Cosmic Comics’ The Amazing Spider-Man #9 (Electro’s First Appearance) Las Vegas Free Comic Book Day 2014 Give-Away Mega Raffle!
As most of you know, Sony Pictures is releasing Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man 2 into theaters on Friday, May 2nd, 2014 (just one day prior to our Las Vegas Free Comic Book Day 2014 extravaganza) and not only does this sequel look to setup The Sinister Six, it also has an emphasis on one of Spidey’s oldest foes: Electro. Check out this trailer.
Man this looks like it’s gonna be good. Too bad for poor Gwen though. :-P
Mega Raffle Prize
Just as Cosmic Comics gave away Avengers #1 in 2012 to coincide with the theatrical release of The Avengers and Iron Man #1 & the first appearance of the Mandarin in Tales of Suspense #50 in 2013 to coincide with the theatrical release of Iron Man 3, this year their Mega Raffle Prize is The Amazing Spider-Man #9 “The Man Called Electro”!
This comic book was published by Marvel Comics on February 9, 1964 and features the first appearance of Electro, the main villain in the new movie. This comic came in at number ten in What Culture’s “10 Best Comic Storylines Featuring The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Villains” and a copy recently sold on Ebay for over $2000!!!
I could give you a synopsis, but the Marvel Database has a great one already that you can read here.
