PiercingMetal Thoughts: As I’m buried in items related to Toy Fair, I am just going to keep this simple and say how excited I am for the 800th issue. Though this isn’t the recent case for me, for many years I was a religious reader of “The Amazing Spider-Man” comic book and think that my storage container has about three long boxes for this title alone. I will definitely be picking this one up in May and wonder what you comic fans think about the matter. You can let me know down in the comments section below and should they begin showcasing any variant covers, you can count on my showcasing them here as well in a brand-new post.
