    Default ASM by Spencer v15 tpb solicit

    https://www.hachettebookgroup.biz/ti...9781302926083/

    The collected edition for ASM 70-74 is on Hachette. It's not much of a description, but I'll put it in spoiler text

    spoilers:
    It. All. Comes. Down. To. This!!!!
    end of spoilers
    Sure seems like one of the reasons for King's Random and Chameleon Conspiracy one-shots was to speed us to something big in ASM 74 (875), and probably start a new course in ASM 75

    I wonder if the next arc is going to be Kindred/Mysterio/OMD.

    Just saw this and this to me means we will get Kindred Mephisto OMD stuff finally.Also bringing Mordo in this was a great move since he may be able to get Kindred to compy to Kingpin and Kingpin may only ahve to give the one tablet he has to Mordo.

    I doubt it. Why? I cannot see Spencer only devoting one more issue to Kindred, after all the he has invested in the story. ASM 74 ( 875) wound seem like an epilogue, even if it was a higher priced issue.

    My pet theory is that 74 will be the conclusion to the big "Peter finds out about The Deal" story (which is slowly percolating in the background still) and then 75 will be the start of his new status quo/possible quest (to be concluded to some degree in 99/100?). Finding out he made The Deal will take some time for him to process, then he'll have to figure out what to do after. Getting all of the other subplots off the playing field, as it were, in rapid succession, with one-shots and triple shipping, sure makes it seem like we'll be getting a big shake up soon.

    I feel like Peter is going to find out about Mysterio and MJ before he finds out about The Deal, but maybe it'll end up interlinked.

    I think this means Spencer is being quickly pulled off the book to make way for either Cates or Zdarsky.

    I think they're definitely moving towards Spencer's run ending sooner rather than later.

    Cates seems like he's taking over Hulk. I don't know if Zdarsky will want to write ASM.

    Again I disagree. In order for that to occur, Spencer will likely have to remain on the book until July of 2022 ( based on two issues a month ( I would imagine he will be tired after the Chameleon story so I cannot see him doing three issues ( or more) going forward)). Some kind of Don Quixote/Impossible Dream sounds great in practice, but very difficult to do In actuality. My prediction will be a dozen more issues, which would allow a new writer to take over in January of 2022. I see him taking a break and dealing with a villain that he has not used yet. It could be Otto ( although I think he will be saved for the end like Life Story), or Sandman or Hobgoblin ( Kingsley), before Mysterio, Kindred and OMD. I could actually see Norman taking a “Deal” in order to save Harry, Peter and MJ and everything reverts back to pre-OMD with Otto and Norman once again being Peter’s main adversaries and the next writer deciding how best to use them.
