No…wait…sorry, that’s The Amazing Spider-Man #1 that came out in 1963. Here’s the new one:

Dammit, that’s The Amazing Spider-Man #1 that came out in 1999. Hang on, I’ll get this right. Here is the cover for the brand new issue:

Shit! That’s the cover for The Amazing Spider-Man #1 that came out in 2014. I keep screwing this up. Don’t worry, I’ll fix it. Behold, the cover for the all new Amazing Spider-Man!:

Son of a bitch! That’s the cover for The Amazing Spider-Man #1 that came out in 2015! Okay…one more try. If I don’t get it right this time, I give up.

There it is! Finally! Looks like a return to some classic villains for the ol’ Webhead. And some familiar faces in the supporting cast, although there’s one particular redhead who is noticeably absent. But if we’re to take placement & prominence on the cover of an issue for what role they’ll play in the story, I’d wager Pete will have a pretty serious relationship with Rhino in the near future.

Thank you for going on this journey with me. You’re welcome.

  1. Marvel’s issue renumbering is ridiculous. 2000ad is on issue 2071 and it’s numbered as such. They might as well just get rid of numbering, if it stops people jumping on, publishcs as mini-series and self contained issues as one offs.
