume of Spider-Man.
New Avengers Annual #1 is it.
My good buddy in the Netherlands, Peter Kroon, passed along an appearance I missed from last week. And it burns because I was holding the book up until I checked out, because doggonit I didn't see Spidey in there.
And technically he wasn't.
The FF #13 variant cover version is drawn to be pared with Fantastic Four #601 variant edition to create a two page spread of all the characters in the books. The Fantastic Four issue features Spidey prominently swinging on the cover amid the other heroes, while on FF #13 you get a continuation of his web line from the other cover.
Now I realize this is a mighty weak "appearance," but there is a precedence. Back in Sensational She-Hulk #30 the voluptuous green goliath gets snagged in some of Spidey's used web lines (from the previous issue #29) that are hanging around town. It was too priceless to pass up including in the appearance collection.
