    I guess it was too much to hope they keep going as is.

    Yeah, it pisses me off, too. Couldn't they wait until they reached 900 before renumbering?

    His "Shed" storyline is considered one of the best Spider-Man stories of all time,
    By who? I like Wells, but that story is mostly regarded as, well, terrible.

    It’ll be fun to see Digger again, I guess. Even though he died pretty hard in his original arc.

    So close to a hundred to...

    They will likely make a big deal about 900 though but still

    Meh, they should've stick to the normal numbering. With so many "ASM#1" the thing gets super confusing for people who are starting their 616 Spider-Man journey. Or they could at least write on the covers the actual number and the new one marking the start of something new.

    I hope they continue keeping the legacy numbering also on there like they did with the current volume, and back in volume 2.

    I see no reason why they wouldn't, Venom which relaunched a similar time to ASM during Fresh Start and has just relaunched again has kept its legacy numbering on the cover the whole time.

    This. Cause really Retailers need a reason to order plenty of Amazing Spider-man regardless the number on the book. *good grief*
    What the hobby really needs is the 14th iteration of ASM #1, that will be sure to bring in that new reader whose just seen the latest Spider-man film this time. Bring back that strayed reader as well. *sigh*

    Haha, lets not pretend that this wasn't actually a thing that we are all guilty of.

    But seriously, Vol 6 #1 should be worth a fortune, right???????

    I get that you're being sarcastic but that largely is the reason they think it works, #1 is far more appealing to someone new than #900 and doesn't have the immediate implication of having to find and read that mountain of back issues just to catch up.

    It's a pain for us but (they believe) we're already buying and will continue to do so come hell or high water.
    Theorising that it could travel within its own timeline, DC stepped into the Crisis accelerator and vanished. DC awoke to find itself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not its own, and driven by editorial to change history *for the better* *to be more cohesive* *Silver Age nostalgia* *for the sake of it*. And so DC finds itself leaping from Crisis to Crisis, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that the next leap will be to a perfect DC Universe…
