  1. #1 Lockdown says:

    There goes Team-up for sure now. So, our second Spider-Man title is going to be Learning to Crawl the next few months. I think I’ll wait for the trade on that.

  2. #2 George Berryman says:

    GIANT-SIZE SPIDER-MAN #1 = A whooooole lotta “clean out the editor’s desk drawer” stories. For $5.

  3. #3 spider-mont says:

    its always concerning when Marvel goes out of the way to assure me that this Dan Slott story is a “reverent” spin on a classic. way to have your fingers on the pulse, Marvel

  4. #4 RDMacQ says:

    The giant MJ on the cover of ASM# 2 is promising, but I’ll wait to see what happens next.

    I’m surprised that Dan Slott is now writing three books a month, since he’s been adamant that he is only “comfortable” writing two books a month.

  5. #5 Phantom Roxas says:

    Hah! The joke with the Amazing Spider-Man #2 solicit is that Superior Spider-Man was better and that having Peter as Spider-Man is a step down from Doctor Octopus!

    ……………………

    LAUGH, DAMN YOU.

  6. #6 JT says:

    Which one is the main cover of ASM #2? Ramos or MJ?
