COMICS: Marvel's April Solicitations Reveal Symbiote Event, Spidey's New Roomie And More

We don't have the cover art for any of these titles just yet, but if you want details on Marvel's secret symbiote event this summer, Peter Parker's new superhero roommate, the new writer of Wolverine and more, hit the jump.



Bleeding Cool has managed to get their hands on Marvel's April 2012 solicitations (minus the covers) and below are just some of the highlights. In Amazing Spider-Man, Dan Slott's epic "Ends of the Earth" event is clearly going to push Spidey and the Avengers to their limits. Speaking of Avengers, it appears that Brian Michael Bendis' last arc will be the Avengers Vs. X-Men tie-in's - where does that leave "Age of Ultron"? We also have a reprint of the first ever issue of Avengers (just in time for the movie!) and the reveal of a secret summer symbiote event, Peter Parker's new roomie and a new writer for Wolverine.
