A cool interview at CBR with Nick Spencer

CBR News: "The Superior Foes of Spider-Man" was born out of the "Superior Spider-Man" series. When it was announced that that title will soon be coming to an end, some people were worried Peter Parker's return might mean the end of this book. But the April solicits came out, and that doesn't appear to be the case.

"Superior Foes of Spider-Man" will continue, even after Otto Octavius' reign as Spidey comes to an end

Nick Spencer: Yes, it was really nice because we ran the solicits for issue #12, which the entire Internet told me wouldnever, ever happen! [Laughs] It was a bit of a milestone for us, and I can go ahead and reveal that when the book started, we were told that we had 12 issues. To get to go beyond that is a huge victory for the book, and a testament to the fan response, the very kind reviews, and all the great year-end lists that managed to mention us.

So we're not done yet! We're still around, and the bottom line is, we definitely have the time needed to tell the story that we set out to tell. In fact, we got to build it out a bit more. That's the good news.

Obviously, a book called "The Superior Foes of Spider-Man" starring Boomerang was never destined to be a blockbuster seller, but the very devoted following we've attracted has managed to keep us alive thus far. So a big thank you to everyone who keep passionately talking up the book -- and issue #12 is not our last issue! [Laughs]

Peter Parker is Returning, but Spencer's "Foes" Remain "Superior"
