JJ Abrams, Henry Abrams, Sara Pichelli Spider-Man Almost 5 Months Late

Okay, so, I think there are going to be a lot of late comic books soon. The words is out that a number of publishers will be reducing their schedule for July and a number of books planned for April, May and June will be slip-sliding down the schedule as a result. But for some comics books, that is nothing new. DC Comics has a bunch of favourites in that field, from Shazam to Doom Patrol to Birds Of Prey to Legion Of Super-Heroes to Inferior Five to Batman Vs Ra's Al Ghul.

Marvel has a lot fewer of late, now that Fantastic Four, Captain America and Iron Man got back on track. But there is one title that is keeping everyone up. Spider-Man by JJ Abrams, Henry Abrams and Sara Pichelli. Spider-Man #4 was originally scheduled for December 11th but that date keeps getting pushed back and back. And it is now up for April 29th, four-and-a-half months late. And over four months since #4 was published.

Here are the solicitations for both issues:

•  However, in ways that we can't really explain here, this issue turns all THAT onto its head.
