    That would require a run of 199 issues. Tie-ins don't count. He's a sixth of the way there, but it seems like a stretch.

    I mean I don't WANT him to write to 1000, but I'm saying it's too good for any writer to pass up.

    He is not going to stick around once his main story is done, plus he has other things to get back to.

    Too far. You're talking two years: who knows if Spencer is still on by then?

    I was wondering where the hell was Byrne in this, then I decided to check out the wiki, turns out, he only wrote 5 issues, I thought it was more until he abruptly left, I thought the Mackie issues were written by Byrne.

    If I had to guess what'll happen with Issue 50, I think it would be part of the story where Kindred's ID is revealed.

    It could make sense to open the story with a double-sized issue likely to get higher than usual sales, to make the milestone issue an entry point. On the other hand, ASM has had great sales using big # issues to conclude arcs (see #700 and #800.)

    I could be off-base and there's nothing wrong with Spencer finishing the Kindred arc earlier and kicking off something new.

    I don't know if he's setting up any major events for Peter. They could kill off Aunt May again but that would be a retread.

    Who knows? Something crazy, according to Peter's crazy life.

    Didn't realize until you mentioned it, but yeah if they continue double shipping this whole time, then #900 will come out in 2022, during Spidey's 60th anniversary (#700 was during his 50th anniversary, albeit just barely).

    After just 40 issues it feels like Spencer's just barely scratched the surface on what he could do, which is why I believe at the very least he's gonna be sticking around for that 4year-100 issue time period. Plus I don't see him leaving unless another project comes up he absolutely wants to do but can't for whatever reason.

    He has two creator-owned books to get back to, maybe other Marvel things, and it's not his style to finish the main story and then continue a run with an all-new one like Slott. Plus the heavy shipping schedule. I give him 4 years max.

    I expect Kindred to be finished before issue 50. Why? 1: Because a story arc can be ruined if it takes too long to end ( or for that matter too early). 2: Along the same vein, readers can start to lose interest, and that will affect sales. 3: Spencer has been successful at using villains in ASM, and I am sure he has more he is looking forward to using in a unique way. Just one ( Gibbon) went from an obscure character, to one who may be mentioned positively a Decade from now. I suspect Spencer has plans to see many of them between now and issue 50 instead of being bogged down with Kindred. The return of Doc Ock comes to mind, and I am sure will take a couple of issues, I would also like to see Mr. Negative return. This in addition to the baddies I mentioned before. Shocker, Scorpion and Rhino.
