MARVEL COMICS ENDS AMAZING SPIDER-MAN

Marvel Comics has released statements from editor-in-chief Axel Alonso and writer Dan Slott on Wednesday following the release of Amazing Spider-Man #700, the final issue of the series.

"This is the single most seismic shift in Spider-Man's history -- and it's not something that will disappear any time soon," Alonso said. "When Spider-Man editor Steve Wacker and writer Dan Slott came to us with this story, it was clear that this was a long-term plan crafted with the utmost love and respect for the character. This is the kind of story that will have fans up in arms -- but also coming back to the comic stores to check out each new exciting issue."

"The magic formula Stan Lee, Steve Ditko, and John Romita Sr. created, which set Spider-Man apart from all the other heroes, was 'Super Hero Meets Soap Opera.' But every now and then, you hit a milestone like Spidey's 700th issue, his 50th anniversary, or a line-wide relaunch like Marvel NOW!. And when all three of those things align so perfectly, you have to go big!" Slott said. "Instead of just soap opera you go for high opera. Spider-Man's greatest villain! His biggest threat! Impossible odds! Life or death! And that's Amazing Spider-Man #700"

Avenging Spider-Man #15.1, which bridges Amazing Spider-Man to the new Superior Spider-Man title, also hit stands on Wednesday.

Marvel has announced that both Amazing Spider-Man #700 and Avenging Spider-Man #15.1 have sold out, with new printings due on Jan. 30.

Superior Spider-Man #1 will be in stores on Jan. 9.
