52 weeks of the year and Marvel were determined to make the 52nd week count with the final issue of Amazing Spider-Man in stores on Boxing Day here in the UK delivering the Peter Parker’s final scene. This story line has made the headlines worldwide and sadden readers. Dan Slott the writer of Amazing Spider-Man even receiving death threats all of this has led to issue #700 selling out at distributor level and Marvel are bringing it back in stores on the in January 2013.
The 700th issue sees Doctor Octopus promising to continue the mantle of Spider-Man in Peter Parker’s body. As a long time Spider-Man fan I was incredibly disappointed to see Peter Parker die but I’m interested to see where the franchise goes from here. See you in 2013 Spider-Man.
