The Amazing Spider-Man, launched in 1963, relaunched in 1999 with new numbering, only to revert in 2003 to its original numbering has now been reported by Marvel that it will come to an end this December.
Spider-Man has been suspicious in his absence from Marvel NOW! announcements in recent weeks but with news of Amazing Spider-Man #699, #699.1 and the final issue #700 shipping in December we can only predict a relaunch in the new year.
Earlier this month Dan Slott promised “big” chances in Amazing Spider-Man in an interview with Marvel; “there’s so much I can’t say without spoiling Marvel’s big secrets. #700 will pass the baton off to what will happen with Spider-Man in the world of Marvel NOW!”
Obviously Marvel won’t be saying goodbye to Spiderman and we can most likely expect a relaunch as part of the Marvel NOW line but will Slott be apart of this or can we expect the baton to be passed over to a new creative team?
