Too bad...I liked the other cover. Ah well. It won't stop me from picking up the book. Thanks P.

So did I. On the other hand--and I'm not saying this was Steve's reasoning, it's simply an observation--from a sales POV, covers with Spidey either in an actively combative position or even a neutral position tend to sell better than Spidey in a supine or defeated position.

However, if you're at all a bowling fan, it remains a bowling themed issue, including a guest apearance by pro bowler Kelly Kulick.
