This is IT, True Believer! The Amazing Spider-Man #700 is the LAST issue of Marvel Comics’ flagship title starring their most popular character. Now, I don’t want to incur the Twitter wrath of writer Dan Slott, so you won’t find any spoilers here, BUT you’ll get the nuts and bolts of if this issue is worth it or not.
Slott has been writing Spider-Man a loooooong time. And, like he himself stated, this story began way back with his earliest work on the title, about 100 issues ago. First, let me say, the lead up to this story has been pretty entertaining. Not mind-blowing, but very entertaining. This issue, however, does have some VERY mind-blowing moments. It’s a classic Spider-Man story that will have fans of the series recalling all of their favorite issues, as so many of them have been told at this king of break-neck, beat the clock manner.
Believe it or not we are in fact coming up on the web head’s 50th anniversary! The Amazing Spider-Man comic, a source of controversy due to Marvel’s ridiculous reboot of the series, is currently being handled by the creative team of Dan Slott and Humberto Ramos.
For issue #692 hitting stores in August, the team is giving Spider-Man his own Robin with the reveal of just who Alpha is!

A few years ago, a circle of five friends attend Comic-Con International: San Diego, nickname themselves ‘The Wrecking Crew 4 Lyfe,’ and vow to return every year together. Flash forward to today, they’ve all come to the Con but jealousy and competitiveness have torn them into factions. All of a sudden, folks that thought they were suffering from Con-rot, that feeling of weariness and nausea most of us have when we’ve spent way to much time on the floor of a Con, have become flesh-eating zombies.
By the time we get to Fanboys vs. Zombies #2 the Wrecking Crew 4 Lyfe are among the few survivors left at Comic-Con. Now one of our heroes, Rob, is fixated solely on rescuing a celebrity crush. On top of that, the convention center has been rigged as a disaster relief center, built to withstand bombs and hurricanes, trapping them inside. And worst of all, they’re facing off against a horde of zombie D&D Cosplayers.
There are changes coming to the world of the Amazing Spider-Man in November when the series cuts back from its current schedule of three issues a month and goes to just two issues a month. Each issue will feature 30 issues of the main story and then will have a 9-page back-up story. Another change coming to the series will see the end of the rotating cast of writers, as Dan Slott becomes the sole writer for the series, although others will be writing some of the back-up stories. One further change will see a rotating team of artists handling each story arc. The three rotating artists on the book will be Stafano Caselli (recently on Secret Warriors), Humberto Ramos, and Marcos Martin. Ramos will be drawing the first arc, starting with issue #648. Caselli will draw the next arc, with Martin drawing the third. The price for each issue will be $3.99.
The Brand New Day experiment has worked well for Marvel, making Spider-Man not only one of its best-selling titles, where it should be, but also making it one of its most consistently excellent titles. It will be interesting to see how the book differs with just one writer as opposed to the large group of writers. Marvel has decided to give the book a new subtitle, much as they did with the Brand New Day title. Now they’re subtitling it “Big Time.”
