Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott gave an interview to Newsarama about issue #700. The highlights include this quote
What I can clearly say is that in the 20-odd years I’ve been working in this industry, I have never done something as big to a character as what we’re doing to Spider-Man in #700.
Slott also talks about that he will have to be fired off of the book before he’ll leave.
I will never leave Spider-Man willingly. [Laughs.] How could you? If you ever see me not on Spider-Man, someone had their hands tightly clamped on my ankles and dragged me off—and those long grooves in the floor? That’s where I dug my fingers in—‘cause I just didn’t want to go. But everything has to end sometime, and I’m very aware that I don’t get to write Spider-Man forever. I’m very aware of that.
These are the salad days. The rest of my life, I’m going to look back and go, “That was the time I was working on Spider-Man.” It’s going to be very hard to top that.
So what do you think will happen to Spidey? Discuss it in the comment section.
This isn’t the actual cover of ASM #700. Joe Rubinstein penciled it and Javi Golf colored it. Check out his Deviant Art page, it’s an awesome piece.
