We are about to get a brand new launch for Amazing Spider-Man #1, the fifth such relaunch for Marvel’s most popular character, from Nick Spencer and Ryan Ottley (and yes I’m counting the first issue as a relaunch of Amazing Fantasy).
Marvel has given exclusive retailer covers to a bunch of comic shops willing to order thousands upon thousands of copies. And one such cover is the following, for Stadium Comics, by Jamal Campbell.
The 3000 copy version…
And the 1000 copy version…
Doing his very best impersonation of Rob Liefeld from New Mutants #98, known for the first appearance of Deadpool and Domino.
Oh and Gideon too, but no one remembers him. But I do like how Venom’s tongue mirrors Gideon’s ponytail…
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #1
(W) Nick Spencer (A/CA) Ryan Ottley
An alien invasion hits New York City and the only one who can stop it is…Spider-Man?! But that’s far from all you’ll find here – a revelation from the past puts Peter Parker’s job, relationships, and whole life in jeopardy! And if even that’s not enough, you’ll see a new roommate, new love interests – and a new villain! Spider-Man goes back to basics courtesy of Nick Spencer (SECRET EMPIRE, SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN) and the Marvel debut of RYAN OTTLEY (Invincible)!
