Nick Furious 12/26/2012 Reviews

Dan Slott has been tasked with being the writer that has to truly take Spider-Man to the next level. Regardless of loving him or hating him; you can’t deny the man has made Amazing Spider-Man a must read title. My friends who don’t even read comics read Amazing Spider-Man. That has to say something doesn’t it? I won’t post any spoilers in this introduction but I can’t say the same for Marvel who feels it necessary to tell you the whole damn issue before you even read it. Here is the official press release for Amazing Spider-Man #700. Warning Spoilers Ahead….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Peter Parker Spins His Final Web in Amazing Spider-Man #700

A New Spider-Man Unveiled In Historic Issue, On Sale Now

 

New York, NY—December 26th, 2012—Peter Parker is gone, long live Spider-Man! In the special, once in a life-time anniversary spectacular Amazing Spider-Man #700, on-sale today, writer Dan Slott and artist Humberto Ramos bring readers the final fight between Doctor Octopus and Spider-Man! But as Peter Parker takes his last breath, his deadliest enemy gets the ultimate revenge by assuming the identity of Spider-Man and the life that belonged to him! But just how will Doc Ock be the Superior Super Hero?  What does it mean for the Marvel Universe and Earth’s Mightiest? Find out as Slott & Ramos re-invent the World’s Most Popular Super Hero like you never thought possible in Amazing Spider-Man #700! And the story doesn’t stop there! Also on sale today, fan favorite creators Chris Yost and Paco Medina bring you the Superior Spider-Man on a mission that brings his past, present and future colliding together in the must read, Avenging Spider-Man #15.1! But make sure you visit your local comic shop quickly, because Amazing Spider-Man #700 and Avenging Spider-Man #15.1 are already sold out at the distributor level—but  second printings will arrive in stores on January 30th.

“This is the single most seismic shift in Spider-Man’s history—and it’s not something that will disappear any time soon,” said Axel Alonso, Editor in Chief, Marvel Entertainment. “When Spider-Man editor Steve Wacker and writer Dan Slott came to us with this story, it was clear that this was a long term plan crafted with the utmost love and respect for the character. This is the kind of story that will have fans up in arms—but also coming back to the comic stores to check out each new exciting issue.”

On January 9th, Marvel launches Superior Spider-Man #1, an all-new ongoing series from Slott and superstar artist Ryan Stegman (Fantastic FourScarlet Spider)! Shipping twice-monthly, Superior Spider-Man launches a new chapter in the Marvel mythos, as Doctor Octopus strikes out on his own to be the greatest Spider-Man this world has ever known. But can he keep up the ruse? Will Spidey’s closest allies discover the fate of Peter Parker? And can this Spider-Man truly be a hero?

“The magic formula Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and John Romita Sr. created, which set Spider-Man apart from all the other heroes, was ‘Super Hero Meets Soap Opera.’ But every now and then, you hit a milestone like Spidey’s 700th issue, his 50th anniversary, or a line-wide relaunch like Marvel NOW!. And when ALL three of those things align so perfectly, you HAVE to go BIG!” said Slott. “Instead of just Soap Opera you go for HIGH OPERA! Spider-Man’s greatest villain! His biggest threat! Impossible odds! Life or death! And that’s Amazing Spider-Man #700

Introduced in 1962 as part of Amazing Fantasy #15, Peter Parker and his alter-ego Spider-Man immediately captivated readers, quickly leading to the debut of the Amazing Spider-Man comic series. Since then, Spider-Man has appeared in multiple television series, movies and video games, developing into one of the most beloved and recognized Super Heroes in the world. The events of Amazing Spider-Man #700 not only bring this landmark series to a conclusion, but also mark the end of Peter Parker’s tenure as the iconic Marvel Super Hero.

Don’t miss out on the story that’s taken the world by storm—Amazing Spider-Man #700 and Avenging Spider-Man #15. on-sale now at your local comic shop, the Marvel Comics app & Marvel Digital Comics Shop! There’s a new Spider-Man in town and he makes his friendly neighborhood debut today!

    Great job Marvel, way to take all the air out of the event that you mangled your character to create.

    This makes me so mad. Mark my words, this is the sound of Marvel's death rattle…
