Amazing Spider-Man #546 Sells Out

So for all the people saying they were going to boycott Spider-Man, doesn't look like they kept to their word.  I've already said that I liked this issue.  Despite everything that was forced upon us, this was a well-written story.  I can enjoy a good story as long as I can hold onto the hope that things will return to what they should be at some point.  Just like Captain America.  Steve Rogers should return and I'm holding onto the hope inside that he will somehow be back someday.  What's kind of funny is all the ranting and raving everyone did over One More Day only served to bring more attention to Spider-Man.  I'm sure Marvel printed more of this issue.  I'm sure comic stores ordered more copies.  It sold out.  Most likely there were people walking into shops off the streets wanting to see what all the hub-bub was about.  That's why it sold out.  It's the same with Iron Man.  People don't seem to really like him but he's getting attention.  That's what Marvel wants.

Marvel is pleased to announce that Amazing Spider-Man #546, beginning the landmark Brand New Day storyline, has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). Written by the friendly neighborhood dream team of acclaimed writer Dan Slott (Avengers: The Initiative) and superstar penciller Steve McNiven (Civil War), and kicking off the thrice-monthly shipping of Amazing Spider-Man, this issues launches a bold new era for Peter Parker as he must confront the new criminal elements, new threats…and search for a new job!

To meet the overwhelming demand for this issue, Marvel is going back to press with Amazing Spider-Man #546 Second Printing Variant, with a new cover featuring the spectacular interior art of Steve McNiven!

“As the controversial first issue of a new era for Spidey, Slott, McNiven and everyone else involved hit this one out of the park,” said editor Steve Wacker. “Love it or hate it, everyone's takling about Spider-Man.”

ComicBookResources.com’s Augie De Blieck Jr gushed that Slott is, “the perfect writer for a Spider-Man book,” a sentiment echoed by SilverBulletComicBooks.Com’s Dave Wallace, declaring Brand New Day, “a reinvigoration of the Spider-Man mythos and a return to the classic roots of the character.”

Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on all issues of Amazing Spider-Man, as the series continues to receive high profile coverage from Newsweek, Yahoo.Com, People Magazine, USA Today, The New York Daily News and more!

Now that Amazing Spider-Man ships thrice monthly, it’s three times the amazing, three times the action and three times your favorite super hero!
