Marvel Teases End of an Era for Spider-Man in January

The beginning of 2021 will mark the end of an era for The Amazing Spider-Man. ComicBook.com can reveal Marvel's January 2021 solicitations for Amazing Spider-Man #56, #57, and #58. The issues are the culmination and aftermath of the "Last Remains" story. The story follows up on this week's big reveal about the identity of Kindred, the mysterious villain that has been stalking Spider-Man since early in Nick Spencer's run as Amazing Spider-Man writer. With artist Mark Bagley, Spencer will end one era of his run and begin another. You can see the covers and solicitation information for all three issues below.

“The proverbial chickens are coming home to roost in Amazing Spider-Man," says Spider-Man editor Nick Lowe. "Threads have been laid since FCBD back in 2018 and Nick Spencer and Patrick Gleason and Mark Bagley are starting to braid most of them and mercilessly snip others. DO. NOT. MISS. IT!”

The solicitations for the issues suggest that this story will change the way Spider-Man and his fans think about the Osborn family forever. Both Norman Osborn and Harry Osborn were changed in the vents of Amazing Spider-Man #50. Things are only going to get worse and wilder for Spider-Man from there, and even allies like Doctor Strange won't be able to save him.

Are you excited for the conclusion of the Amazing Spider-Man "Last Remains" story? What did you think of the reveal of Kindred's true identity? Let us know what you think about it all in the comments section. Amazing Spider-Man #56-58 goes on sale in January.
