Dan Slott has said that he will be keeping a low profile following the major events of Marvel Comics’ forthcoming, landmark issue.
“#700 is big,” Slott told Newsarama.
“What I can clearly say is that in the 20-odd years I’ve been working in this industry, I have never done something as big to a character as what we’re doing to Spider-Man in #700.
“I’m very serious – after #700 comes out, I’m not doing interviews for a bit. I’m not sticking my head up out of the hole. People are going to be like, ‘What have you done?’ and the message on my machine will just say, ‘Keep reading’.”
Slott said that the events of the issue have been set up over a longer period than fans will have realised.
“I will say this – once ‘Ends of the Earth’ ended, everything has been building to #700 in some way. Every story arc has pieces of the puzzle to what’s coming up in #700,” he explained.
“I think when you get there you’ll see – especially in #699 – that you’ve been given a lot more of these building blocks over the years than you’ve realised. Years!”
Amazing Spider-Man #700 will debut in December.
