New York Comic Con Announcements

Posted by Spiderfan001 17 October 2011

Wondering what awaits Spidey and his world come 2012?  Many announcements were made in Spider-Man’s home city of New York this weekend that gave us a glimpse of what’s to come.  Here’s a handy list of the major announcements:

New York Destroyed
A lone teaser image shown at the New York Comic Con revealed that things aren’t getting any easier for Spider-Man or his city next year. 
First Spider Island, now this?  That's it!  I'm moving to Dayton!
Plus: Dan Slott said that Amazing Spider-Man #676 will focus solely on the Sinister Six, and expect the Lizard to make an appearance in 2012 just in time for the Amazing Spider-Man movie.

Avenging Spider-Man goes Digital

Marvel will be giving out a free code to download a digital copy of Avenging Spider-Man #1 to everyone who buys the print copy.  Depending on how many people actually download the book, Marvel might extend this offer to other titles.  Pretty nifty if you want to reread your comics without taking them out of the bag, though I still prefer paper. 

Don’t forget to check out our reviews for Avenging Spider-Man by our very own Combustible Pumpkins!  The first issue is due out in November.


Stephen Wacker promises that 2012 will be “huge for symbiotes” promising a big status quo change for Venom at the end of Spider Island as well as some crossover between Venom and Zeb Wells and Clayton Crain’s Carnage U.S.A.

Scarlet Spider Ongoing
Much has been written on this topic already; for details on the new series check out the article by bulletproofsponge.  Mister Mets shares his thoughts on how Marvel has been promoting the book here while Mike McNulty runs us through the list of candidates as to who the new Scarlet Spider might be.
Anyone else miss the hoodie?

Crossover with Daredevil
Amazing Spider-Man will be sharing a story with Mark Waid’s Daredevil in January.  Written by Waid and illustrated by Emma Rios and Kano, the story will run through Amazing Spider-Man #677 and Daredevil #7 and feature the return of the Black Cat.  Given Waid’s Brand New Day work and how awesome Daredevil has been as of late, I’m pretty excited about this.

And Finally...
Wacker stated that soon Amazing Spider-Man will have the tagline "World's Greatest Super Hero" similar to the Fantastic Four's "World's Greates Comics Magazine."  About time.
