Yes! May Solicitations for Spider-Books are here! As I’m sure you are all aware, May is the very best month of the year – and it shows in this batch of amazing covers. Check out the MJ/Tony cover on Amazing Spider-Man #12! Looks like Spider-Punk is rocking his way back on stage in Web Warriors #7 – and lastly, I’ve probably seen a creeper Carnage cover than Carnage #8, but I can’t remember one quite this spooky.

Enjoy them all – and as always, see covers and solicitations from previous months at the bottom.

Spider-Man’s life takes a grave turn! He’s about to encounter Tombstone — the highest-priced killer in the business — and the whispering hitman will make a big noise in the wall-crawler’s life. Who is Tombstone? Why is Joe Robertson investigating him? What devastating action will Tombstone take to put a stop to that? And how will it all end with Joe on trial?! Whatever the answers, the albino assassin is about to get Spider-Man’s attention — and the Punisher’s, too! Meanwhile, Boomerang makes his comeback, “Evolutionary War” breaks out, “Inferno” rages, and the Hobgoblin goes demonic. Carrion is spooky enough, but which face from Spidey’s past makes a ghoulish return? And when the wall-crawler faces Tarantula, whose side will Captain America choose?
