Marvel Preview: Spider-Men #2

Marvel Comics has released a four-page preview, accompanied by four variant covers, for their upcoming crossover event comic Spider-Men #2. Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Sara Pichelli, the series features the first-ever crossover between the Ultimate Comics universe and the Marvel Universe proper, provided you don't count every other time that Ultimate Mysterio has appeared now that Bendis has confirmed that he's the same guy on both worlds.

Along with Avengers vs. X-Men, Spider-Men has been the big Marvel story of the summer, looking to hog market share from DC who, up until now, haven't done a major crossover "event" since the launch of the New 52 universe last September. All of that is changing, though, not just with a handful of smaller crossover stories like The Court of Owls and The Culling but also with next week's release of Before Watchmen's opening salvo, something that will turn the summer comics market into a bona fide war zone not just in terms of sales but in terms of tempers as well.

Check out the official solicitation and preview art for the second issue of Spider-Men, out June 20. Also included below, a first look at the second printing cover of Spider-Men #1, which sold out at Diamond Comics Distributors and will be made available again in June.
