COMICS: June 2014 Solicitations For SPIDER-MAN Titles Reveal Stunning Alex Ross Cover And More

The June 2014 solicitations for Marvel's Spider-Man family of titles have been released, and as well as promising that a vengeful Black Cat will be going after Peter Parker for what the "Superior" Spider-Man did to her, we also have another stunning cover from Alex Ross...

• Because of her last encounter with Spider-Man, Felicia Hardy lost everything. Now the Black Cat is back, and she doesn’t want any apologies or excuses... just REVENGE.
• Plus: Spidey teams up with a real hero, fireman Pedro Olivera... who just happens to be the current boyfriend to one Mary Jane Watson.
• And... more on you-know-who from the opening scene back in ASM #1. You know who we’re talking about. Yeah, that’s right. You better not miss this one!

Pencils & Cover by HUMBERTO RAMOS

• J. Jonah’s Jameson’s crusade against Spider-Man kicks into overdrive! He warned us! He told us that kids might try to emulate Spider-Man! And he was RIGHT!
• Meet CLASH, New York’s newest menace. He may be Spidey’s biggest fan, but he’s about to become one of his worst enemies.
• Wanted by the cops, turned away by the Fantastic Four, his grades are slipping, and he still hasn’t figured out this whole crime-fighting-thing. Pete’s not a hero... not yet... but he’ll get there. Somehow.

Cover by ALEX ROSS

• Four titanic tales set in Spider-Man’s past!
• Young Peter Parker has mastered his newfound spider-powers, but how will being the Amazing Spider-Man affect his personal life?
• Can Peter keep his secret identity from Aunt May, and his high-school crush Liz Allan?
• Spider-Man’s luck is about to get worse, as an experimental serum transforms millionaire Harry Osborn into the villainous Green Goblin!
• Spider-Man soon finds himself locked in a battle high above the streets — with Aunt May caught in the middle! Can Spidey triumph with a little help from his new fan club?
• When Kraven the Hunter puts Spider-Man in his sights, can the webbed wonder save himself from becoming the catch of the day?

Ross is amazing as always. He's my favorite comic artist.

Ross pic great.

I think words like "stunning" and "epic" get thrown around a bit too freely 'roundst here. Ross's cover is decent but anyone who's seen Marvels or Kingdom Come knows that's far from his best work.

But, I find myself bitching too much about Marvel's artwork lately. Especially Ramos' overly-stylized silliness. And wow, are Goblin's and his glider's proportions atrocious. And why is the back of Spidey's head pointy? And why does he look like he only weighs fifty pounds?

ARGH. I'll shut up now.

Does Alex Ross think it's still the 1950's? Why does he draw Peter Parker like that?

Also, someone said this in another Ross related post, but I think his artwork is hurt by the fact that we have now had several comic book related movies over the years. His artwork used to be the closest we would get to seeing these super heroes brought to life, but for the past few years we've been getting movies with Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Batman and Superman. I just don't think his artwork has the same impact it once had.

@RockNRoll Well it looks better than any other art of seen on this site

Black Cat looks pissed lol, and Ross' cover looks amazing aswell.

I am struggling to find anywhere that did The Amazing Spiderman #1 Ross cover.
Any suggestions?

As always Ross gets the essence - the slightly sinister feel of the original. Over time Spidey has become the class clown, and while quips were always part of his makeup, he also originally had a sinister edge in Ditko's rendition, that's been lost over the years.

One of the best things about the Raimi Spidey was that moment when you saw the sinister, not-human side of him in his final fight against the Goblin.

Don't really like the Green Goblin one. Goblin's face is too calm. Even the body language for both characters lacks intensity.
