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.

The Disgruntled Greek

Sadly i am old enough to have been around in the Silver age of Marvel comics and religiously purchased 8-10 titles every month until the Marvel Reborn saga around 1996.

When you go back to the comics from the 60's through to the mid 80's and compare it to the dross we have now it makes you want to weep.

It is funny how the writers and creators were able to make superb comics month on month for 25 years without having to resort to character destruction or cheap gimmicks like characters being killed.

Marvel lost it's way during the late 90's and has never recovered. What it needs is a complete revamp and to get writers and artists who have a love of the classic silver age where characters like Spider man, Thor, Iron Man and so on were written with a consistency and a brilliance that has long been forgotten
