Bleeding Cool Says Superior Spider-Man May Be Rebooted in March

The latest rumor from the mill claims the solicits are a fake-out and a new Spider-Man series will launch in April.

Over at Bleeding Cool, poet laureate Rich Johnston is reporting that the solicits for Marvel's Superior Spider-Man #29 and #30, which are billed as the third and fourth parts of the Goblin Nation storyline, are a fake-out. Instead, claims Uncle Rich, the storyline will end with part four and a new book will launch in April to capitalize on the Amazing Spider-Man movie, possibly with a returned Peter Parker (or Miles Morales or someone else) in the suit.

Johnston admits that this may be complete crap, and Ol' Jude Terror is inclined to agree, if for no other reason than such a marketing ploy is far to sophisticated for Marvel, which frequently spoils its own blockbuster events in USA Today. There's no way, if they were planning a new Amazing Spider-Man #1, that they wouldn't be sending out two teasers a day for it for months in advance. After all, what's the point of rebooting your comics once a year if no one knows about until the last minute?

It's all that sweet, sweet mainstream media fervor for new number ones that fills Marvel's coffers with the dollars of idiot speculators. A secret would serve no purpose but to enhance the reader experience, and honestly, while they put out some good books, I think that's probably very low on the list of Marvel's priorities, relatively speaking. Other things are much more important: impressing corporate masters at Disney, making movie deals, getting real newspapers to write about Marvel, variant covers, planning three or four super-mega-crossover events for next year, checking their writers for beard lice, photoshopping adjectives onto black backgrounds and emailing them to the press, Wolverine, and keeping Joe Quesada's blood sugar stable all likely rank higher.

So file this under "take with a grain of salt." Unless you're Joe Quesada, in which case that would be bad for your health.
