The Press Release:
Local Comic Shop Day returns for its eighth year on November 23! The annual event organized by ComicsPRO, comics industry’s trade organization, celebrates the independent spirit of local comic book shops and encourages customers to visit their local shops during the holiday season! Marvel Comics is proud to participate once again, this time with two LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY VARIANT COVERS! In honor of the 60th anniversary of Spider-Man, they’ll grace the covers of November’s issues of both of Spider-Man’s current ongoing series: Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.’s Amazing Spider-Man and Dan Slott and Mark Bagley’s Spider-Man. Drawn by acclaimed artist Francesco Mobili, these dramatic pinups showcase everyone’s favorite webslingers—Peter Parker and Miles Morales!

PiercingMetal Thoughts: These look pretty cool, but I’ve long kept my stand on purchasing additional covers of the same comic book issue. I try to use whatever budget I keep for this stuff to be able to sample other issues as opposed to multiples of the same one. Truth be told I didn’t even really know about Local Comic Shop Day but I do think this is a wonderful idea because as we continue to get back to more sense of normalcy, our local shops need our business to survive. As more information like this gets released I will be sure to share it. I expect quite a few more comic book and film related topics with the massive New York Comic Con only a few weeks away. That’s all I have my friends, so you can chime in down below in the comments section. I will see you next time so please keep safe out there.
