I said a little while back that I wasn’t entirely sure about this one. It didn’t appear to be a Wolverine #900 type situation (with only one-shot stories), but it does feature a very large issue number. Well, the facts are in. It’s a new numbering scheme, a new in-continuity story arc called "Back in Japan", and it’s large and in charge, weighing in at 56 pages. Plus, it marks Jason Aaron’s final run. His stuff has been excellent so far and he’s claiming that this story will take him "out with a bang." Count me in!

If you read Spider-Man back in the 90s, this one rings a bell for you. It played a central role in the controversial Clone Saga, which would become one of the most infamous stories in Spidey history. Though it’s a totally different thing at this point, the Scarlet Spider concept is still looks to have much the same meaning in this new series!
