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.

You know going three times a month, issue #900 will be the first week of June 2022, also known as the 60th anniversary of Amazing Fantasy #15. Before anyone says anything, that Aug. in the corner is not the month it came out, it is the last month retailers could return it for a full refund.

I think that is why they went double time, to make the two dates to align.

Seems like the perfect time to have Peter Parker return to the role after a 25 issue absence. Maybe he will plan to retire, but be drawn back in. Or, possibly he is just really badly beaten and can't operate as the web-slinger for a bit.

I feel like if he were going to die, they would keep it a secret.

If they were going to get rid of him permanently, or even just had the plan and it was doomed to failure, it would not be Scarlet Spider. It would be Miles Morales.

Which I actually think may happen when issue 1,000 comes around. I mean, they will make that move in the MCU, and they will try to sync it up.

The real question for me is whether or not Ben Reilly survives his second tenure as Spider-Man.
