Welcome to your first Covers of the Week for July! I hope the summer's pests haven't been bugging you too much, because we have a double order of arachnid-related action on the way for you today. One features what could be some future spidery bad guys, while the other focuses on a former eight-legged villain. Check these, along with your honourable mentions, out on the other side of the cut!
Ken: Five B-list villains but they all seem happy, even with the evil Spider-Man shadow behind them. It's a cover that reflects the nature of the book, and shouldn't be misleading to anyone seeing it for the first time on a store's rack or in an online menu.

Grant: I love Declan Shalvey's covers. He always puts so much care and polish into them, and this one for Venom #37 is no exception. I dig how the telephone and power lines crisscross to form a type of urban web, and it's even better how Venom's stance makes him look like a man-sized spider. My only complaint is that we don't (yet) have Shalvey on more interiors, because I know he'd kill those too!
