AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 Gets Third Printing

The highly successful issue gets its third printing and an all-new cover.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 is one of the highest selling, most successful Spider-Man comics to date, which is why it should come as no surprise to anyone when it entered its third printing. To commemorate this fact, Marvel has opted to publish the third printing of the comic that changed Spider-Man as we know him with a brand new variant cover featuring Doctor Octopus on a web. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 Third Printing Variant Cover

It’s the story that rocked headlines around the world – Peter Parker is no more. Long live the Superior Spider-Man! Due to overwhelming demand, Marvel is proud to present your first look at the ALL-NEW, jaw dropping THIRD printing cover to Amazing Spider-Man #700 by superstar Giuseppe Camuncoli.

I loved this story, I think the haters are dead wrong but I'm shocked to see this go to a 3rd printing with that $7.99 price tag.

@DarkKnightDetective:EVERYONE!!!

Paying tribute a classic cover. Badass.

Posted by akbogert

@Sampsman: It is indeed cool homage. On the other hand, it's a sad commentary on how the same tactics -- massive overhype, promising to shock readers, etc. -- are intrinsic to the industry.

Love the throwback cover

did anyone notice the switch of ock and spidey in the covers?

This should be bombing. Not making a lot of money. Sigh, they will never understand...

Posted by Teerack

Because comics stores don't have enough 700's left over lol.

Posted by bladewolf

I'll be surprised if anyone buys this. By now, everyone has either:

A. Bought the issue and read it.

B. Knows what happens, and thus wouldn't buy the issue.

C. Doesn't care at all.

Maybe hardcore "I NEED EVERY PRINTING" collectors will get it...but that's a small market.

Awesome cover.

Posted by Ghostbusttyler

The first and second printing covers were the best. It's a neat homage, but is pretty bland compared to the other two.

I don't think they would be doing a third printing if people wernt buying them....

I completely agree.

A 3rd printing?? Are you f*cking serious?? The last 3 issues of ASM is out on trade next week. You bunch of money whores, Marvel!

Posted by Trodorne

I really don't think we really need a third printing, or a fourth or a fifth. It was a "Good" story, not a great.

Posted by Scarlet_Spider_Forever

This is actually really stupid...

Posted by Video_Martian

LOL, lovin it.

Posted by ComicFan93

why do so many people buy the same God-awful story over and over?

Posted by SUPER-MAN 23

3rd times the charm

wow, nice catch, bro

LOL at Aunt May becoming like 30 years younger on the newer cover.

Posted by Betatesthighlander1

I hope they do something cool with this concept. i think they could do some interesting stuff if they only handled this right

... You've got to be kidding, right?

Posted by cacarl

@bladewolf: not really. You know how many people buy the same issue just to have a difference cover? A LOT! If it wasn't like that, then variants will be out of question.

Y'know, I have never liked Spider-Man, but I gotta give Marvel props for a clever storyline.
