PrintWatch: Amazing Spider-Man #55 Gets Third Webhead Print (UPDATE)

It was such an iconic cover, that it made for one of Marvel's best-selling titles in recent years. Patrick Gleason's reverse-negative image of Spider-Man, as if created by webbing, has also created a cottage industry in other "Webhead" images and Gleason, and take-offs from other creators. And now, Bleeding Cool's PrintWatch can tell you that Amazing Spider-Man #55 is getting a third printing – cover yet unknown.

UPDATE: Here it is:
