The final two issues of J.J. Abrams, Henry Abrams, and Sarah Pichelli's Spider-Man title have been postponed again.
Spider-Man #4 was originally solicited to arrive December 11, but was pushed back once to February 19 and now to an April 8 release date.
Spider-Man #5, the series' finale, is now scheduled for a May 27 release after moving off previous January 29 and April 15 dates.
The last released issue of the series, #3, came out December 18 after it was also postponed.
Marvel has not given a reason for these schedule changes.

• Now that issue #1 is out, can we finally talk about this?
• Ben Parker, the son of Peter and Mary Jane, has had a lot thrown at him the last few weeks.
• Normal high school stuff: met the love of his life, stood up to a bully, found out his dad was Spider-Man and that he has powers, too,
and the super-villain that changed everything is out to get him… Yep, normal high school stuff.
• However, in ways that we can’t really explain here, this issue turns all THAT onto its head.

• Ben Parker and his dad are cornered and surely beaten.
• Their allies that they thought could help them weren’t enough.
• The son of Mary Jane and Spider-Man has an unwinnable fight on his hands… have his absentee dad and dead mother taught him enough to know what Spider-Man does in these situations?
