    surprised hes leaving things must have happened behind the scenes first with bringing brisson on as co writer thought he had more issues to write. His run has been very steady some good things happened he defintly knew his spidey history real well but ultiamtley unless something happens in these last 10 issues are so he never had his signature moment or run defining story. If it is zdarsky which may be cool they keep the 2 to 3x month schedule casue more than anything that works for the amazing spidey book

    Tom Taylor is announcing a Marvel project today.

    I hope I'm wrong, though, and we get Zdarsky, Al Ewing or Jed MacKay.

    Can't say it's surprise, current issues really felt like Spencer wants to quickly get rid of all story arcs, before getting to the end of this entire Kindred saga.
    I wonder who will write ASM next.

    Probably it's Dark Ages. It would be strange if he would write Superman and Nightwing ongoings for DC, and ASM for Marvel at the same time.

    i wonder if we get another giant size finale issue for sinister war between 73 and 74. there's a month long gap there for the final issue. still feels like there's more story to tell as well

    Historically shorter Spider-Man runs are valued more than longer ones. And 73 issues qualifies as "short" these days. So if people are feeling low that Spencer's run isn't mega-long as Slott...believe me it's not a question of volume.

    I personally did think that Spencer had a lot more issues to cover...but at the same time, sales were high so barring new information, I'd think this was his choice. I am curious as to how it ends but we'll wait and see.

    Based on the FCBD announcements, it should be Zdarsky.

    Yeah, that Dark Ages story that launched in FCBD last year was never solicited, makes sense that it would now be launching around 15 months late, like Darkhold.

    Oh man so Sinister War is the last arc then well based on the cover for 74 I'm guessing Peter and MJ are triumphant over thr kindred arc. Also looks like that MJ plot of her working with Mysterio won't lead to anything serious

    It's going to be an 80 page epic!

    If Zdarsky takes over you know what that means? Marco Checchetto doing the inks! Hopefully.

    Taylor's announcement is confirmed to be Dark Ages. "Where were you when the lights went out?" was on the original FCBD story last year.

    I am not the least bit shocked by this. The only question is why? Think what “came first the chicken or the egg”? Did Spencer announce he is going to a Marvel competitor, so Marvel essentially fired him, or did Marvel let him know he is being replaced so he jumped to the competitor? My own opinion is the latter happened because of how long it took to finish Kindred ( especially because Spencer said he has “The beginning, middle and end planned out” yet, Marvel added a writer to help get Spencer’s run finished, but that is just a guess. What happens next? I am going to say after the Sinister arc, he will wrap up Kindred with two issues ( the last being Giant Sized) and then an epilogue type final issue ( very much like Dan Slott’s ASM 801). We should get more information if this is the plan and who the new writer is next week when the solicits come out.

    Okay, NOW I believe he's leaving! Unless ASM is being renamed, a la Superior...

    Seriously, though, I wonder if this run will seem less disjointed and unevenly paced when read as a whole rather than week to week. As it's wrapping up this quickly, it definitely feels like he was pushed rather than walked (probably planned 100).

    Edit: kinda hoping it's not Zdarsky replacing. Spectacular was a mess. A fun one, but still can't imagine enjoying a few years of that as the main title.

    The writing was on the wall with all these one-shots concluding story arcs.

    I guess the question is how soon before we know the new writer.

    Don't joke like that around here. These folks will see it as a threat.
