Spidey Faces An All-New Menace (Literally)

Here's what I've been waiting for.  More Jackpot.  Who is she?  Yes, we all think it's MJ but...that seems too obvious.  It'd also be a little cheesey.  Almost as cheesey as Spidey making a deal with the devil...

This should be interesting.  I still think they're going to try to get Peter together with Carly.  I'd be really surprised if this was MJ and they were trying to create some tension between them.  But you never know.  Why should things make any sense.

The thrice-monthly adventures of your favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man continue in Amazing Spider-Man #549 as the wall-crawler faces an all-new menace – the appropriately named Menace! (duh) Brand New Day continues as writer Marc Guggenheim (Wolverine) and Salvador Larroca (newuniversal) kick off an all-new story arc. And as if that wasn’t enough, superstar artist David Finch provides a jaw-dropping variant cover!

In Amazing Spider-Man #549, not only will Spidey have to contend with the newest addition to his rogues gallery in Menace, but he’s…being sued?! Plus, the mystery surrounding the dead bodies tagged with spider-tracers deepens! It’s more of that ol’ Parker luck for Webhead, but he’s about to receive a helping hand from New York’s newest, red-headiest super hero –Jackpot!

Brand New Day has been met with great reviews as the first issue of Spider-Man’s new era, Amazing Spider-Man #546, has sold out at Diamond (though copies may be available at the retail level). But don’t worry as Amazing Spider-Man #546 Second Printing Variant, with a new cover featuring the spectacular interior art of Steve McNiven, is on its way!

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!
