Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. I'm taking a little break, myself. These 2 covers were just released in the latest Marvel solicitations, so I thought I'd share them here as well. The Iron Man variant is based on his second costume (I think) which introduced the world to the familiar red and gold color scheme. It also featured enlarged eyeholes to "provide a psychological advantage over his adversaries." I'm paraphrasing, but it happens to be one of my favorite panels in Marvel history.

Spidey is pictured below (Superior Spidey, if you haven't been following along) and faces a villainous threat from the land of dreams. Will he survive? Probably. But that's comics. I'm really enjoying this run on Avenging Spider-Man. The book seems to have a little more fun with the character, and I hope it shows.
