Heads up, Spider-fans! July’s solicitations have a lot of fireworks in the form of a slew of new offerings like Spider-Man: Master Plan, Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man, Edge of Venomverse, and the long awaited Spider-Men II – but all things come to an end, and Spider-Man 2099 has quite the forbidding solicit…

But that’s not all – Eddie Brock is still running around with Venom (and dinosaurs), Mary Jane is still running around with Venom (no dinosaurs), Gwenpool is now running around with Venom (just assume there are no dinosaurs for now on), and Ghost Rider also gets some Venom…? Wow, a lot of people have symbiotes this month. I should have made the whole write-up about that.

Don’t miss the continuing Secret Empire madness in Amazing Spider-Man and Champions – but perhaps the most important question that will be answered this July? Will the Spider-Man/Deadpool buddy-comic be any good after Joe Kelly leaves the book? Yeah guys – the cover is hilarious. But please don’t make it an ironic reality…
