The complete list of titles is available here. At the time of this writing, the official list isn’t up yet. Given how light this week is and my schedule through the holidays, I’m writing the column early based on the upcoming releases list. This should be completely accurate, since all product actually shipped last week to ensure timely delivery throughout the season.

- AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 – This is a big one. It’s also a great one. My local comic guy (who will go unnamed here so he doesn’t get into trouble) knows that I’m about to leave town on vacation, and that I hate spoilers. To help me avoid out of context spoilers before I’m able to return and read the issue as intended, he let me read a copy last week. (He’s not allowed to sell it early, so he found a loophole.) Spoilers abound, but you won’t get them from me. What you will hear from me is that the forthcoming Superior Spider-Man title will focus on a Spider-Man who isn’t Peter Parker, but who is a hero who needs to learn what being a hero really means. This is the most excited I’ve been about the Spider-Man franchise for a long time. Major kudos go to Dan Slott on this one.
