In less than a day, Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #2 and both the regular and variant version of New X-Men #20 have sold out at Diamond.  As a result of how quickly these issues disappeared from Diamond, Marvel has announced they are going back to press immediately on both with second printing variant covers.     

The Other continues to be a huge hit with retailers and fans as Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #2, part 4 of the Spider-Man event, is also the fourth consecutive sellout. 

The second printing variant cover of Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man #2 will follow the same theme as the three that preceded it, featuring a Mike Wieringo Spider-Man in one of his different costumes through the years.  This time up it’s the “Bag-Headed Fantastic Four” Spider-Man costume, seen in the sketch provided by Wieringo. 

Peter David wrote the first three issues of the Spider-Man: The Other event, which were all quick sellouts, and now Reginald Hudlin is continuing that success as he begins Act Two with an nearly instantaneous sellout.   

The other sellout, New X-Men #20, marks a new era for the students of the Xavier Institute, which kicked off in grand style with both the regular and variant cover selling out at Diamond.

“New X-Men #20 redefines the “All-New, All-Different” concept in ways most readers won’t expect,” says editor Mike Marts. “This isn’t a book about learning how to control your mutant powers anymore, it’s a book about learning how to survive.” 

Be sure to be on the lookout next week when the second printing variant cover for New X-Men #20 is revealed and be sure to pick up these smoking hot second printing variants when they are released before they’re gone as quickly as they came.
