Spider #1 Goes to Second Print

Dynamite Entertainment's The Spider #1, which has received unanimous critical praise, has sold out at Diamond and will go to an immediate second printing!  Keep in mind that while the series is sold out at the distributor, your local retailer MIGHT still have first printings available.  Go check your store to see if they have this amazing collector's item still in-stock!  The series is written by acclaimed writer David (Black Panther: The Man Without Fear) Liss and drawn by Colton Worley, with covers by Alex Ross, John Cassaday, Francesco Francavilla and Ron Lesser!  The Spider, one of the greatest pulp characters of all time is now re-launched into the 21st century!  The issue #1 Variant 2nd printing offers an incredible cover variation to John Cassaday's issue #1 cover.

In The Spider #1, the world knows Richard Wentworth as a decorated war hero and the son of a wealthy industrialist - but only a few confidants know the truth. As New York City slides into violence and despair, Wentworth has transformed himself into a force of justice as The Spider! With only his wits, his technology, and his pistols to aid him, he fights a one-man man war against crime, but when a mysterious new villain threatens the city with an unspeakable horror, it may be more than even The Spider can handle. How far will a sane man go to restore order to an insane world? Find out in The Spider #1, which is going to a second printing NOW!

And ask your local retailer to order issue #'s 2 and #3.  #2 ships in June, and #3 is available for orders through the newest Previews Catalog.

And check out the dynamite Colton Worley interior pages shown here.  Seeing is believing!

Pages from Spider #1

And speaking of seeing, check out the glowing comments people have had for The Spider #1!

THE SPIDER #1 (COMICBOOKRESOURCES.COM): "The Spider" #1 is a fantastic slice of action and world building. It's bleak and it's harsh but it's all in service of the story and not just for the sake of it. Liss has previously shown some really good writing prowess and here it is capitalized upon. I just found my new favorite pulp comic."
THE SPIDER #1 (ONEGEEKNATION.COM): "The Spider #1 caught me completely off guard. I had no clue what to expect, and to be honest I had never heard of the character before. But, that didn't stop me from diving right in and loving this first issue. It's rare to read a first issue and love absolutely everything about it. The mythology of the character is deep, and easily accessible. The art is absolutely fantastic and you honestly because of those two things you don't want the issue to end. David Liss writes a superb issue, it's honestly the kind of issue that should get him noticed in the comic book community as a great writer."

THE SPIDER #1 (GEEKSOFDOOM.COM): "All in all, I can't recommend this book any higher. It sucks you in from the very first page and doesn't let go until the last. And that's what a comic book should do. I found myself actually lost for the 15 minutes that it took me to read this book. This is a book that I can see myself reading at LEAST twice a month. Once when it comes out and once before the next issue comes out… and probably a couple times in between. It's over-flowing with art and story, and I guarantee you'll want to revisit it between issues. So, when you go into your local comic shop this week, make a b-line for the Independent section and grab this book!!!"
