Amazing Spider-Man #647 [2010]


AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #647
A triple-sized issue that ends the Brand New Day era of Spider-Man as the Web-Head writers say good-bye in their own way after 101 issues together. The villains have been amped up, J. Jonah Jameson is mayor of NYC, Mary Jane Watson is back with the supporting cast after One More Day, and Peter has a new girlfriend with NYPD CSI Carlie Cooper. Great send off along with terrific Easter eggs as each Web-Head says goodbye and one Web-Head stays on pumping more Spider-Man stories. Dan Slott takes over as head writer on the Amazing Spider-Man books and ushers in the new era beginning with Big Time.
