    Default Oh Look. The News Stand Edition Of Amazing Spider-Man #698 Had A Slightly Different Cover.

    Here is the cover for Amazing Spider-Man #698 as sold in comic stores.



    And here is the same comic, as bought on the newsstand.



    The "Spider-Man" on the Fifty Years badge is rather shattered and worn away...

    After Christmas duties today I rather feel the same.

    UPDATE: Or is it the other way round?

    Um, my direct market copy purchased from DCBS.com has the shattered logo. Along with the creator names which are missing from your first picture.

    Ditto, I bought mine from FP in Edinburgh, and even mentioned the shattered logo in my review on the day it come out. Was yours not a digital copy, Rich?

    ...which seems only appropriate, all things considered.

    Wait. They still release Marvel titles on newsstands? I haven't seen a Marvel comic at the local Chapters book store or Sobeys supermarket that used to carry them up until 8 or so months back (around the time Rich's story about Marvel reducing their newsstand presence hit).

    Have a good day.

    We've never stopped releasing titles to newsstands. But it's not the huge market it once was.

    Weird. They should all have the shattered logo.
