Marvel Comics April 2014 Solicitations Reveals Superior Spider-Man #31 Finale & Amazing Spider-Man #1 Solicit With New Variant Cover! It All Began In Superior Spider-Man #25!


This last week has been intense and a roller coaster for lapsed, long-time and new Spider-Man fans:

  • First, we had the huge leak of the cover of April 2014’s Amazing Spider-Man #1.
  • Second, we had a facebook musing by writer Dan Slott that inadvertently revealed what was to come later in this week’s Superior Spider-Man #25.
  • Third, we had this past Wednesday’s Superior Spider-Man #25’s huge spoilers.

Well, Marvel Comics has released their Superior Spider-Man and Amazing Spider-Man April 2014 solicits. And they’re doozies
