Marvel Plans More Numbering Shenanigans with Amazing Spider-Man #16.HU in March

Posted by December 18, 2018 Comment

If you thought the whole dual numbering system was difficult enough to understand, you’re probably not going to be very pleased with Marvel’s plans for Amazing Spider-Man in March. That month kicks off the Hunted storyline in Amazing Spider-Man #17, which sees Kraven the Hunter return for what Marvel is billing as a “huge” storyline.

So huge, in fact, that it cannot be contained in a single ongoing title. That’s right, in addition to Amazing Spider-Man #17 and #18, March will also see the release of Amazing Spider-Man #16.HU, not to be confused with February’s Amazing Spider-Man #16.

Where will it fit in with Legacy numbering? Who knows?! It’s a chance to sell three Amazing Spider-Man books in March, and that’s all that really matters to Marvel after all.

Check out the solicitations below:

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
