Welcome True Believers! To the teaser trailer for August Spider-Comics! It’s going to be a hot month outside, but don’t expect these stories to cool you down – in fact, things really start to heat up in Amazing Spider-Man #31… wherein the Superior Octopus makes the final strike against Parker industries? The cover is gorgeous and reminiscent of a certain climatic fight in a particular Tobey Maguire flick…

Meanwhile the Spider-Men event gets it’s first look at our guys’ first challenge: Taskmaster! But is someone else puling the strings? Expect a lot of clingy ooze this month in the form of two more Edge of Venomverse books, and Venom #153 where Eddie is STILL fighting dinosaurs. Gwen continues dealing with her world’s Harry Osborn and Wolverine, while Miles faces his “inner demons” in Spider-Man #19 – the most haunting cover this month (if you don’t count Slapstick on Spider-Man/Deadpool #20).
