Latest News: Amazing Spider-man 1 The Return of Peter Parker
You knew it was going to happen eventually. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last year and a half, Peter Parker died…On December 26th 2012, issue 700 came out to shock the comic world!
Continuing the tradition of no one ever stays dead in the comic book world, Peter Parker will be returning as Spider-man. The short run of Doctor Octopus as Spider-man or as he puts it SUPERIOR Spider-man has come to an end this month with the last issue of 31.
To tell you the truth, I never liked Doc Octopus as Spider-man. He is so serious. I mean, the thing that made me read Spider-man in the first place was Parker`s whimsical banter when he was beating the crap out of villains. Don`t get me wrong, the no nonsense, take no prisoner attitude of Octavius is great but the comic relief quips from Parker makes it more entertaining. I`m not alone on this note either since sales of Superior Spider-man are no where near the amount that Amazing Spider-man had. Many long time fans of Amazing Spider-man have not made the transition to the new Superior Spider-man title.
With apparent order run of 600,000 copies and a million variants covers, Marvel is definitely hoping that fans will embrace Amazing Spider-man once again. Amazing Spider-man 1 will be arriving on April 30th 2014.
