Despite a huge overprint, Amazing Spider-Man #529 sold out Tuesday afternoon from Diamond.  Fans should note that retailers should be fully stocked on the first print, but Marvel is rushing the same Bryan Hitch cover, noted as a second printing, back to press.

This issue not only starts the road to Civil War, but also is the first appearance of Spider-Man’s new “Iron Spider” costume. 

“If this is any indication of sales for the Civil War event, we are off to a tremendous start,” says Marvel’s Vice President of Sales David Gabriel.  “Retailers should check their orders on New Avengers: Illuminati Special and Fantastic Four #536, the next chapters on the road to Civil War. 

“Thanks to retailers and fans for making Amazing Spider-Man #529 an instant success.”
