Not sure if this is a big spoiler but Ben Reilly is taking over as Spider-Man starting with issue 75 and the title is going back to a 3 times a month schedule.


The new writers on the title are Kelly Thompson, Saladin Ahmed, Cody Ziglar, Patrick Gleason and Zeb Wells.

The speculation is that Peter Parker is "dead" at the end of Spencer's run.

Oh well... I enjoyed the original 90's story until it just started to feel like that it was never going to end due to editorial wanting to drag it out. Not that excited for the 3 times a month schedule again. I barely remember most of the stories during the initial Brand New Day and took me sometime to get into the Big Time era.

See how it goes.

I saw this and literally groaned.

I am a HUGE Ben Reilly fan....... but he doesn’t need to “take over” the main title again! “Ben” there, done that! Let him be a supporting character in this and have him be the star of another title. (Like West Coast Spider-Man or Windy City Spider-Man) Replacing Peter again is simply too much! (I have to assume Non-Stop Spider-Man must be ending??) it also is a slap in the face to Reilly as he’s just a fill in for the character everyone will be clamoring to return and just makes him the face of what people will blame for not liking this part of the series...... it’s what they did in the original clone saga and they will do it again! Build the character up and make a book about him successful, make him the single adult Spider-Man book so Peter can be married and grow up, have kids etc (Aunt May doesn’t need to be dead for this, my kids have Grandparents that are alive)......don’t do this....... again.

Also, 3X a month again? A rotating team of writers? Zeb Wells is good, Kelly Thompson I hear is good, I’m willing to give Gleason and Ziglar a chance but....including Ahmed?......I personally do NOT care for his story telling abilities, his Black Bolt was “Bleh” and his Exiles was downright offensive to the fans of the prior series..... so this doesn’t fill me with confidence. I dropped Miles book because of him...... hate to drop this one now too.

I know Pete will be back in the webs and again I like Ben..... I just don’t think this direction is going to be successful.
