The big Spider story this week is the release of Scarlet Spider #1 along with its five variant covers. It's a good setup issue establishing the character's past and what his motivations were and are.
Just like the recently restarted Ultimate Spider-Man, this is a good book and worthy of joining the collection.
The weakest appearance this week is Wolverine #300. There's a back-up cover gallery -- which Marvel has been prone to do in their anniversary issues -- and blink and you'll miss the couple covers with Spidey. Strike that. Spidey appears in costume on a few (thanks Peter), along with a spoof of the 1990's Spider-Man #1, and another features Peter Parker. You don't have to tell me how weak that is. I know.
Here are this week's books:
- Amazing Spider-Man #677
- Amazing Spider-Man #677 (Bermejo Variant)
- Carnage U.S.A. #2
