For April 2013:
-Spider-Man: Danger Zone - This is a soft cover of the previously released hard cover, no changes but astonishingly the price appears to be the same. It contains material originally released last summer
-Avenging Spider-Man: Threats & Menaces - This soft cover mostly contains issues from the Avenging Spider-Man spin-off but also contains last summer's Amazing Spider-Man Annual and a portion of an Amazing Spider-Man issue. It looks like the remainder of that issue is reprinted in the Danger Zone collection.

For June 2013:
-Superior Spider-Man Vol. 1 - This is a hard cover collection of the same final three issues of Amazing Spider-Man as is reprinted in Spider-Man: Dying Wish, plus the first five issues of the new series Superior Spider-Man.
They're also re-releasing the Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus Vol. 1 at the same price and with the same contents (the entirety of Steve Ditko's time on the character).

For July 2013:
Nothing new except for the Spider-Man: Dying Wish coming out (again? or maybe it was delayed?), which reprints the last story arc of Amazing Spider-Man before it was canceled and replaced with the currently-running Superior Spider-Man.

For October 2013:
-Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection Vol. 20: Cosmic Adventures - I think this is the first in a new reprinting program where a thorough and more affordable reprinting of a series will be published out of sequence but numbered accordingly. So while it's numbered as volume 20 story-wise, it's the first to be released. This is basically a slightly truncated version of the Acts of Vengeance Omnibus and a slightly expanded version of the original The Cosmic Adventures collection plus half of the Venom Returns collection. There are also three annuals that have never before been reprinted.
-Spider-Man: Life in the Mad Dog Ward - Never before reprinted 3-part story by Ann Nocenti from the late '80s with cool Bill Sienkiewicz covers. There are also three issues of the 'adjective-less' Spider-Man from the '90s that are kind of a sequel.

For November 2013:
-Spider-Man: Big Time - The Complete Collection Vol. 2 - Apparently they've renamed this series. Volume 1 was called The Ultimate Collection. Either way, there are a few peripheral books that were included in the previous reprints missing here.
-Spider-Man: The Gathering of Five - Never before reprinted, some of these issues are written by John Byrne who was the writer/artist for the relaunched Amazing Spider-Man that immediately followed this story.
-Spider-Man: Mark of the Tarantula - The first time this story from 1982 is reprinted in color.

-Spider-Man By Roger Stern Omnibus - Some of this is in color for the first time but I think just about all of it has been reprinted in some form or another expect maybe the excerpts from the annuals. This is a fondly remembered run from the early to mid '80s.

For January 2014:
Marvel Masterworks: Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 16 - The series has now been collected in the Marvel Masterworks format from 1963 to 1976. All of this material has only ever been reprinted in black and white since its original publication (outside of digital).
I haven't said anything in this thread for a while, but I just wanted to let you know that this is STILL my go-to source for helping me collect all the issues in physical formats. You are worthy example of our species, good Sir Blake.
