Marvel Debuts Marcos Martin’s Cover For Dan Slott’s Final ‘Amazing Spider-Man’ Issue

Back in December, Marvel Comics announced that Dan Slott’s incredible 10-year run on Amazing Spider-Man would be coming to an end. His final issue will be Amazing Spider-Man #801, coming in June of this year. Earlier this week, Marvel debuted the cover for his final issue, done by none other than Marcos Martin, giving Slott the perfect farewell from Spidey.

Speaking with CBR.com, Slott had this to say about saying goodbye with #801…

“I knew for a long time it would be #801, because #800 was going to be a big all or nothing, blow the roof off, slobber knocker. And I didn’t want to go out on the fireworks and explosions. I wanted to go out on the curtain call. [Laughs] Something heartfelt. My best shot at a Stern-like ‘The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man’; a nice, ‘This is everything Spider-Man means to me’ kind of story as opposed to ‘THE GREATEST FIGHT OF SPIDER-MAN’S LIFE!'”

 

After his run with Amazing Spider-Man, Slott is moving on with Tony Stark: Iron Man, which will be illustrated by Valerio Schiti (Guardians of the Galaxy). This won’t be a reboot, with Slott assuring fans that “Everything counts,” in terms of past Iron Man comics. During an interview with Nerdist, he said…

“We’re going to play fair with all that’s happened to Tony from the very beginning all the way through to the most current runs… ALL the continuity counts. The legacy counts. But if you’re one of the billions of people on this Earth who only knows Iron Man from the movies, you can jump on right here for a fresh start.”
