Spider-Man Comic Appearances for April 25, 2012

Summer is in full swing, because we have another banner week for new Spider-Man comic book appearances.  I found 19 new comics featuring Spidey...or at least Spider-Man-related imagery.  Nearly half of the bunch are variant cover or 2nd printing issues.

My favorite this week belongs to the Spider-Man bed sheets found in Wolverine #305.  And while the imagery of Wolverine all snug in his bed with his Spidey pillow beneath his head is creeping into my brain (emphasis on "creep"), the Spidey inspired sheets don't belong to him.

AvX continues to dominate the Summer with the launch of the new AvX Vs title pitting hero against hero in wall-to-wall action.

Here's the list for the week:

Spider-Man Comic Appearances for April 18, 2012

This week's 21 new Spider-Man appearances is dominated by variants.  Chief among them are the 7 variant covers for AvX #2.  And we have 2nd printings of #0 and #1 as well.

Aside from the AvX issues, we have a number of Avengers Art Appreciation variant covers for several books.  I'm not sure about you, but "Appreciation" is a strong word for variant covers that no one really wants.  Oh well.

Here's the list:

Spider-Man Comic Appearances for April 11, 2012

Sorry for the delayed post.  This is a fairly modest week with 10 new Spider-Man comic book appearances.

Next week's release of Avengers vs X-Men #2 (assuming he is in there) will have tons of variants.  They're milking that series for all its worth.

Without further ado, here's the list:
  • Amazing Spider-Man Hooky #1
  • Avenging Spider-Man #6
  • Avenging Spider-Man #6 (Granov Variant)
  • Avenging Spider-Man #6 (Checchetto Variant)
  • Carnage U.S.A. #5
  • New Avengers #24
  • New Avengers #24 (Avengers Art Appreciation Variant)
  • Scarlet Spider #4
  • Scarlet Spider #4 (Avengers Art Appreciation Variant)
  • Uncanny X-Men #10

I'll be back soon with this week's list in a more timely fashion.  Happy boxdiving!

Spider-Man Comic Appearances for April 4, 2012

This is a massive week for new Spider-Man comic book appearances.  The shelves were filled with 23 comic books with Spidey sightings at my local comic shop.

Avengers versus X-Men (AvX) #1 has been released with 10 variant covers, and Hulk #50 sports 6 variant covers of its own.  Spidey is featured in both.

The flagship Spidey title -- Amazing Spider-Man -- has three covers for issue #683.  And the Ends of the Earth storyline is a fun ride so far.  It's nice to see the Sinister Six back again and outsmarting Spidey (and the Avengers)...for now anyway.

Ultimate Comics Spider-Man continues to be a solid book -- one of my favorites for sure.

Here's the list of new books for the week...
