What interests me most about the whole Dan Slott leaving, is that apparently his departure was planned years in advance and that all his chronic lies are just to dissuade or misdirect (as is the point of the lies).

Dan Slott Leaving Amazing Spider-Man, Will Write Iron Man Series

I never thought I’d see you walking away from Spider-Man. Was this a hard decision to make?

This was a decision that was made way long ago. I gotta feel like a jerk, because whenever someone would interview me, or whenever it would come up on panels, I would look out at people and say with a stern look that I was never leaving. Very much in the same way I was saying, “Peter Parker is never coming back. I killed him” [during The Superior Spider-Man]. I lied. I lied horribly. [Laughs.] But that’s what us storytellers do, we spin lies.

Well, I don't trust in Slott about that, he said that everything was well arranged with Marvel, but looking into his behavior online and his tantrums in forums, Marvel may just dumped him when they decided to do Marvel Legacy and he is trying to save face.

Amazon.co.uk has revealed the secret of the Red Goblin (consider your hopes for Mephisto involvement dashed)

Go down Swinging! Norman Osborn has finally found a way to become a Goblin again and is gunning for Spider-Man in the biggest way possible. His new weapon? The Carnage Symbiote! There's never been a bigger tougher Goblin/Spider-Man story than this! Collecting: Amazing Spider-Man 797-801

Thank goodness!! May be it is just me, but I don't want Slott dealing with One More Day or Peter and Mary Jane relationship, not just because he is awful writing romantic relationships (any kind of adult interaction really), but he is totally against their marriage and relationship, so anything coming from him would be half-hearten and mean spirited, he would just cause more damage.

@animehunter Or 801 is his actual last issue, which I've suspected for a bit.

If Marvel Comics was clever they would ditch Slott in ASM #799 and get #800 to be the new creative team and use it as a big advertisement for what the series will be in the future (and may be teasing the end of OMD schlock) to gain attention of the readership.

The Top 10 Must-Read SPIDER-MAN Stories

https://www.newsarama.com/36694-the-top-10-must-read-spider-man-stories.html

All but one is pre-OMD, any guesses at what it might be.

I noticed some errors in the issue number for 3 of the stories here are the correct ones

  • Kraven's Last Hunt - Web of Spider-Man #31 & 32, Amazing Spider-Man #293 & 294, Spectacular Spider-Man #131 & #132
  • The Death of Captain Stacy - Amazing Spider-Man #87-92
  • The Original Hobgoblin Saga - Amazing Spider-Man #238 – 239, 244 – 245, 249 – 251, and Spectacular Spider-Man #85

@riscrit aka Spideyryan, @magnetic_eye, @theheaven_guardian10, @marvelman92

That is a pretty good list and no wonder there is almost no stories post-OMD in there, the person who made it used great character moments as the requisite, the only story who made the list (The Gauntlet) is there because (according the author) it gives character exploration of the villains, (the only thing we get in the last ten years). You can't get great character moments when depicting the protagonist as unlikable, incompetent and lacking any admirable qualities and a writer that treat him as a rubber action figure.

Spider-Man had a lot of badass moments where he uses his willpower.

The iconic moment at the end of the Masterplane Saga where he lift tons of rubble inside the inundating a submarine base to get a medicine to save Aunt May.

The No one Can Stop the Juggernaut, where Spidey tries everything he can to stop the Juggernaut, the adversary is much more powerful than Spider-Man and which Spidey's attempts are little more than a nuisance, despite that our webslinger keep going over and over.

In Back in Black when Aunt May is shot by a sniper at Kingpin orders, Spider-Man sneak into the prison where Fisk is, unmask himself in front of Kingpin and beat the living shit out of him, humiliating the crime boss in front of the other inmates.

Off course he said it will be important, this issue have Zodiac, the same villain that one year ago just saw the future and just throws away the upcoming plotpoints of the next stories in ASM in a overblown dialogue balloon. I bet the same thing will happens in January.

EDIT - By the way, I remember days ago,, that Slott mentioned in a tweet that now that he wrapped up Silver Surfer he will focus in an creator owned project. I ask myself what that might mean for ASM, due the fact Slott is so slow and lazy that he can't barely focus in more than two books a month, with him delaying SS for months and being unable to ship ASM two issues a month. People are speculating he might be out of the book in the following months and it might be other indication of this.

One can only hope. Still, it won't matter his departure if the successor writer isn't good so who would you recommend?

Hi ursaber, good to see you again! I sincerely don't know who would be a good replacement, almost no one at Marvel inspire me trust, the few I may would like to see are Robbie Thompson or Charlei Sole, some people speak well of Nick Spencer and I find him a skillful writer, but I don't know about him either. The franchise needeed someone like JMS or DeFalco, who deeply understand and care for Peter and could heal the franchise, but whoever might be will be better than keeping Slott in the title.

Slott says January's issue of ASM is important

I'm not spoiling it this far ahead. There's no hint of it on the cover or in the solicit. It's a secret. And it's important.

Off course he said it will be important, this issue have Zodiac, the same villain that one year ago just saw the future and just throws away the upcoming plotpoints of the next stories in ASM in a overblown dialogue balloon. I bet the same thing will happens in January.

@blacksuit: Slott's has killed my interest with Spider-Man/Peter Parker ever since the ASM issue 700 was published. In the now defunct Fromspring(2012) Q&A, I asked Tom Brevoort would Slott remain on ASM until issue 1000. He answered my question by saying that it's very difficult for anyone to work on a series for that long since there will likely be a burnout from the Writer and/or the Readers. In closing he goes on to stay that by the time when "ASM issue #850 is published, you guys will be begging us(Marvel) to pull Slott off the book."

I am not making any of this up. Those where Tom Brevoort's own words. It would seem that Slott might hang around until 2020 at the latest, which would be very sad as I have never seen a writer so hellbent on making Spider-Man a poor man's version of Batman.

I am not doubting you, but we should not take this statement so seriously, he said that in 2012, five years ago, much before the recent events, much before Parker Industries and the crisis Marvel dig itself in the last year and we all can agree that the Slott's burnout is happening for years and just getting stronger. Bleeding Cool said he would be gone by ASM #800 and I find this rumors reasonable.

Has Marvel given Slott another EXTENSION in his contract with ASM? Tom Brevoort once said that Slott's goal was to write 200 issues of ASM until issue #850. I am so tired with all Marvel's motives to single out Peter Parker as a youth oriented character. I want to see Marvel bring in a writer who can bring in new readers to ASM by incorporating characters from the X-Men, Avengers, and Captain Britain in Spider-Man's social circles and rogue galleries.

Ever since Disney bought Marvel, it's all the constant TV/Toy tie-in with the comic series, as well as bringing in writers who do not care about the fan/readers. I feel that Marvel management is comprised of those whose work were rejected by DC Comics. I think that the current management at Marvel are hellbent of making Marvel Comics into Yahoo!.....

Where did you heard this? The last interview by Brevoort said Slott would be out somewhere in the future, soon or later. If it is true, I am deeply disappointed with Marvel (again). This man is creatively dry and stale, he caused a lot of damage in the franchise and can wreck thing even further. It just shows why they don't deserve the trust of the readership.
