Amazing Spider-Man #700

So the issue is going to be a big one. A drastic change resulting in the ending of the iconic, historical comic book series (with this very high-numbered issue), and leading into the beginning of Superior Spider-Man #01.

What's most disturbing to me is Dan Slott, Steve Wacker, and others who have worked on this project are receiving death threats since the big reveal has been leaked.

I myself have avoided any spoilers (anything I link here has no spoilers or clearly marks them if they do -- for the record) but for the rest of this thread, until after its release? I'd like to please keep this thread SPOILER FREE. Please.


My favorite part in Brett White's editorial:
You are the reason the Comic Book Guy archetype came into existence, and you are the reason it still exists in shows like "Comic Book Men." You are the reason that sitcoms forever see comic book readers as mentally stunted weirdos with debilitating obsessive-compulsive disorder, who shun the light of day and companionship of others. Cut it out. I'm not one of you. The majority of comic book fans are not like you. You are an outlier and you do not speak for comic books.

Now I'm going to relax and read comic books that I love. I'm going give some new ones to my nephews for Christmas and be reminded of how much fun this art form can be. If you are next-level-crazy about Spider-Man right now, you would be well served by stepping back and doing the same.


Anyone else a little repulsed by the actions of some overzealous, dangerously-outspoken fans?

I mean... I realize Wagner's fanbase is considerably smaller, but we never had anyone giving off death threats. Right??

Actually, we did. Chuck Austen got some death threats...

It's crazy, and it's inexcusable.
